Using the last drum track I had, I recorded this song. it has some mistakes in it, and I plan on going through it and fixing them, I just wanted to know what ya'll thought of it, every girl I've shown it to said they liked it, its supposed to be a kinda romantic song. What can I improve on?

I liked it. The chord progression definitely does set up a romantic mood. Your lead playing was good and there was some nice melodies in there. My main complaint is that it gets a little repetitive. Either cut the length of the song or add some vocals. An instrumental is cool if that's what your going for but understand that to a general audience it will get boring after awhile. So maybe add some vocals? I think this song would be awesome with lyrics and then maybe a couple of epic guitar solos.

Also, just a minor issue but it sounds like you don't hit some of the bends. Make sure you stay in tune when you bend.

Good job though, I liked it. And thanks for critting mine.

^ Basically, I can't add nothing more to what the guy above me said. It's a nice song, though I think you should work on your lead tone a bit (and there was indeed some tuning issue with the lead guitar). I do like the tasteful drums though
Overall: keep it up and I'm sure you'll improve

That pretty much sums it up... Only complaints are your vibrato and bending and well yes, tone.

Also... the beginning seems a little too slow because of the low volume. Maybe add some compression to that to get notes to ring out?

Yeah, I think its just my guitar, I've never been any good at lead on my Squier, the neck is too thin, and the higher strings just dont sound right during leads, never has. Its more of a rythem styled guitar. Or it might just be the Drop C standard tuning messing me up. lol idk.

But thanks guys for your crits, everyone of 'em helps. I'll get to criten.

that was nice. i like at 43ish when the heavy type guitar comes in. great playing, and the recording quality was good. not much else to say. it could use lyrics, or else be around 330 or so. i liked it though. good job man. you have some good tone. very deep/ritch. good stuff.
