Nice arrangment
Sweet the way that you started out with the dissonance, harmonics and
strings playing off of each other. Good thumb work on that bass run
also. I think you did a really good job of integrating the midi strings
throughout the piece. Had the feel of a real concert hall to me!

Rack 'em up!
You been rackin' up songs at MacJams for quite a while, Bill. Another
marvelous production full of grace and sensitivity. Such fingerpicking,
Did I say I was jealous? I know -- practice, practice, practice.

Ah, I detected some flat notes in the middle of the song. That's my crit
for the day. Other than that, sensational! Nice ebb and flow. Hopefully,
all your efforts will put some payola in your side pocket.

I really do think I have the most pieces of music online with the least paid ratio.
I guess I am like the guy they talk about that keeps bangin his head against the
wall and refuses so stop. It feels so good when I when I quit the pounding:)

hahahah...online to income ratio is pretty damn low around here too, Bill.

but the way I look at it,...making music is better than watching the
simpsons...and they will have a lovely soundtrack fpr my wake.

more stellar playing from you , bill!...and the recording is super...

if we are desitined to bang our heads tilk we croak, oh well ...so be it i guess.

but play we must! ( i think the big guy likes it!)

That Guitar/String combo is nice.
This reminds me of Classical Gas - it's the instrumental combination, I'm
sure. I like the way you integrated the arpeggiated line into the melody.
That's one unique thing about the guitar that I miss when writing for band
instruments, and you show it off to good advantage, here.
I'd echo schletty about some of the bass notes in the middle being a bit
flat.
Nice smooth piece. Really pleasant listening.

You are quite a musician thetiler! I can really appreciate what it takes to

music. Great track! Peace!

Just another excellent piece
Man, you do churn them out - And how they can all be so consistently solid w/ 'what is excellence, it just continues to blow me away, Bill - What would you do if someone tied your hands for a day... - Really, what was your outlet before you 'picked up' the guitar

I'm never dissappointed w/ a visit to your song page - Thank you! for that - Dion

I don't drink or smoke, so I guess I am addicted to the guitar. Now I know what
A.A. means. My search for "Acoustical Audiences" :)

Thanks C!

There's more than a hint of 'spaghetti western' about this...

You guitar playing is as fine as ever and you've created another
excellent piece of music. What I particularly like about this is how the
guitar is integrated with the other instruments resulting in music which
is definitely greater than the sum of its parts.

You've made very dramatic use of string section - the best I've heard in
any of your tracks. The spiccato strings at the end are wonderful - and
along with those guitar harmonics the effect is very eerie.

Great Playing
I don't drink or smoke either and I can't play like that. Must be the
practice. Great feel.

Lots of Drama...
in this piece, Bill.

Interesting blend of techniques augmenting the Spanish influence.

How long have you been playing this style of guitar? Did you start off
playing this style, or is it something you *discovered* later on and
decided to pursue?

Lots of Drama...
As for as this style, I based it on a kind of dissonant chordal feel and just going
with what styles work. At least I try to do that. Like a puzzle, things fit others
don't, I don't really try to fit in any one style. Just what works that i can
remember I've played or practiced etc.

Nice additions on the strings
The guitar is just excellent and with the addition of the strings it's a
welcome compliment. Playing one with the other.

Beautiful
The strings really work well, they add to the drama without sounding at all maudlin or overwrought. Very fine stuff here!

Marvellous...
guitar picking as per usual. I love the ambience of this piece. The use of
strings to augment the tension was/is a fine idea and works well. Love it!

Be well!

As usual, amazing...
Bill, why don't you get a night job, playing your gorgeous tunest a local
restaurant, or club, so some record producer will hear you and sign
you up? Seriously, you are a gem to be discovered! I'm constantly
amazed at the ease in which you write and play these compositions.
Truly beautiful...

Thanks Roxy, but I got tired of coffee houses and clubs long ago. Either too
much drinkin when the costomers don't know what their saying. Or they are
talking and not listen.

Maybe there will be a happy medium.

Thanks so much for posting!
