I have no recording equipment, so I use GP6 to generate my songs. I wrote this song a few nights ago and finished it this morning. It is an acoustic guitar solo.


My previous critique

It's awesome to took most of my advice to heed. You've certainly improved, but let's see what you've done here in full.

The melody line is good as always, still a bit simple (which isn't a bad thing, don't get me wrong, it really works with the piece), and the rhythm works well, though it is repeated a tad throughout the whole piece. That break in the octave at 1 minute something caught me off guard, and I quite liked it, but it was the only part of the song that went that high, and the rest of the song is the same more or less in this sense.

Your phrasing is interesting. The entire song is divided into audible ideas (Idea 1 - Start of the song, Idea 2 - 19 seconds, Idea 2b - 23 seconds, Idea 2c - 31 seconds, Idea 3 (bridge) - 36 seconds and so forth), so the important part was to find a way to bridge them together. Idea 1 into idea 2 worked nicely, though when it went into idea 2b, it felt a bit abrupt. Into idea 2c, it was completely unexpected, in an interesting way, but I feel it completely changed the mood of the song briefly. The rest of the song works well, phrasing wise.

Instrumentalisation (I'm pretty sure that isn't a word and Instrumentation is the word I'm looking for, but I don't care :) ) is pretty obvious, seeing the only instrument is a classical acoustic guitar (though it is very hard to hear the difference between one and a steel string). I can't tell you how much better this would've sounded with some shifting dynamics on a real guitar (I play guitar also). I won't take off "marks" for that, but I'm just saying. I guess I can't say much about layering or mixing either, but they're mediocre, here on the track.

Well done with the track! If you ever buy a mic and mixer, shoot me a PM, I'd love to listen to more of your stuff in the future.

Pretty interesting.

For a guitar solo made from CP6, this is pretty neat. I like where you went with the tune, and it had nice movements. I play guitar in real life, so I can see the beauty in this.
