So I've been playing for about a year now...and have really taken a liking to playing semi-fast. So I was messing around the other day and came up with this. It's very short as of right now, but I haven't had much time to work on it. Please let me know what you think..honest opinions...don't be too harsh cuz it's the first thing I've ever wrote. :)

it was pretty basic...maybe you need some other instruments in there. bar 4 sounds alot like master of puppets...you listen to metallica?

I do, but rarely, after i made it up i realized it did sound like that one riff from master of puppets....but that particular riff is played different, and mine is easier to play. Plus, I made mine up so, since it wasn't taken from that song or anything, I'm going to keep it. What about tips for making a drum track for it? What about a bass line(I don't know much music theory, I'm trying to learn it, but as of right now, I just play my little guitar).

It's a good start to a song, but definetly you need to add more to it.

And what site to you go to that lets you host your files as downloadable .zip files?

alright...added more to the guitar...and added a simple bass line...nothing impressive(actually...nothing about this song is since its my first attempt) something sounds wrong with the bass to me...what do you think?

its nearly impossible to hear the bass. if i were you i would have the bass play the same thing as the guitar..

so maybe turn the guitar track down and have the bass mirror the guitar? or change the bass from maybe dadg to eadg?
