Hey everybody I'm really glad to see a thread like this. I need feedback from unbiased sources.

Four tracks here. From the top, there's field, a piece I am personally proud of. Lots of bass, lots of spring verb.

Lugnut is very much an extension of the fact that I was listening to Dave brubecks time out while writing this one

2002 is more of a conceptual piece wherein I see the synth filling the role of nature as a whole, and the modulation of said synth and funky guitar being humans altering nature to fit their needs.

Beast is my first real step into lyricism, and although a few lines are shakey, and I take on some sort of weird bluesy christopher walken impression, I feel as though it has promise in its story.

Tell me what you think

Take voice lessons!! The piano is very soulful, and your voice is almost there! With proper training, I could see you going far.

Been working on these for the last 2 days. Tell me what you think! obviously some of the recordings are a tad sloppy, and the mixing job is godawful. These are definitely works in progress! Other than that, I would love to hear what you guys think.

Production was super rough too more of an idea than anything
Should I keep going with this song?
I really like it! Definitely needs to be pushed and pulled into a song, and I wouldn't make it too long. Could be nice with a bluesy solo in their too.

The drums are from a machine, as I dont have the necessary equipment to record them live. Other than that, yes! Thanks for the feedback, I have another one on my page now that I am quite proud of. Feel free to check it out! If you have any demos posted somewhere I would love to return the favor

Hello everybody, I just got my rough demo for my new song finished, still missing the guitar solo though. The track is instrumental prog or something, I can't really describe it properly so you'll just have to listen to it ; ). All feedback is appreciated, negative or positive, just try to keep it somewhat constructive if possible.

Naming istrumental songs is pretty much pain in the ass for me, so I decided to let my dog name it for me, seems I made the right decision... Have a listen, please!

In the interest of discussing process:

- I really like ZZ Top's "Just Got Paid". I wanted something kinda sorta like it. Listened to the song once as a refresher, aped the overall vibe/structure as quickly as I could, obviously not being too precious about it.

- I programmed the basic drum beat using samples I recorded years ago

- Put down the guitar track. I had the riff/verse/chorus ideas, but I improvised the middle section.

- Put down the bass.

- Put down the Juno "lead" (haha)

- Put in the crashes, did a few edits in the drums

- Did the little "mute/stutter" edits toward the end

The writing/demoing process, so far, is at about 45 minutes.

Feel free to chime in, I'd love to hear opinions about the process and the music.
I didn't notice the post date on this, so forgive me if it's old, but I REALLY like this... would love to hear the finished product.
