The track is called Ballad.


Yeah so I picked that name just for the attention. This song is an 8-track recording of two guitars. The piano at the start isn't quite as loud as I'd like because my instrument mic didn't pick it up so well and I don't know about recording piano (or even much about playing it, for that matter). There are some volume variance issues in this, so, eh, turn it up.
Enjoy

as you said, the intro piano is a bit muffled. But's it's a nice little melody to start off with.

Distorted guitars come in, very suddenly (in a good way). Lead in that section is nice, I'm not a huge fan of that tone, a bit too crunchy.

1:07 harmony was great, very well done.

1:16, chugging rhythm was catchy, but I dont know, the lead sounded a bit funny. It may just be me though.

Chord progression sections, it was good that you added those leads to liven it up a bit.

2:20 would sound great with a rhythm section. This is a very cool little breakdown.

The distorted section ends rather abruptly, maybe ease into the clean end a little better.

How are you tuned?

I wouldnt call this hardcore, but I wouldnt really know yet, because it's just guitars. But this really would sound great with full instrumentals and vocals.

Great job, very interesting piece.

Yeah I know my tone may have been a little too fuzzy in parts; I'm stuck using a hybrid amp so I can't always quite get that tight, smooth, all-tube distortion just yet. Thanks very much for the feedback, man. Your song kicked ass!
Cheers, Ro

Oh, and I think it's tuned to Drop Eb, maybe C. Yeah I dont like to label, but I guess I'm aiming at a very progressive form of post hardcore.
