    @Ginsu: Holy shit, everything works together so well, Im loving it. Only modification I'll do to it would be to accentuate more the chugs at bar 66 (think about something like sec 0:40 in TesseracT's Concealing Fate part Five) for a more intense feel

    I decided to record that one, even though I'm not sure if it's finished or not ;)

    nope, in fact, it kinda fucked up my GP until I restarted my laptop :lol:


    BTW, I checked your song, loved the SOAD vibe I got in the first riff

    Oh, well glad you liked it. I still haven't gotten myself to finish it, especially as my 6-string is a "0-string" at the moment. :lol:

    Here's a start to a song me and my other band are writing. Really digging how the chorus came out. That lead part is pretty difficult to tap actually haha.

    This was one of those kinds of songs where I kinda just woke up with the intro riff in my head. Has that ever happen to anyone else? Like you'll just wake up with some kinda kickass riff in your head, it happens to me all the time and usually how most of my songs are created. Same thing happened with the first song I posted in this thread. The intro riff was something I woke up with in my head.

    Mkay, so I've written this Red Fang/Mastodon/kinda bluesy sludge inspired song. Only thing I'm unsure of is how to transition in to the sped up section. I think the section has a place in the song, I'm just not sure how to lead in to it. :scratch: Anywho, here it is:

    The fast part is very cool. Nice usage of the Zyglrox-tuning.

    @JEngel I really dug this piece, it had a cool vibe to it. It was an interesting way of using that tuning. I'm looking forward to hearing the finished version

    @kylendm I really enjoyed this one, it has a similar style of riffing as your previous songs but it feels happier. That first riff sounds heavy and kinda jolly. I feel like maybe it repeats too often though? The tapping bit at around bar 33 was really nice too

    Here's my main song idea I've been working on for the past little while. I'm indecisive on what to do after bar 44. Tell me what you guys think about that whole melodic bit

    Sup guys. Usually I don't post things that aren't either finished or at a point that I'm stuck in writing them, but I thought you guys might like this one.

    Also, maybe this thread needs another bump :shrug:

    Friedmann Isotropy.gp5

    Or, for anyone who can't open the above...

    Friedmann Isotropy.mid

    This composition is based off of a bit of a harmonic progression (as will become evident by the lack of melody...) which actually cycles through keys.
    Right now I'm not too sure what to do with it, but something should come to me and I'm open to suggestions (most likely involving a melody lol).

    The chord progression (basically) looks something like this, starting out in E major:

    I - iv - V - I - vi - II7 - V7 - i - (bVI) This chord in parenthesis is actually in the successive key, making the 'i' the 'iii' of said successive key.

    With more detail:

    Imaj7 (no 3) - iv-7 - Vmaj (no 7) - Imaj7 (no 3) - IV6/5 - V7alt/V (or biiiĀ°7) - V7 - bVI6/5 - (bVImaj7 (no 3))

    In E:

    Emaj7 (no 3) - A-7 - B - Emaj7 (no 3) - A6/5 - F#7b9 - B7 - C6/5 - Cmaj7 (no 3)

    So by following this progression, one modulates down a major third, and in this tune I did just that -- and repeated it, arriving back at the original key every 3rd time.

    Hey guys, here's a song I've been working on for a bit and I'm really liking the direction it's going. It's not finished but I figured I'd get some input from you guys. I guess it'd be considered djent, but I try to incorporate different things. I'm pretty new to writing my own music so I'm still figuring out things about my own style. This is just the drums and main guitar part but I plan on adding bass, ambiance and leads later. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Uploaded the midi instead of the tabs, my bad. Also, I don't know if tux guitar works with guitar pro, but it's what I like to use, and it's also free lol.

    Thought I'd bump this. It was a cool thread for a while with a lot of neat ideas.
