ok, I guess I can ask for some help here too now

So I wrote this song a few weeks ago and I thought it was great when I started it, but now, I'm stuck and it doesn't to be that good anymore. Basically I need help with the guitar solo. The first solo is kinda meh to me. The tapping and legato sounds a bit too forced and I wrote that whole solo pretty fast. The second part seems to be out of key but I can't write anythign better.
I'm pretty content with the last solo, the only problem is just that I don't know how to continue it. The first half of the last bar sounds awesome, but I'm not sure about the second part f that bar, you can rewrite it if you like. Basically I think sliding down to a F# sounds kinda lame. I treid a few notes but nothing seems to fit, any ideas are greatly appreciated.
The song is intented for RSE, intro wont really work with midi but I included a gp4 mix anyway.

Any help will be returned

Hmm, I'm trying some stuff out but I'm not too sure what I'll be able to manage.

Edit - I'm not sure this is any good honestly, but it might give you some ideas

Hey thanks man, really dig that second solo. I usually fail at writing strange/dissonant things like that, gotta get some ideas from that.

Want some ideas for a song?

This is what this thread is about. Basically, I have made this thread for people that are stuck in their songs and need someone to help them out. For example, some people can't write drum parts for their life, so you can ask someone in this thread if they could help you or write drum parts for your song (optional).

Steps to follow!
1. Write down the problem or specific help needed.
2. Attach the GP file
3. Done.

NOTE: Make sure to thank the person who helped you and the people that attempted to help out.


NOTE 2: This thread is not for critiquing pieces.



What's a GP file??

I'm new at the song writing process. I have a ton of riffs that could use improvement possibly? I need some feedback on how I can improve these drum tracks here and maybe some ideas or patterns for fill ideas.

Got that?









Any rhythmic ideas appreciated.

Just google/youtube Guitar pro, I only write drum tracks with that program. cba to get another program, even if there are better ones out there.

also, the quility of the video si too bad, I can't really hear anything.

No actually, I use TUX. There hasn't been an update for the RSE, at least that I know of.
I want something very danceable and groovy.
Although it is implied, I will give you hand with a project of yours. Just as long as it doesn't have anything to do with percussion.

Dou you also want drums for the calmer intro?
and, do you mind if I add some bass?

Good idea for a thread!

I came up with this the other day, not sure what to do for a chorus though. Any ideas are appreciated. Ignore the vocal track, that's not anything special at this moment in time.

@ hueves

you really got some mad strcuturing there, tt's difficult to write drums for that.
I don't even know how you can write a full song without drums, it kinda guarantees that your strucutre is messed up at some point.

but anyway, take a look at what I've tabbed out this far.

I really liked the song though, especiallythe intro/verse part.

@Carl6661
I'll take a look at that now

edit: just a quick draft, nothing special but it could give you some ideas.

I was wondering if anyone could make me a PG file with like drum patterns for me to get an idea of how different drum pieces are like, so that eventually I can create my own.


I'm also wondering to know all the different types of hardcore/punk beats are. If you can make a GP file for me that would be awesome of you. Maybe you can show me some basics of creating different fills and knowing exactly where in a bar or measure they are suppose to be places, etc. Same with cymbals too.

I mainly write riffs comparable to metal, deathmetal, and hardcore so help would be greatly appreciated.

i guess with just normal midi sounds. i can't really figure out the RSE thing. I actually just got the program yesterday, so I am almost clueless with using it. when i first used it i could use my keyboard and enter the notes, etc. with it, but now it won't read my keyboard. i am very confused.

I really liked what you did with the pre-chorus. That helped significantly in the direction I wanted to pursue.

I usually never write the drums until I have the song completed. Maybe I should alter that...

I'll take a look on it tomorrow after school

do you mind checking out this song I started yesterday?
Just started writing that solo, the first 2 bars sound good but the rest of it is rather meh.
I just don't feel like I could write metal solos at all.

I'll upload a RSE recording on my profile in a few mins since this song is nonsense without RSE drums.

also, it should be some kind of groove metal, inspired by testaments stuff on the 1994's album Low, and some songs of Thin Lizzy.

I love me some Testament; easily my favorite 80's thrash group, aside from Megadeth.
Here ya go.
Went with a more Friedman style, and some of Alex's jazz inflections.
Tell me what you think of it.
