Gorgeous
Wow. This a serious, mature, and truly stunning composition/performance. I'm blown away by your talent. I love your melodic ideas, and the right/left channel dialogue structure totally works. I gotta check out Logic because the orchestral and found sound parts are sublime. Have you ever composed for film? This would seem gift-wrapped for the right project. You need an agent, because this could get you work in Hollywood. I'm serious. FOUR STARS!!

Yes
I have, but more in the vein of documentaries. I have had my music in independent films though.

Thanks so much for such a nice post john ! I have also use another software called Miroslav Philharmonic. Voices Jam Pack. Logic 8, is an incredible piece of software ! I wish I could install East West Sliver and Xp- the extension pack to go with East West Silver. But it is really full of bugs and you have to jump through all these hoops to install. I had it installed in GB but I think I have to completely uninstall everything and re install. Get all the updates, but the twist is that there is some very intricate formalities even after those procedures.

Thanks again for the great comment John !

Another stunner, Bill
Usually we think of the mothers who lost their children but fathers grieve too. For a change, you have given us a not-particularly-beautiful piece of music although it is, in fact, beautiful in its conception and its execution.

Great work.
You've struck a well of deep sorrow with this one Bill. Tinged with middle east echoes, it's a moving tribute to all those who have lost so much. Wonderful work wonderfully well played.

infused
a deep feel to the song and playing. the hint of middle eastern styling really brings it on home.

i also like the added touches of the backing tracks. minimal and placed just right

An artist
You are not only a GREAT player, you are an incredibly imaginative one as well. And inventive, creative, dramatic, etc. A true artist, and it is always a real pleasure to hear your music. Great drama here. This could be used in a movie, but it conjures up its own powerful imagery so it doesn't need to be in a movie to be very powerful.

Great stuff here. Very intense.

Bill...
You do all you put your hand to, most excellently, from tiling, to playing guitar, to conveying the emotion, to background effects, to creating stories with notes. Wow...

Powerful
And full of emotion ..you played this excellently ! I love your mild touch on the strings and the pauses were perfect :) .....Nice man just a real beautiful tribute to those who have suffered loss for this ignorant aggression and meaningless moment in time ......

Production notes
I noticed two times that the song clipped out on at 2:53 and the other was earlier in the piece ...like the whole song drops in and out for a few moments .....everything else sounded great on my KRK 8's

heartfelt
Beautiful playing Bill. Your heartfelt lament is fantastic. The sound effects also fits very well. The wind fx you have around 04:10 was very cool. Made me look up from the screen:)

Masterful
goodness Bill... you've painted the starkest mideastern landscape here... you take this so much further than "just some guy playing his guitar" you've charted a journey for your listener.... I will put on sun screen before I hear this again... but seriously... this is such a masterful comprehensive work... with wood and steel you've said it all..

deep bow my friend
