Hello -- thanks for sharing your tune. I really liked it. I certainly was tapping my foot. I'm not at all an expert on mixing and mastering... sorry. But I can say that I am playing it on my 15 year old computer speakers, and it sounds great with a clear separation of the parts.

By way of other hopefully constructive feedback -- to me, the first 1:44 sounds like a backing track.. my ears were waiting for a melody to kick in, but it never did. Then at 1:44, there's the cool gating effect and the track transforms into a really interesting mixture of different sounds and rhythms that evolves and changes to the end. That part was great! But the waiting to get there was too long, IMO.

Thanks for putting your music out there.

hey rajiv, good to hear this! I assume the bass dropped out a bit on your computer speakers which plays a pretty big part especially since the composition (as you mentioned) is a bit thin. Thanks for reviewing

Anyway, I think squirrels are cute little animals!

Yes - this is a nice relaxing percussive song. Even with a little bit
of variety and little melody sprinkling. I can enjoy it - wonderfully
done! :clap:
