I had a great deal of fun putting together this one.

It started out as Carol of the Bell in D so that the underlying chords were those classical chords from Canon in D, but end up as...well...everything but the kitchen sink = P (the heavy part is NOT in D).

Hope people enjoy it, sunk alot of time here.

Interesting...

A unique piece my good sir. Although I wasn't exactly connecting with a real familiar vibe with it you basically gave the correct description of the song. Everything but the kitchen sink. I understand how improvising a song can be great, but try improvising a song and then go back and working more on it.

Yeah, I am still thinking about reworking parts of this song..for one at the end I completely forgot to put in the drums >.<.

And yeah, I felt that it was a fairly accurate description seeing how by the time I had 3 vibes I decided to get a few more in there =P.

Thanks for the advice,

Neat vibes, good percussion, good melodies :D!

An interesting beat for sure :D! If I am not mistaken you are using Slayer for the guitar work here?

The beginning was something familiar as you already pointed out, so I wasn't too impressed by it, however after that you got quite creative with the piece!

Everything but the kitchen sink? I'm pretty sure there was some kitchen sink around 1:20, for I fear my kitchen sink and that part was somewhat scary D:

The song transitions somewhat awkwardly. You seem to have a rather good concept of making a segment, the weakness lies in tying them together. It is not easy, often really hard especially when you have as many moods and vibes as you do in this piece, jumping from one end to another.

Good percussion work though.

I didn't quite like the panning going on for the most part. It seemed a tad distracting, however I know some people who would love this kind of effect so I guess it's more of a personal preference then a technical one.

All in all, good stuff TWM! Keep up the good fight, and keep em coming!

Yeah this is a slayer guitar action kinda song...messed around alot with presets and stuff ;P.

Haha, yeah the transitions, they started out as me trying to make them smooth (the first one) but after that I almost tried to take pride in how rapid and immidiate they were (a good example of this is between the heavy metal and the triplet based part, and between the bass part and the end).

OH MY GOSH..Just realized I didn't remember to put percussion at the end >.<.

Thanks for the compliment on percussion, that part more so just comes to me (being a percussionist).

That darn panning..I know it's only when I used the guitar preset on slayer called something like "Leslie" which had just the sound I wanted, and didn't know that it panned back and forth until the day after I submitted...because I had left my headphones at school. But yeah, some of my friends LOVE that it does that, while others don't care much for it.

Thanks Maestro, I'll do my best to keep putting stuff out ;P (hopefully at a quicker rate then 1 every 4 months).
