Someone Like You by FRED GROSS

Song: Someone Like You

Reviewer: Brenda Craven

Positive Comments: Great job. I love the chords on this piece. It really is a beautiful song. Great guitar lead and instrumentation. Your voice of instruments work very well here.

Constructive Comments: On your hook, you guitar riffs are a little stacatto…short. I would suggest sustaining them a little more so your notes don’t just cut off. It will make for a smoother sounding intro. Maybe just a little more work on the mix bring up the low end a little more in the mix to balance out. Other than that, this is a great piece.

Constructive Comments: Since this song is rather short, I’m assuming this is for ad submissions. I would love to hear what you could do with as a full length piece.
