    Here's my latest guitar instrumental. I think the bass on this one is more imaginative than most of my other ones.. See what you think - any opinions welcome!

    Like I said in my thread, I this is some awesome guitar playing and great production...At first I thought the bass was too loud, but it seems to settle in not long into the tune. Great stuff.

    Thanks for the comments!

    One interesting point.. the guitar I used for the lead, I bought in a garage sale for $15! I'm learing to paint guitars and I wanted something I could practice on so I did an EVH paint job on it! Doesn't sound too bad.. It's a Hohner Marlin.

    Bass is really punchy....clean guitars have a great tone...actually, so do the distorted ones. Nice playing man....The overall volume may be a bit loud....I turned the volume down here, and there seemed to be a few spots in the louder portion that were distorting. Not greatly, but had some buzz to it...

    It happened a few times, so it is noticeable to me.
    Other than that small thing, killer playing man...you picked some really good tones to go with this tune. It has a great vibe.

    Great playing. Amazing playing. Amazing mixing. Super tune. Worth listening again.

    The guitar tones are to kill for.

    Very metallica in places (like Orion).

    But still original.

    Post your gear list, please!

    I'd take the drums out of the 1st few bars.
    The guitar sounds like a guitar YEAHHHHHHHHHHH
    Very well played & made.
    In the early 80's in Australia we had a new Rock FM station that had a signature tune that had the same classic guitar stance - most people didn't like the station but every rock dog dug the sig.
    Well done.

    Cool tune, great playing...the mix sounds good, however, your clipping all over the place, almost constantly clipping. Possibly when your 'mastered' it?

    I'd say try and leave more room dynamicly in the mixdown.... to get rid of that constant clip... also your RMS is around -10dB which is possibly a tad bit hot for this type of tune... I dunno what you use to attain more volume, but ya probably wanna back it off about 3dB on the peak and RMS...

    Also FWIW I noticed more of the clipping on the right side.. It's on both but more noticeable on the right....
