Hey, I've put a few more riffs together. The file is a big bigger to preserve sound quality.

Tell me what you think.:beer:

31% so far, I hope the loudmedicine server doesn’t give me a truncated file again (I got the other version of Rock Cliche this evening, worked fine).

You took a 3 second clip and looped it, didn't you?

Actually no. The only thing I looped was the scratching of the strings.

Trying not to make it sounds like game music this time? I like the bit towards (but not at) the end the best.

I like it, but I think I prefferred the last one. This one tends towards cliche occasionally, especially with the main riff, but it's definately got it's moments (especially with the almost Television-esue pick-hypnotic riff towards the end). The hard, industrial drum machine really suits the piece as well, and is much better integrated than on the last track.

I'd say it definately shows promise. You might wanna fiddle with the guitar setup a bit, and perhaps in a breakbeatesque fashion pick out the bitst that work best and concentrate them.

You realise I'm going to have to make it permanent now.

Purple makes her look better, though.

The solo bit? I kind of like that bit too. I just messed about and it sounded ok in the first try.:)

Thanks for the feedback, I didnt think you would like this one as much because its a bit heavier than the last one. I agree that the arrangement could use some work...

As long as "heavier" means "more bass, less treble, less energy" then yeah. :)

My wife is getting me a bass guitar for by birthday, so I can soon make things heavier.:D

A bass guitar can be used to liven things up too, actually, if you avoid getting too close to the guitar in sound and the devastating "wall of noise" effect. Practically every jamaican record between 1967 and 1972 has very, very basic "chink chink" guitars with the very melody being carried by the bass (and voice, of course), and they're not heavy at all.

Overall, I like it. Nice sound. I've gone to hole in the wall clubs and paid to listen to a lot worse. ;)

I think the guitar is fine.

The drums need a bit of work for my taste. Either bring them up so they feature more in the song from near the beginning, or back them off in the back half so they aren't there as much. As it is, it's on the fence and needs to go one way or the other.

Of course, I have no taste, I'm a total idiot, and I know absolutely nothing.

It's quite good, but remember that the gaps between what's being played are just as important as the riffs etc. At the moment it sounds like one long relentless solo, add more quite bits.

I can't hear it at work but I think you should add bass that closely follows the guitar for that great "wall of noise effect" :D

Thanks Darkstar! I think your taste is fantastic!;););)

I know what you mean, but the quiet bits seem boring to me. They always sound like they need something extra. Perhaps when I get my bass guitar I will be able to do something about that.

Thanks for listening!:)

I think it might be because that up and down run in the backing does sound a bit boring on it's own. Your last one was much better.

That sounds too harsh. Hope you know what I mean.

No worries funko, I actually agree with you.:)

Did you like the middle section though?

Darkstar

Well, a bass line would change everything. :D Post that when you have it. ;)

I liked the middle.

www.loudmedicine.net/rarr.mp3 Personally I prefer smaller files to preserve web space.
