The Mad Poet

This song is not in a battle

Another Sam the Horse / WTFolk style recording. The mood changes about halfway through.

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

Great recording, fabulous playing.
All sounding good to me.

I guess my only criticism would be that it fades out!
Well done Tak

This is a fantastic song. Great skills on the violin like your skills in composition and recording
A simple backing track and a wonderful melody and gorgeous soli. Bit long though
Now you are here on BandAmp. There is a JBP video out there where you added your influences ready for the music factory
What are your next plans? Conquer the world? You shoud have a go!

Lovely melodies, great arrangement, love your violin work, hmm wonder what it would sound like if you harmonised it with the classical guitar lead?

I could see the Bee Gees singing to this.

I don't know what to do other than echo what's already been mentioned. This is just great. Loved the change and the bassline around 2:45, a part of me wanted more strings doing the bass there, but it's a really nice contrast with the funk bass and fiddle. I agree with Jiminuk about the ending though, it seems like a wasted opportunity to fade out after all that. Great work.

I still wonder why you are not making tours, and sounding in radios, cause you deserve it!
Man, this is simply great. I love the celtic-country violin and that banjo sounds amazing.
And, of course, you composing skills just kills! I wish I had half the talent you have.
You will go far, real far, so I wish you the best of lucks, though you don't need it.

Beautiful piece .... I love the violin but I feel the banjo part at 2:00 could not have been there, the change at 4:00 is as mellow a change but the bass has the right sound for the song.
I love what you play on the banjo I'm just comparing it to the rest of the piece.
Yea! Funky Afro Celtic Folk !!!

Come on!!! What the hell are you still doing on bandamp?? I am sure there are hundreds of publishers who would kill to bring your music out! Bandamp is only a community, and I believe you should be out there making serious career and lots of money. Any plans for that?

I love the tune. All of them.

I believe that is a Mandolin, not a Banjo...  and for that I think it fits well...  It goes well with the fiddle...

     Overall the concept is really cool.. and gives it an edge I think that makes it even more interesting...

             Just my opinion....  But, at the same time, I have to agree with JBP, GO MAKE MONEY!! GEEEZ DUDE!  This is incredible.... Guys like Marino and Toasted Goat are too old to make money now, noone wantsto see these guys on stage, their ugly too..  Me, I'm not only old and ugly, I can't play fer shit.. but you dude!! YOUR AWESOME!!  And JBP, heed your own advice young sir...

Man, your work is freaking amazing. You should be out there, getting your self a record label.
I want to go into target, or anywhere, go look at the CDs and see your first CD there.
