Here's a song by my band Chairman Mouse. I'm the singer and guitarist.


I'm tired of waking up to your lie
I miss the times when we always smiled
I hate the breaks in between the holidays
Because I'm always sad anyway

Get out of my way

You're an illusion of the mind
Manipulating me all the time
You claim to love my sweet voice
But it's just cacophonous noise

Darling, wanna come around?
Darling, wanna skip town?
Darling, don't contemplate
Darling, don't stagnate

Do you wanna know?

I found the whole song pretty good. The vocals were off pitch on several occasions. The lead/rythm guitar was out of tune on some strings.The bass and rythm guitar were off from the drums also every now and again. ( this all can be eliminated with more practice and time) I wasn't a fan of the slow random noted solo. Here are a list of things you should try to learn, ( they take a bit of time so as i tell my students, keep practising them and they will fall into place.)

String skips
Altitudes- arpegio sweep with tap
double handed taps/ single handed
hammer ons/pull offs ( assuming you are already familiar with them)
Harmonics( assuming as well)
Alternate picking( also assuming)
The following modes and corresponding scales-ionian, dorian, phrygian lydian, mixolydian, aeolian, locrain.

Seeing as you are only 16 i can see your band becoming something quite spectacular in the future if you keep working at it.

Sawdust responds:

I find it kind of insulting that you're telling me to learn legato techniques, of all things, but I guess I'll take your word for it, haha.

As for the other stuff, well I've been meaning to learn new scales and such, so I guess it's about time I did.

Thanks for taking the time to review this!
