Hello there. I am the David half of BaldricksGherkinator

This an acoustic version is my bands (www.ambientblue.co.uk) new song called Summer Rain.
We havent had a chance to play it live yet so feedback is encouraged. Cheers.

With a faery hand in hand
For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand...

well from listening to it once through i can suggest a few things, you're sample rate needs to be at least double what it is, 44.1 kHz is the standard because anything lower than that can be picked up by anyone (esspecially the higher the pitch) and it reflects badly on your work, raising the bit rate is also advisable.....but not as nessecary.

As for the song its self, I think it needs a little more texture, maybe a bassline, a second guitar maybe even a subtle drum track? failing that try using beefier chords instead of using an open G try using G sus4 (i think, you just hold down the B AND high E in any case.....instead of just high E). Thats just an example btw....i have no idea what was actually played, my ear isn't very good. umm....yeah, more texture, but thats just me, its all subjective anyway wink.gif

Er, yes we are gonna do that. This is a demo of a song just to see what people think, since it has only just been written and we havent had a chance to bung a solo in yet.

I happen to like it. Sure it could do with cleaning up, but as you said, it's only a demo. I think it sounds pretty nifty as it is (besides me not understanding a word James sings - you could probably do with a 'drier' recording environment). Sounds very atmospheric IMO. In fact, I like it so much that I've put it on my main playlist.

There's nothing wrong with acoustic + vocals.

theres a difference between cleaning up and encoding it properly, without encoding properly it's hard to make a good judgement on the song, and i didn't know it was only a demo, acoustic version means theres no amplification, though the vocal are usually put through a mic
