My Feedback

Music - 7.5
Instruments - 8.5
Performance - 8
Mix - 8

Overall - 8

Comments: Could use a little more variation to the chord progression musically but all in all, pleasant enough if slightly generic. Decent mix. Pad a little dull but not terribly so. A little EQ to brighten it up will work wonders. Not bad at all.

This was kind a different use of the pads. It created a spacey atmosphere for the guitar, percussion and other things to work in and contrast with.

I enjoyed it!

Absolutely loved the guitar. You knocked that one out the park. What sample library was that?
Not a fan of the hard panning of the pads, it knocks me off balance, never got used to it.
Overall liked it.

Thank you all for your valuable feedback. The guitar came from Heavyocity Scoring Guitars, which has some lovely loops/samples in there. I've pulled in those pads as I accept they were a little too separated and given them a touch of air in the eq. I can only change the track on SoundCloud as I cannot see a way on YouTube to replace an existing track without deleting the video.
