Kinda got the idea for this from DT's "Breaking all Illusions". First attempt at proggy stuff, so don't be too harsh if it makes your ears bleed
And I kind of have writer's block as to what to put after this, so any suggestions will be gratefully accepted.
This is supposed to be part 2 of a 4 part song about a king who lost his kingdom. Im thinking of a big instrumental section which moves into a softer Porcupine Tree style verse section, but cant quite figure out what to transition this bit into.

Not sure the melody/harmony is my kinda thing. Dont mind it, but its just not interesting in that respect. The odd rhythms flow well, but they feel a little OTT. The riff style kind of feels like Jim Matheos from Fates Warning/OSI, which could be interesting if developed further with more interesting melodic content.

It was a first attempt, so kinda not surprised you found it a bit odd and what's OTT?

I'll try changing some stuff around, I've never tried writing in odd timings or trying to create progression before, gonna be some time before I get used to it.....

Thanks for taking the time out to listen man

OTT = over the top. There's an awful lot of changes in a short time, and none of them are very consistent.

Idea for a progression:

I thought the time signatures were inconsistent and they were done just to be clever. If they flowed better it would be a nice idea. but for now, I'm out.

It was an attempt at making a sort of slightly choppy flow, but guess it didnt work out well
