oh cool!
OK, so this one is going to be on the CD I order from you? Excellent! So, despite my chat-critique that the synth at the end possibly needed a little more reverb-space or softening, this is another great everlasting-head-bobber from you. Very cool piece here, and I hope that me offering critiques AFTER You have mastered the CD doesn't put you between a "rock and a hard place" :) Sounds good to me!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Does have a Cars feel to it. A Carvin player. Nice!! I think this tune would sound great with some vocals. Maybe female? Keep it fun.

I love
the description - Cars crash into Classical - excellent. I do see a Cars influence, especially when the keyboards kick in. Nice guitar sound, and playing, and the bass (is it bass or keys?) and drums really drive the track along. This has a cinematic, life-affirming end of the movie kind of feel to it. I also could not stop moving my head the whole way through. Very cool. Nicely done. Peace.

Where are the words? It's totally open for lyrics. Nevertheless, good job.

Hope something more comes from this.

Cars-sounding...
I tip my hat as best as I can with this song to Greg Hawkes as he is, by far, my all time favorite keyboardist and talk about a prolific well-rounded musician...at this present time, he makes a ukulele sing just like he did his, ahem, Car keys :)

The Cars put out some really Really REALLY good power pop songs in their day, as well as their Elektra contemporaries Shoes from Zion, Illinois.

Thanks Vic!

and oh by the way...
I am living proof anyone can play the piano if they set their mind to it...I have NEVER had a piano lesson in my life, it's just a matter of hand-eye-brain coordination...I make no bones about it, I am not a good piano player and I cannot sing worth a poo!!

Rock In a Hard Place
as a matter of fact, a fellow MacJammer currently has a rough draft of lyrics I wrote for it for review and edit...

Hopefully soon, we'll hear this with vocals

When I was 12 years old, I had a nutty notion that I wanted to play an instrument. At first, I wanted to play the drums. That went over like a lead balloon, so I told my parents I wanted to take up the guitar. Thinking this was just a passing fad, mo... [see more]
