So I've decided to add an instrumental to my Folk Metal projects Demo/EP/whatever you wanna call it.

This is just the beginning of it so far, but I'd like some feedback (mainly on the acoustic intro) at this stage.. (it can't hurt, right?)

So yeah, just let me know what you think of it so far, and yes, I'm aware its just that one riff variation so far, so no need to point out it repeats

Comin' straight outta Finland!
Crazy motherfucker named sam b
He writes music that will kick your ass, pansy!
He writes that sick shit
With the sick riffs
Now I think it's time to eat a biscuit!

Nah, but really, that's some awesome stuff right there. Great folk feel to it, sounds authentic. The acoustic intro is really cool, especially with the use of the Taiko drums. Never tried that before... maybe I will now

It's definitely a catchy riff, and the drums are great too. I liked the shift to the higher key. Pulled off nicely. Good use of keyboards as well.

There isn't really much to crit, since you're still working on it, but give me a shout when it's done.

I've been working too: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?p=18997802#post18997802

You've got a great start to a song here and I would love to hear more. So many places you could take that riff/melody. Really want to hear what you do with it.

Great job!!

Mind returning a crit?

Really good so far. Can't wait to see how it turns out. That's a great riff, and i hope you can take it somewhere special.

Mind checking out one of mine in my sig? Just pick whichever one tickles your fancy, although out of all of them (i've posted here) i like the one labeled folk metal most.
