    Just wanted to let you know that "Charlie" now does have female vocals and bass. In case you're still interested. Oh, I'll have to listen to more of yours

    Sweet! The Doors. That's awesome! I can kinda hear that now that you mention it. That one was a rollercoaster ride for sure. 😀

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 27

    Thanks for your all-too-kind comment on Vitamin C. I "C" I have a lot to catch up on your output as well. 'Grats on a successful campaign. Though I guess any output is successful, eh?

    Thanks for the kind words on Northern Lights! That was kind of a weird key for me to sing in as it was; I don't know if I could have attempted the octave up!

  • @piney  Feb 23

    Thanks for your comments! Glad to hear that you can relate Beyond the Beast. Anxiety, fear, frustration are all things one could take away from it!

  • @ampersandman  Feb 23

    It's on me to say thank you now.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 22

    Thanks for the listens! Oh my gosh, I'm so far behind in keeping up with comments this year!! haha. I think a part my heart will forever be in the 90's but I'm totally okay with that! 😀 I'll be checking out the rest of your songs as soon as I have time. Work has been really in the way. How dare it!

  • @dunwich  Feb 21

    By all means man, throw some percussion in! Glad you enjoyed it; the tremolo picking is all me trying to rip off McLaughlin.

  • @dunwich  Feb 19

    I've been busy but thanks so much for your comment! The first (but hopefully not the last!) time my composition style has been compared to a Renaissance composer. I like it 😀

  • @piney  Feb 2017

    Thanks so much!

  • @michaelsalamone Feb 2017

    I'm always up for anything you want to try. I like funk jamming too, for the record.

    Thank you for your kind comments on a couple of my songs "Let There Be Light" and "Whisper Gymnopédies". I have to admit, I don't completely understand the technical details of your comments. On Whisper Gymnopédies, I simply picked chords that had common notes to the first melody phrase of Satie's piece. I have tried to learn playing it but my hands simply cannot cooperate with the unexpected timing between right and left hands. However, it is one of my favorite melodies, and I knew that it would fit over some min7 chords - and I picked a few other chords that were common to the melody. If you like the orchestration (if it can be called that) I really tried to copy a chill-out electronic artist that goes by the name Vancouver Sleep Clinic. I linked to a YouTube in the song of his that I really tried to copy the feel of the drum beat and smooth pad. I will be back to listen to your music. Thank you again. I didn't know if I made that piece too 'cheesy', and your words are a c

    Thanks for the comments on my come on sun song, I appreciate it.

  • @kvnwoodruff Feb 2017

    Thanks so much for the comment on "Everything's impossible but nothing is possible". Matt Cameron is a fantastic drummer, so that's quite a compliment. I definitely kept the vocals down a bit on purpose. I tend to keep my vocals down in the mix overall - partly just because I am self-conscious, but also because I like to let every instrument have its space. Thanks again!

  • @piney  Feb 2017

    I use m-audio/m-track interface.

  • @piney  Feb 2017

    Thanks for listening! Yup I use pro tool. Sometimes I'll record in garage and and mix in pt.

  • @lazykat  Feb 2017

    Thanks for leaving a comment 😀 Happy fawming!

  • @zecoop  Feb 2017

    As always... thank you so much for taking the time to listen and for the comment. I'm digging into to some listening this morning, so "James Brown meets the Dixie Dregs" sounds something close to perfect! (whatever it is, lol). Nice tagging!!

  • @jacobeverettwallace  Feb 2017

    Thanks for all the great comments on my songs! Much appreciated! 😀

  • @singbiosis Feb 2017

    Thanks for your reply on my comments. Nice to know my interpretation was somewhat close. 😀 Thanks for taking the time to listen and give real feedback on my tunes, too!

  • @michaelsalamone Feb 2017

    Thanks for all the kindnesses. I'm playing quick and dirty by using a lot of Kontakt kits this year, obviously. And repeating the same few lyric lines over and over. lolz.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 2017

    Thanks for your kind words on "Tattoo." Yeah, it's been a rough one, but things are looking up, so thank you. I can TOTALLY see this busting into a full blown chorus with lots of instrumentation. If I can get the band on board to play this one out, we'll definitely do that. I liked this one so much I'm sure I'll work on it more too...take it past this 1-take rough form.

  • @michaelsalamone Feb 2017

    So, I'm really on a soul music kick this year. You got any Motown in you for a collab? Or you got something kicking around you'd want some of my vibe on? I mean, we've got to do a team up issue. Don't we?

  • @mdavisto Feb 2017

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm using a Rode NT1. @sciren is using a Shure SM58 until she gets her booth sorted out, cos it tolerates untreated spaces pretty well.

  • @kovbleu  Feb 2017

    Glad to hear it! I was hoping you'd be back this year.

  • @kovbleu  Jan 2017

    Hello!!!!!! Ready for another round of this?!! 😀
