a waltz I like!
Floating prettily along, but without the overblown feeling I get from so
many waltzes...

Sounds heavenly.

Lovely
Lovely artwork - really fits the feel of the piece.
It is gorgeous.
So sweet and soothing, it really moved me. Excellent fingerwork and nice
string accompaniment, although I would've liked to hear some deep long
string lines to underline the guitar. Those short lines kind of left me
wanting more... which is not all bad.
I really liked the reverb of the guitar, as well.
A most excellent post, which proves yet again that you truly deserve the
title MJ-er of the week!
Thank you very much for sharing!
Bravo!

Lovely
Thanks Einarus

Of course I mentioned it before but I really enjoy your composing as well.

It is funny about reverb so like it,some don't but I wanted to get a new age
feeling and a added a slight chorus. I took out some of it though.

Thanks again

heavenly indeed
The little added accents of the strings are particularly well done. Personally I don't care for this much reverb, but that's just my personal taste. I think it would feel a bit more intimate with less reverb, and a piece that's this delicate might benefit from a less roomy sound. I would have liked it to go on a bit longer, but I really enjoyed this.

Fantastic again!
This one makes me think of Antony De Gennaro and his guitar style. I
very much enjoy his music so that's a good thing. I loved the way the
strings seem to chime in.

Terrific melody and superb picking, once again. Great sound, too. Way to make your guitar sing, Bill.

You continue to grow
More beautiful, evocative excellence from The Tiler.

Tasty, sparse orchestration. I can never muster that much self-control.
The "less is more" theory is easily believed, but not easily pulled off. You
did it here.

Thank you for your continued gifts to this site.

fun to hear!

Classy
Classy track, understated, very good New Age. Love the little synth string
stabs in the background, like a glass harmonica, love them. The reverb
effect, like being inside a bathroom, is both interestingly crystalline and a
bit claustrophobic in my ears. The piece, which is warm rich writing, just
kind of ends without a fitting ending; maybe could use a melodic finish?
Very floating and dreamy and enjoyable, tho.

Wide Open Sound
Takes me to some of the vast vistas of the Rockies, high pass, beautiful
meadow and a nice waterfall at the end of the valley.

Dream waltz
Your guitar is always so.
The scene floats when eyes are shut.
The guitar codes takes me to the dream world.

Bright strings
I wonder how often you change the strings on your guitar. They allways seem so bright and fresh:) Nice fingerpicking! I kind of wait for a hook-line or something to make a melody in there - but I can of course make my own:)

Bright strings
Good point Thoddi

It is tough with new age, because I want to keep the flavor of the new age sound
by making the fingerpicking in the for-front but then If I do a single string solo I
may loose a bit of the texture of the acoustical guitar. That is one reason I made
the orchestration limited but I may do another version and see what people
think.
Thanks

Business as usual
...And of course, this is another example of the finger pick'n and 'mind'
agility. This one is more of a fav for me, because it has a sweetness
that I wasn't available to receive in some of your previous works. Also, I
like the added dimension that the strings cater to.

Congrats! TT, on another fine display of your musical abilities.

You might consider this as an option for a day job however, I do
understand that you are just as talented w/ tile work.

Also congratulations on recieving the MJ'r of the week! It seems that it
was certainly due...

Lovely
Great tune, man. Your playing is always so clean and right on. Love it. I'm finding myself agreeing with the long string party, but I think a variety would also be grand. Also, the reverb doesn't kill the piece for me, but I think I'd like to hear it a little drier, get that guitar a little more in front of the effect. I mean, if you're gonna go back and mess with the piece anyway. Always a pleasure to listen.

Waltzes rule!
Nice one Bill - I'd probably have liked to hear it with drier reverb too,
but a lovely piece nonetheless. You seem to play so fluidly to my ears,
and so accurately as well - the string addition was just right!
Thanks Bill - hi to Betsy!

Not just Jim
I'm with Bouchard and Neil on the reverb thing, but it really is a minor
point.

That aside, this is one of the most incredible melodies I've ever heard,
not just on MacJams but anywhere, and no amount of reverb can
change that.

Thanks snow for the comment on the melody thing.
I know in new age melody can take on a different meaning than other styles.
I am posting a solo version of this tune shortly hopefully you'll see a change in
the reverb

Thanks

we popped over, me and the

Hey Bill,

this was a nice journey, really enjoyed the playing and feel of
this song. Less reverb and it would be perfect.
Very excellent song from an excellent player.

Cheers

Another one I like...
...I used to have a Bennett Hammond album that was drenched in reverb
and chorus and delay... and after I got used to it, I really loved it...

I LIKE the reverb here... at spots it almost becomes another instrument...
and it doesn't sound all cold and boingy or clinical... it sounds warm and
reverberant, like a guy playing a great guitar in a beautifully tiled
bathroom...

The playing is lovely and the tune is real nice...
