This is a song I made a while ago. It's pretty basic, just a few chords or whatever. No lyrics yet, but I plan on writing some. You know the drill. I'll also be willing to listen to other people's stuff and offer my own opinion.

I have also included a text version of a tab for those who do not use PowerTabs because I thought it might be nice to have or something like that...

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Yay, I have Guitar Pro! So... I've included a GP4 version along with GP5, a MIDI of the GP5 version, and a Powertab version that I originally wrote it with.

I'm not going to say that the drums are spectacular or anything, just basic drums. I suck at writing drums. I really don't know too much about drums and I would rather have a real drummer come up with a drum line in a jam session. The same goes with the bass, but I'm sure that people don't want to hear just a guitar.

Again, crit for crit...

listening


love the bass intro in 5-9. definitely sounds nostalgic to me

bass in bars 12/14/16 etc sounds odd to me, the bent note. might just be the midi.

the end of the solo at bar 58 could have ended a bit more...explosively?

the bass in 62-64 sounds off

and also the ending sounds unfinished, which it probably is

i don't listen to much rock but this reminded me of some 80's/early-90s rock like guns n' roses and some of the hair bands, good listen though i'd like to hear it with some drums and a bit more variation to some of the sections

crit me? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=793599

I like it. The bass was nice, but kind of boring in the chorus. I really enjoyed the chorus, although I didn't like the flow from chorus to verses. The solo was awesome! reminds me of guns n' roses, but i didn't like how it ended, it does not flow IMO; I guess vocals are supposed to cover that up.
great job 9/10

Ps. Thanks for critting my song!

sounds great! the mellow intro is kind of boring without vocals, but that's to be expected. the chorus also feels like it could use a bit more variety, though that's probably more of a personal preference. the solo sounds catchy though good work on that. the ending like the other's said sounds a bit out of place because of the sudden transistion from the solo. maybe you could add a lead to that? just a suggestion!

well crafted piece 8/10

record it with vocals some time to do it justice!
