I like it a lot.. Good job, the wah was delicately used , not overused..

Nice job
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

thanks for crittin my song.

Your song is very "hendrix" like. I like that
And as jelleman said it is indeed smooth
#5
stella: i like your tone in this alot. this did remind me of hendrix alot. i think you should turn down your highs a bit. the drums were pretty cool. again, the lack of bass is depressing. towards the end you had some timing issues. your final really distorted tone wasn't that great. the solo was very cool. i dug your riffs.

crit mine? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=804237
Too cool for a signature.

Thes are gonna start sounding cliché but it does sound Hendrixesque. The Wah is pretty nice and used in good levels. Something to work on and maybe a few more tracks in there (bass, acoustic rhythms, proper drums) and it would be a belter. The solo is great too.

Thanks for the crit on mine btw

is that a good thing it sounds like hendrix or bad, haha.
thanks for the crits everyone.
i am about to buy a bass, so when i get it i will try to throw it in there.
and i like the idea of putting some acoustic rhythm in there, i will have to experiment with that idea later. again thanks for all the crits, anymore would be appreciated.

have you played either? i'd suggest getting a fender jazz bass. it has a good tone for the type of nifty rock you play.

i have played my cuzs but i havent played the Epi. i dont play bass really, i just thought about gettin one so i can put bass on my recordings. i like the fender jazz bass tho, that would be my second choice. i just thought of the TBird because it looks cool, i dont know how it plays tho. but i will check out the fenders. thanks

i've never really liked the thunderbird...ask the guys in the bass forum about it

very nice feel. The tone is a bit shrill, not sure if its your amp or the wah pedal, but its a pretty empty sound. The end solo thing is pretty badass, but again lacking in tone a bit. Keep it up man. Thanks for the crit.

Really sweet playing...the tone was a bit harsh on my ears though. It could just be my ****ty headphones though. I don't really have anything to complain about...what you have so far is pretty impressive. I can only imagine it will get better as you add more.

thanks for the crit.
#23
nice tune, to me its pretty relaxing


Kinda felt like a sober acid trip


(never done acid but yeah)
#24
sorry it took me so late i was bombed last night,

I realy like the sound! It feels soothing and relaxing. I wish todays music world had more stuff like that. I think its time for "hendrix" type of rock to come back!

Oh man I like. The tone is nice and like gritty, great stuff. Love the hendrix/chili peppers vibe
The ending is wicked. Great licks, great feel. I'm loving your stuff man. Keep it up
#27
Very smooth. I like the tone. My first thought was that it sounded sort of like the Chili Peppers, but it definitely sounds like Hendrix too. Awesome guitar riffs and licks you got going on. The distorted part was good, maybe just clean up the tone a bit. The solo was awesome - it was a very fitting end.

This is really cool. Maybe clean it up a little bit, but overall very nice. Good job! And thanks for the crit.
#28
Hey, thanks for the crit. Not bad, real smooth ish. And great work with the wah too. My only complaint would be your tone seemed a little... lacking at times. Almost shallow. Just work on the tone and its all good. Nice work!

#29
I like your sound in this music wise - very bluesy and hendrix sounding. Your tone for me wasn't the best. My preferences for you would be to turn your highs a bit and increase your mids slightly. It would help if you get some bass in your track aswell just to give it a bit of low end. The drums were fine.

Good musical ideas, you just need to fine tuen your sound a bit.

Good stuff.
Flap it and enjoy yourself...

Not generally too keen on this type of music, but I thought this sounded pretty good. Nice smooth feel to it, it is very relaxing. I thought the wah really added to the song. I liked it when it started to get a bit heavier towards the end, sounded awesome. Overall, great job, well done!

Thanks for critting mine!

Listening now. Very nice.....Wah isn't overused. Some generic chords, but you transition them well, and it sounds good. I'd like to hear it with a second guitar playing the rhythm and a lead, but it's good bc you can make it sound full w/just 1...oh wait.....there it is hahaha. rhythm and lead. Sounds pretty damn good man. I like it! Badass

Great sound. I am in the minority, but liked your EQ settings. Personally, I would back off of the reverb a little bit. But great stuff, and I dig the laid back blues style. Peace
