Second Face - Alt. Rock Ballad

Hi all,

After a long writing pause I wanted to write an acoustic guitar ballad - something I never did.  It ended up sounding a bit like my favourite acoustic ballad of all time - Follow the Sun Down from Dark New Day.  Feedback welcome before I fine tune it, write lyrics or can it if you think it sucks!

It sounds nice as far as it goes, Jonathan, but it’s a bit hard to say any more without a melody or lyrics.

Hi all,

Thanks the feedback.  I have dilema - I wrote a 2nd acoustic piece this morning and I am not sure which has the most potential.  Could you please take a listen and let me know which to you has the most potential.  This new song needs a solo which I have not yet added.  And happy holidays to all!

Hi all,

Got inspiration for Space and Time - here is an updated version with lyrics and a solo I am not 100% happy with:

I really like the music and “feel” of this! :)
To me the acoustic guitars are very very bright though. Sounds like an under bridge
piezo pickup. Try adding a mic to your setup for a warmer “body” sound :)

Thanks for the feedback - yes, this a crappy piezo pickup.  I plan to re-record with a mic or two for a better sound, but want to get the song structure fixed first.
