  1. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  7. 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
  9. 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
  11. 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
  12. Very good composition. I would agree you acheived your goal and created a fitting tribute to your father, and, perhaps hit on a theme for that generation in the process. Really enjoyed the song and the orchestration. Regards
  13. Rik, Great to hear some new music from you and this track sounds fantastic. One of the things I really like about your playing is your timing and groove are always impeccable. Many guitarists struggle with timing. You hit all the right notes and keep it flowing smoothly all the time.. Great stuff and look forward to hearing more..... Regards
  14. Johnbee58 - Thanks John, appreciate that. John Maar - Thanks for listening. Bob - Hope your doing well and very glad to hear this song brought back good memories. My parents were NKK fans so was also lucky to hear this stuff growing up too. Have been thinking about picking up a turntable lately as I miss the groove noise (seriously). Glad to see you back at writing and recording, I know you took a break for awhile. Haven't been too active lately due to work but will check out your new stuff. Thanks Wookie, appreciate the mix review. Was worried about a few elements and may take a stab at fixing a few of them when time allows. Hope all is well in your world. Regards
  15. Great listen gents. The song and performances are outstanding and the mix sounds really good. Very cool chord progressions, vocal harmonies and the bridge is a nice twist as well. Very well done. Regards
