    hi there.

    i just finished writing my latest guitar instrumental, been working on this one for quite some time as i have a thing for making my songs grow as they go by adding lots of guitar layers and keyboards, it's not uncommon for me to spend many month working on a song.

    it's just a hobby really, i got no band or anything, just my guitars, keyboard, pedals , Drum Machine, free software (cheap) :p

    the song is called "My Girl".

    Year - My Girl

    i hope you guys enjoy it and your opinion will be appreciated.

    Thank you. :)

    Very nice work, my friend. Your tone and touch is excellent, and the melody is of equal quality.

    Pretty good!
    The bass beat is a bit strong, it might be better to reduce the overall level or have the level change during the beat.

    It reminds me a bit of the first Bill & Ted film when they go to the future.
    Most tranquil lol.

    thanks guys much appreciated :)

    i will try equalize the sound, don't have a real studio at home or anything lol just Audacity and a couple of multitrack apps.

    one thing i want to say is that i can shred if i want to, but somehow i always thought guitars should really "speak" to the listener, it should sing like voice, especially for Melodic Rock songs like this, i do like to mimic the vocality of a human being on the guitar without using effects like "WahWah", only technique.

    and i know absolutely nothing about music theory, scales, dorian or whatever the hell this stuff is, i've always played by ear.

    PS. just a little background for those who are interested. :p

    as for the rig i use a multieffect, the Digitech RP90, the overdrive i use are the TubeScreamer TS9 and the amp simulated Marshall JCM800 distortion, also unlike many guitarists, i use a lot of Compressor.

    i use 0.8s strings lol

    lol that's funny because i actually wrote Lyrics for this song, that's how i got the guitar melody, i need to write some kind of lyrics in order to make the guitar "sing it", not viceversa. :D

    anyway here's the lyrics i wrote when i first started.


    *First Part*


    There's no more time to say, the words i really wanted to say

    'cause now you're gone away, and i am falling apart

    you, you were, the light that shined, deep inside this, lonely heart of mine

    no i don't care, and i don't mind that i feel this pain



    *Second Part*


    it's hard to look at the clouds again, when all i see are thunderstorms

    the rain is falling like tears from the sky, it's washing you away

    the drops are burning my soul, and on my knees i crumble and fall

    you used to be my strenght My Girl, the king is now without his queen



    (clean guitar part)


    - Memories of you will never fade, even though you're gone away now

    i still love you girl

    nothing else i can do

    and forever you'll be My Girl.



    *final chorus*


    - the clouds has disappeared, the sun is shining again on me


    the voices are gone


    and i will always love you My Girl."

    Sounds good. I'd be tempted to make the drums/keys a bit quieter in the mix though, they overpower the guitar. Add some reverb to 'em too.

    *Rocking out to Year's tune* :cool:

    Great job, I like it. I agree with the others, I also think the guitar should be louder.

    Very nice... I like the way you let the melodies speak for themselves.

    Throw that up on Youtube! and uh.. get someone who knows how to handle a vid cam, not just those typical webcam ops most use for YT.
