Inna's Theme & Waltz by dglockwood

DG, this is so beautiful!
Wow! I need to know how you recorded this and what the use.
Because the arrangement is beautiful.
Was this digitally performed? If it were then what keyboard and what set up.? Just very curious!
This is very relaxing and very enjoyable and you should be proud. Have a happy new year.

Buggy Ride by dglockwood

Very good DG;
-I enjoyed the riding in a buggy through the park and that's exactly what it felt like.
-Good fluidity throughout the song and quite enjoyable and I must say very humorous with the types of instruments that created such humor.
-May you have a very Merry Christmas and a glorious and joyous new year.

Oboes can add a new dimension to a score.
Good luck in your endeavors.

The Road From Nowhere by dglockwood

Hi again DG;
-very soothing and innocently resounding. I found myself drifting to the countryside.
-The only comment I would have is maybe a incorporating a tuba base or an Oboe in the mix somewhere and to add depth.
Because I felt the bass was lacking in places. Not that it really needed a bass instrument but more of a instrument that brought depth to the piece.
-Lovely piece I really enjoyed.

Back and Forth by dglockwood

DG; I really like the music and I could see it used in a traveling sequence. It's clean and very well arranged get after while it does become a little bit monotonous without a type of interesting change or one that is provocative. What I simply mean is something that would give it a hook that I can remember it by.
Good luck in your future creativity and may you have a happy Christmas .
Alex.

Thank you for the review. It was kind as it was generous. The reality I deal w is the cocept of making people happy. To do that production is part of that equatiov. A world class engineer IM Not. So any constructive. Ritisism toward that end I have and do listen to. Take care. I

Dance Major by bryan taylor

This is a really cool instrumental, and I really enjoyed listening to it. Your guitar-work rocks, and it made me listen it to more than once to catch everything that you are doing. The mixing and balancing is done very well too. Excellent!


Jimi Seven
Thank you very much. Was a fun thing to do. I think it finished 2nd or 3rd in the contest out of hundreds of entries so I felt pretty good about it.

Radio Gods by Jimi Seven

Jimi, this was really funny, and I thought the music was very fitting for all of the sound clips that ran throughout it. You have a great ear for balance in your mixing and that really made the whole thing work very well. Thank you for posting this!


Jimi Seven
I thought it was likely the case and in no way was it meant as a criticism as you create very nice, intricate musical themes in a way that I envy.
I always look forward to hearing your compositions and often go back and listen to them again and again.
Thank you!

Lost and Found by dglockwood

This was an interesting piece in that it slowly but steadily pulls the listener along for a walk in the woods right before dark. The low end of the orchestra was appropriate.

This made me feel a little lost as I could find no continuous theme throughout. But then right as it comes almost to a stop, it slowly begins rising musically with more mid-range instruments and notes.

The picture seemed to fit the music and mood.

You played and mixed it very well. I would have liked to have heard a little stronger melody but still it is soothing and peaceful. This, like all of your pieces, reflects your talent to compose.




Jimi Seven
You are welcome! I certainly would love to hear it after those minor adjustments. But I definitely like your song. You are quite talented. No way I could write anything with the complexity you do.

Hymn to the Light by dglockwood

This had some elements that reminded me of Bach, from Brandenburg Concerto in Bm, if I recall correctly. I liked the orchestration, the strings mostly.

I thought the percussion that came and went was a little distracting (for me). And the bass or lower end, maybe it was the instrument selection, was a little strong.

I think if the tempo was slightly increased, the bass and percussion reduced, and the stringed instruments of a higher end, maybe using more violins, I would love it.

I am not suggesting a change to the melodic theme at all. I would have simply liked to have heard a lighter overall feel to this as I really liked the melody.

Keep in mind, this is simply my opinion. Your playing and composition are very well done.

Unlike many reviews I read on this site where reviewers give everything a 5 and don't really critique, I want to offer something of value if I can. I certainly expect the same, even if it results in a lower "score."

But truly nice work!


Jimi Seven
Thank you very much for the awesome review. Because I sustained nerve damage to my hands and fingers this took several takes to get right. And that was after taking some meds to reduce the pain and increase mobility in the joints of my fingers. Unfortunately I cannot take the medicine very often as it can cause damage to my liver and kidneys while thinning my blood too much.
I had an operation three years ago and it helped some but I recently went to see another hand doctor who tells me another surgery may help repair some more of the damage and help return my playing to the "predamaged level."
My wife is not a fan of hard rock and so I don't play this genre of music very often any more. But once and a while I get the urge!
Thanks again for listening and for the generous score!

At War With The World by Jimi Seven

I really enjoyed this. It reminds me of some classic Queensryche. I admire your guitar work, and the general feel of the tune.
