the only bad thing was the ending, (last bar didn't had an ending sensation) and i liked how your arpeggios are different from the ones in the rest of UG and your first solo ddoesn't enter like everyone enters their solos. The second solo was almost epic. About the genre, id say power ballad.

C4C

Great great song.

Love the rhythm guitar, fantastic choice in chord progressions.

Solo guitar for the most part is superb as well, however there were times in the outro solo that I was finding you were hitting some really weird passing notes that I really didn't care for much.

The mixing could use some work too, panning the rhythm and lead guitars off to separate sides would help a lot. Raising the volume for the lead guitar and slightly lowering the volume of the rhythm guitar while leads are playing would also really help, since I often had trouble hearing the leads.

Other than that..... Resolve your song Ending the song on Em is just tense, and annoying.

Either way, seriously good song.

10x a lot
those passing notes was from the Dmin scale , wich i think it can "sometimes" be used while playing in Amin....
are they annoying cuz i really liked them? :S

and u're right, i've never worked on the mixing details...and i'm still not able to end this!!!

ill Crit your newest piece

The strings were kinda repetitive, the whole beginning, but the end was pretty epic. maybe add diversity to the rythme in the beginning. (I know what i mean i have a hardtime expressing myself :S) haha In all Awsome Job Bro

I checked out your song - it's good, really good. I'd rather called it sad heavy-metal ballad. But...there is a BUT - solos, put it in distortion, 'cause acoustic just doesn't work. I do like your solos, sad melodic works great on this one. And one more thing : standart tuning is too weak, drop this song a full step down (DGCFAD) - and it'll be sounding more heavier and...more TRUE
