It sounded pretty good. Get a backing track in there because it got kind of boring just listening to the leads

Not bad. But, I agree with ouchies. It does get a tad bit boring listening to just leads. Try adding a backing track. Even if it's just some bar chords or even powerchords. Other than that. Pretty good. Crit mine if you get a chance? Links are in my sig.

SOunds much better now that it has a backing track. Only problem is, in measures 2 and 3 (and a couple others which I don't feel like going back to re-state) The leads clash with the chords and it sounds a little dissonant. Other than that, good stuff.

It sounds nice. I think thought that the backing is a bit too overpowering. The volume needs lowering on it. But other than that, a fine effort.
7/10

Something you might want to think about is using triplet eighth notes instead of sixteenths. It will go better with the swing feel and not sound so rhythmically off where you have sixteenths.

Other than that, I liked some of the harmonies you have. Nice jazz sound (sounds a bit off with the distortion, though.) If you wanted a bit more of a blues sound, you could make all of your backing chords 7 chords (like C7, G7 and F7) and make the backing guitar sound a jazz guitar.

Overall, nice work. Care to crit my latest? Link is in my sig.

More bluesy than jazz IMO. Not bad, the rhythm is kind of boring but the leads are pretty good. 6.5/10

Ok, this was just strange.
The length of the notes where strange, the rhythem was strange.

Maybe just not my kind of music, i dont know, strange.

First I must say why are you playing minor pentatonics over major chords? (The Cmajor and Gmajor)

Sounded slightly off to me.

Nice leads, but it sounds very, very cluttered and dissonant with the minor pentatonics over the overdriven guitar playing open major chords. I think you could simplify the chords, or just play them on a clean electric, and it would sound much better.

Well, the new updated version is pretty good. I really like the newest parts. But, I do agree with a few people who've critted before me, the minor pentatonic over major chords does clash, and that's what's causing the unwanted dissonance. But, still a pretty decent peice, nonetheless. 7/10

it's called a swing feel

Having both the lead and and the rhythm heavily swung makes it sound garish or something. I'd make the rhythm into triplets or else quarter notes.

Oh yeah and you should have some parts which sound nice but let the beat drop some. Like beavis and butthead said "the lame parts are there to make the cool parts better."

Very catchy blues song, I think. Good use of innovation. Can't wait until it's finish.

Add a good bass line to it, please. It's needs the bass. It's calling for it!

You dont need Guitar Pro to add a bass line.
Just use the bass transcription.
Its usualy the 4th button to the left from the "play from start button".

It didn't flow, too many times the rhythm guitar held a chord and a lead lick was played, they seemed kinda cliche and outa place. I thought the outro didn't flow well and seemed like more of a breakdown or bridge than an outro. And generaly, but not always, don't use 16th or 32nd notes that aren't in triplets with a swing feel. They don't synch up and seem off time. Its a good start, and some of the licks are good but you might want to make the rhythm more standard, like 12 bar blues or some "format"

nice, my only suggestion is to revise bars 1-7 of the lead guitar, it's not up to par with the rest of the soloing (its not entirely in key it sounded like). other than that, it sounds great.

I actually like the tempo, some of the trill sections seemed a little out of place but that's not really for me to criticize, just what I would have changed. Seems like you're getting onto a poppier version of (what the last guy said) a Gn'R ballad.
