This song is not in a battle


I would love to have a real Sax playing in this. ARE THERE ANY SAX PLAYERS WANT TO COLLAB ON THIS?

I think the bass drum is a bit heavy for the music, trying find alternatives. Yep, Real drummer hard to find, but never the less would be real nice too

May add some strings.

Any comments would be great

Cheers

Denis

wow...your music reminds me a lot of Nemo6(on the amp here)  music..this is really nice Denis..and very chilled and kicked back...I dont think the bass drum is to loud..I think it sets the song off...I like it...your guitar playing is really smooth here...overall nice work

I play sax (and I am willing to collab)
I like this style of music;it reminds me off something I would be listening to on a nice relaxing cruise.
I think maybe some saxophone,a bit of trumpet.A bit of jazz vibe with a little spice.
But I think maybe strings would be bit to overbearing.
Other than that,love it.

Nice. I like jazz quite a bit, and this is very cool, relaxing stuff. Good acoustic tone.

What a nice vibe.  Loving the whole feel of this song - chilled out yet somehow romantic at the same time.  Brings back some fond memories for sure.
Only minor criticism would be in the few instances when the instruments fade a little, the kick drum sounds like it has a little too much reverb on it.  I only noticed about twice throughout the entire song tho, so as I say, only a minor issue for me.  Other than that the mix is really good - nicely balanced!

10 out of 10 for observations, I noticed the same things after uploading the track. The fading part is where I was unsure what I  was going to play next, so not enough practice before I recorded the lead. Although I intesionaly added the reverb to the drums to give more presence.

Thanx for you kind words

what about some vocals?
I really like the mood of the track nice loudge music and I think a nice jazzy female vocal would add to the mood
I don't know if there's many female singer on the Amp but it might be worth a try
A very good song well done

Although I'd always keep the original instrumental version, just to chill to, I gotta agree with you that that would sound really nice.

Good work.  You've got that Denis touch to this acoustic jazz track.  I again have to fault the drums for sounding too artificial, but I understand the pain of doing the best you can with a drum machine.  The bass drum isn't too heavy, in fact, I think it lacks presence.  The bass was tight and didn't steal focus away from the guitar.  Speaking of which, the guitar work here isn't your best---it's a bit messier than I usually hear from you.  Granted though,  the chord progression was nice and you really added some sparkle with the hammer-ons/pull-offs.

All your stuff seems to be just simple mellow jams.  I'd love for you to do a structured song with a full set of lyrics and a form and flow that is easier to follow.  It would be a major step forward in your song-writing and, in my opinion, a step that you need to take.  This track got a little repetitive towards the end, and I sort of dazed off in the middle of my second listening.

Not bad suggestion for female vox, need lyrics too. If any one interested let me know

I haven't practiced as much as would have liked too, it's been a busy week with many other things to sort out.
I just wanted to get this song in a basic format really to build on. It's the progression that's really interesting for me, totally unique as far as I'm aware. Ideally this song needs to be preformed live, and the lead I think would sound better with sax & brass section or even an orchestral set up. But hey you will just have to put up with me for now.

As for lyrics, as you know this is not natural for me to create or at least it's the music creating side I enjoy. My friend Graham (who is a great lyricist in my opinion) was getting better from meningitis after being off work for a year, spoke to him this week and he's getting bad again. My heart goes out to him, so far nobody on the AMP has collaborated with me on Lyrics (with the exception of you that is Av). Maybe one day
The fact is I love what I do with my music, I get a great deal of satisfaction when I've created a new song and listen back to it, I'm improving all the time as we all do when we try. If people like what I do it's a bonus.
BandAMP is a great site, this for me is so much fun, I've made some great friends. Long may it continue.

Thanks Av for you comments, you put real effort with, Much respect for that.

LOL! Did someone shout at you to stop? !!

I've little to add but that I agree with that man, Avi, over there (looks upwards) lol

Funny how, I also wanted to suggest you and Vincent get together, it's not that far! Take a weekend away to Edwardstone, it really is a wonderful place.......once you find it!  
But I really do think you two could make a very special sound together.

Really nice guitar work.
The only suggestion i would give you is to input some electric guitar soloing.

I did think of adding a solo, but I wasn't confident, hence there are many key changes, I should have at least had a go...

Edit** I just realised since I wrote this, I bought a Soprano Sax, added it to this track and even released it on one albums..
Edit** LOL I uploaded sax version here on the AMP http://forum.bandamp.com/Audio_Review/7293.html
