OK so heres something I've been working on for a little while. Overall I'm pretty satisfied with it, but after the ascending scale pattern from measures 57-88 I'm just not sure where to go. I tried throwing a solo in there but it just sounded patchy and unrefined. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

PS it's called BATTLETOADS because it reminds me of old NES game

Very nice, sort of happy sounding
Nice harmonys!

Some of the drums didn't seem playable to me.
*I play drums aswell as guitar. so sorry if this sounds picky*.
Not because of the speed, but the two kick pedals going at the same time at some points; I wasn't sure if they were both feet at the same time or doing a double kick.
And there is a part where your hitting 2 cymbals and the snare, you'd need three hands !

It lacks bass aswell

Good Job though! 7/10
I deeply regret the 6661 in my username. Siiiigh. Damn you, 14 year old me, you edgy little bastard.

Thanks guys! Yup you're both right still trying to work on a good bassline.
As far as the drums are concerned, I have the kick pedal doubled up just so it sounds more punchy in gp5, the drummer wouldn't be stomping both pedals at once
Similar effect with the cymbals; sometimes I pair up two cymbals to create a single sound that I imagine coming from a single cymbal.
I'll see if I can get a bassline together on my next day off and throw an update on here.

Yeah, the MIDI drum's are crap.
So I get what you mean, I just put them in normally because I often make backing tracks with them due to a lack of drum recording equipment at my house.
