That was quite a production! Sounds like you did a massive amount of work on the sax alone. I absolutely loved the drums (what did you use for these) Sounded like a live drummer from someone like Al Dimeola or Jean-Luc Ponty .  Very impressed.     mark

I thought the sax was too good to be true...  I really couldn't understand how someone could achieve that using midi. I was just hoping it was possible. I have a sax but it tickles too much to learn it ..   Great job    mark

So great ! Wow, I appreciate how your sax is your voice through this piece, musically interesting with the chord changes. Though, from beginning to end, the snare on 2+4 does not change at all . . . sure, there are fills in the drums, but always that same snare on 2+4 . . . there is an alternate section of interest, but still the same snare volume and exact tone. The recording is all top notch and balanced, but I can't get away from that drum machine thing as I listen. Sorry, don't mean to be a downer, because I SO appreciate what you've done here . . . maybe I just want more drum drama . . . don't mind me, I liked it a lot, but the drums seem important to me this piece somehow  . . .

Thanks, I'll check that snare out. It's basically doing what I want which is driving 2 & 4 home. Maybe it's too hot in the mix or I'll tweak the performance to change it up. At some point I'd like to replace the canned drums altogether with a live player. I'll give it another go over. Appreciate the critique & feedback.

Here's an alt version with some drum & bass edits:

I'm glad that you put two versions up because it was pure joy to hear them both.  I love the title, as it does have an Indian flavor that I learned to love from the Beatles.  Five stars with two thumbs up!

That's a big YES ! from me . . . the drum change ups really make a difference. Excellent composition and mixing,  and it's very catchy, it really has it all.

I really liked the drum track on this one - they sounded really good - what did you use here? 

This is a bit different from the music I've heard from you recently - this one is a bit more of an instrumental rock song - perhaps progressive rock.

There was a lot going on in the mix, but you made it work - well done.
