I have hit a fork in the road for my side project. I created a riff for in C standard, and I have done everything except the drums, (and the extra guitar in one riff.)

SO, I have two different drum sounds for the same track. My buddy did the drums, and we jammed with Riff 2 sound which I liked. He threw me a curveball and recorded the other track which sounds good, too. Each drum track is totally different and would change my side project. I'm on the fence, but I wanted to see what you guys thought!


My question is if I can have your ears for 80 seconds. (The length of both riffs)

Check out Riff 1, and Riff 2. Please tell me which one you like and why!

Dude. You're from WV? Me too. Add me, damnit. I havn't been able to find anyone else from WV.

Riff 2 I like better because the drums are...well..audible over the obnoxious (but not too bad) guitar. The being said, work on your technique because it sounds like you are accidentally bending strings all over the place.

Well, if that's what you were going for I mean no disrespect, but I don't like it. You may, and if so, go with that. How well people like a song is 98% opinion and 2% how well it was recorded.

By all means! I thank you for listening. It's something I'm looking into. I appreciate your input. I can only get better through criticism.

I can see your point about recording, but sometimes bad recording turns me off...

Hey man it sounded good. I liked both and see absolutely no reason why they couldn't be two different parts in the same song. In fact, if you were to use both I think it would be a stronger song. Perhaps one verse and the other bridge or whatever you like. Varying a song up keeps it interesting for the listener and can provide ideas for new directions to move in.
