I liked it, but didn't want to jump in - give it a few days and the guys who know what they're talking about will come 'round. So, I'm talking about musical experience and theory there, which I am lacking. It is easy on the ears and artful and pleasant but I would like to hear a little more ascending in solos and less descending. That's simple me, my 2 cents.

I know that somehow the majors and minors & other names can direct you to ascend or descend, but is it mandatory? If that's the case, I'm a poor example and would break the rules anyways, playing both up and down, to balance things out.

It sounds like to songs to me: the solo around the bridge and the rest. I don't know the original song. Is there lyrics? Perhaps you could sing!

And just a comment. The drum track is a little bit louder for the mix to me.

Keep sharing!

Thanks guys!

I believe the song did have lyrics at one point, but it is most famous as an instrumental.

Singing is definitely not my forte, but I'm working on a couple of songs at the moment and will have a go at singing the lyrics myself. When I post them I will remind you that I am not a singer by any means!

This is a good, constructive forum to post at. I really enjoy listening to people's music - covering a variety of styles.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to my music.

Nice work Mr Bloke!

I liked the variety of guitar tones you were using within the song. The solo had a really cool use of reverb. I must admit, I havent heard the original but I liked what I heard here.

Good on you
