The title is just about the only way I can think of to describe it.... this piece is very laid back, both guitars are clean, and it has a happier feel to it. Be honest, be harsh, and most of all, be constructive. Rip it to pieces.

this sounds cool dude. you should add a soloThat's what I was thinking, but being that I'm a bassist and a drummer, with little guitar experience, that will either take me quite a while, or I'll have a bandmate do it.

I thought you might not be much of a guitarist, the guitar lines are like a lot of the bass lines guitarists write on here...to be honest boring. Guitar 1 starting at bar 17 for example, especially without any bass behind it.
This is coming from a guitarist, but straight eighth notes for 18 bars or whatever will be better than counting sheep at putting your guitarist to sleep. Instead of having them as single notes I would at least add in the major third to make then diads, and make the rhythm more interesting with some muting and maybe some staccato and triplets.

interesting to note that you arent much of a guitarist, but that doesnt excuse you much for putting the guitarist in the track to sleep
i think with a little better rhythm effort, and this song can go miles but as it is right now,
1. Intro Bass riff is good. i would use 42's or 44's on the drums for the part but thats me
2. Verse riff, not that good but if you can get a nice vocal line, even that wont sound so boring
3. Pre-chorus should have had the guitars strumming once on every bar rather than justo n 1 bar
4. Chorus is fine
5. Interlude is okay, here you can even add a solo to make things interesting
After this, its the same thing so, well, you get the idea :)

^Still waiting on a GP4 file so I can C4C.
I've added in bass to verse 2, I'm still trying to think of some changes to make things less boring.

mate, i already uploaded a gp4, check lower posts :)

the bad thing about this is that it reminds me Californication too much, IMO you should use other bass notes or structure, just my 2 cents :) but its a good tune :)

The first thing i though: CALIFORNICATION!!!
You gotta change that up a little, dude.
But else, the drums were cool, the bass were okay, nothing special. The guitar part howewer, you're bandmate gotta fix that dude, because you don't seem to have much knowledge about the guitar. But the song has some kind of potential if you fix the issues i mentioned.
Edit: You're chorus and prechorus is kinda good man, maybe use some distorted guitar or something on it?
