I think you have some workable ideas.

Even for demo purposes your going to need a better recording set up than this.
It's not dynamic enough to allow for any "musical" commentary what so ever.

One thing ( among many ) I have learned using this music forum as a sounding board is that even if your just bouncing ideas IE incomplete compositions for comment so you can learn and improve.
We just have to go the extra mile in production.

Otherwise it's kinda like having a out of focus picture of a beautiful woman.
No one else can really tell what it is you have.

Yeah, I agree with Sans in that the song motifs are workable and worth expounding on. You can hear theres quality to your vocals with the dynamic flow and pitch control ya have , but for a 'musical " response , you need to multi track so you can get them out in front of the gtr. Add some comp/limit and a touch of delay to them to fatten them up and gel better with instruments. But yeah, for being in the rough demo stage, I say keep up the good work!

I'll *third* the comments regarding recording. Sounds like you recorded in an echoey room with a single mic. 'Demos' like this are fine for getting an idea to a band/partner to work on, but not for 'how do you like my song?'
Listened to some of all of them, one thing I noticed is you are mostly playing the acoustic like it was an electric. The two exceptions were 'Come To Be', and the intro to the next song (sorry, didn't write the name down).
Congratulations on expanding your playing abilities and styles - never limit yourself to one or two genres!

"Something new" is the best of the lot imo.
Definitely some potential in some of your ideas. Good tonal quality in your voice. And I'm sure you know how difficult it can be to find a good vocalist.
You're on the right track from what I hear.
Good Luck to you.

Its a hell of a start. Like everyone here is saying, once you layer and polish this it is going to be money. Wiseman is my favorite btw.

Okay so i'm almost ready to give up on my buddy helping me record. Can anyone recommend a reasonably affordable condenser mic(s)

LOL look up CAD mics, I bought some a couple of years ago, they were $49 a piece, we actually use them live for our drum overheads, but Ive used them for recording and they dont sound that bad to me. They do require phantom power, the only drawback for recording.

Our bassist has recorded me in his studios, and lately hes been using SM 57s of all things for vocals and to mic acoustic guitars.

I also had an AVLEX, dont know if they make them anymore, it was very warm, and it cost around $200.

But dont get caught up on names and certain mics, just try to find something that works for you.

Hell Ive used everything from NEUMANS to these little Radio Shack plastic mics and if you play around with them enough you can get almost anything sounded decent.

Good Luck
