I got Shreddage 2 recently and have been playing around with it a bit. It sounds awesome, like a real guitar if you play it correctly. I came up with this today, which is another quick and rough attempt at intro music for a coworker's upcoming podcast series. I'm sure the final version will sound nothing like this.

Love the kick choice.
At first I thought it was kinda weird, but as song progressed more and more I found it more and more satisfying.
Also, love the guitar panning, fills the space perfectly. :D
On the other hand I feel like if the melody was outside that one octave it would be much more dynamic and interesting. (not counting the pinch harmonics)
(even though I do see that you're not aiming for anything complicated and/or perfect - I feel like I would do something similar too)
Funny thing though - this week I was also making some music for ending credits / intro etc. for a podcast that my friend's hosting, lol.
Great job overall FM. :)

Hey endK, thanks for the review!
I found the kick sample in Evolve R2. I liked the way it stood out in the mix, so I went with it.
The rhythm guitar panning is from a preset in Guitar Rig called 'Plexi Rotor Room.' I was going through the presets one-by-one and I liked the way that one sounded.
I'll try raising the melody (solo) by an octave and see how it sounds to me. That's a good suggestion, thanks.
That is funny that you're working on a similar project right now. I've been working for this one off and on for about 3 months now, though. So far it's been a pretty difficult project for me because I've been asked to make music in a style which I've never done before, some blues guitar. But it's a fun learning process, and thankfully the song is not needed for about 6 more months or so, so I've got time.
Thanks for listening and for the great feedback, endK. :)
