This is a three layer, partially improvised track done solely on my Lite Ash Telecaster.

These are the layers:

1. Chords arpeggiated in a celtic style and rhythm. The bridge pickup was used to give it's clear, sharp tone so that all of the notes can be heard.
2. Chords strummed to give the track a little more body. The neck pickup was used for it's thick, bassy sound.
3. A lead line improvised on the Mixolydian scale, just to dress it up a little. The bridge pickup and a slightly louder volume was used so that this layer's sound bleeds through the other layers.

Good, but not yet there.

I listen to the celtic genre a lot, should it be from others here on Newgrounds or the "pros" out there on the internet and while this is a good song, it makes me feel like it is missing something.

I might be wrong, but most of the celtic songs I listen to are either very peaceful or they make you want to dance. Yours is like inbetween those two categories. Personally, I prefer the more energetic ones.

I'll give you a 4/5 and a 8/10, because the effort was there, but to me, it feels like it is missing something. It is still a very neat song to listen to, you did a good job.

Thanks for the constructive criticism, there aren't many like you x)

To be honest, you almost certainly know more about celtic music than I do - I've heard no more than three songs in the celtic genre, one of them on a celtic harp which had a sort of mystical feel to it. I was trying to achieve that feeling here; just found a casual chord progression that sounded like it. But yeah you're probably right about celtic music being either peaceful or energetic :P

Thanks again, suggestions noted (Y)
