MODO sounds really good here. Not getting the low mid congestion that listening here in the Caravan so often yields. 
The crit here; I bailed at 3:08 when the main riff came back in. Sorry, but the tune’s a bit too long. 
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed the tune, but I’d trim the fat…


t

also there’s about 5-6 seconds of silence on the front end. I’d tidy that up.

Hi Tom,

Thanks a lot for listening - and for your comments.

I'm not getting any silence at the beginning here - it starts right in at 0:00 😕

I'm probably guilty of going on too long - more often than not 😉

hi John, nice tune, playing, riffs, production, mix....agree with Tom that it does need some editing....i'm in the process of writing something new and have to adjust my thinking from creating something i think is worth pursuing to listening to the whole piece and then deciding what sounded good before is not fitting into where the song is at now....basically totally opposite ways of thinking that really tires me out 🎵🎸🥁🔊

Nice chord progression and nice mix too - good work.  I could have stood for the guitars at the beginning to be more heavy and in your face, but you were probably going for more laid back.  Either way sounds good.

Thanks a lot for listening Steve!

Yeah - I was going for a more laid back (funky?) feel for the guitars.

I'm certainly not averse to "in your face" though... ;)

Hi Paul - thanks a lot for listening and for your comments. There is definitely a theme here - but I have to say, it's only on this forum... ;)

As a nut for instrumentals -especially if they feature guitars-- I really liked this number.  I was captured by the intro guitar riff that came in on-and -off through out.  The contrasting sounds of the guitars works well.  As someone who has been listening to a lot of South American Latino influenced afrobeat music the length of the song did not bother me.  Not after listening to 15 - 20 minute afrobeat songs.

Nice one.

I like you already!! ;)

Seriously - thanks a lot for listening and for your comments. I know I do get carried away sometimes, but I didn't think this one was too "overdone" - oh well.

The good thing is - I don't have to answer to anyone - so that's the length that it is ;)
