Alright so this is my first original work that I am proud of and recorded. It's only a quick idea I have of a song. I'm not the best guitarist out there, so it's kinda sloppy, but it was the best take I had of it so far. The bends are off a little, and I meant to put vibrato in a couple of spots too.

The gear I used was a Schecter C-1 Elite and a Line 6 Spider III 75w.

So just tell me what you honestly think and any advice you have. Here is a link to my profile, it is the only song I have up there. Thanks!

The recording quality isn't very good, which kinda ruins the tones. That aside, it's not too bad. The rhythm guitar sounds very disjointed and things get pretty cluttered when the solo starts. In the future I'd double track rhythm guitars and pan hard L/R then leave the center for the solo. The solo has potential, but I think the phrasing at the moment is kinda bland--I'd make it longer and give some of the sections some breathing room. I think that'd give it a much more soulful feel.

Good work tho, keep developing the whole song!
Let's party.

Thanks a lot. When you say double tracking the rhythm and pan hard L/R, do you mean put one rhythm track L and one R then keep the solo in the middle?

butterfingers,
Yeah, the audio quality is not very good, but your rhythm guitar playing is OK. I would do the double-track (pan left & right) thing on the rhythm guitar (yes, keep the lead at or mostly in the middle), & use less distortion. The lead guitar sounds like you faded in & out a random lead guitar part. Keep at it & you'll get better. Please review my music at this link:

I'll agree with the others and suggest double-tracking the rythm guitar (recording the rythm twice, and panning one far to the left and one far to the right). Also, I'd say that for this kind of music, drums feel more/less necessary. On a positive note, the playing itself works pretty well, and the solo isn't bad. It won't stand on it's own as a song, of course, but with expansion (and the aforementioned production stuff), could be pretty good.
