Hi all...

I've been working on a chord progression, and suddenly it took a hold of me, and i've been thinking about it and working on it ever since.. It's soo much fun making music..

As i have no-one around me to share my artistic creation, I could really use some input from all of you..

This is my first try to make something "real", but please comment on everything..

whats bad, whats good, what could be better, what should be removed etc..

i had an improvised solo on it at first, but then tonight i just laid down a picking pattern all over the track.. i am not sure whether this should actually be the vocals or the actual solo (although if solo just make do it once, and not clutter the whole track)

no idea.. so please.. comment comment comment.. is it possible to make this into a "real" song?? rolleyes.gif

Here it is. please have a listen..

also same progression but with improvised solo (this was made first, and i dont really like the solo except from around 0:35 -> 0:45)

Thanks in advance

Reminds me of one of pedja's collab's biggrin.gif It's cool... of course you could develop it into a real song!

Reminds me of the melody and arrangement from Moonlight shadow (Mike Oldfield?) for some reason, the vibe is also very reminiscent of British Band The Coral.

I think both takes had a nice vibe, if you use the first as a melody motif, add some lyrics and build on your solo style that you didnt like it would be a nice little song, if a little tame for my liking!

Your soloing reminded me very much of some of John Frusciante's work, no bad thing!

actually, that is also one of the things i've been thinking about.. it being a bit too tame.. whenever i try and create new stuff, i seem to be stuck in this kind of music.. you have any suggestions on how to break out and make it a bit more rock & roll like?

quite an impressive comparison.. means a lot.. thank you..
