You haven't been on in ages, welcome back!

First thing, all of you guys should be facing the camera! Even if this is a home recording, it looks bad.

Gotta work on your timing, or whoever played that main melody.

Drummer guy has some good ideas, but then it just sounds like he's purpousfully hitting everything randomly on purpose.

To make it even better, you need to make the group sections much longer than just a phrase repeated, so add more melody than just that one you have.

Even though it's cool for everyone to have their individual parts, you need to plan them, plan how many bars, KEEP IN TIME, and definitely have backing!!! Otherwise your solos won't be complimented at all.

ALWAYS make sure the basis and drummer are as TIGHT as possible, it's so important otherwise you'll all just fall apart.

This sounds like fun, but in all honesty, that's all it sounds like, if you want it to be taken seriously keep working on it and definitely pay some heed to what I wrote! :D

thnx jazz :D

yeh we really needed a new post up something original so i said to the band, "ok lets just jam, lay down something new and improvised". The main riff was jus something that came across my mind. :D

Yeh i noe it wasn't as tight as we'd like it to be, but were still a young band, and we desperately need a singer...too bad all of u don't live in sydney..........AUSTRALIA :D
