Walt Collins
very Yes. I'm sure this took much practice to get all the parts in sync. all you need is some Jon Anderson on top. :)
 
You pulled off this highly ambitious (and presumably original) piece extremely well. Kudos!



Thanks, Walt!   A Yes reference I will take any time.   Jon, on the other hand, is a bit more difficult to track down...
 
And yes, it did take some effort to relearn the lines I did in the first place, but hey, that's part of the "experience".

That was impressive - made me think of something ELP or Yes would have done.  The mix sounded very nice to my ears.

Thanks, Douglas!   I'll take an ELP / Yes reference any day.

Hi,
Cool stuff ,brings me back ( once more) in my youth time ,something of Franck Zappa and all ,but after all I know I am wrong to compare because it is YOUR stuff and it is well done.
All the best.

This was freakin awesome. Very creative. So many breaks. Kept me on the edge of my seat, sonically speaking. You should be proud of this!

Big smile on my face. Prog will win out. I could not possibly remember all these changes. Do you start with guitar lead, and build it from there?
 
Loved the chill-ish middle section. 
 
cheers,

Thanks, Olivier!   Long-time Zappa fan myself but I don't hear him mentioned too often.   But I'll take it.

Thanks, Bob!    Yes, I am a breaks fan, and just when I thought I was out they always pull me back in...

I liked it - that's a cool progressive rock tune - I'm sure ELP or Yes would have liked it But seriously - nice job - the mix sounds good to me.  The lead guitar playing is excellent.

This is crazy stuff! I was waiting and waiting for a groove to sprout and grow for a few bars, but the phrasing was relentless...the wind up and then unleashing, bar by bar it seemed of salvo attack. I was waiting for Martin Medeski & Wood to kick in!
 
Sounded good through my Yamaha hph mt220's.

Thanks, Matt!   Yes, I do have a tendency to not sit on a groove for any length of time, though I would like to do more of that.  But hey, this one just demanded something more ADHD.       I haven't listened to MMW in quite a while though, maybe I should...

Wow!  I'm breathless!
Steve, this is good stuff!
Threw me back to MY years of listening to fusion and progressive rock.
Really good man!
After reading all the comments I don't really have anything to add, but I'm blown that you didn't write it down first (not that that matters.. MORE impressive that ventured into that "off the cuff")...

Thanks, Arlen!  Perhaps someday I'll retro less, but I suppose today is not that day.      I actually should write this stuff down more often though, because it can be difficult trying to figure out what I did after the fact.  You know, age and all.

Thanks, Antti!   I don't know what a singer would do over top of this, but I would sure like to hear it!

life is not fair
 
but that doesn't stop you from putting out kick azz music
 
best bands I 've seen were in a small bars
 
best muffins I ever had were my girlfriends, and she only bakes them for me
 
best music, and most eclectic I have heard were right here in the songs forum,
 
good is good, and you are good, no matter how old you are, or if you only get 50 listens
 
(which is about 46 more than I ever get )
 
don't stop old man , because you sound very fresh indeed

Just to echo what everybody has said, this is excellent.  The breaks and the complexity are genius and the execution is solid.  Yes and King Crimson seem the right comparison, and I would add a band I haven't thought about for a while, Brand X.  Would be fun to see a live version of this.

Thanks, Jesse!  Appreciate it.  And I agree, this forum is a great place to hear new music from all genres. 
Now get off my lawn, kid!   Oh, and get me some muffins.

Thanks, cwestmont!    Yes and King Crimson I will take any time!    As for Brand X... wow, I haven't thought about them in years.   But I really did like them, particularly that first album with Collins.   Good stuff...   now I'll have to go YouTube them.

Unorthodox Behavior was the one I really liked. I don't remember if that was the first or not. I wonder what ever happened to Percy Jones? Man that guy could play.
