I decided to try and write a song. I've got the intro down so far with a lead and rhythm guitar I was looking for some comments and advice for the future and where to head with thing song. I've never written before and all I really know is to write in key and obviously the techniques I learned through my playing.

Welcome fellow newbie!

Its not bad as a first attempt. Very melodic, very smooth. My suggestion would be to make it faster. Change everything to eighth and sixteenth notes. Then add a rythm riff for your lead. Btw for a first try that was a pretty decent lead riff. Youll probably write some pretty sick solos some day.

For its overall quality as a first try Ill give it a 6/10.

Since I critiqued yours, how about taking a look at mine?
