Well, Ive been playing for about two years now, mostly self taught but I have been taking lessons for the last few months. Since I realized I had gotten better and could play many of the more simple songs of the deathcore/death metal scene I wanted to try my hand at composing something. To be honest, I still haven't gotten to the point where I can compose just out of nowhere and put something wonderful together. I'm still at the stage where I think of something and try to put it on the guitar by knowing how it sounds and where it should be placed.
Back on the topic of me writing a song, I figured the first place to start would be the intro. I worked on this intro today by thinking it up and then putting it on the guitar by sound and adding a diminished scale to try and end it. The problem is, some parts of it sound extremely empty like they were finished to soon or just overdone. So, I want you guys to aid me in the creation of this song. It is extremely easy so far and I would like to keep it that way and I know it would make a good learning experience even if I didnt do it all on my own.
I'm going for something similar to some of the stuff All Shall Perish did on their first album. SO, its easy so far and like I said I would like to keep it that way. Help me make the intro sound more full and less bland, and then maybe work into the next section? Please don't be overtly critical because like I said, I want this to simply be a learning experience.
Oh by the way, the 0s are what it muted. It was being gay when I copy and pasted for some reason.

Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.
