Schecters(specifically Hellraiser)Ibanezs work to imo. But it seems if you switched out the pickups on a Jackson( I think they have decent models in your price range) that would fit what your needs the most.
Maybe have him reflect on the death family or a loved one. Maybe some titles(not necessarily for the topic just mentioned.) Blinding light- describing the immediate impact of the war specifically the bomb the angels unleashed- alluding to the angel of death Death of the Dark- another allusion to the bomb or ignorance of the masses
ok theres only a couple things 1. watch out for rhyming to much it really wasn't that bad in this song but it can get annoying for the listner 2"most beautifulest" idk if you misspelled that or if you meant to but it doesn't really flow in my opinion 3 in the first verse "darling just tell me when" i'm not exactly sure what that means so try to clarify overall a decent song
I liked it. The vocals were good for the most part just some of the high notes need to be worked on. guitars were pretty good.biggest problem is that i couldn't hear drums or the bass. if you do that and just smooth out the vocals you'll be good. and still cell really to expect someone to come close to zeppelin jimi or acdc is ridiculous there is only one jimi there is only one zeppelin. good job though overall.
The lyrics themselves are decent but you need to organize it better it seems more like a poem than a song. I'd suggest organizing it into a verse,verse,chorus,verse thing or whatever you want. Overall looks good keep it up!
Coheed and Cambria: Blood Red Summer the line "what did i do to deserve" it's such a simple phrase with so much meaning Feathers The chorus after the solo makes me want to get up and just belt out the whole entire song the solo before it the empahsis on claudio's vocals are all just amazing
verse one- throughout my life(2-3second pause maybe) i've come to realize(same thing here) i've been missing out on all the things that really mattered verse two-will you....help me...understand what i need(pause)(whispered) to live verse three- I know it's so much to ask for, but please.............for me chorus- help me to realize why this is the end, help me learn not to pretend help me to realize why i must die help me to realize(woah)
without knowing what the music sounds like this is hard to figure out but thats what i got
If it helps at all write down what aspect of love your trying to write about or images you associate when it comes to love no offense to anyone but try not to make it rhyme every line unless you want to i guess. Just write exacly what your trying to espress Ex:love is beautiful,Love is amazing,I love her,She loves me,I don't love you,Love hurts etc. then try to use different and more poetic words i guess you could call them and try to build off of that. Hope it helps=)
i start off by making a simple riff a little kind of 3 second thing maybe a little longer then i try to add some chords to fill the song out. For me that is a basic song set up i would reccomend learning the notes on th efretboard and theory i think there is a good lesson for theory on here called the crusades but use the internet to go a little more in depth if you need to
Ok i'm no frontman or whatever but i'd have to agree with the practice and also find a certain way of singing you know you really good at for example low and soft this is great in my opinion for acoustic songs. If you find a way you're good at singing just do that until you are no longer nervous but don't be afraid to explore different styles of singing as well And if you screw up in front of people just mess around with your voice and laugh at it thats what i do and people don't bash me. ha not yet at least good luck!=)
i don't know if you've bought guitar already but i'd advise get a good quality acoustic but don't spend a lot on it. or as my teacher told me learn how to shred on a beater than buy a nice electric and you will be amazing but id learn on acoustic because it is harder to press the strings down true but it will make your fingers stronger and every good punk band has to have an EP right?=)
If you want a suggestion i just do all what i consider the boring stuff first a couple of times then i basically screw around with different songs and improvise and what not and don't time yourself that makes it boring just play for how long you want to play. And if your trying to learn a song for example the intro start of going through it slow a couplle of times until you feel comfortable enough to go quicker but don't feel like your obligated to be constanly practicing th esam epart have fun with it!
Try for the chords to Into the Night,Knocking on heavens door(bob dylan version), Working Class Hero (John Lennon),Turn the page(bob seger), and............... look for the acoustic chords to sweet child of mine(Guns N Roses) or Faithfully(Journey). Hope that helps
