This is my first track submitted to the audio portal, it's kinda rough and not really that good. I recorded it all through a USB wire connected to my line 6 wah pedal with tuner, and it didn't really turn out that great. Also, the way i planned the song out was for it to have a heavy part towards the middle, since I play mostly metal. when i tried to record said heavy part and i palm-muted, all i got was the weird wah sound. I'm not sure if that's the way I'm recording though the pedal, or the program (mixcraft acoustica 5). If you have any ideas please help me out. If I can find a way to record the heavy part, I'll upload it with the rest of this. please vote and comment with advice. thanks.

Interesting idea, production needs some work

There are some interesting riffs in there, I particularly liked the one that started around 1:45
I appreciate that you may have intentionally kept it as a guitar-only piece, but I want to hear some other instruments in your work soon! Get a kit in there.
When it comes to your guitars, if you're gonna get really serious about recording, I would seriously recommend investing in a Line 6 Pod or Digidesign box. My Pod improved my guitar recording quality hugely, and remains the best thing I've ever purchased.
Also, are you using a metronome? If not, you really should get into doing so. It just makes recording, double-tracking, re-recording, mixing, everything easier.
Good job though, I hope to hear more from ya.

thanks for the kind words man, it means a lot. I wanna get a Pod, but i don't have a lot of spare cash kicking around. I spent it on a channel switch/wah pedal board for the band I play in. And I intended to put a kit in, I just couldn't figure out how, what software do you use when you record? It might make thing easier for me to program drums in. I might sell my old squire guitar and amp to get some money for a pod. If it makes that big of a difference. I doubt I'll record anything again before I get a better sound, and I'll probably re-record this with the heavy part I intended to add. Thanks a lot for the kind words.
