Does everyone else listen back to their recordings one day and think "this is pretty sweet" and then the next day listen again and think "oh this is so embarrassingly tragic?"

LoL

What gets me is when I receive some feedback, listen again and realise that delivering something better was well within my ability, more often than not when it comes to the mixing rather than the playing ... my latest is no exception and I wish I could have submitted the re-mixed version from AVOYP as the entry. 

On the plus side, I view it all as learning and as long as I am getting a little better slowly but surely then nothing I have produced, despite the many flaws, leaves me feeling is was embarrassingly tragic.  I guess that is the upside of being a relative beginner :)

Darkly atmospheric and effective.
Variety in your chord-voicing and in the top notes you picked when playing arpeggiated helped give depth and interest to a minimalistic chord progression.
It's stark and short yet you managed to give it dynamics and life.
Good job.

Love this song and you do it very well, songs like this are much more about what you put in than doing it 'right' and you do it real well - very dark song but you get there! I don't think guitar is out - 12 strings always sound a bit like that - which is why people use them :)

Great stuff :)

Justin and Richard, many thanks for your feedback and, once again, for the time you put into this contest.

A little late, but hey...

What a great performance!
Love this song and you do it justice.

Great black tone/vibe in it.

Very good!
