It’s Snow nice Tom. Lovely picture you paint and I like the way to mix up guitar parts for variation. Good one.

Beautifuk Tom. Really liking the arpeggiated guitar bit in the softer parts, huge dynamic play in this and you know I’m a sucker for big dynamics. Just about the point where I’m missing pet dog’s toe tapping rhythm, here it is! This song has it all for me, and it sounded like snow to boot – actually, you know what – it reminded me very strongly of the Peanuts Christmas special soundtrack at first. Unusual soubd from you, you wear it well my friend!!

Lovely song Tom, nice to hear a nice quiet tune that hits the spot, you don’t have to bust your lungs apart for people to hear you.

Nice one Tom, nicely sung & performance

Curious one this, I really like the verse and chorus structures independently, but I think you could transition between the two parts more fluidly. The tune’s quite short so I think there’s room to do that without impacting on what is essentially a really nice song. Regardless, an enjoyable listen

Interesting progression and resolves challenge the listener, a terseness and complicated mix of major sevenths, diminished and inversions. It had a lot of uplift in the chorus, to me just the chorus could be the whole song in a way. Original and new, well done.

Magical!

Yip it’s another good one, and like the change, but the timing is out between the two and it jars. That said, I really liked this lyrically and melodically. Simply, you write great songs. 🙂

I like the structural and melodic components in this one. I sense infancy in the delivery but its an enjoyable listen with some depth in composition !!

Great dynamics change to the strumming. Love your choice of chords and melodies. Lovely lyrics too. A love song with mystery to it.

Raining Down, recording and video by Greebly Mork

March 3, 2020

"Raining Down", is a brand new recording of a song of mine, by Greebly Mork.
Here is the link to his version and youtube video. Then under it I’ve added a link to my rough youtube demo. When you listen, I recommend you use your headphones and you’ll get the richest sound experience on both.

Raining Down, Hunkasaurus & His Pet Dog Guitar

Greebly Mork is, not only a talented musician, arranger, etct; he is the moderator of an online Face Book music group called, "Reinventing the Wheel". The group may be virtually the only place most musicians can get a review of their music!
Mork has set up this basic rule; before a musician posts his song, he has to review and comment on 3 other songs. That has worked well. Visitors will find lots of great music from about 100 musicians so far; and each song posted on the site, is packed with lots of comments.

This is my review of "Raining Down" by Greebly Mork:

Wow! There is a lot here I wanted to talk about. Your version is topnotch studio work, compared to my rough live demo; so, listening to your version in headphones is a real treat. You get that professional crisp fullness, plus a solid clear separation of parts.
I liked the simple intro that gets things started, and keeps things in a basic form up to the big choruses, with those multi vocals you are celebrated for.
But what was a real delight to me is how you use the background vocals to, not double track the lead, but to add a second answering melody line to the chorus. That was really sweet!
Good guitar work on the middle. I like the 3 or 4 different leads that built up before the song goes back to the verses.
I may be just imagining this, but the second revised version I listened to, seemed more lean on instruments on the verses, which
gives the choruses more punch. You mentioned minor changes – was there some changes like that too?
The one thing that surprised me the most is your version sounds more optimistic than mine, believe it or not! That’s the fun of hearing another’s take.
Now every review has to have one negative – and here it is: I did NOT see the 11 measure’s long, vocal belting, "OHHHHHHHHHH" at the end on your version! But I’ll let that slide as artistic differences! LOL

Thanks for doing this! It’s a big treat to hear one’s song done up so well!

3 Points to the Music Revolution

February 27, 2020

Here are 3 major points to the music revolution:

1. Pennies for play – pay for every click anywhere online.
2. D – Pop Music – the only thing that matters is the song.
3. Big 3 Labels – 3 CEOs have ruined music – take it back.
