Ok, here's a few riffs I've been sitting on for a while. They sound really simple and punk rock-esque, but at about *1:08*, the song takes a turn for hard rock and metal.

I'm content, for now, with the solo's, although they will probably have to be changed soon.

At first, it may seem like a straightforward repetive song, but it gets better, trust me.

Crit for Crit.

That song is really good. I liked the stuff after it got a little heavier. The solo was really good too. Better than I can think up of. Im also listening to some of your other stuff, and all of it is really good. Mind critting some of these?

I like the first intro riff. Then again, I'm not quite fond of the punk-esque licks. They sound a bit out of place as this is more hard rock song.

The lead guitar wasn't very creative, to be honest. You kinda ripped of Hammett there, which is not a very good thing. No big mess-ups there. Just try to get some more originality.

All in all, this is well produced song with a good sound quality. Maybe you could make this longer and add vocals.

Dude this is my kinda song! love hardrock youd like my new bands ****....
I liked the intro that was cool actually i thought all the riffs were cool i think once you put on vocals in a hardrock style it would counteract the punkyness. But yeah i liked it; i like the last solo entrance how the drums stopped, very cool. How to improve? umm nothing i could think of really as for the sound. i thought the cymbals sounded a bit too thin. Crit mine?

The tone was pretty good, the riffs were tight and together, it was really nice. However it didn't really keep my attention, and it seemed a little boring in some parts. But it wasn't horrible or anything. I give it 8/10.
Hi.

I'm like..so cool

Yeah, they do sound out of place, but they were written first, and the hard rock stuff came after.

I know what you mean about the leads and you're right, they're very hammet like. I dont intentionally try and do so, it's just a bad habit. Plus, my theory's barely passable, so for now, I'm stuck on pentatonics mostly.

thanks for the listen, guys.

I love the riffs and the lead man, but i think you should employ some double bass, that would make this song sound sweet, dude.

well, Acoustica Beatcraft doesnt have a double bass option, but I've heard you can download other beats and sets for it. Does anyone know where?
#20
Wow, sweet stuff. Awesome guitar tones, wicked riffs. Seriously, it sounds great =D

The lead work sounds good to me, and the rhthym work is just intense

I got to learn how to use Acoustica Beatcraft as well as you =(

Just out of curioisity, how long did it take you to make the drum track?
#21
i really like some of your more metal riffs kinda sounds like metalicas "no remorse"... your solo is also pretty nice, i like your tone on the lead riffs, pretty cool, some vocals would be a nice addition to this song

overall its pretty good, nice quality, tone and overall sound

good job

Hey. that's some good material to work with... I like the riffs! I'm not so crazy about the punkish feel in the beginning. I like the solos, sounds a bit like KH.

The riffs give it an upbeat and happy sound. Not sure if that is what you were going for... I think the leads are the best quality of the entire song.
