Hi all smile.gif Got a new song in progress and thought i would put up what i've done so far smile.gif

As with my other songs, i'm still a bit unsure wether the arrangement is just bad or if it's odd enough to actually work as a song. It's still far from finished though.

The section that starts around 03.20 is a placeholder for a solo. Waiting untill the actual song is finished before i start on solos smile.gif

Comments, critique and advice is very welcome smile.gif

Really great idea here. smile.gif
I liked the powerful off beat rhythm and how your riffing was following the drums and bass.

Just to give a suggestion which isn't meant to criticize anything. Maybe put your solo more towards the middle of the track to hold the listeners attention and a smooth harmonized sort of small solo at the end to fade the song out on.

"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

It sounds great, but what I think is that it won't be easy to add vocals to some of Your songs. They are very interesting thanks to the guitar playing, but such complexity can make lyric/vocal making more difficult. Anyway I am unsure about that as I have very little experience. So the best idea would be to try adding some lyrics/vocals to one of Your song just to check how easy/hard it is. If it will work, than valuable knowledge for the future will be Yours;)

That's my opinion, too. Sounds great, but it could be a real challenge to do some vocals on that. Nontheless, very good work and I really liked the drums! smile.gif

Thanks smile.gif But yes.. i'm aware of the vocal problem. For some reason i dont take vocals into consideration at all when i'm recording. Probably because i have no clue how to do or write vocals/lyrics smile.gif
Looks like I have to convince audiopaal to attempt to sing smile.gif
