Wonderful acoustic based Song

This song influenced by folk music and contemporary music style. I felt compelled to listen precisely. All the way from stanza to the chorus are accompanied of two acoustic-guitars. Very melodius played and sounds lively. The melodical impressions brings alternation into the music. Remarkable song from Duane Risley as vocalist and instrumentalist. The romantic passion of the lyrics perhaps directed from father to son or daughter. Imaginative transition of the bridge increases the music and is an extra factor. This song is from a musician, who understand to give an account in words about someone or something, including all relevant characteristics and events. I´m sure you will also likewise add him. Let others know your recommedation.

Melodic- rock sound

This sweet song has a good country sound, but the guitar is melodic too. The voice and the groove of the song reminds the rock ballads. So there's a different level of professional sounds.

Drums yes!

Hi Duane! Thank you so much for asking me to review your music! You have a sort of country sound to your song. The lead in on the guitar is easy listening and lurers the listening ear in. I do think your song would have an even better catchy sound to it if you DID add drums and also perhaps speed up the tempo a little more. It is a fairly simple sound and that can have it's own beauty to it as well, but YES! I say Go for it on the drums and see if your toes start tappin! Have a beautiful day!! Rachel :-)

I can imagine very well how big the step is to go from pure acoustic guitar music to a setup with drums. It is not only adding noise, it adds speed (sometimes even precision in speed) and also sort of pressure or drive. I personally like this very much and always add at least some percussion even to my quitest songs. What I would never like to miss, though, is a bass guitar. I'd always first go for a bass guitar and then add percussion or even drums. In your case, just take some deep tones and let em stand for a few seconds. Don't play too many notes on the bass but just let it fill up the bottom with some mighty and deep tones. This will give a sharp contrast to your voice which would do your song good. And then you should add the drums, maybe rather with rimshots than with a full snare. Basically this is really a nice song, and I guess it is worth trying this one with both additional instruments!

Hey Duane you have an incredible vocal and this track is mellow and well lyrical, I know you’re on your way to greatness it has the touch of consciousness with a nice mellow groove making the listener want to relax and hear more. You have done well on this track and the instrumental as well is well on point complimenting the song itself. I must say it was a pleasure listening to you work and I urge you to keep it up

Dear Duane, Your concern about percussion is fitting. I like the soft tap and percussion in the background. Maybe some added soft percussion instruments like the soft brush stick on the cymbals with added triangle at key junctures. You have an soulful vocal talent infusing your song lyrics with emotion that is believable. I do love these beautifully crafted lyrics which remind me of the song by the Dutch band "Bread" called "It Don't Matter To Me." which I first heard when I was a teen. The instrumental is at the right sound level for your vocal talent and also beautifully executed. I would suggest this song be sung as a duet if you have a female vocal singer who you believe would complement your voice. Then the both men and women listeners can picture it in the eyes of their hearts and it becomes more relatable. This song should get more airplay. I suggest putting it on Jango Radio with radio airplay online. You would pick up fans worldwide. The airplay is free for the first 100 plays. Check it out.

Nice tune

I like the message that the song delivers, the only thing I would do is to take some of the monotony out of the song. The verse tends to repeat and repeat. Maybe try just 2 verses before the chorus. Other than that I like it.

Call On Me

This is my first review of a song her, so I apologize if I ramble. I listed to a number of songs before I reviewed one. Duane Risley song Call on me delivers a soft melodic easy listening tune. If this is a song he was using to include drums, they wer added tastefully. Not at all intrusive, but helped drive the tempo. Duane’s voice expresses the feeling of the song nicely. It makes the listener feel safe and secure. It’s truthful and trusting. His voice reflects a deep feeling for whoever he wrote this for. The mix was well done as well. Not to much clutter or added superfluous effects to distort the softness of his message. The guitar lulls you into listening closely to the information he is delivering. Arpeggios are nicely incorporated into the tune as well. He may be talking to his son or daughter. I’ve written songs like this as well, so I can understand where he’s coming from. At least it speaks to me. Thank you for writing it. Nicely done.

I like the originality of your work. Strong message and creativity is a big plus. Good production, I can hear some good vocals to this, good job on the final mix-down. I can tell you have your heart and soul into what you do. Keep on pushing and never give up or get distracted in pursuing the dream of making it. I like the instrumental blend of sounds with some vocals and the production on the track is good. Keep up the great work! Peace!!!

In My Opinion


Greetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, Consider a touch of processing on your vocals a little , not singing in a tunnel, more natural sound, but, not dry and flat either. I really enjoyed the message in this song.Think about a music solo break to step away from vocals for a short period in future works. Vocals are smooth and natural, sort of - down to earth as they say, and extremely peaceful. The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. Very Nice Ending. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny

Perfect bar song


This song sounds so simple but there's a lot going on. It sounds quite a difficult song to me, being slow and sparse, but I think it really works. Genuinely not wishing to do the artist a disservice here, but it sounds like one of those empty bar, post gig Tom Waits or Nick Cave songs. I'm not sure about the drums either, but then, I always struggle with drums. I'd try removing them. I can actually hear strings or harmonica instead. But it's still quite atmospheric as it is.

acustic canzone tipi filastrocca con un inciso per cambiare il genere e' questo la strofa non sarebbe male ma si ripete almeno 4 volte poi il solito inciso con sola chitarra e' anche più' difficile cantare ma bisogna anche dire che c'e' qualcosa di buono nella ricerca di una melodia gradevole e il signor Duane ci mette del suo e anche passione ma si può' anche migliorare e di sicuro sarà' la prossima volta
