Good but to be honest a little boring. I mean you obviously have skills but the song is a little too repetitive for my taste. At the beginning I was like"wow this sounds good" but then the intro never ended. You have to have a true defining moment for the intro to end. Maybe like a climax then short pause before you start up the song. And then with your so nicely established main rhythm, add a nice and slow lead part. I can even hear it now.

Anyway, don't take it too personally. You are really good at guitar but need some help on arranging. Good job though.

sounds really original, very nice quality. I like the tone of the 1st solo. I like the clean chords in the background of it. overall very chill.

critting while listening here..


I'm really liking the bass line in the intro and verse thing the synth is cool to. your clean guitar tone is a little harsh. the lead guitar needs to come up some in the mix it's kinda buried. that tone is a but Fizzy imo. your also off time in a couple places.

overall it's really good needs work though the sound quality is great though.

the bass was the shiner here though.

7/5 of ten

c4c?

Wow, that was only one guitar? Damn. It does need to be boosted in the mix, though. It's a great song to listen to while reading the way it is now.

I thought that intro was bass tapping for a second.

The tapping riff is very good. Certainly not something I hear very often.

I love the analog synth sound of the solo as it's fading up, but the chord progression doesn't do it for me.

I don't know what the people who said it got boring were thinking. I think there was enough on the layers of synth sounds and whatnot to keep me interested.

This is a fantastic effort for a first recording. You have some good ideas with panning and such.
I'll link you to mine when I go back and copy the link.

EDIT: Haha, link!
