Added a bridge section, and improvised two solos with some string stuff near the end.

At around 3:18, I did have a tremolo lead guitar doubling up with the strings, but it clashed too much, so any help with that would be great.

You can actually hear the bass guitar now..sometimes >.>

Probably overdid the octaver effect too much tongue.gif

Some bits are still sloppy, but im working on it.

This one sounds better to me. There are much better people to give advice on technique an composition, but I really like this tune. What are you useing for the strings?

Hi mate, this piece is becoming something really cool. My only suggestion is to work a bit more on the mix (drums should be louder, strings quieter, and bass more audible) and also edit everything (mostly strings) to sound tighter.
Is this going to be an instrumental piece? or vocals are coming?

WOW! Socky you freakin RAWK man! If you are up for it, join my DIVINUS MORTUS project!!!!

I"m digging your tune here bud, one thing I did notice, (just personal taste really ) the keyboard parts may be a bit loud during the first half of the song. Are you going for synthetic, obviously keyboard, bits, or are you wanting it to actually sound mor like an orchestra/string bit?

It's just going to be instrumental. Thanks for the feedback man.

Not really sure yet, but i'll probably go for a more synthetic feel. Still writing, so these are just some basic mixes.
