Big Difference
Bill, I noticed a huge improvement from the first note. The
guitar now takes center stage, as it should. The also
seems to be less ambient hiss at the start. This is
wonderful and an incredibly impressive work!

Thanks Adam

This is just my first time I've done a large piece like this, it has been a lot of
fun. Thanks so much for coming back and posting.

2nd Better I Like
Wow that was fun!! I just bought some Senheiser 280
headphones and this sounded magnificent. A good
mellow outer before bed. I really enjoyed the spanish
sounding runs in the third suite and the ending melody to
that suite.

2nd Better I Like
Thanks Bronco

Thanks for the comment about that run. I think I was influenced with
Rodrigo's composing because I used to play one of his concertos.

Each time I listen to this
I like it more and more. Especially this version, which is
grounded in the strength and beauty of your Takamine. I
still believe the 1st section is the most moving, and
memorable.

But this suite, in its entirety, is really something an old
tiler like you should be very proud of.

Love the Wes Montgomery section in 2nd movement. And
the harp/guitar 'duet' in part three.

I have a specific technical question, but I'll email you.
Great job!

I like it better...

but I like the first one a whole lot. So, they both win.
Centering the guitar is a good move. It is the solo
instrument and I prefer, in most cases, to center the
soloist, whether vocal or instrumet.

Bravo, tileman. Wouldn't be nice to get off the knees and
do "this" for a living. Ah, but we are thankful nonetheless.

To; Jack

My problem was just not knowing GB enough, becoming more familiar with
GB helped my understand centering sound better.
Thanks to the Ipod, I can keep music with me when I am on my knees if need
be. If I can't be composing or playing I can be listening.


Thanks for coming back and posting.

Powerful presence
Fantastic. Such pure and resonant guitar work. I long
for the day when I can achieve even half of the lyricism
and brilliance you bring to the stage. After struggling all
week with guitar chords and "the sound"...and getting to
the point of almost saying "what's the use"...you refresh
my sagging spirit. Wonderful!

The first movement hangs together quite well. I like it the
best of the three. Guitar and orchestral sounds are well
integrated.

In the second movement, the flutes, horns and percussion
are a little timid. When the the guitar takes off in volume
and tempo, the synth bed becomes a bit flat by contrast
rather than being three-dimensional like the guitar.

Movement three has some very nice poetic moments. The
last chord is striking.

I think you have three great movements...a nice ebb and
flow. You just need to work some more with the dynamics
or "punch" of the orchestral loops. For example, I need to
hear more bottom, esp. when you are beating the virtual
kettle drum.

I do not own any of the Jam Pack 4 Orchestra Loops. I'd be
interested to know how chord progressions are done.

Your comments are very helpful to me. I will get back to you through email.

In regards to the Jam Pack 4 loops question.

Such emotion...
I hadn't listened to the original, but this is some stunning
guitar playing. The orchestral crescendos are so
complimentary to your emotional performance. The sonic
ebbs and tides are so evocative throughout. Your
dynamics at the end are wonderful.
thetiler said 4428 days ago (March 11th, 2005)
Such emotion...
Thanks Alimar

This is just my first one, I still have a lot to learn. I just downloaded your
great tune. I try to work with the tools that I have. But I am still trying get
more familiar with GB 1 and now 2.

I think working with loops, and midi editing helps me get more inspired with
the guitar in a different direction than just playing thanks to people like you
on this site.

Thanks for coming by

Bill

Bravisimo!
1st Movement - Magnificent. It sounds much better with
guitar centered. Wonderful, emotive piece.

2nd Movement - It starts to build into one thing very
driving but then chages before it feels ready to, in my
opinion. Beautiful but I wish it would carry that theme
and energy further before settling into the peaceful scene
that follows.

3rd Movement - Just lovely. That harp is gorgeous.

A wonderful suite you have done here. Thanks for sharing
it again with the adjustments.

Thanks for the critique.

This is really great to have people come by and give their opinion. It is a great
way to grow and get better.

Thanks so much. I know I have to do the same too.

Thanks again

You've taken your music to another level..and how wonderful it is. This ranks up with the orchestral works of Alimar and Tobin, in my book. :-) Bravo, Tiler!

Great. Ultimate great song. The orcestra sound and the
steel guitar are matching very beautifully.

thanks for sharing.

To: Hawks

Thanks, I am really playing the steel guitar out of that my classical guitar
which I made doesn't really have the sound like my Takamine. Plain and
simple. I have made about four guitars, but they just don't have the high class
classical guitar sound. So I used the steel string. It really was not my
intention to use a steel string for a concerto or suite.

My expensive store bought classical guitar fell off my truck when i was
driving over a bridge. I went back to find it and it was gone. I looked all over,
and over but I just couldn't find it. It fell off my truck on highway 101 when a
large sign that I was carrying blew off the truck, it must of snagged the
guitar and case with it as it was blown by the wind.

There is a waterway in Greenbrae Ca. under the bridge I was traveling, I was
in the slow lane. It was low tide I think at the time. I went back thinking that I
would find it but somebody must of realized they had a great guitar and took
it.

It was a beauty.

Thanks for the post!

Sounds Great.. composition is good, sounds are good.. very nice. You should check out the Garritan Personal orchestra. I got it for $219 US... it kills the jam pack orchestral sounds.

Ambitious and delightful
Huge improvement in giving this a more realistic concerto
feel, in creating a real orchestra pallet. The orchestra is
still very far away from the soloist, tho. Movement 1 has
such a nice Sebelius feel, so personal and gracious, grand
without pomp. Movement 2 is right off the street, so
intimate, avoids cliche; but the interaction between soloist
and orchestra doesn't hold together for me on this one,
especially in the the slow tempo opening. I like the use of
pizz, the interplay. Movement 3 was nice, altho the ending
was suddenly loud (esp. the flute/picc.) Such an ambitious
track. It is wonderful, with marvelous breadth and playing.

To: Tobin

Thanks for the critique on this, It is one of my favorites. It inspires me to do
more. I really didn't realize how much I liked doing a suite until I sat back
took it all in. It's kind of like mind candy, trying to figure out what parts go
were etc.

Being a real experienced person in this type of stuff, I really appreciate the
post.

Really like this great to hear guitar played like that. Would
be interesting if you used smaller string sections or solo
cello for the accompaniment maybe more of a chamber
orchestra sound. But overall the arrangement works really
well Love some of the runs !
