1. Well I meant the part that starts from 0:45 (6th video). It start with C5 power chord.

2. Thats why I wanted to ask you if the riff in gp file I sent you is diffirent enought from your Stratovarius style lesson. smile.gif It seems to be ok, but I want to hear your opinion. smile.gif

(anyway I think that these lessons are here to learn composing our own, starting with variations etc. smile.gif )

yes, I think that your riff is different enough to not being considered a copy. My lesson is also a variation a Stratovarius song, I would use it a lesson based on their style but not as a song from my own band.
The theory behind that section is what I said in my previous post, is it clear now?

Hey smile.gif

I've written a song, and recorded it with my new software (cubase elements, ez drummer). Could you please check and comment it? smile.gif
What do you think about it?

http://soundcloud.com/marcin-jakubek/heavy-power-metal-june-2012

It's my first ever home recording, but I hope that the sound isn't bad. smile.gif
I recorded it just for myself, and I want to create and record more songs in diffirent sub-genres of metal. smile.gif And maybe someday some orchestral instrumental. smile.gif

Great first recording mate!! Is this the song inspired by the Stratovarius lesson? This one has a different feel and groove so you won't have legal issues, unless not with me! biggrin.gif
What's your idea with this song? Is this an instrumental piece or you will add vocals?

Yes it was inspired by your Stratovarius style lesson. smile.gif

There should be vocal as there are verses and choruses, but I can't sing. tongue.gif Maybe other members from my band likes it and we will use it sameday. Anyway it was a real fun to record it, and that is the most important I think. smile.gif

Great! Maybe you can check the vocal range of your singer, and record a melody with your guitar... by the way, are you able to at least sing in pitch?

Well I don't know. I think I'll leave it as it is, and I'd rather move to something else. smile.gif

But by the way, what do you think about my solo in this song? smile.gif

I like your solo composition. The first part sounds perfect, then when the sweep picking starts you have some timing issues but that's regarding the performance, the creation is really cool! Well done. wink.gif

Hey,

Could you please check my new song (it's not finished yet) and tell me what do you think about it? smile.gif

http://soundcloud.com/marcin-jakubek/work-in-progress-july

I'm planning to add some solo, and again chorus part etc.

Do you have any suggestions on how to improve it? smile.gif

Hi mate, I think that the rhythms are really interesting if we isolate them, and they also make sense together, however I have a feeling that you are having in mind the concept of song. I think that you are thinking on combining rhythms and riffs but not on a harmonies that could be followed by a memorable melody sang by a singer or a guitar. Do you think on this while you are composing?

Well i'm thinking mainly about riff and rhythms.

Then I try to sing something to check if it possible for a vocalist. Anyway I think it is possible to sing melodies to these riffs, what do you think?

yes, it's possible, but my suggestion would be to think on both things at the same time, that will give you a better sense of how the piece will sound when it's finished and will help you to choose the best structure and also make some harmony changes that make the melody more interesting and catchy.

Great! You will start composing in other way, the repetitions and the harmonies will be less aleatory and the overall piece will be better structured. In that way you would work as a composer and a producer at the same time, it's much more effective and is more possible to create a memorable metal song. smile.gif
