Very cool! You have a great voice. Lyrics are very well done! Are those real drums? I don't hear any bass guitar???

great voice, a pleasure to listen, cool solo too, the only thing i missed here,
i would add something else in the chorus or would change something, because all parts of song sound similar and only higher vocal notes give me understanding, that chorus began already,
but that's just my nitpick . Nice song!

well the first track is an older one - the one this post was originally referring to is called "BOTS" not "flagplanting"

Well what I heard is a song called "Goodbye" and I liked it a lot. I liked everything about it, it has a nice flow and very nice tasty guitar. The vocal sounds good and fits the song well.

Kind of and 80s but a nice 80s.

Good one Jason

It is good, if you heard this on the radio you would think it was one of the long-ago american crooners. There is a bit of everything in it, very well done.

I have never been more focused on it, and I am working on it as much as I possibly can. Life has been rough, but that hasn't slowed me down. lol

I am sure you will get there, just rush /-- EDIT -- / I meant... Don't rush it and mess it up. Everything I have heard so far I like.

Hi Jason, I listened to "BOTS" too, it's very different then "Goodbye", but it still shows your very tasty guitar and good vocals.

You also have a good way of putting your songs together.

I got to admit I did like "Goodbye" the most, it's a little more up my alley.

*blush*

thanks! the guitar in goodbye is far more put together, that's going to stay that way. The guitar in BOTS is a single take, just to get the song out for potential collaborators
