    comments welcome!

    done on a Warwick Streamer LX thru an SWR Grand Prix straight into ProTools LE. No compression, pitch correction, or time correction was used. Just one punch!

    Somehow it appears the 1st 2 or 3 seconds didn't make it. Damn computers!

    nice, but could have used a bit more rhythmic and melodic variation. also, a bit more dynamics would help, especially try to seperate the important notes from the "filler" notes.

    with a little more work and polish this will really come alive.

    PS: hope this doesn't come off as harsh/arrogant. i just wanted to keep it short.

    I agree.. I did find it a tad monotonous, but will a little work that piece could turn out really good.
  4. the part at :40 was pretty cool, the first 39 seconds could have been shortened...i like the song, but i think (i'm no genius musician nor am i any real critic) you would need some more variation if you are going to play it at that speed, or at least the main theme at the beginning, and whenever you replay the theme.

    overall, i liked it though
