So I have been consumed with this melody for days and nights.
Trying to get the notes together..I havent been able to practise or anyting (sorry Gab). I have only had this in mind!
Strange indeed..
There are of course still work to do, especially with sound and Timing and a smoother way to play.

I call this: No time to cry

But here is a taste of it anyhow.
Please point out mistakes and please give me suggestions. I¨'ll be more than happy

sorry?? why mate! I'm proud of you! You are creating. It's happening! smile.gif This feeling of a melody all the time in your head asking for being decrypted is your own personality creating music. That's what we are looking for mate, so well done!

There are no mistakes to mark when this happens, just keep on polishing and decrypting the idea. smile.gif

Mate, you were always complaining that you are not good enough smile.gif Nothing more wrong tongue.gif I think you have done an amazing job here - melody and good direction and a very articulated and emotive style! Good going!

I think that you should write more music and share it with us some more even smile.gif Also, I am thinking you might have more recorded, right? smile.gif If so, why not share it here if you want and we can help out with suggestions to help you polish the final product wink.gif

Thx a lot Cosmin:) Warming words indeed!!
And yes, I will stop saying I'm not good enough! But I do have much to learn and I dont play clean. Thats what I'm here for, oh yeeeah smile.gif

I would love to share my ideas with u to get some help and some other input biggrin.gif
I will get proper recording gear hopefully this year so I can get song on the ideas to. I only have Cubase LE4, so its very limited:)
And I have more stuff recorded and maybe if I ask nicely someone of u have a drumprogram and can put some cool drumlicks in it and maybe a bassline?
Is it to much to ask?

I'll upload one idea later this week and maybe we can work something with it wink.gif

That was really pretty, and I liked the vibe. My only suggestion is as you refine it, is to think more like a vocalist. In some areas it jumps about a bit like its just going from one guitar riff to another rather than a melodic line.

Maybe when drums and bass etc are put in that will help it flow more but a melodic line helping to connect these elements will ensnare the listener and make them hum it for days

Thx PosterBoy! Yeah, I know what u mean and I try to find a way and try to make a way from A-C and in the middle a nice B-playing wink.gif
But its hard, I usually get the tones in my head and then try to find a nice way to play them. I know some basic in music theory but I really suck at it!
I like what Marcus Lavendell says: If it sounds good, it IS good. And if you like it then there is someone else in the world that like it to smile.gif
But learning theory is a need thing I guess. To know what u doin when u play!
I try to make it smoother. Thx for pointing out. Excellent!

Shall I insert the file here, Cosmin?
And do u want it on SoundCloud or a Wave file?
Its a more hardrock/rock file this one.

Yep, here it is then: http://soundcloud.com/thomas-heino/hardrock-idea

Its 4/4 120 bpm. Hope u can do something about it and that my playing is synced tongue.gif

If its possible with one rhytm from 0.00 -0.20 and another in 0.21 - 0.41 and a third in 0.42 - 0.56
Maybe not exactly but u know what I mean when u hear it wink.gif

Cant say how appreciated this is and I'm looking forward to hear it and that u can show how I can do it myself!

biggrin.gif

Ah, Cosmin! This is soo good biggrin.gif
Its amazing how an idea can grow that much! I actually think this can really be a song now ha ha..
You have done a great job here and I have nothing to complain about. I cant wait for ur idea
on the tapping/rhythm part that is just ahead:)

Does it take long time to learn the program?

Many thanks so far and many thanks for taking ur time and effort on helping me! I'm very grateful!

Hey there man smile.gif Glad you like it wink.gif It's actually very simple to use, but you need to tell me what you are using to record and get virtual instruments to go with that.

EZ Drummer or Superior Drummer would be a good choices here. They are pluggins that help you create drum tracks just like this one. Do you have something like this? If yes, let me know and I'll tell you some more, if not, get it and then I'll tell you some more biggrin.gif
