Hey guys! Well i've never posted a song here because i usually forget my riffs as soon as I play them. I'll also let you know i'm no music theory expert. I just kind of play what sounds right but i do know basic things baout scales and keys.

Anyway I decided to start my own guitar project with a friend kind of like dual guitars. I want it to be metal , i'm influenced by dream theater, liquid tension experiment, yngwie, satriani, hammet, and myself

So i made my tab it's a powertab tell me what you think please! I like it myself so please dont tell me to get rid of it if it soudns bad, you could tell me ways to make it better

I don't plan on having any vocals , and this was meant to be on the easier side of things, I'm just learning how to incorporate melody into my songs instead of mindless shredding

note: I'm not a powertab beast, I dont spend hours making the tab sound just like real life, so realize that the tab is "imperfect"

yes it was flawed. there were some parts that I thought had some potentional but nothing on there is really catchy. try giving the riffs a more unique feeling (I know it's hard)

I thought it was pretty good, but the opening riff seemed bland. I'm not really much of a metal guy though.

Umm..really none had potential. Try re-doing it ALL. Make them more..catchy, and melodic.

Ya i would redo all of it since it all sounds like the riffs you put in would only require a few miliseconds worth of thought. If u're interested in dual guitar songs, check out Helloween's Halloween, great use of 2 guitars and the diminished scale

Trying having a solid base to work on before adding solos. You need a lot stronger riffs too. Work on the rhythm and score in powertab so it fits correctly too.
