Hi, i've been playing guitar for 2 - 2.5 years now I believe. I am 15 years old.

This is a piece i wrote recently, I based it around (as the title shows!) winter, the cold and glum.


It is very simple but, yanno! haha

I'll happily take all criticism, as long as it's constructive!

Loved the start. I think as a whole, it would sound magnificent with a tasteful solo over.

The more melodic part (00:28), while a nice change of style, didn´t feel "convincing" - might be down to the playing, not sure.

The tremolo-bend at 00:46 felt quite awkward, no offence Done a bit more carefully it could be nice. I liked the one at the end better.

The flanger effect (or whatever it was) was interesting, didn´t fit in to 100% imo, but definitely added something.

The ritardando/slowing down towards the end was a bit too drastic and felt a bit awkward in my opinion, I´d use it more in moderation.

Hope I didn´t come off sounding harsh, I think you got some great stuff in there, but the execution could be a bit better.

Again, I´d love to see a lead part over this, might not be where you wanna go with it though!

Critique back?

EDIT: clarified a thingy
Thanks alot, you defo didn't sound harsh, and even if so It's help!

I agree with with the tremolo bend ahah! and i defo will take the rest of the advice!
