Why do you mean the sound isn`t great ???
I like your sound !! I must not be the acdcsound always and every time. Give your sound a chance 😉

I thought the sound was a little too gainy…u didnt?? what did u think of the song….any advice??
AngusrocksPosted at 16:33h, 28 January
no, it isn`t very gainy, i would say a tad harder than chrunchie, but that`s fine, sounds very good! The song or the riffs of your song are pretty good !
The most songs are build up like this:
intro – main riff/verses – refrain – main riff/verses – refrain – solo – main riff/verses – end
I think this is something like a base of the most songs.
If i understand your song right, your intro goes until 0:20 and from there the main riff starts until 0:40. From there the refrain starts until 0:56 and then the main riff again, but this time you play your main riff different, you let ring out the chords. The song is different until you play your main riff again from 1:23.
The next refrain starts from 1:43 and is played until 2:00 and after that you let ring out the chords again and the song is different again and the solo starts and so on……..
For my taste, but it is only my taste, i would give the song a clearer structure. Your intro is very good and the main riff also !! I would let go your main riff over the whole song without these different parts in your song where you let ring out the chords. After the second refrain i would start with the solo wich is very good, i like it. While the solo is played i would let ring out the chords in this place/section what you have already done during your solo. This sounds good !
I would leave the end like it is, except i would let ring out the last chord instead of this stop.
But that`s all a matter of taste !! Decide for yourself 😉

WOW, very good description man :), yeah ill definitely try what u said, and after the solo I just stopped cus I didnt think of an ending yet, so I gotta work that out still but since that song, ive got two more recorded which r much better in my opinion, when I get a cd of them im gonna put them up here, I would love ur opinion again if u could, thanks again man 🙂
AngusrocksPosted at 18:02h, 28 January
oh, you`re welcome, fine if i could help 🙂
Good luck…..and yes, i will give you another opinion 😉

I like it! It’ll be great once you have a singer and a cleaner recording. Keep working on it man!
JohnnyPosted at 23:57h, 27 January
THANKS !!!!! and yeah i know about the sound lol…..thanks again it means a lot 🙂
Atomic'76Posted at 04:47h, 28 January
I just listened to it again and your lead guitar sound is fucking fat man even if like you said it gets quiet for some reason near the end; it’s just a technicality. 🙂 Actually, even though it is a bit quieter it fits in a bit better with the mix because I can hear the rhythm section a little more clearly. With out sounding too corny, I’d say you caught the rock’n’roll spirit of our favorite group pretty well with this one! 🙂
Did you do the bass parts too?
JohnnyPosted at 14:54h, 28 January
Well thanks again sir 🙂 and my guitar teacher did the bass and the drums r a machine….u probably knew that though 🙂
Atomic'76Posted at 21:01h, 28 January
Cool! Does your guitar teacher teach you some bass too?
I played bass in a band for a little while and I found that it not only made actually physically playing my guitar easier but it also gave me a different perspective that I could take over to the guitar. Also already playing the guitar made my bass playing a little more interesting because I would riff a bit more on the bass instead of just playing the basic one note bass lines. I always liked the way Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath played bass and kind of adopted his style because he too was a guitar player before he played bass and tends to riff around the neck in a more guitarist style. Anyway, all that to say that I believe one helps and opens up ideas for the other.
JohnnyPosted at 00:47h, 29 January
Nahhh, he just teaches me guitar and helps me with recording, and yeah geezer kicks ass, I got to see him twice with heaven and hell 🙂 and thanks for ur opinion man, I appreciate it 🙂

I would say the song is average to me. Maybe try to pick it up a bit not a lot but just a tad. It seemed to sluggish to me
AngusRudd1019Posted at 22:49h, 27 January
it has potential though, nice chord progression
JohnnyPosted at 23:25h, 27 January
first of all, THANK YOU for being honest, that’s what i need….and secondly , what do u mean by pick it up…make it faster or heavier or something??
AngusRudd1019Posted at 18:30h, 28 January
faster, not a whole lot though
JohnnyPosted at 00:48h, 29 January
Cool, thanks for the help man 🙂
