View Full Version : Pop-punk song. (did i nick it?) [PTB]

Hey, this is a completed pop-punk style song, currently with no lyrics or vocal melody.

While I wrote it myself, the intro/chorus riff sounds familiar...it didn't when i first wrote it, but it does now. Did I accidentally nick it off blink 182 or something? Bearing in mind the only song I know off blink on guitar is all the small things, so it wasn't a muscle memory thing.

It's entirely in the D major scale, so that might be it.

Anyway, thanks in advance for crit.

I dont think you've directly ripped off any blink 182, i haveall the albums and dont recal anything exactly like this.
Its just most pop punk sounds very samey after a while but ya should be good with this.

Yeah me too...I was messin around with the D major scale, found that riff then based the song round it, so yeah my favourite too.

Thanks for the crit.

Hoping to get the vocalist in my (planned) band to put some vocals over it, should be good :) . Getting some recording stuff tomorrow, so you never know I might record the whole thing and have it up on UG by next week.

I like it. The intro riff is the best part in my opinion. It would sound better with drums and vocals so when/if you get around to recording it, I would like to hear it.

I give it an 8/10
