The guitar tone sounds pretty good on the lower register and on the cleaner parts- when you play higher notes during the distorted main riff, it gets a little thin and trebley. Rolling back the highs...

Thanks for the crit. I hadn't planned on doing it full band, but that could definitely work.

Unless you're writing avant garde atonal jazz freakouts, which you're probably not, pretty much every song you write will use established theory, whether you know it or not. Actually learning theory,...

Memoirs of a Broken Heart- This is good, nice use of a chill, Jack Johnson vibe. The guitar starts to get repetitive but you break it up with some different rhythms and chord changes, and it works. I...

The guitar on this was nice- it's a pretty basic progression, but you do enough cool things rhythmically and melodically that it stays interesting. The vocals were quite good overall- there were some...

Sounds pretty good, man- a little poppy for my taste, but for what it is it's a really solid song. Vocals and guitars sound pretty professional, nice harmonies. Good use of keyboards. The drums...

Park Street- Folk Rock, c4c

This is a short cut that I based around some lyrics I'd written a while ago and didn't know what to do with. Not much in the way of guitar heroics here, but any criticism on the songwriting, vocals,...

This sounds pretty great. Cool opening section, sort of Iron Maidenesque. Your tone on the main guitar part is great, really thick and a very saturated sound on the lead licks. The tone is what...

Thanks for the crit. It definitely takes a while to build up, and that's because it's a film score- I had to adjust the structure a bit to fit the film, and it needed a long intro. I'll get to yours...

As others have mentioned, the drum track on the circle is pretty annoying. The guitars sound pretty good, the lead part that comes in around 1:00 is solid, and the solo is definitely cool. Thick...

Labyrinth, C4C

This is a song I wrote and recorded with a couple of friends for a school project. It's the backing for a short film we made, I played the guitars and they did the vocal harmonies/beatboxing stuff....

Lifeboats- indie folk, c4c

Hey, I was testing out my new mic and recorded this. It's more lyrically and vocally focused than guitar centered, but any criticism is welcome. Crit for Crit.

The writing is pretty good- some cliches (night into day, to cheer me up when all else was gone), but generally a decent flow and word choice. I like justification for reasonless reason.

Daybreak

The first rays of radiation slice through folds of lead,
But I refuse to give the day it's stead.
I languish in my artificial night-time,
Where comfort comes so soon, and
The only the only...

Anyone in the lower tier want to challenge me? I've never done a 1vs1 before, so I guess I'll play for 2 points.

a lack of judgment, like laughter at a wake,
a stylized remembrance of things better left unwritten.
