im in the middle of writing my first fingerstyle song. im planning on having a whole band with it, so its not the traditional classical type. but anyway, i recorded what ive written so far. if anyone could give me any feedback on it, that would be amazing (songs on my profile)

i played it pretty shitty its not so easy.. so dont hate. haha.

Michael,

I like the tone a lot, and I like how the melody relates to the harmony it just sounds awesome. The only real suggestion I have is to create a contrasting part. I like what you have, but it would be enhanced if you went to a part with either less syncopation, or maybe even a modulation, let your creativity flow and remember that an awesome melody/riff/chord progression can often times be made more awesome by contrasting material around it.

thanks a lot! you just made my night. haha
yeah im kinda working on a mood change. a modulation would be pretty hard though because im using a capo, and most of the neck is gone because of it. heh. but i definitely get what youre saying.

thanks so much.

It sounds like it would make a great opening to something else in the state that its in. I can kinda hear a drum section right after where you end, leading into a full song. It sounds cool in my head, lol. You've done a great job, though there are some places where you are kinda rough and the parts are a bit sketchy.

Wanna take a listen to my thing?
