You're a genius as per usual , what a lovely song, love the open hat and the whole sweeping highland / celtic feel to it.
You're one of those people who can keep your crowds attention, as continuous as the beat is, you've got me glued to the song all the way through.

Though I can just listen thru' the right headphone ( sound system problems), this, dude, blew my mind!
I mean, you just just one progression during the whole song, but you make a lot of variations making it so interesting.
I love the way you mixed all those different styles to build this up.
Completely amazing. And, man, that violin rocks!
I wish i had 1% of the talent you have.

Are you planning to do anything with your music as far as going pro is concerned? I believe you should do sth to promote it on a much bigger scale that just bandamp which, let's face the truth, is a small and "closed" community. As for the tune, it reminds me a little of Sooglenifty (Scottish band). And I love their music.
This one is a very catchy melodic folk type instrumental and I believe it would sell good if you brought it out.
I especialy love the whistle!!!
Thanks for sharing - it's great.

BTW, what bass guitar r u using?

Now listening with my sound working properly...
Taka, as soon as I get enough money, I'll but some tickets to get where you live. Then you tell me what to do and I'll work with you.
I'd love to make music with you.
You're a genius, dude! You'll go really far!

PS: I really don't know WTF I'm doing playing games... should be making music as beautiful as this.

I agree, the melody and arrangement in this song is beautiful. The production is also very nice and clear although it does seem a tiny bit mechanical in places - although I think the percussion is the cause of that. Overall I think the violin parts are the real genius in this piece - although it is all great.

Well done... and get out there!

More ego boosting I'm afraid :)
I have to say I am once again amazed at your music, this is almost as good as 'The Printer' and that makes me cry sometimes. I would love to hear some vocals to this, it would make it perfect I think.

I really do hope you do do something bigger with your talents, a lot of people are missing something if you don't.

P.S. Rated, of course

It's hard to write any additional things that have already been noted apart from DITTO.

So enjoyable to listen to, I want to keep listening to it over and over, there is so much to hear.

I hope you keep on writing stuff like this.

Many Thanks
Holy cow.. thanks guys.

As far as promoting myself... na, I'm not doing anything really. I guess I'm just not sure where to start. It would be cool if an opportunity just presented itself.. but in all reality, that's most definitely not going to happen.

But that being said, this site in itself (specifically all of you guys) really makes me happy. As long as someone's listening and getting something out of my music, I won't complain.

Best regards,
