When by Guitarmanorama



G'day. This is a great song. Some interesting chord changes going on in there; are you playing in open tuning? Good vocals too and excellent lyrics. Reminds me a little of Crosby Stills & Nash. Good job; well done. Got any more ?

Ordinary Words (Unplugged) by Tommy Short Songs



G'day Tommy; great song reminiscent of the '60's. Excellent vocal work and authentic sounding '60's guitar guitar sounds. Sort of ... The Everly Bros meets Gerry & The Pacemakers. I liked the other song I heard of yours too that you entered into the Beatle contest (should've won IMO) In younger years I also shared the stage with some legends ... The Hollies, Gerry Marsden, Freddy & The Dreamers etc. ah, the good old days LOL

Menzie's by jbowley87



G'day. This is a great song; sung and performed very well and tastefully. What a great voice (makes me green with envy LOL) At first listening I thought the song may have been under produced then after about the third time through I realised that just the acoustic guitar strumming in D is perfect. Great job, mate; well done. Oh, on yer next song can ya post the lyrics?

Twist Clock Song by Philip Shin



Sorry but this sounds like John Lennon off his face with Yoko trying to play a ukulele. I guess the idea is ok but it needs to be recorded properly

Gotta Let You See by Mike Parenti



G'day. This is a great 'Beatle-esque' track, straight off Rubber Soul IMO. You have captured that Beatles sound magnificently; well done. Been a Beatle freak since I was about 9 years old. Good work.

Bobs Beguine. by mp3originals



G'day Bob. this is a lovely Latin number and tastefully played with great rhythms. My only criticism is that I was hoping to hear real guitars as opposed to keyboard ones. If they ARE real then ignore that criticism; they just sound like they might be 'midi' generated to me. Nevertheless, good work and a lovely arrangement; well done.

Tears on Earth, joy in Heaven by John David Coupland
Chapter 2 of the book Instrumentals



G'day. Some nice themes in there. The flute sound is good and I like the change to the major key. I think this would have faired better IMO with more realistic orchestral/choral sounds. Good work, well done.

What Kind Of Love Is This by Kerri Powles



A sad romantic piece for piano & strings ... mmm ... can only be one person I can think of who does this so well. A little lady living somewhere in Brecon, South Wales I suspect. Music matches the text very appropriately and I guess we have all been down that miserable road. Anyhow, nice music, KP and up to your usual standard. Take care ... Ray.

If They Ever Catch Me by RonD



G'day Ron; nice rocking track, maybe in the style of John Mayall? Good steady guitar playing too. Well done.
