Another piece of Mediocracy from Me . . . (forgive the bloody drums!)

Great listen Peter , loved the trumpet player(!) and the visuals.
Bit of a James Last vibe going on with this arrangement, nice one.

Really enjoyed this, Peter. I love the introduction of the strings at 2:02. It gives it a very majestic feel while maintaining it's charm.

Not entirely sure how I feel about the ending. It's clever but leaves me a bit unsatisfied.

Great work!

Thank you guys! I think it comes to a natural end, like most songs, after about 3 minutes!

Really nice!

A good "traveling" kind of groove. Somehow reminded me of trips I've taken in the past.

And I actually liked the drum part! Especially the little anticipatory fills that happened in the toms a couple of times. To me, the main issue was that the timing was a bit off sometimes. I'm not always a huge fan of quantizing, but did you record this against you (software's) metronome? If so, some quantizing (even on a "gentle" setting) might go a long way.

Either way, nice job. And great visuals, too!

James

No, I WON'T forgive the drums! If you're unhappy with them, do them over, better! THEN show us your work.
