Even though i've been lately into upbeat songs i really like this, it's a depressing song. I'll wait until the right girl deserves it or something. I played it on acoustic. Full crits are welcome (and wanted) I will return as possible, leave link please!


Legend:
/ = slide down
\ = slide up
h = hammer on
p = pull off
~ = let ring
. = bend up
, = bend down

Q = Quarter Notes
W = Whole Notes
H = Half Notes

The introduction riff is good, sounds like a riff i wrote a while ago, just more expanded. But the chord riff, i would suggest a progresstion that uses more minor chords if u want to make it sound depressing

Okay, i'm gonna throw out those stupid bar chords anyways, hit up some more minors.

I like the riff, but the chords are awful, except for the first one.

sounds nice... i'm not too sure about that tri-tone ( the third fret a string to fourth fret d string) at the end of the intro, but maybe that's just me.

The intro is similar to Joe Satriani's "I believe". Same notes and stuff, just a different order to them.

Like others here have said, the riff is kinda nice, but the chords thrown in at the end could use some work.

That reminds me of a song I wrote. Here's part of it:

The first half of the verse is all 8th notes. The second half of the verse is strummed to a rhythm similar to the chorus. The last chord of the verse isn't held out so that there's a break between verse and chorus. The chorus is strum to this rhythm: 1 & 2 &a e& 4 &a. Let me know what you think.

I hate all of you emo kids. Tabbing was created by god for something played so fast you can't diffrentiate the notes from each other. Go cut yourselves or what ever you emo kids do.

Agreed with everyone else here.
Good first part, chords should be fixed a bit.

How the hell am I supposed to know how to make my "sig" look right? I don't spend too much time working on that crap, it's all about the time spent on the guitar.
