  1. Wookiee, Really cool track, you have a way of creating some very interesting soundscapes. 2:18 forward really took off into the stratosphere. The drums sound great, will have to check out the SD3 Orchestral SDX. Regards
  2. Steve, Great job on this track. You captured the overall Motown vibe of the era and the performances and vocals are really good. Huge thumbs up. Regards

    Blind Boy Blues

    Rik, Sorry to hear about your continuing health issues. Hopefully your surgery will prevent any additional eye problems. Great track, you certainly cheered up your listeners with your playing. Fantastic phrasing as always. Regards
  4. Kevin, Your mix is pretty good. I like the song , playing, production, etc... I think if you push the HiHats up bit and bring out the kick a bit more (more punch) you will have a winner. The guitars, vocals, stereo field, etc.. all sound good. Reminds me of some early Tom Petty. Regards
  5. Tim, Very cool song, you guys are great players and it looks like you have a lot of fun playing live. I like this more traditional metal style and your mix is terrific. Regards

    End Game

    Wow, you have some great tracks in your archives. Really like this performance. Top notch work. Regards
  7. Daryl, As always, fantastic original song and production. This song's use of lyrical dissonance does an exceptional job of contrasting the subtle and unpredictable path of the person with the writer's perspective of who the person "was". Really clever production. Regards
  8. Sounds great, vocals are fantastic. +1 on the Hall and Oates comparison, definitely has that feel. Really well done. Regards

    Si tu savais

    Rik, Thanks for the info, greatly appreciated. I ordered a Zoom so if my Ovation doesn't work out will just have to get a new acoustic that will work:) Regards

    Si tu savais

    Rik, I have an old Ovation Legend Acoustic from around 1981 with an awful piezo pickup. It records terribly unless using a condenser mic. I wonder if it would sound good with the Zoom? Is your Ovation a similar vintage and how would you rate the sound from it going DI with the Zoom? Regards
  11. Great track, glad you pulled this one out of the vault.

    Si tu savais

    Rik, The tone is amazing, had to have a look at the Zoom AC-2 after hearing this, looks pretty cool. I always dread acoustic guitar recording because it is a hassle with mics and I am getting old and lazy:) The Zoom seems pretty versatile,convenient and most importantly, realistic. Your improv is really good. I like how you started with the original them of Si tu savais and then did your own thing. Really fantastic sound and playing.... you have a real talent. Thanks for sharing. Regards
  13. Tom, Fantastic song and production, very creative. The only "critique" I can find (since you are looking for them) is that the horns seem pretty stiff and straight. I think they need to swing a bit more to get with the rest of the track, particularly in the beginning. I might also add a little muted trumpet riff in the very beginning just before the bass comes in to set the tone for what's coming. I was initially thinking, "this really needs some horns," and of course they came just a bit later. Couple places the drums could also swing a bit more... That said, had a few listens through and found it a very excellent listen. Love the latin vibe that comes in after the piano break. The piano is so good....really enjoy your playing. Regards

    Valse a deux,

    Rik, You did a nice job with the Django style vibe over the backing track. Never get tired of hearing your playing and original songs. Fantastic work. Regards
  15. RSCain, You did a really good job on this track and that guitar does sound pretty awesome. You also put some Donald Fagan style in your vocal delivery which makes it even more believable. It is a taste thing, but I would pull the vocal reverb back just a hair, when people mix their own vocals they tend to push them back or stick a lot of reverb or delay on it. Your voice sounds really good so no reason to hide it:) Regards
