Like the b/t, D. Strings sound good.

This is a really great alt-rock treatment. The guitars on their own building to the strings which climb in intensity the longer they go build suspense, until the percussion drops out, where the strings are pure pathos and intensity as the guitars pound harder.

Its a nice touch that there’s no real bass presence until the 3/4 mark or so. And ending on a solo vocal note is a perfect close.

Wow, very good description of the track.
I’m always glad, that professional musicians like you appreciate my work. Thank you, both!

Very nice Donnie. This reminds me of Alanis Morissette. Excellent treatment to this wonderful Snowflake pell.

Hey thanks a lot and yes, your’re right! Sometimes I hear a bit Melissa Etheridge in it, but Alanis Morissette is as cool as her.

Excellent work, Donnie! As you mix the guitar with violins, it’s delightful! Did you make this mix specifically to me? :)

Indeed I listened your orchestral tracks again.
But be sure, I’m still far away from your professional and musical level.
Thanks for comment!

Glad you like it! Well, you know, with such great vocals like yours, it’s pretty impossible to create a crappy remix…

Intensity on this one is far beyond any measurement. I guess one of the reasons for it is the the missing bass.

Yes, you’re probably right. Ironically, I simply hasn’t had enough time to record the bass part. Maybe destiny. Thanks for comment!

Whoa, donnie- you rocked this. I truly love it. I don’t really know what to add… I agree with all of the praises above. You sealed the deal by adding the orchestration… So cool. Yes.
