Hi, today I had one hard rejection. Absolutely agree, but I don’t understand the reason. https://soundcloud.com/acoustic-walter/oldtimer

Reason:This submission does not meet our composition/arrangement standard or our sound quality standard, unfortunately.

The recording quality of the guitars here is not up to current approval standards.

Thank you for your understanding.

What is Your opinion? Are those guitars horribles? Thanks for answer, cheers! Peter
Sorry for my english :)

Hey!

Just taken a listen to the track, I don’t think it’s so much the sound of the guitars. It think it’s more to do with the lead guitar playing. If I’m being honest, it’s not very fluent sounding. Personally I’d leave that out and replace it with a nice organ sound. Other than that, the rhythm guitars are fine along with everything else :) Very ZZ Top sounding, I like it!

Thanks! I had an idea to make it to ZZ’s. Doesn’t matter, I’m trying to fit in other agencies, but here on AJ I have the major files (or I have in plan to make it), and “others” sending elsewhere.

Cheers! :)

I like the tune! ZZ!!!!!! The guitars don’t sound full enough. They sound like they were recorded in your bedroom or something. They are very try and mid-range-ey. The sound quality leaves me wanting more. If it was blasting my face off, then it would be awesome!

The rhythm guitar does sound a little synthetic. Try retracking it with a more natural sound!

Thanks guys for help!!! I’m not sure, if one file is hard rejected, it is possible to re-sending it? After some “changes to a better”, of course.

Its certainly ZZ sounding! that riff does sound a little raspy though. How about playing the melody with a distorted hammond organ to give a deep purple feel
