This is the first time I have ever wrote a song. I have tried many times and could never even get something to sound halfway right. I have no idea at all where these lyrics came from. Just for it to be my first song, I am happy. I could never even get a full verse written before.

For now... its my First Random Song... or... "Come Back Home"

As you can tell.. this isn't professional quality.. and somewhat abstract(the song).

I really appreciate it! I have had an overwhelming number of responses to this. Not only on this forum, but by people here locally. Everybody seems to think that it is really good, so I will go with that. I guess whenever any of us create our own music, we seem to be a lot harder on ourselves than everyone else.. so I didn't expect the great comments. =D

I added a cover of a John Mayer song. I didn't really do much with spicing it up or anything.. just the acoustic and me... with some messups at the end, which I don't have down yet (learned it yesterday). Please critique if you may.. mostly the voice. Its a quiet song.. sort of like the title. =D

Your style is really outside of what I listen to, but in the guitar program I'm in at my college we focus on lots of different styles. One of the biggest thing my teacher hammers home is chord voicing, and I really like yours.

One suggestion, is lower the volume on the lead slightly. Let it kind of float through your vocals a little more at first. I really like what you played, but it overpowered the vocals which I also liked. If the lead was a little less in your face volume wise(which is weird for me to say...metal) I would have loved the way the vocal melody and the lead played together.

Great song.

I liked it a lot - I can't fault the song, some great ideas in there and a nice acoustic style. With a little more care on the recording and production side it could go far!

Been a while since I have been on here.. but thanks again for the comments.

Yeah I agree on the production of it and the lead guitar volume. I won't be able to improve sound quality much more until I get better gear. I can turn the lead volume down though, except I don't have the internet at home anymore. lol
