This is my first song I have played with drums. Seeing if I stay in key and all that and if any ideas were good. Thanks for looking at it let me know what you think. I used a drum pattern off ozzy's song Behind The Wall Of Sleep.

I added the better version with rhythm now.
I am interested in what you think of the end of it, with the last pinch to the drums.

You play ok and clean enough, but your timing needs a bit of work. It's like your always ahead of the beat. Try to relax a bit more and follow the rhythm.

The songidea would have sounded ten times better if the guitars were more in synch with the drums.
If done right, this could turn into a proper song.

Your pinches were great. Like Trond said, you need to work on rhythm.

I think you possibly need to manually set the track a bit back, from what i can hear you are playing tight enough, but its off beat so i would try after you record to drag the track file just a bit back.
I saw that your using acid pro.. what you can do is mark the track, then zoom in at the beginning, press F8 for no snapping and move it a little bit back.. jsut mess with it till it sounds right bascially.. other than that nice playing Adam smile.gif

Hey I fixed the rhythm problem and it really does sound a lot better. Espcially with the 2nd solo beginning it sound like 10 times better really.

It is off beat, you must first lay down drums, and then play over it thsoe riffs. Try to focus on the bass of the drum, so you can know where is the first beat.
