(seeking advice) Dusk 2.4


Author Comments

I do not have the means to record actual guitar and I am seeking advice on how to make the guitar sound more natural in this

I have been using Guitar Pro 6 to notate but the rasgueado (and everything else) sounds terribly unnatural

I am seeking any advice on how to make this output in a way that sounds less god awful

also I'm not really happy with the ending, I wrote a lot of different endings and sort of settled on this moving thru the 4ths thing but I didn't even want the waltz section to last as long as it did and you'll note I did a lot of things to move away from just having a bum-tiss-tiss type rhythm

if you're capable of giving me some composing advice that would be appreciated and I would gladly send you the sheet music for reference

Hey, nice track, I liked the progression and rhythm. Contemplative. You definitely have the start to something cool here.
You will probably never get VST gutiars to sound perfectly real so maybe stick to piano for now and when you get a guitar yourself and a recording set up, you could do it for real and escape the whole situation.

For the last section, it kind of comes apart, my suggestion would be to reuse something from before but add a few tweaks to show it's moved up in intensity and then end on a satisfying chord. I can't name the chord for you but you'll know it when you hear it.

Finally, don't expect every track to be good, but do publish them. NG isn't for selling, it's for sharing.
