I really love this reverb setting for the background/rhythm guitar. It's like a fuzzy wave of.... fuzzyness.

Setup for this one:
Sequenced drum hits. I'm using a different kit this time.
Same VST for the bass.
Three (or four depending how you look at it) real guitar tracks. One centered reverb-tastic track with no dry signal for airy, open string chords. One centered melody/solo track with delay on it. One crunchy chord track that's introduced near the end doubled and panned left and right.
That's it.

And Again...

I must repeat that I would rock out with you any day. You have serious chops on the guitars. I imagine several of your influencers would feel put to shame if they were to hear this. Great work :D

Cornilious responds:

Haha on the chops. I was trying to take it easy for the lead/melody thing. It's really melodic because of my classical background. Maybe I'll upload something crazy. Odds are I won't but maybe. Anyway, hopefully some acoustic stuff in open D tuning (DADGAD) will be up soon.

Take your own advice

And add some vocals!

Other than that, all the instruments went well together, but it would be nice if you brought out the guitar some more, and I would suggest putting it so that it won't mix in with the vocals.

Also, there's something about the intro I like, but can't quite point it out. Anyway, nice job.

Not bad

It needs to be played with the bass turned up, as it makes the track sound so much better. It's quite a shame that the guitar is so quiet, with the effect over the top almost drowning it out in a sort of U2 "the Edge" kind of sound to it.

I can certainly hear extracts from "With or Without You" coming through this one, every now and again, but it's a very nice and original piece.

Perhaps a few additional riffs and even some vocals would round this tune out nicely, as it's quite a sound, but needs something else, just to give it that extra lift.

Cornilious responds:

I killed the dry signal on that guitar to make it sound that way, so I guess it's a personal preference as to whether it sounds good that way. I was looking for a "lost in a washing machine" sound.
I really liked the guitar melody on this one, so I stuck as to what to do if I added vocals. Should I just put the melody guitar a little lower in the mix so that it won't clash with the vocals or what?

Looking forward to your input!

I thought it was pretty good.

It sounded like something that I had heard before, but I just couldn't put my finger on it because I'm not that good at remember names and what not. I think the instruments were done rather well in this submission, but the overall feel that I get from this submission is that it's kind of empty.

Such as it needs vocals in it. Other than that it's very relaxing and a good quality song overall. Like I said it just seems a bit empty.

Cornilious responds:

Vocals, vocals, vocals!
They will be added sometime, hopefully soon.

Let down by the guitar.

I really liked the beat, but that was what redeemed it thee most points. The guitar went downhill pretty much from the moment it came in. It was far too screechy, and, although on the last 2 tracks I said it was too quiet, but I think it was too loud this time.

The intro, before the guitar came in, was really nice and reminded me of Radiohead, but, as I said earlier, the guitar let it down.

I kinda like the outro too, it's quite original and interesting.

Cornilious responds:

When I add vocals I think I'll put the melody/solo guitar lower in the mix.
