Description : This was actually my first attempt at recording an acoustic guitar, almost two years ago. I had just learned at the time that STEREO sounds so much more immersive than MONO. I was too inexperienced enough before to think that panning was all that important :P This was my attempt at getting a wider sound with acoustic guitars. The guitars and vocals are all done by me. I did most of these vocal recordings in one take - hence the wobbliness in some parts :P But feel free to comment and let me know what you think of it.

Thanks, Tumbleweed! I had a lot of fun recording the guitars for this song haha. :P
Modnex 15th Feb 2015 19:40 - 9 years ago
I love this track! Your vocals and that guitar sounds great together. I think your music is very mainstream sounding and I always enjoy it. You should really send your songs to some labels. I know they will sign you in a heartbeat. Take care man and thanks for sharing your amazing talent!
BradoSanz replied 15th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Appreciate the kind words, Modnex!
clindsay 15th Feb 2015 19:27 - 9 years ago
Very Nice - love the guitar work - somewhat reminiscent of 'Mountains of the Moon' from Grateful Dead. Like the vocals but they are a little hot. Good production and structure. well done.

Thanks, clindsay :P

What else is there to say except F**K**G brilliant!! As per always another radio friendly piece of tunage which has been mixed down to perfection. When's the album coming out then?
BradoSanz replied 15th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
I don't know FR :P WHO KNOWS?! Sorry. It's late. I'm partially insane right now haha.

Well hello, superstar to be!

They all said it already - get out there and do your thing (when you are done with what ever it is you are doing right now).
This is top notch in every way already, no matter the technical issues you wrote about.

Great, great vocal!
Great everything.

Cheers/ SJ =)

You must Seriously be Joking :P haha. All bad jokes aside, thanks SJ :)

OMG MAN, keep bringing more music like this.
Leandro7020 13th Feb 2015 17:27 - 9 years ago
Loved the guitar melody,you sing very well!
one day we will do a project together?
BradoSanz replied 15th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
I don't know if that'll be possible for the time being haha. Between school, my own stuff, and several other collabs that are still on hold due to my horribly busy life, I may not be free for another few months :P
mrwolf14 12th Feb 2015 22:46 - 9 years ago
Very well done.
As someone already mentioned, wonderful guitar sound.
The vocal track is clear and "on spot".
Good dynamics.
What can I say? This is a very well made pop song.
Good job!
Ciao, Domenico
joecramer 12th Feb 2015 19:49 - 9 years ago
That sounds all very good to me. Guitars, vocals, mastering ....

Real good production. You done it all the best.
Like Danke sayed - What you are doing here? Go, take youre guitar and this song and earn some money :)

stay tuned
BradoSanz replied 12th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
I don't have time hahaha. School is my main priority right now, this is just a hobby right now :P And the funny thing is I recorded this entire song with a borrowed 100$ condensor mic - the Behringer B1. I'm not trying to make this an advertisement for anyone but if you're reading this and you're looking for a cheap, excellent condensor mic for your studio, I recommend the Behringer B1 highly as a starter mic.

Just so you peeps can see what it looks like.

Loved the guitar work here epic, as a guitar player of 7 years myself, I'm very impressed.
Good work!
Rico L.
BradoSanz replied 12th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks ludwicke! It was a song I wrote while still in high school that I finally got to record :) I started playing guitar about 4 years ago haha. But the stuff I'm playing honestly isn't too difficult, if one knows how to strum and handle a pick. I guess it's simplicity is where the beauty lies haha. Appreciate the kind words!
MTGMusik 12th Feb 2015 03:42 - 9 years ago
Awesome! Sounds well produced but no so much that it removes all rawness from it, which is great! Great guitar tone throughout as well as vocal tone, you transitioned to those high notes flawlessly dude!
To say this is one take, you should be really proud with this! I hope you're signed to someone or at least really popular because you deserve to be!
BradoSanz replied 12th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks MTGMusik! Maybe one day :P
Luizor 12th Feb 2015 03:39 - 9 years ago
wow, i most definetly like your voice, great work man :D
BradoSanz replied 12th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Thank you Luizer :) I was feeling inspired at the time when I made this song, so my vocals were partly fired up by it haha.
JodyJames 12th Feb 2015 03:07 - 9 years ago

mykahc 11th Feb 2015 23:44 - 9 years ago

Danke 11th Feb 2015 18:53 - 9 years ago
Intro is like a grunge rock acoustic performance...stunning...then Mark Tremonti's feeling flashed of course his acoustic things...
Awesome chorus with fat backing hit...

What are you looking for here? :-)

BradoSanz replied 11th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
I'm not really sure, danke :P Thanks for the kind compliments haha.
Spivkurl 11th Feb 2015 16:31 - 9 years ago
Hey, pretty good stuff here! I agree with Livingsoulsdie that this would be great with a band of expressive musicians. Could almost hear this being turned into a trance crossover hit as well. Nicely performed!
BradoSanz replied 11th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks, Spiv! :)
StaticNomad 11th Feb 2015 15:51 - 9 years ago
Guitar sounds awesome. It's got a great tone that I'd really like to use. I still don't have a proper acoustic guitar - just a couple of resonator guitar though they sound nothing like this one here.

So, you've clearly recorded/processed that guitar really well. The playing's good too.

Again, the vocals/song are not my sort of thing.

1:57 subtle big reverb on the vocal in the background I did appreciate. You could probably make more use of that trick in this track (and others). Maybe it's too subtle here.

1:34-1:45 is probably my favourite bit of guitar playing.

Overall: it's another good, emotive acoustic pop song. Again, not a style I choose to listen to but well done. Damn, if I keep reviewing your tracks, I might end up saying pretty much the same thing in every review. I'll try not to.
BradoSanz replied 11th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Haha, thanks for your input StaticNomad! I know - we all got dem tastes for music that is unique to who we are as people and musicians. Appreciate the honesty, even if my type of pop isn't to your tastes :)
DanGoldstein 11th Feb 2015 12:14 - 9 years ago
guitars sound beautiful to me. your singing is great (including the high notes - great!) beautiful song. fav!
BradoSanz replied 11th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks, midisparks! Much appreciated sir.
Livingsoulsdie 11th Feb 2015 11:46 - 9 years ago
This track sounds really good aside from everything you put down in the info. Man at 1:34 It would sound so freaking powerful if a whole band came in as a chorus with really punchy drums flooded cymbal type of stuff. Overall I love the piece.
BradoSanz replied 11th Feb 2015 - 9 years ago
Hmmmm, thats actually a pretty interesting idea LSD :P I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the suggestion haha
EazyBeatz 11th Feb 2015 06:27 - 9 years ago
Love this piece. I've been gone awhile and I'm glad to be back and hear this composition. Beautiful work all the way. I would like my own copy though, could u help me out with that? work like this deserves a special spot in my personal library ! Hope all is well -EazyBeatz :)

Description : Again, another early production from like two years ago. I had a cheap little Yamaha acoustic guitar that I borrowed and mic'd and some congas that were given to me as a birthday present. I used my iPad GarageBand app to record the strings and the big bass drum thingy at the interlude and little electric guitar parts in there too haha. All the vocals were done by myself and my brother throws in some little things here and there with his voice :P Enjoy!
