Happy new year everyone!

This is one of "Hammock" styled songs I made. You know, it's not cool to copy other bands, but it's really cool to get inspired by their style and music. So, I did it! I just plugged my guitar, I started recording a very unusual but effective progression (I-vi-I-III) and then, I added a layer of reverb and a layer of cello on top. Cellos are not that loud, but still enough to give the piece a soul!

Ambient music is a genre by itself..  It can sometimes just be 'audio wallpaper', soothing, not really going anywhere.  I'd be tempted to add some subtle tidbits to it. I 'think' a hear a cello line there somewhere in the mist. It might be nice if it rose up just a tiny bit, stated something and then backed into the mist again..  Perhaps some slight 'tinkles'.  

I am not familiar with Hammock.  And if it was your intention to work in that vein, well that's another thing.  I think it's OK to copy other bands, as an exercise in discovery or your own music. or learn some new techniques, absolutely nothing wrong with that.  I appreciate that you tackle different approaches in your uploads.  GOOD
