A Perfect Day is way creepy, and stuck a memory chord in my head. Then I thought of the Stranglers "Men in Black" as your vocals tone is very similar to the 1980s rendition. It's amazing to me how many geezers are still out there, but it has occurred to me that we all might actually get better like wine and cheese as we age. Ever since Little Big Man, I have often quoted "It is a Good Day to Die," but never the Perfect Day. I think that day has passed.

Ah, the Cowpies. So nice to toss! Make great sculpture and burn real good when dried. One of the things that brings stink tears to my eyes when I think of my native Vermont. Paddies in the Field would make a great song, too! Keep up the Big Stink!

Hey drumschool.....Thanks for the review and comments on "Trance"......very helpful.
You're right, it probably does belong more in Trip Hop but I had the name picked out before I put it on broad jam.....Make sense??? Maybe not.
Anyway thanks again and good luck in all you do..............Jim

Mr. Gross ..........Thanks for taking the time to review my song "The Prophet and the Writer". Having said that, I think giving anyone an "8" on an original piece of music they've written is ABSURD!!!

yes, the number system is weird and doesn't mean Anything. I hope the comments were helpful. Hope they weren't too critical. I think I listened to this song last night and liked it but since we're asked to provide "feedback" that inevitably comes across as negative. Noone can take away someone's talent though and if the song is ever sold and played then you can always laugh at the fools who critiqued your work unfairly and gave 8s. I sometimes feel weird using good, better, best as a way of evaluating songs. That's even worse than the numbes because it is comparative rather than individualistic.

Hey James........I listened to a few of your tunes today. Very nice. Excellent guitar work. I really enjoyed "You Never Know". In the early '90s I played bass in a blues/rock band in S.E. Wisconsin and that song took my mind back. Thanks for the trip. Good luck........Jim

Hey Larry.........You've written some fine pieces.....I heard a tune in the "6 pack" thing that was excellant and sounded like your singing. I'm a Woodstock generation musician and love to hear the vocal harmonies of that time. Good luck in the contest and in all else..........Jim

Hey Jim: Thanks so much for your comments. I have to admit that CSNY is as much an influence as the Beatles. And that's just the beginning. Wanted to protest using a similar sound to CSN and also make a strong statement about the current state of affairs. Thanks so much for your comments and support.
Keep in touch.

Kate.............Thanks for the nice review of our song "Distance". It was written as a humorous piece. Kind of tongue in cheek. When we play it live most people are laughing by the end. Some don't know what to think. But it's meant to be a fun song.
Thanks again for your thorough review and good luck with your music..........Jim

Hey Shameless.....Thanks for the nice review of our piece "Dawn". "Blinded Vision" is an interesting piece. It sounds like something that would work well as background in film or on television.
Good luck and thanks again..................Jim

Hey Roy! What's up! Wanted to say thanks for the opportunity to shine on Broadjam!!! I love the site! Do you have any pointers?

Strezs, Thanks for your comment, here are some tips:
1.) The most important thing one can do, on Broadjam or any other site, is collaborate with other artists. If you write songs with 50 other writers, you now have 50 other people pushing your music and increasing your exposure. If you look at the Top 10 songs at anytime in history, it's rare to find a song that was written by just one person. It has happened, but the greatest songs have come from songwriting teams. From a technical perspective, your name is now appearing in more search results and you therefore have more relevance to the search engines (not a huge point, but important enough to note.) More importantly, it makes us all stretch when we write with someone new.
2.) Get involved in reviewing. Top 10s on Broadjam provide good exposure and to qualify for them, reviewing is required. Also, listening and reviewing makes our ears keener and exposes us to other writing and producing styles. Therefore, improving our skills as writers.
3.) Connect to like artists and others as well. Not only doesn't if give you more exposure to them, your photo is on their profile and you are in touch with any updates they post. It seems that the most successful on Broadjam have hundreds of connections. I'm sure it's not true across the board, but it certainly doesn't hurt to add another connection.
4.) Listen to a lot of music. Every time you listen to a song, a link is sent to the notification page of your connections and this provides more exposure for you.
5.) Update your profile regularly as it will send notifications as well. Add a new song, photo, bio or update your news. We recommend doing this weekly.
6.) Get involved in contests, especially the 6-Pack since it's free. It brings lots of exposure to the participants and many friendships and collaborations have come out of this.
7.) If you have an interesting thought, contribute to the blogs. Lots of folks read and it's likely you will find others with similar thoughts.
8.) Use the comments section of Broadjam as a tool for announcements to your contact list. I wouldn't overuse it, but it is an effective way to communicate with your connections (and theirs).
9.) There are lots of other things, such as music licensing, contests, hosting, etc., that you use on the site as well. Some of these cost money, however all of the above doesn't cost anything. Put a plan together with the above tasks and update weekly, monthly, etc. It's extremely important to update your profiles regularly, not only on Broadjam, but every site that you are on.

Hope this helps and best of luck,

Roy

Collaboration rules... By the end of the year I'll actually have more projects done this year with other artists than on my own.

Not only does it broaden our exposure, but its gone far to help me evolve as a producer, and the results only continue to improve as we go.

Its a huge ocean of little fish... But if you can get enough little fish together... Suddenly you've got a school of them, and its harder not to notice.

Jamie and Orquestra Darma............I'm listening to "Road Warrior" for the second time because I couldn't believe how great the piece is. You guys just blew my mind!!!
Excellant playing by everyone. I play electric bass guitar but I'm thinking of quiting after hearing the great acoustic bass player in this piece. [maybe I'll just practice more]
Give him my congrats if you get a chance.
Again, excellent work and I'll be listening to more of your music.
Good luck..........Jim
