Hi Guys, here's my latest composition. I wrote this about 2 months ago and finally got around to finishing it !

You might noticed that things are tuned a little... lower than usual wink.gif

OK, that was brutal.
Seriously, where do you get all these musical ideas from? You are a phrasing machine! I wish I was this creative.
Good technique is one great skill to have but being able to compose and produce all this is completely another world.
Awesome work, Ben. This sounds awesome but besides that, so much can be learned from this composition if paid enough attention.

Ey!! This is one of the most fresh instrumental guitar music that I've lately listened to! I love those phrasing and that accelerated sections that makes the piece the perfect Video Game Soundtrack. The video edition is also really cool! Well done my friend! Congrats!! smile.gif

Donuts gladly excepted Mr Ozturk !! wink.gif

Guys I discovered something that really upset me.. I uploaded a mono mix to the video instead of the stereo mix sad.gif

I don't want to take the video down and replace it now so I thought maybe the best thing is to have a link in the video information section to the stereo mix so people can here it there. I was also thinking of making it downloadable. What do you guys think ?

Where's the best place to offer this.. itunes or should I just stream it on soundcloud ? Either way, I'll have to make an account for either.. smile.gif

Yeah, it's better to just put a link (and perhaps a video annotation in the original yT video) for the stereo mix.
You're asking us if you should make it downloadable? Isn't the answer obvious? biggrin.gif biggrin.gif
I only had experience with iTunes, so I can't tell...
