ghengus23: great down dirty country rock feelin' from the start. Reminds me of social distortion. Not sure if...

i was blown away

great job, i'd say you handled that well the change ups were drastic yet very controlled, very nice

the guitar solo'd does however seem to be a little loud compared to the intro, perhaps enlighten the intro with a tad bit of volume

Glorious poppish rock noise...I won't try to catogorize it, but I like it! I, too liked the heavy guitar part best. I do like the kinds of changes you used in your arrangement, but maybe you were just a tad too adventurous...While I liked the movements through the song, I'm not sure I'm supposed to. You managed it all very nicely, also! This was a very enjoyable listen and I want to down-load it.Thanks!

I thought this improved by leaps and bounds once the heavier guitars kicked in. The changes in the earlier part of the song would take a little getting used to, in my opinion. Personally I'd throw some drums and fills in to link them together a little more - but that's just me.

yeah, i actually thought the heavy guitars were nicely done, but after all the other parts of the song, just seemed like a whole new song.

I like this but the verses could stand to be more dynamic, I think. maybe something less linear on top to offset the vocal phrasing. I like all the changes and the general flow of the song. I don't mind the heavy geetars.

haha;) what she meant was that she thought the song had a sweetness to it, and the guitars were like bashing up that sweetness, for her. i'll think on this, if i have a suggestion i think is worth typing out, i'll do it.

thanks aaron. tell your wife I plan to be especially nice to the elderly today. yes, i'll agree that the guitar is overdone in parts and the genre crisis is somewhat distracting. we had almost decided to let this one fall through the cracks but wanted to see what you guyses thought. we're sincerely open to suggestions on this one.

well done i liked the hip hoppy part, but it seemed sort of tossed in, without relevance... likewise, the end went kind of hard with the guitars, that was more relevant, but there was a lot of different genres in one song... not that there are rules, but i think if you picked the best and developed it, the song would be better overall.... i liked the vocals, great voice, and the playing. i played it for my wife, she basically agreed with me, she thought it was a sweet song, she really liked the lyrics (i didn't catch them) but thought that the heavy guitars at the end were too much, she said it was like 'beating up an old lady'. nice work overall.

I like the breakdown to hip-hoppery. Can't say I care much for the rest though.

seems a little put together, no real transitions, the parts are greater than the whole
