Mixing & Song Critique

Shark Sandwich (a rock instrumental homage) — how is it? Thanks.

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here — I’ve been working on some new stuff. Borrowed a friend’s 7-string, and additionally used my tele and a semi acoustic. Drums were programmed in EZDrummer, bass programmed in EZBass and strings using Logic’s studio strings.…

Anyway, I appreciate any feedback on the overall mix, the arrangement or anything really!
Thanks in advance for the listen!

Cheers very much,


Feel Like Making Love, 1975

"Feel Like Makin' Love" is a song by English supergroup Bad Company. The power ballad originally appeared on the LP Straight Shooter in April 1975 and was released as a single in August of the same year. It was named the 78th best hard rock song of all time.

Make love, not war!!!
For peace in our troubled world!!!

Hope you enjoy my acoustic version.
Feedback and comments is much appreciated.

Your Mother Should Know, 1967

Paul McCartney began writing "Your Mother Should Know" on a harmonium at his house in St John's Wood, London. 

Mothers know best, and give them credit, as a love of a Mother transcends all explanations this world can offer, and is genuinely pure and natural.

This tune is for all Mothers, on this Mother's Day!
My first grandchild, grandson Misiri Kalayaan is born today!  Mother Rocio, Congratulations!

My Mama, and my lovely wife Mimi, and to all Moms - Thanks for all that you do, for your unconditional love!!

Friday night lift ... "When I Arrived"



When I arrived
I found I'd gone nowhere
My baggage got lost somewhere on the way

It was a lousy day
Everything not going my way
And yet I had to smile

Because every day is beautiful, you know?
When you've got your peace of mind?

You really have arrived

I traveled so far
And wound up going nowhere
A smile on my face
After running in place
It's just another day
Every day’s really quite okay

Dream A Li'l Dream, 1931

"Dream a Little Dream of Me" is a 1931 song with music by Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt and lyrics by Gus Kahn.

Wow, 1931, very nice!!! 

This song is dedicated to all beautiful dreams from our world, may they all come true!!!

This is one of my early recordings, and I was just starting to do this venture. 
Hope you enjoy!!!
