Song: Beautiful Sound

Reviewer: Brenda Craven

Positive Comments: What a wonderful message within this music and lyrics. In a world full of chaos and violence, more positive, encouraging, and hope filled music is needed. When mere words and speeches are not effective, music moves the heart, emotion, and thoughts. This song does it all. Great music, great vocals, and the lyrics are stellar. I’m very impressed with what has been submitted here!

Constructive Comments: Not one critique from me.

For a Friend by Marc S. Pate

Broadjam Artist: Marc S. Pate
Song: For a Friend

Reviewer: Jeff Roberts

Positive Comments: This is where guitar chops, arrangement skill, and a real ear for beauty come together! There is some majorly wonderful stuff going on here in sound that reminds me of Duane Allman’s Little Martha and Steve Kimock’s music. There are some crazy good moments going on here, including the climactic part at 1:19. Nice nice nice!

Constructive Comments: I’d remove the chorus effect. IMO it’s really killing the tone of the guitars and cluttering up the space so you don’t hear the excellent fingerpicking and voicing that you’re doing. I’d also drop the little chime/tinkle you’re adding–it’s almost like one of those bell tree things the Smooth Jazz dudes do at the end of a Kenny G solo. I’m not into the harmonics, I think they’re kinda cliche & weak next to the other stuff but that’s me. I’m picking at stuff only in the interest of making good great, and there are already some freakin great moments here!

Broadjam Artist: FRED GROSS
Song: Come On Over

Reviewer: Norb Studelska/Upper Air Disturbance

Positive Comments: I really liked the interplay between the two rythm guitars. Nice lead breaks, totally hot effect on the intro lead got my attention immediately. Perfect quality for the lead vocal. Nice easy blues pace. Great instrumental mix, nothing was dominating over the vocal, and the guitar and organ leads came to the front. I wanted to hear more. You know your genre’.

Constructive Comments: I have nothing constructive to offer, you “nailed” it.

Positive Comments: Great sounding beat, I love the sound of the drums and the horns really have a good blend, sounds a bit like Steely Dan.

Constructive Comments: Beautiful sounding Jazz – really makes you feel like flying, the only thing I would add is a different type of lead guitar solo with a slide – best wishes and may God bless!

Reviewer: Randal Dunkle

Positive Comments: Very nice sound – I especially like the piano runs, really has a very staccato sound, I also like the sax – very cool!

Constructive Comments: Not a lot of negatives – very professional sounding tune, I think the saxophone may take over this a piece a little too much even though it sounds fantastic! Instead of a flat top guitar – I would like to hear a little more of an edge with a lead electric guitar – best wishes and may God bless!

Positive Comments: Wasn’t expecting the beautiful chords at the beginning. They got my attention. Sounded like an intro to a Deadmau5 tune.

Constructive Comments: I was waiting for this to really take off and get pumping!! But then I’m a freak for tunes like I remember by Deadmau5! Builds nicely and some beautiful moments in there.

Positive Comments: Nice recording. Clean intro draws in the listener. Kind of Latin feel, could apply a Bossa Nova(ish) on this one. Nice Chorus. Very beautiful chord progression, good groove and I like the arrangement I loved the Coda where you grooved on the reprise to the fade… You don’t hear music written like that much anymore so the more I hear it the more happy I am. So many good things about this track, love the live feel and respect for the song writer!! Al the elements are there and shinning… super nice bridge and guitar break leading back to the hook. There are too many great hooks in this song to count!

Constructive Comments: Would have liked a more prominent drum track. The drum machine parts are buried leaving me feeling something is missing sonically. My man Chet, you and I need to do a collaboration…… If you have something laying around that needs drums, it’s on me. 🙂
