Hey guys,

I was just screwing around when I came up with this, thought it was kinda catchy. It's by no means professional, and I was trying different things/riffs while recording.

Just for fun, enjoy. I would like to hear a recording with this one if anyone can come up with lead part.

Sounds like there's some Black Sabbath thrown in there too at times smile.gif

This could turn into a cool song with some work.

Yeah, I'm not sure what's the deal. It always sounds different come from your amp. Basically I have no line-out on my amp, so I tried running it through the effects loops -> into my computer.

I think my next purchase is going to be one of those USB condenser mic's.

How about trying some software amps in the meantime?

Very nice riffing. I like the groove on the main riff, but the sound is maybe too harsh. The concept is great, nad yes it does remind on Sabbath too smile.gif (That's a good thing btw). Drums are also very synthetic, they sound like a machine. So my first step would be to xix the sound of guitars. You can do this by making a sound little fatter, by actually rolling off the drive and making a double shot that you will later on put in stereo.
