What does this sound like?

http://soundcloud.com/sound-otl/untitled

My band recorded this short bit of an unfinished song, what do you guys think of it? we couldnt think of any vocals for it, so we just kinda stopped working on it

This made me smile. It sounds great dude! Don't give up on finding a vocal melody, but it's doing fine as an atmospheric instrumental.

This reminded me a lot of Incubus - Wish You Were Here. If you haven't heard that song give that a listen to get some vocal ideas. I've kinda caught a vocal line, but i\ve never been good at putting it onto hard copy or translating it onto a guitar. But yeah i really liked the song, sounds like a beach song to me!

Oh and if you ever recorded this like for reals, have the lead guitar moving to and from each head phone, would be really cool

dude! the guitarist who starts the song off and the bassist are like obsessed with incubus so that is a huge compliment! yeah for some reason we just really struggled putting vocals to this, but if we ever record it we'll make it fancy!

Haha I can definitely hear the lead guitars influence, its got that delay and melodic sound, he reproduces it very well, but with the rhythm it becomes a little different than incubus which is good. I think vocals should incorporate a rap in short bursts yet melodic vocals, with notes that are held for a decent amount of time because the vocalist in incubus has some incredible lungs. What i find helps is listening to the band that you kind of want to replicate, then drink a few beers with your band members and it will just flow. but thats my approach, and others generally do not agree with my approach.

Good shit man.

I'd probably call it ambient rock, or atmospheric rock or something.

I agree with Danielshaw. it definately has potential. If you can do DI's I'll happily mix it with your guidance on how it should sound. I would love to produce something like this, its a lil outta my style but thats the point of mixing at this stage, i want as much practice as possible. For free.
here are some of my best tracks:
http://soundcloud.com/vivalaheerey/...e-funeral-for-a

http://soundcloud.com/vivalaheerey/fade-away

The first one is tasteful mixing but the 2nd is pretty much me trying to get the biggest 'in-your-face' mix possible. Incubus wrote songs for stadiums, and i think you have potential should you nail vocals and lyrics. UK or US?

DI's? Were US! but thanks alot man that is a great compliment! feel free to mix it how ever you want haha. i can only take credit for the rhythm part and the chorus, i guesss atmospheric rock is pretty accurate!

Direct input, so plugging your guitars into the computer to record the clean unamplified signal

Guitar > cable > interface > computer > DAW. I find its the simpliest way to record and mix because you use software to create the guitar tone and your free to modify it whenever you like, but fair dos
