i have about 2 minutes of song written and i cant for the life of me figure out where to take this song... id love some good ideas on a direction for this one. Please excuse the crappy fake sounding programed instruments i used to demo this... hopefully it still gets what im going for so far across. Thanks guys!

Cool. That song is going to sound good with some real, or real sounding, drums and bass on it. Love the sound of that riff in the 25 - 40 sec. area!

I know you didn't put C4C, but if you can, that would be great:
My band's songs.

Going to vote right now. Maybe some fast section added in there?

Thanks.

Man, that's incredible. Are you intending for it to have lyrics or just be instrumental? If just instrumental, you take the part that starts at 0:16 and put it at the end again, but elongate it and solo till your fingers bleed. Or put lyrics over it - I think that small snippet from 0:16 to about 0:21 has a lot of potential.

I could throw together a drum track for you in Guitar Pro if you wanted.

If you get a chance, C4C: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1580447&referrerid=944455

Like the riff in the :30's.

Like the feel at 1:02.

Nice harmonies in the 1:20's.

Needs some vocals - obviously -

Maybe a touch fast tempo, a slight drag at points. Revisit the break at 1:00 to make it a little longer (which part to revisit is often lyric driven)

Would appreciate a listen to mine.

Keep rockin'!
