ive hit the books and now know almost all music theory and this is a little head arrangement i threw together for the practice. it was originally in Ab but it kind of wanted to be in Eb. also, the lyrics are just filler. not meant to be serious... the two solos do have a few accidentals and they were meant to be there so unless you know bout theory, i dont want to hear anything bout mistakes... hope you all like it. please leave feedback.

Quite enjoyable

thought I would leave a little review on this too because I've listened to it a few times and found it quite nice man, its fun and has a good groove. Love the chord progressions and the catchy strumming patterns. You know it actually reminds me a bit of the band Smashing Pumpkins. Vocals flow nicely too, I know you said theyre just filler, but they wouldnt take away from the track at all, so IMO it wouldnt hurt to bring them out more. I guess the same suggestions regarding my advice for "syncopation cover" could be applied on this one too, make some parts a bit louder, and EQ more bass in here as it seems like there is a cutoff in the low section making the overall mix feel a bit empty (can barely hear the bass kick). The lead guitar definetly needs a more definable texture to make it stand out from the backing guitar, try experimenting with different FX and panning it a bit more to the left or right. At the same time, the reverb setting and EQ kinda makes it sound like I'm sitting in a car outside from an arena so its cool from a certain perspective. I would also like to add that after I got done reviewing your other track I realized that my volume was only at 80%, so my apologies about that.

Now on to the composition. The chords are placed really nicely like I said above, and the track as a whole is sequenced quite good. I like how the transitions just lull for about three seconds and smoothly come back in and move actively. The drums are very nice, lots of diversity and variety throughout with lots of tom and cymbal usage. They sound pretty authentic too, did you make these yourself or did you sample them/download a loop? The first solo was decent, but a bit sloppy rhytmically. The malle perc (or is it a /harp?) instrument does sound pretty cheap too, it needs some chorus/multilayering. I like how the harp/mallet thingy molds into the guitar solo, but I think there could be more emotion in the solo, kind like your solo in your syncopation cover track, were you used more bending and slides. Also, if you picked up the pace a bit and included some faster licks it would put more into the solo, but that might not fit the themes of the track.

All in all a great track! The composition is fine its just needs more polishing thats all. Might just be the hardware that you have to upgrade a little. Well keep it up as always :)

AWESOME HEAD ARRANGEMENT!!!

Irish rogue chantey sounding...I loved it and you are so majorly talented in a most unique way. I could see the "walking" tempo of this song, I can see this piece supporting animation and I could hear from your vocal performance, winds of Mick Jagger breezing past. With more compositions and exposure, you will make your dreams come true!

Regarding the "tonal garbage" comment of another: Your too good to let a comment like that get you bent out of shape...way too much to offer than to spend your time defending yourself against envious people...just remember:

Envy is the art of counting the other fellow's blessings instead of your own. ~Harold Coffin

So when your making others busy themselves with counting your blessings...your doing good...don't let the negative words of another ever get you down...keep going...you are talented, no doubt!

Sounds like something out of an old school Mindless Self Indulgence album. I don't think they put this much care into their music, though...

Anyway, pretty humourous lyrics (sorry if they weren't meant to be... just the way they were sung cracked me up), with some pretty nice composition behind it. Great combination. Awesome solos top the whole thing off. I can tell you put a lot of time and devotion into this piece, and it shows. Great work! =] 5/5

honestly, i put 3 days into it and it took about an hour to master it a little.. all in all id have to say that learning theory made the whole process 100% easier and much faster. thanks for the comment.
