I'm not usually into this type of stuff, but this is awesome. It's got some really catchy riffs to it, and the solo is fantastic! Fits really well. Your tone fits this song well, but could do with a little less fuzz maybe?

Thnks for critting mine!

struttin busted: nice riffing! i really dig this. maybe we could collab some time and i could do vocals and bass? anyways, i like the harder chorus alot. bass would make this better though. i'm really digging the bluesy licks! nice soloing! the solo tone was bit harsh though...

Too cool for a signature.

Nice and blusey. Very nice licks going on, and the drums add alot to it IMO.
My only gripe is your tone may be a bit too fuzzy. That's it though, otherwise, it's great.

Texas, Im following the consensus here with the good riff work.

I think most people want you to add vocals because this is a blues and they are looking for a more dynamic song. Vocals could be a solution among many things. You could put in a solo earlier in the song and then a longer one later (commonly done). You've got foundation for a good blues-rock tune.

I really like how the chorus is heavier than the rest of the song, and the little breakdown bit was cool in between 1 of the choruses Needs vocals like everyone else said, guitar sounds good for solo, I didnt really like it but its a lot better than anything I could write so..lol

The opening riff for Just A Little is quality

Crit back? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=784808

Thanks

Well gosh whatever I was thinking has allready been said.

a. I dug it.

b. Solo earlier plus the existing solo.

c. I actually thought there was a cool vibe to the lead sound...a tad over the top but I wouldnt fool with the sound to much.
If you check my profile song please leave a comment on any part.....THANKS!!!

I like the whole slow groove blues thing you have going on... sort of a white stripes meets nickleback kind of sound. Vocals could really decide the sound that you are going to for... whether it is more indie or more hardcore. Anyways, keep it up, and let me know when you get a singer!

Sounds very bluesy! i like it! pretty sweet tone too just doesnt sound recorded brilliantly but its still not bad nice crunchy sound :P good stuff man just needs some vocals and itd be a pretty damn kool blues song

I love the solo, very White Stripes-y. This stuff would sound really good with some vocals, I hope you can find somebody one day, and get some vocal tracks in there for us to hear.

****ing beautiful. I loved it. The way you structured the drums gave an incredibly nice lumbering feeling, which I just loved. I found myself making up lyrics and singing along halfway through. The distortion got a little bit muddy for a second near the beginning, but it seemed to fix itself and wasn't a bother. I loved it, just loved it. The only real problem I had was the outro, it didn't really put a period on the song and seemed like you just tried to end the song then and there.

Overall, a great piece. Would it be to much to ask for a download? (I loved it that much and it'd be nice to have some instrumental blues like that walking back and forth from school)

The title's pretty fitting!
Got a real bluesy strut to it.

Drums could do with a little bit more variation, but apart from that they're fine.

Guitar could do with some eq. If you're recording with Cubase or Nuendo, put the overdrive plugin on an insert on your guitar channel, put it on the "Warm" setting and turn the speaker simulation on. Turn the drive down if you want, mess about with the eq's seperately, leave everything else as it is. That'll make it sound less mic'd up, more direct, but still with the characteristics of your guitar tone. I do it to all rhythm guitar parts in my bands tracks.

Solo's awesomely played. REALLY intense moment there! But it's a tad too loud, drowns everything else out and looses impact cos of it.
It's a very "the-guitar-player-mixed-this" sounding mix, guitars are too loud, drums have no breathing room. Turn the rhythm down -3db or so and then adjust the solo around the rest of it, loud enough to hear everything else, but with the solo still being louder than the rhythm.

Musically, no real flaws except the drums needing a bit more variation, the guitar's fine but the drums drag a bit as the song goes on. Nice clean sounding recording that can be made a bit better.

Feel free to leave me a comment or a message on my profile if you tinker with it any more!

really tight guitar playing. awesome riff. nice tone. pretty good recording as well. it'd be nice if there was a bit of a solo in there. good effort though.

there was a solo, towards the end

Really liked this. Nice dirty blues riff you've got going on there! Like someone else said a bit less fuzz on the tone maybe, all down to personal preference though.

Easily imagine this with vocals, its perfectly fine without, works either way! Just go find a band and some bar to play this for hours at a time in and you'd be right at home i think. Solo's pretty good too, great job overall!
