Crunchy guitars at 102bpm. The bridge gradually slows down to 88bpm then kicks back in full speed. Needs drums, bass etc.

Intro(same as "chorus")/verse/chorus/verse/bridge breakdown/chorus/verse out/ finally resolving to an Eminor chord

Very first chord sounds like Soundgarden to me, lol. The rest just sounds like me IMO.

I wrote it with drums for timing etc but never intended to leave the drums on. I tend to play behind the beat so I will be interested to hear what some drummers come up with!

Song is mostly in either G maj or E minor with a few outside tones here and there. The intro is a little hard to pin down. Most of it is more of an unresolved feel but the final chord of the song is eminor. The "verse" and outro is C and D back and forth. The bridge is in Dmajor then D7th.

Different bass notes could possibly add a totally different harmonic feel. (either G in verse, or C drone, or C to D etc)

The bridge has some room for experimentation. I could even hear some nice strings

Im guessing the sound you are referring to is mainly coming from the guitars being doubled but without a ton of reverb. At least thats how that first part is done

Mainly everything has "high pass" filtering EQ applied to stop it from being muddy or boomy etc.

The first part ("chorus")is doubled with guitars split left/right

If I remember correctly the other parts have one guitar panned probably to the right and that guitar is pretty dry. Then I send the effects to another track which is panned left. Usually just reverb and sometimes some delay. Could be chorus on some stuff but I dont remember.

Im still learning lol. if it sounds ok its partially by accident

The "dry one side, effects panned the other way" is sort of taken from VanHalens first album. They had the dry guitar panned strong to one side then the other side was just all reverb with the guitar way off in the distance. If you use headphones and pan side to side it sounds like 2 different albums lol
