Thanks to Mr Adams for the great drum track Pretty obvious who the influence is here. This was about 4 hours work total after sitting down from scratch with just a drum track. Like several of my tracks it ends just when it is getting good. Lots of good tonalities and twists and turns when you realize its just one guitar part doubled with no overdubs etc. I used to write some similar stuff back in the 90s (4 track lol) ...

JonJon Thanks Mulambo. I like the word "composition"...that means id be just as happy to hear someone else play it as long as I wrote it lol +2
Yeah love the tone and playing!+1
wow, I was really driven to despair this morning upon a fresh listening of this track. The chair I sit on when recording is terrible for squeaking and it is sitting right next to the amp/microphone in my cramped "studio."

So Im listening back to the track and I hear what I think are massive chair squeaks at 1:06 and 2:25. I reluctantly boot up my Reaper to see if I cant edit the squeaks out and then re-upload the track. (which I consider totally amateurish)

Long story short, I find that the "squeaks" arent chair squeaks at all but a little hi-hat accent lol. They occur at 2:25 and 1:06 which is in the exact same spot of the chorus where I have played the Gm6 chord.

So I wont jump into the river today, but between the squeaky chair and the AC unit kicking on I may eventually be driven to madness

JonJon Thanks bro. yeah the mixing, im still learning. for instance im clueless on compression and stuff like gating etc. Semi clueless on EQ. I try to get the guitars loud enough to hear but not overpower the drums. I want the drums to do most of the work lol.

It helps to have the guitars panned out wide left/right to leave plenty of room for drums/bass

Only started using my first DAW like 65 days ago lol

JonJon well so far I havent done any wikiloops where I do rhythm AND lead etc. I played lead on 23476 but I didnt play or mix that rhythm track.

I just havent gotten around to building a full song yet.

So far im only mixing rhythm parts and drums...so I sound ok because there is so much room to play with lol

Dick hehe just drop the "gates" from your clueless-list, you will not need any playing guitar - gates are used to shut down mics to avoid them catching unwanted signals, for example if you mic a drumset or anything else including many mics +1
