I recorded this one well over a year ago, but just started working on getting a proper sound/arrangement for it
I'm pleased with the melodies and the solos, but the arrangement and the final section needs some work.

But i thought i would put up the current working mix smile.gif
Any comments/arrangement ideas?

ohmy.gif Wow! I really liked that Trond, don't really know what to say other than it is great! smile.gif Liked the fact that it smacks you right in the face as soon as it start's then relaxes the hand (so to speak) as you get further into it.

INSANE INSANE INSANE ! I really like the mix you have. The Lead Guitar volume is comparatively lower than the Rhythm guitar and I think it just fine. The punchy rhythmic is really awesome which makes the song stands out. How about the Vocal?

Sounds good man!

For my taste I would bring up the mix with the melody solo starting at 0:42 and 1:42

I really like the change that starts around 3:18 and when 3:34 comes around WoW, the licks sound cool!

At the end around 5:10 it starts to build nice for the ending but the final end left me empty.

Of course this is just my thoughts. That said I think you have another winner.

You asked.

Congrats!

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

Thanks all for the great comment biggrin.gif

Nighthawk: Figuring out names for my songs is for some reason one of my biggest problems, and if i'm really stuck, i put on the TV and pick out a random spoken word or two biggrin.gif

Outlaw2112: It's tricky to get a mix sound good on all speakers. My monitors have alot of natural treble in them, and it sounds terrible on my end if i add some more smile.gif

UnkleSkillet: You might be on to something there with the mix. I'll try that out
The ending feels a bit weak to me too and i'm trying to come up with something better.

Very nice man!


I was waiting for James Labrie (Dream Theater) to start singing at anytime!


My thought is that it needs some kind of interlude, a quiet section that has that tension that builds back into the main theme of the song. Not sure where it would be good to put it though.

Thanks! smile.gif
An interlude sounds like a good idea. I could pehaps scrap or move the section i'm not satisfied with and do something like that there.
