some effects on your softer guitar sounds.
you don't look that old how long you been playing for?
your using reaper as well? it's a good free program found out about it this year along with a load of other stuff. you write the drums in GP5? open up the midi editor on reaper on your drum track and humanize the notes i started to do that and it makes a big difference.

this is one of my latest songs no loops all hand written in GP5 apart from guitars and the piano.
cheers, keep up the good work.

Its definitely a very unique sound, but i like it. It reminded me a bit of the FX that "The Edge" from U2 uses. I would be very interested in hearing how this could play in to a song if there were other means of odd percussion involved (pots and pans ect)

its pretty cool man, I like the nice effects, pretty soothing. I especially like that awkward sliding guitar for some reason...pretty good overall...although I didn't feel it developed too much into something, but I guess that is just my compositional opinion
