Full name:
Straight from the Horses Fingertips

Full name didn't fit in the title
Really I made this to practice multiband compression, guitar effects, maximizing volume and decreasing dynamiscs for a remake of The Guitars Are Getting Restless, which still sounds like crap.
more practice is in order

Fun fact: Straight from the horse's mouth comes from telling a horses age by the teeth, which was more reliable than what the seller of the horse says. NOW YOU KNOW!


I liked this.

I had to listen to it a few times before I could think of anything to say. I think this was because I couldn't really find anything to critique the submission on at all. It was really catchy, fast pace, and just really fun to listen to.

I honestly can't think of anything else to say than that. That usually doesn't happen to me that much. Good job on this submission all around.

The fast-paced riffs are very interesting. The beat is dynamic.

The real problem is that it seems a bit long and repetitive even though it's not, oddly enough. I mean, you continuously changed the riffs and melodies, yet I guess that the cause of this "repetitiveness" is the guitar that acts like a beat (heard in 0:07-0:12) that was a bit overused, but I might be wrong.

I didn't like the conclusion much. It seemed rushed.

Apart from these two things, the song can be heard over and over again without being annoying. This song could be interestingly useful for some strange game that has a "time-trial" aspect to it.

Good job.

thanks, ya, iguess i never really thought that the background guitar would make it repeditive, but it definately doesnt change much throughout the entire song, maybe i should make the second half of the song, well, less rushed


First off. I like a lot of what's happening here. The beginning starts really nice and subtle with the bass and drums, which is nice. Then that guitar comes in. It's nice, but it sounds like there's some reverb on it giving it a distant feel and there's also this ring coming off of it. As soon as other parts start playing within the song the ring isn't as noticeable which is nice.

Next thing I noticed was a lack of energy. You've got these nice parts that sound like they're lacking. I'll give an xample. 1:42 - 2:30. That sounds like a major build up, but it's lacking suspense so when 2:30 does hit I'm not really surprised. When 2:30 hits, that's when the song should affect me the most. The drums are mostly the same is sound throughout the entire song which may affect the energy experienced. Just go back and mess with them, don't be afraid to play with the rhythms. There are also other ways of dealing with this.

Overall, I can say I liked a lot of what was going on as well. You've got some fun melodies that are going on all around. The song is actually relaxing for the most part. You use a variety of effects which turn out nicely and are used well for the most part.

Keep up the work.

Ya, not really sure what to do to make it better aside from the drums.
Ive been working on using more rythmic drums lately, due to the fact I used to make the drums my lead instrument, and that just made songs suck
