This is my first recorded composition to feature guitar and I'd love to hear what any fellow UG'ers have to say about it. It is very influenced by King Krule and Mac Demarco. Let me know what you think of the guitar playing, guitar tones and overall production, I'm still experimenting with recording guitar so I could do with any advice you guys have

Give it a listen and leave any constructive criticism you have in the comments, and include a link to a track of your own and I'll help you out too

Hey man, im critting as i go. First things first, that first chord voicing was sick dude! What was it? Now the drum beat kicked in, can say ive never heard anything like this be4, but im loving it! Is there bass guitar in this? If there is, I cant hear it. Not a huge fan of the clapping snare sound after a little while. I love the subtle delay on your tone too. If there were vox on this, it would be simply perfect dude!

flopper,
I like most of the guitar riffs, though not all of them. I think the drums could be better somehow. I like the bass tone & most of the bass riffs. Please review my music at this link:

Any ideas on what to do with the drum beats, or did you just not like the tone? Thanks for the feedback I'll check out your stuff

Honestly, I couldnt tell you what the first chord is, I've just been experimenting with jazz chords alot and working out what sounds good so the chords in this track are the result of my experimentation. There is a bass in it, you must have been listening through laptop speakers or something but if you listen with some decent speakers or headphones you'll hear it, maybe it should be a bit louder if you couldnt? Thanks so much for the positive feedback, this is my first guitar track so it really means alot to have feedback like this

Sounds cool. Though the drum beat is kind of darker sounding than some parts of your track - there were some chords that kind of "destroyed" the vibe, the maj7 chord at 1:40 for example. Sounds way too "happy" to my ears. (Don't get me wrong, I think it was a cool chord but I wouldn't have used it there.) But otherwise I think it sounded pretty good and had a cool vibe to it.

Edit: Before I wrote my comment I didn't read any other comments. I also liked your chord voicings, they were really cool. And the delay in the guitar tone sounded great.

And I disagree with aaron aardvark. I think the drum sounds were cool. That's just my opinion of course.

Hey there! Sorry it took me so long! The guitar sounds very nicely recorded so no worries there. I really like the guitar work especially when the lead comes in. Very jazzy and at times ethereal chords. I also like the minimal beat, but I feel like the kind of lo-fi drum sounds don't match the organic sound of the guitars. Sounds very good with the bass though.

This takes a few listens to grow, but I really like it. Good job!
