    I recorded this today on my new computer recording setup. Although I dont know if I mixed it right, but I need opinions from people with different sound systems and all that.

    P.S.- Ignore the playing, I know it's very rough, I just wanted to see if I could successfully make a sound clip that sounds decent.

    It's way too large.

    You have to host it somewhere else and post the link to it here.

    The maximum limit to attach a file is 324kb

    3 megs is way to large, find somehwere to host it, if that will not work, then maybe you have a favorite section that you'd like to show us, you could clip that out, and compress it a little and it should it into the 324kb requirements.

    Very nice! Tides, tranquil song, water blue bass... I see you playing in a small evening sun-lit cave by the sea, the waves lapping against the walls... :)

    Sounds good!

    It was a little choppy here and there I don't know if that was my playback or the recording, but it slipped up a few places and what not.

    as for mixing though, it was pretty decent, some times those low swooping notes came in a little too loud for my liking, and also some of the harmonics kind of got overshadowed, when I feel they were the driving force of that little piece.

    You wouldn't by chance happen to be using a BNX3? or maybe just an envelope filter and a whammy?

    I agree with you there, WR. It was the recording, not the playback.... it was pretty much a rough draft. I was using plain old chorus on the track with the harmonics and low notes, and on the "solo" track was chorus and reverb.

    How romantic. :p

    I can see myself going to your show on a beach gradually slipping into a very mellow state while sipping Patron in Mexico.....

    I like it!
