This song isn't half bad for me. It's not perfect, but not deserving of a 1 star. Yes, the vocals are off and yes, your guitar is not perfect, but you worked really hard and deserve more than a overall 2 star rating.
Appreciated, thank you Master-Awesome.
Where to begin...
It was a decent attempt at covering RHCP, but I think the main problem is your guitar sounds too tingy-sounding. You could probably use a string change or something.
As for the vocals, during the chorus the vocals were the wrong pitch and it really clashed with the guitar. Maybe try change the key of the song or something because it was really distracting and it took away from the song as a whole.
Keep practicing because I have faith in you!
Thank you for your direct criticism Zachary.
