Not quite sure how to really categorize this tab, but I'd probably say metalcore. Any criticism/suggestions or praise (mainly praise!) would be appreciated.

If you have something you'd like me to look at just link it in your post.

Thanks,

Enjoy!

ps, don't be harsh on the drums, I have no idea how to write them, just added as filler in some parts.

The synths dont work with any of your riffs, so leave them out for now.

The sudden key/scale swap at bar 32 doesn't work either.

16-18 the riffs are alright, if too diatonically simple, but the underlying chords dont work at all.

Bar 43-47 I like the idea, but it resolves too quickly. Try this order: 43, 44, 45, 47, 43, 44, 45, 46.

Aisde that its metalcore, so inb4 people saying epi's a douche, inb4 omgus, inb4 me.

Alright cool thanks man, glad some of the stuff I have in there is decent.

I can see how that one part at 32 doesn't work, can definitely try to re-work that, but when you say the chords in 16-18 are not good... what would you suggest for that?

I think there are some good riff scattering around the song....but, overall, it's a pretty decent ideas of metalcore song...

for the bar 18, i think you don't need to use 5/4 time signature...try to change it to 4/4 and use D and E chord in half note for each chord. And then change the riff to match the 4/4 time signature... (check out the attachment)

bar 42 - 47 is a pretty good part, I like it...

C4C?

Added some harmonic corrections, a riff variation here and there to make it sound more melodic, also changed the underlying chords for 16-18.
