Default Four to Three video {slide show}

I'm still trying to decide if I like this tune of mine and whether I should re-record, develop it more...... I have a love/hate relationship with some of my compositions

I always prefer to listen to music without watching the slideshow, so as not to be distracted by the beautiful pictures.
For my part I find this piece well done, it seems complete.

I like it, Barry! I think the melodic tones are different enough and yet compliment each other.
As Tommy Emmanuel ( who I'll see again in concert next month!), indicates "say what you want to say and then get out"! (paraphrase).

One thing that's helping your tunes is that you're using the DAW to fade out at the end. It's a small thing, but I always kind of look for that instead of things ending like they were abruptly cut off. IMO, it's often what you're left with at the end that can support a lasting impression of a tune.
Hope that helps!!
Best,
Fred

Well, I thought that was really nice, Barry. I enjoyed your musical piece -- I thought it was well done and quite melodic. The guitar sounds good, your playing sounds good, and the piece flows quite well.

And I liked your slides. The pictures seemed almost impressionistic, which was cool -- they seemed to match your guitar work, which was also kind of impressionistic.

Very nice!

- Glenn

I thought that was a lovely piece Barry. I think it stands on it's own as is, but you could always develop a bit more and lengthen it a little. I don't know what kind of problem you could have with that one...

Thanks Glenn. Sometimes I'll spend more time than I should just getting the photos. There's so much great stuff out there.

What a beautiful piece of music. Why wouldn't you develop it. I like it as is, but I'm sure you could build it further if you want.
I Like!

I like this a lot, I think it sounds great. I like your approach when you slow things down and then get things underway again. The only thing I'd change is make it longer! HA! seriousness do what you feel here,.. I just really like the textures your'e getting, but really it's perfect just like that.

And as a lover of landscape photography, I also liked the aspect of it too.

Nice job Barry.

Thanks Rmp, I enjoy doing these slide show videos. It beats looking at an old playing a guitar
