    First post here on Twanger Central.
    Here's a few tracks. Drums, acoustic and vocals only, so I suppose you could twiddle along with them.

    G'day mate....

    Since I did suggest to put up your efforts I should chime in.

    These are all fine efforts as far as what you have....being acoustic/drums only.
    Within the ' acoustic ballad' genre.....I think they all have potential to be more fleshed out with a bass line, maybe some harmonies, lead line some editing and remixing.

    The ones I like most are Poets and Spend Time In A Bottle.
    Poets for the vocal melody/lyrics and the Clapton-esque vocal style of STIAB.

    These all have fine potential to be even better with more instrumentation and remixing.
    Some will note the length of Shooting From the Hip and Spend Time In A Bottle.
    I would say yes...they are a bit long and may not hold the listeners genuine interest all the way through.
    But....they're your songs and I call it creative license.

    I think they can be much better with the thoughts I provided.
    You 'mustered up the courage'....well done.

    Hope that helps....

    Thanks for the feedback. Food for thought.

    All the tracks are drums, acoustic, vocals, and bass. (I forgot to include bass in my description). Headphones will make the bass more prominent.

    I hear the drums albeit very low in the mix and really could not discern the bass.

    Well...as a habit I don't listen to tracks on headphones and never mix on them although I'm aware that many do prefer that method.
    It just doesn't work for me but everyone has their own approach to mixing.

    Thanks for responding......
