Hey man, thanks for the comment on Faceripper!
Nice, chilled, relaxing tune, this! I'm not an expert on the genre, so I won't comment too much on the mix - a few guys said about the rhythm so I won't mention that either. A couple of suggestions though: To me, the bass seems a bit clicky, might be an EQ thing or a playing thing... Maybe either lose a few highs or just hit the strings a bit softer? Then again, that's really a matter of preference. Secondly I think the snare at the beginning needs just a bit more ambience. I like the overall dry feeling, but I think a very little bit of reverb might help.

Aside from those little niggles though, I really enjoyed this. Nice separation in the mix, and a nice style of guitar playing for the music. Keep it up!

I dug this from the very first note. The ambient wah throughout suits the slow tempo perfectly. I appriciate the fact that you're a guitarist who doesn't need to jerk off with a billion notes per second - some of the notes you held were given perfect vibrato which I loved. I'd like to recommend that you work on tightening up your timing all around - all of your IDEAS in this song are great, yet at times it seems to fall apart due to sloppy rhythm. Overall a great, very chill tune.

thanx for the comment. yeah sometimes i may be a tad bit off ift happens but the take was mostly good so i live with errors. the other thing seems to be when i convert it from a WAV file to MP3 sometimes the track don't sync up perfectly. another thing i have to live with if i want to post online.

The slow drum beat, the resounding backing chords, and the smooth lead all give it a really chill feeling, but i feel like sometimes youre out of time with the drums, or playing on off beats, which gives it an unstable feeling. i dont know if that was intentional or not. i think the most prominent example happens around 3:14, but it recurs elsewhere too. might be something to check up on
