Very professional sounding

You should make a career out of this, it's really awesome. It must have taken a long time to make, I bet. I don't think there is anything wrong with this. Well, it could use more cow bell but meh.

Gian responds:

Thank you very much Anthony :3 I appreciate your words.

Nice Audition you got here.

It splits into two different songs or whatever you want to call it. I wish I could make a nice sounding drum track to this, but it flows strange not that that's bad.

All the guitars sound good, but it's just incomplete without other instruments. Just like drums sound incomplete without a guitar playing with.

I like it and how it all sounds, keep it up Gian bro.

Gian responds:

Thank you col. GET SOME RECORDING EQUIPMENT DUDE, we have to put some drums on this :P

Where's the POW?

You need some basses and drums in there, its almost annoying just hearing it without drums, although the arrangement itself is amazing.

Gian responds:

Thank you. I need a drummer (: I know.


Really great rhythm and beat, the intro was a little too long I thought and the middle of it was cool but I think you should have added in some drums and maybe some vocals?
Hope you get into that Uni you want to get in and hope to hear from you soon.


Gian responds:

Thank you very much Sarah. I know there is lack of percussion, but since it was a guitar audition, I left it like this :P I just composed this song for that audition, It took me 3 weeks. I was very scared I must say. I hope I get in too (: Thanks again for the support.

Some solid ideas.

I'm not sure what exactly the requirements were for the piece to be submitted as an audition piece, but I'm going to go ahead and review this as a standalone song, so keep that in mind.

Okay, first... there needs to be some sort of percussion going on. A bass wouldn't hurt either. You can layer as many guitars as you like but it's still thin.

Every guitar sounds a bit thin to me. Some tone tweaking is definitely in order.

Some harmonies seem to fall enough out of tune to be uncomfortable to listen to.

Stopping the song and starting back up is kind of disheartening, especially without any fills from bass or drums.

It feels like you're trying to express as many ideas and riffs as you can, which makes the piece feel somewhat without aim.

Your rhythm riffs are pretty consistent in style and enjoyable and your leads maintain a pretty common thread, so that's a plus.

The transition into the clean section is handled fairly well, though I think I heard a couple foulups.

The sudden change in mood during the clean section was a little confusing to listen to, and I heard a few more parts where tuning seemed to be an issue, as well as a couple notes on the left lead that felt out of time.

Overall there are some really great ideas here and some solid composition for so many guitars, as well as some really solid playing, but I feel like it could have used a few more takes in places.

Gian responds:

Very good review, thank you very much. This was a 20 minute recording, with my computer and a bad quality chatting mic. Sounds really weird sometimes, and It actually sounds better live. I just made this to show an idea of what it really is. Ill make the final version soon, with everything as perfect as I can. (: Thank you again.
