Hey UG, I've done some recordings before but I thought I'd try a blues one. Feedback welcome, and please suggest a name for it!
P.S. If you're looking at this thread and listening to the song, please tell me what you think, or at least rate the song in the poll!

it sounds like you're starting to get the feel for the blues, but there's definitely a few things needed to be worked on. first, you're tone is too thin on the lead part, crank up the distortion some more or turn up the mid or bass to give it a kinda heavier feel. next, the backing track was much too light, you need to throw in some chords, trust me, it'll sound better. try and do more than just one guitar track for the backup, but don't make it too intricate or it will make it difficult to solo over. finally, the ending was not very good. a good way to do an ending (in the key of e) is when you're on the final verse, at the turnaround, instead of playing a b or b7, play an e and just do some noodling or w/e afterwords and let it ring out. you're starting to get the hang of it, just keep practicing and you'll get it.

What amp did you use to record the lead? It's harsh and nasty.

The blues is a little awkward and forced. Try to play within the chord progression a bit better. The most important thing in blues(the actual playing of the music) is rhythm, and yours is a bit weak.

Try to EQ your amp better and get a better feel for the blues rhythms that are used/can be used. Work on vibrato and bends.
