Hey, I wrote this song two days ago and I just finished recording it this morning. It was recorded on my cousin's Ovation/Ibanez Talman copy (sounds really good for a $100AUD guitar).

Also it's just a demo version (there's a few mistakes in there), I will do the real recording at my teacher's studio.

It's called 'Ice Tree'

nice piece, i really liked it (I'm listening to it the second time right, and I'll give it another listen). nice for a relaxed chillout.
what i miss a little bit is a certain sense of direction the melody line should head towards (i can't quite put this in words, maybe add some more harmonic tension) at the end.
the tone is really good, considering you used a 100 AUD guitar (how much is that in USD or ??), the high notes were clipping & buzzing a little bit, I couldn't quite figure out, wether it's the guitar or the recording. if it's the recording try some tweaking with an equalizer.

All the EQ and everything will be better when I record in the studio.

And $100 AUD = $74 USD or 58 EUR

I'll crit yours later because I have to go jam with some people in a few minutes.

Here's the guitar I used (its very ugly):

^haha!!! ya they do.

but its great man! the only suggestion i have it to watch the lead levels when you go into the guitars lower range...you seem too loose volume there.

but other than thats, great,great stuff.

Yes, it snows in Australia. Just not where I live. About 1 and a half hours drive away and you might see snow (on a very cold day).

And I named it Ice Tree because:

1) It sounded cool
2) At the time I was thinking to myself "Man would I love to be drinking peach ice-tea right now.". Ice tea sounds like ice tree, so yeah...

Little mixing tip.

Try to keep to keep the intruments out of the same sound spectrum.

Try EQing the rythym and take off a little high end, and maybe some mids.

Then drop a little of the lows on the leads.

Reduce the volume of the entire track to about -0.3

Try recording the rhythm twice, and panning hard left and right, and put lead somewhere in the middle.

Just some stuff to think about.
BOLD.

Thanks for the tips.

And about the EQing, I had more bass on the rhythem (sp?) and on the lead I added more presence and mids.
