well ideally you would have the chords keep going and someone solos over the top, then it slows downs, speeds up to climax, and then cuts down to just the chords (no drums), and then stops

you might wana try adding some more chords to the mix...i could only tell you switching between D and G..so why dont you try some other ones

Whodicted

Ok so me and my friend are coming up with a new song and we wan't ito be instrumental no lyrics but the only problem is after a while the guitar sounds repetative and i can't think of anything to add. http://youtube.com/watch?v=cLJXyPH5-A8 thats the video please give me some ideas


You know why it sounds repetitive? Because it is, add more parts, a mid 8, more of a change between verse and chorus, more interesting chords than just open chords maybe even some lyrics, who knows? More in general, just not more of the same.

you guys look like you're 12. hahah, just kidding, but i would suggest a few more fills on the drums. also, if this were my song, i'd add some soloing over top, preferably on piano, but thats my opinion. i like the progression, nice work.

If you know bar chords, ( i personally love em) you could maybe throw in a couple, i dunno just a suggestion.

I think you should play the beginning progression like you do however when you hit that last chord that you end on at the end of your video let the chord ring and ride without strumming anymore and have the drums stop with the cymbol which he hits there anyway then build the song back up...maybe play the same chords but finger pick them and slowly build back up.

Kind of like Led Zeppelins "Thank You" song...click link and lisen to it
