    In middle school in 7th grade, I played "Imperium." We had trouble learning it due to having so many beginners; it would have been nice to listen to this before attempting to play it, as we would have learned it quicker. This CD is pretty good, I especially liked "Ancient...

    Voices." Sweeney does a good job of composing chord progressions in such a way that the song sounds more advanced than it really is, thereby keeping the audience pleased, while motivating the musician to learn more difficult pieces. In general, I like how he composes his snare drum parts.
