Hey man

Parabola sounds pretty cool. Nice clear motif, nice clear soloing, decent mix, it all works quite well. Cool classic rock sound. I personally think that there isnt a huge amount of variation. The track stays kinda in the same style for the whole time. I would say maybe add a bit of contrast in the track to keep a listener hooked.

Funny... other pieces I do a lot of contrast and people claim that I need to stay consistent with a particular motif, and then when I do that (although there are areas of just rhythm riffs and no soloing), then apparently I need to add more contrast, lol.

Yeah man. I guess its all about finding that balance. Staying with the motif is good, its the backing instruments that make the change most effective. Same motif repeated in like bass or repeated at half tenpo can sound mean
