Hey guys, first is the first tab ive posted to this forum, as well as my bands first song we've written together. Personally i think its a bit generic, but its our first song, so hopefully we'll be able to get out some better stuff in the future. But anyway, any feedback i could get on it right now would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

The riffs are very cool, but without any melody over the top of them, they become very stagnate and repetitive, i don't know if there supposed to be a singer over this but that would defiantly do the job.

I get interested again when the solo's kick in, maybe some more exciting rhythms underneath them, to keep our heads moving when this is all going down?

But over all, with vocals or another melodic instrument, i'd really dig this, reminds me of some 'scar symmetry'.

Toodles!

Any chance you'll upload it as GP5 for those who didn't get 6 yet?


Nope, I already went on song posted in .gpx and the original poster claims that there is no "export to .gp5 function", but instead you get .pdf, .wav ASCII etc. If possible, can you upload it in midi format? Or if you don't mind the trouble, I found this tutorial on how to convert .gpx to .gp5. Crafty bastards trying to force us to upgrade, GP5 forever!

Well the mix is kinda terrible, guess that's because of the conversion.

But other than that, I really liked it. It was really fun and catchy, Riff 1B was awesome.

It's rather generic, but that's not always a bad thing.

What's the point of all that silence in the end?

Hey. I'm Mr. "Other Guitarist".
The silence was there because I was gonna make it fade into another riff in the early stages of writing the song, but I scrapped that.
I like the idea of adding some melody. I've only used keyboard during the chorus riff and one verse riff, so perhaps I should dig into writing some Dark Tranquillity inspired keyboard melodies? Thanks for the feedback guys. We appreciate it.
