Hey Everyone!

I just recorded an interpretation of the great theme song from Terminator 2 by Brad Fiedel. I would love to share it with you guys and get some C4C about the mix, playing, writing, whatever you think!

Thanks guys and i look forward to hearing your stuff!

cados,
I don't have headphones on me right now, and I had to keep the volume down, but it sounded good to me. Playing seemed good, but I didn't play it as loud as I wanted to. Part of me felt like it needed vocals, but if this is a theme song, I can understand why you don't want vocals. Good work. Please review my music at this link:

I've actually written an acoustic version of the terminator theme and enterprisingly yours is similar to it but yours is better. Grats

Nice interpretation dude... Pretty clean playing too! And thats some sweet Ovation guitar you have as well Also checked out your Tommy Emanuel cover, pretty good cover of that also!

Nice job.

C4C? Might not be your cup of tea but anyways..

Saw this and had to post! My friend's old band (wherein the other guitarist kicked him out because he was arguing with his girlfriend -_- ) would always do this brutal headbanging version of the T2 theme at the end of one of their last song at a show.

This is kinda the opposite of that as it's orchestral and uplifting, as opposed to "everybody here is about to die horribly". I have noting to critique because it seemed perfect

C4C if you don't mind some thrash/sludge/death metal Would be nice to see what a prog/classic rocker thinks

Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

Writing as I listen. Love your theme. I was expecting this to be something like the Austrian death Machine terminator theme cover. But I was proven wrong :P. The distorted tone at 1:07 is okay. I'm not feeling the drums though. Especially the drum part at 1:07 sounds very non drummerish or something, I can't really pinpoint why. The part at 1:56 is cool. Gave me a rather Dream Theater-ish vibe. Especially at 2:15 when you enter that synthesizer. At 2:30 there's more Dream Theater. I think you should work on your drum programming skills because they are far behind from your compositional and guitar playing skills. The song's giving a really cool Dream Theater vibe. I really like what you did with the song. The acoustic guitar sound is very good, loved it. The drum sound is a bit meh though.

In general it was cool, but there's a lot for you to improve on in the drum department. Then again you're probably more a guitarist then a drummer so this is not really the place to be judgemental about that.

If you don't mind something a little heavier, check out my song:

Awesome job man! Great interpretation! The only crit i have would be to level the background instruments (the non guitar parts) only slightly lower because they barely, but a bit noticeably, are slightly louder than the guitars.(weird sentence). Great job though, beatiful guitars you got there too!

c4c if you have the time

Penguin Panic - Thank you for all your kind words as well as your criticisms! I appreciate that you liked the songwriting approach and the arrangement and I will be the first to admit that I have some deficiencies in the drum programming department. Unfortunately, the drum programming has always seemed to become secondary to everything else in the song and I really need to take some time and really work on coming up with more realistic drum sections and mixes. What would do with the drum mix for this style of a song? I'm using Addictive Drums. I will post about your song in your thread. Thank you again! P.S. the acoustic guitar is mirrored with an acoustic piano so that gave it a secret tone boost, but dont tell anyone!

Link55588 - Thank you for the compliments! I love those guitars and I sold my other electric guitars after I got this Carvin, I love it! I will post in your thread about your song! Thank you!
