I decided to make a decent recording... Now, although I love the intro and second part of this, I'm not sure about the last... Maybe I shouldn't have put the drum fill? Or change the whole riff (which is a modified Gamma Ray riff). Do you think it would work if I put an outro in the concept of the intro?

Midnight Jam

I don't know, I've listened to it many times and I'm completely baffled... Plus I didn't plan how to construct the track, it's completely "make along the way" or something...

Erm, the intro goes on forever.... you need to change it or add something. The second riff is fairly dull too. I assume there will be vocals or a lead line to go over the top? The drums are generally dull and lifeless, and the fill is a bit pointless.

I think it's a good start. You've got a few riffs to work with. Keep going dude.

Like seemeel said, the intro does go on a bit too long. I suggest a lead or intro solo coming in over top of the intro you have right now on the 4th time through or so. I think the riff that follows is good for a song with vocals, I can definitely hear a vocal line on top of it, or even a lead line as seemeel also suggested.

Overall though, I think its a great start that needs a few improvements. A lead guitar or vocals and also I think that if you had the drums going double-time over the riff after the intro it would sound a lot better. Good work so far though man.

Thank you both for the suggestions... Nope, it's purely instrumental. I just record for me and I can only play the guitar... And yes, you're right. The intro is too long. I'll just play the riffs a couple of times and/or maybe add a second lead guitar as you said. Drums will take a loooot of my time since I don't know much about editing so I just left it as a metronome

Thanks a lot guys, I'll definitely work on your advice

Don't worry, everything's fixed now. I didn't like it either, I reduced it to one "cycle" and added some melody.

Although the song's structure is reaaaally simple Intro>Main Riff>Chorus>Main Riff>Outro, I think it serves the purpose. At least it works for me.

Now, I arranged the drums according to my taste, I think it's pretty good.

Two things that I would change. Rhythm guitars: finger noise. It's really annoying at some points and destroys some of the feeling. Better control next time. Lead guitar: it falters here and there, I think I didn't mute properly.

All in all, it's my first recording, I'm really proud of it and myself, had lots of help regarding lead guitar sound from a friend of mine... hope you think it's good too.
