Hello! smile.gif
I want to share with you with my current project. It’s in the style of some famous polish band. :>

Please tell me, what do you think about it?
Do you have any suggestions what to do after this, what is recorded? Maybe some kind of guitar solo? I’m stuck at the moment. biggrin.gif

Looking forward to receive feedback from you, because, as I said earlier, I’m stuck. biggrin.gif

Mate smile.gif I like it and I also think the mix sounds very good! If you were to ask me, I'd add some guitar melodies, nothing too much really and I'd come up with a strong vocal line to finish the song.

Hi mate, these sections sound killer! The riffs, the rhythms, the arrangements are fantastic. I think that maybe you are a bit stuck there because it's time to start thinking on structure and vocals (or at least melodies if this is going to be an instrumental song). If you start thinking on melodies and also writing some lyrics, the story will guide you with the overall composition. By the way you are doing a great job!

Sounds brilliant, really enjoyed that !

It depends what you feel like doing with the song. If it's going to be guitar orientated, like an instrumental guitar track then guitar melodies, as the guys said.

If you're thinking of a song, then just keep thinking of structure. Verse/bridge/chorus things like that. So you might ant more riffs and even a key change ? You'll also want a solo section, so that could either be a new set of chords entirely or it could take place over a previously used riff. If you're going to solo over a riff that's already occurred (like a verse riff) I find that it seems to be most effective if you come to it after having a section that was completely new. It makes the return to the verse riff+solo even more impressive that way.

I tend not to plan ahead when writing songs. I just keep playing riffs, cycling them.. then I'll get another idea (usually in my head) and I'll just follow them through naturally and sometimes a new riff will pop out accidentally which takes it in a completely new direction, like maybe changing time signature.

Thanks! smile.gif

I think of it as a normal song (so I call certain riffs 'verse', 'chorus' etc ). I hope that I'll post newer version soon. smile.gif
