Ok, so I recently asked for people's help on creating an instrumental song for my girlfriend.......and after some helpful posts I decided to sit down and work on a melody or a small phrase and just record it. I recorded a few short lines and wondered if this was what everyone meant, any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated!! And apologies for the sound, my Pod XT is in the rehearsal room and Im at home so I am using a Line 6 Floor Pod and its not too great sad.gif

Part of me thinks it might be too sad to be an instrumental for my girlfriend, but part of me says I could start sad and that could be the part of my life without her, then I could change the tempo and the feel of the song into a happy, uptempo number and that could be when I met her?!? I suck with instrumentals lol......Anyway, hope you enjoy and can help me out,

Hi Ian, I think you got a good start there man and personally don't think it's too sad at all. smile.gif Just IMO, I think it would sound better if you held the notes a little longer with some heavy vibrato to better capture the mood. I think bends and pre-bends with wide vibrato can really set-up a feeling!
