Musically very nice. The sound is like a very advanced GM2 library, not real that is.

Its all East-West Rare Instruments except for a higher pitched tamborine, a recorder and SAM free stomps.

Any ideas on how to make this library sound more real?

I guess I'm not really sure how to program a guitar strum. I felt that all of a strum would be nearly the same velocities since it gets one pressure from the strum. I also thought that the end of the first strum of two might be less velocity as the hand comes up and gets ready for another strum.

Sounds like music that would fit to a computer game like Pirates!, or a wild west RTS. Nicely done.

I like the piece a lot... it brought a smile to my face.

As far as the guitar sound goes, I think that it's too even in velocity, and possibly too high. It sounds to me like if I wanted to play that part, I'd have to nearly "pop" every note, or at least down pick every note very hard. I'm mostly talking about the single note stuff, but that might help the strums, too.

Ron, fun piece. Ra sounds pretty clear.

This reminds me a lot of the music for The Hobbit video game. I can't remember the name of the guys that did the music (Red something studios), but they some of this type of song - and made good money doing it!

Good work,
