First off... You can host the file here instead of trying to drive your play counts up somewhere else. Also there's kind of a policy that if you want feedback, you give some. I believe you're rather new here... So maybe start hanging out a bit?

Did you even listen to the track? Maybe you should listen to the music before you assume everyone is a sellout like yourself

Wow, this spiralled out of control fast. LOL

Guitar junkie: he can host his file anywhere he wants.

Smithereenmusic: maybe you should realize this forum has about 7 active members. You'd better be kind to them.

Yeah if you're looking to make new fans here this place is kinda small anymore... I'd suggest just auto messaging people on twitter. As for an honest critique... Playing was kind of rushed feeling, delay was a little up front in the mix, the overdrive was rather harsh (could have been the crappy Sound Cloud enocoder) overall passable performance for a bar band on 2 for 1 night. I do retract my statement about uploading here, since it is a cover song. Cheers.

Jared, sorry to see your attitude. If you want to talk about music by all means do so, this forum could really use some good musical and gear related discussion. So far you have only posted two threads and most recently you've kinda gone all Eric Cartman. Coming in posting a few Sound Cloud links asking for a critique of the song, and not offering any value to the rest of the forum. Check the vast body of work here, enjoy some of the other music, maybe collab with a few people, heck... What kinda guitar/amp was this? Tell us more about the song.

Positive? Like Karma?

Your first post was about your 'EP', yet linked to your main artist page, whilst asking for critique. I don't believe you got any feedback because you linked to such a large amount of music asking for a critique yet at this stage, haven't offered anything back to the site.. Sure it's great to get feedback, but it's also good to give some in return.. which you haven't.

If you want critique, maybe ask for an individual song? I've always seen this forum as a source for songs just before they are finalised for a release. You're asking for people to critique your album for free..

There is proof you haven't listed to any of the music on this site.. or to guitar junkie's.. (Caleb, that's me giving a compliment to your music Very Happy )

-----

In regards to the song you posted above. It sounds like you've done some heavy EQ on the drums to bury them in the mix and IMHO they aren't sitting right.

Additionally, you've got some phase issues, or you have some funky panning. Example of it is just after the 50 second mark.

Aside from that, nice playing.

OK...

Drums are weak, bring them up. It isn't all about the guitar..

Covers aren't allowed here, I know, I've tried. So it kind of takes the where to post argument to a moot point level.

Moot point argument I tells ya!!

Covers are allowed, just not allowed to be uploaded to THIS site.. Uploading them to other sites and then linking from here IS allowed.

Can't upload covers to RP. Can link on RP to covers hosted elsewhere.

Got it.

All seven of us. Laughing

Have I arrived too late to this post to go fuck myself? I haven't had a real good go fuck myself for a couple of years and I am ready for a good ass reaming. Mr. Green

If you want to record a cover it is an easy process and very inexpensive to get the mechanical license depending on what you are going to do with the song. http://www.songfile.com/

He sounded presidential enough to me, sad. Mr. Green

I just want to say what a pleasure it has been working with you all. I've made many friends during my time here and enjoyed.... Ooops, sorry, wrong speech. Carry on.
