Pro General Comments: As you probably know- I don't comment on instrumentation as my expertise lies in overall vision, marketability, lyrics, hooks, etc..I accidentally had 3 versions somehow playing at all different times at once and thought there really needs to be some new arrangements to this song- ha ha.. Til I realized what was going on...it was my fault...Good rhyme scheme from the outset, important- for the catchy factor. Strings come in nicely. Vocals compliment the vibe of the song. If you had time to experiment,- adding a female bg vocal might add a nice dynamic?The arrangements work nicely, building the ebb and flow in all the right places. You know when you are reviewing and nothing "stops you" that the song is solid. It just flowed in all the right places. This is one of the hardest things to achieve- so you are definitely on the right track.My only suggestion- is that it is a tad hard to follow the lyric at some points. Perhaps it's a mix thing? It doesn't really bother me though and I'm a lyricist -because the flow feels so good.To me -for a song placement - (the era of the movie)- I can see girls dressed up like Pat Benetar (vibe) but it can also go more modern. But the good thing about this is- if you have a song that fits a time period from the past- you have less competition- as others are trying to write the more modern and flavor of the moment tracks. Also uptempo songs are easier to place- and even though it has a "sad topic" it has an "up" feel- so this will help you in placements. Good luck and keep on writing! You have all the necessary tools.

Quote From Pro: Boisterous feel good rock song would fit nicely in a club scene/for film/TVplacements.

Pro General Comments: attention grabbing toe tapping building spirited rousing vibrant rhythmic pulsating rocking grooving optimistic fast grooving positive confident pop rock uptempo radio friendly song. I love your vocal. It's very well done. lively in tune with high energy and lots of emotion. I couldn't understand all the lyrics and that was disappointing because i really wanted to hear the words that went along with these great melodies. I kept waiting to hear the hook but i only heard it once and it wasn't in the chorus. If it was there it was covered by the guitars and drums...nice chord changes...really well done demo as far as overall commercial sound quality. I would prefer the vocal be a little more out front to make the lyrics easier to understand. The arrangement was unpredictable but that kept me interested and I stayed interested till long after the song was over. The melody stuck in my head. This is very radio friendly.

Quote From Pro: Daniel has the vocal chops and the musical skill to be a force in the pop rock world. His voice is full of emotion and his melodies are catch and memorable. I will not be surprised to hear his songs on the radio or his music in movies television and commercials.

Pro General Comments: The hook revenge didn't fit the positive uplifting vibe that your music sends. Revenge brings to my mind a darker more sinister vibe maybe using minor chords and a more pulsating groove anticipating impending pain.these are important points when choosing a song title. For the reasons i stated I think Sweet Revenge is a stronger hook and fits the mood of your music better. You are developing your own style which is a good thing...keep breaking your level of comfortableness. What I mean by that is keep trying new things and stay in the red danger of overheating zone. It's a lot more fun to take chances and break down self imposed boundaries. The break down section is a good example...you should try to double the speed of that guitar lick the second half,show off your finger speed. The overall mix is very strong.I love the melodic theme.Theme and variations,what a concept,it still works after hundreds of years. This is a very commercial song that should find a place if you pitch it to music libraries and music placement companies for use in movies television commercials video games etc. Your production quality sounds very professional (mastered) There are several places in this arrangement where you can be unpredictable. Regardless this sounds great. Experiment and try as many options as you can. Record 15 second cues, 30 second cues, one minute edits with a hard ending and full tracks. The percussion and bass line need to be every bit as unpredictable as your guitar lead. The house is only as strong as it's foundation. Build it from the bottom up.

Quote From Pro: Max Quaini is quickly developing a unique style based on original catchy memorable melodic themes. He has the talent and skill to be a guitar virtuoso who will leave his mark in the music world.

Pro General Comments: Dear Junior:Wow. I really like the intensity of your performance. You have a great feel and timbre in your tone, especially in the softer moments. This is a great song choice - it suits you, which is half the battle. You can definitely make this into something and I think it's really smart of you to ask about it. Have you ever heard Somewhere over the Rainbow by Israel (it became a huge hit- it was all about that slinky- mysterious vibe -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1bFr2SWP1I) And you have an intensity kinda similar- it hits the nerves- which is great. You may also want to check out Julian Lennon - to see if there is anything you can learn from his styling.

Quote From Pro: Vocalist has a great heartfelt intensity,

Pro General Comments: Max, This was a difficult song to evaluate.If i had to describe it as a color it would be red,solid red from beginning to end.There were no other shades or colors involved in the song.That's why i chose fire storm as an appropriate title. The energy level didn't drop from the downbeat.The loudness meter stayed in the red throughout. This type of song would be great to use in a short scene in a movie where lots of frantic action was taking place such as car chases and violent fights etc. Music supervisors look for contrast in tempo, energy, instrumentation, arrangement, sounds, effects. The only variation came from the lead guitar playing various melodies which were good. The length of song was good for commercial radio. I was waiting for a part B to show more color and contrast but it never materialized. For what it is I can see this being used in ringtones,commercials, advertising,background music in movies and TV, segue way music, sports, exercise workouts etc.There should be plenty of leads in Broad Jam to pitch this. I'd like to see you experiment a little more and get out of your comfort zone. Take a few more chances musically. Don't play it safe...safe can be predictable and predictable can lead to complacency with your listener. Keep them guessing. Be surprising. You have the skill.

Quote From Pro: Max Quaini is a rock and roller pure and simple. His love for rock music shows in his guitar playing virtuosity. His music is high energy and very commercial.

Pro General Comments: these are the key words that this song brought to my mind as i listened...attention grabbing guitar based rock instrumental aggressive rhythmic pulsating toe tapping driving edgy gritty melodic positive spirited vibrant bouncy bright lively energetic pounding percussive rousing animated rocking loud. This song is perfect for corporate advertising commercials mall music ringtones road trip music film trailers soundtracks opening and closing credits movie and television featured instrumental fashion show game show rock night club casino concert. I would be surprised if this instrumental wasn't used by a music supervisor or signed by a music library or placement company.

Quote From Pro: I will not be surprised to hear Max's instrumentals in movies television and commercials in the near future. He has the talent to compose a very commercial catalog that music supervisors will be happy to license.
