on: October 08, 2018, 20:23:51
Pardon the title but let me know what you guys think! I'm going to make an acoustic album along these lines called "Lows"

I think the song is absolutely infectious. The mantra-like rhythm and the paucity of actual vocals somehow work beautifully together. I like that guitar that sneaks in at around 1:30 and I like how you go a little Bo Diddly with the rhythm toward the end.

I think you should consider changing the name of the song to "Everything" and then throw that other word in there like you do at the top as a statement after you suck the listener in.

I think you have a reason for the first 10 or so seconds of the song.
I don't understand that reason. But hey, I'm not the yardstick....
But after that, I like the song very much.
I don't mean it as an insult or anything, but your right hand does miracles.

Would you mind posting the lyrics. There are many Non-native english around and I'm one of them.
And I would like you to give us more time to enjoy it.
That is a civilized way to say that it's far too short. Blunt? i bet. But straight from the heart.
My three cents.
Kind regards, Gus

This was actually very insightful, thank you. I think I will actually change the title with that new perspective in mind

Hey Gus! thanks for the feedback. the first 10 seconds of the song was a recording of my frustrated self wailing on my guitar strings, and i felt that it sort of encapsulated my feelings at the time. i posted the lyrics for you :) thanks again!

Yes, thank you. It's not that it's a difficult text, but it helps if i can read along.
A very very fine song, hammered along by the drive of your right hand.
I could get used (in a positive way I mean)  to more music like this.
Kind regards, Gus
