Music Composers Unite!

hi there,

i'm self-learned musician and (inexperienced) composer.

have study many books & tack-works from different сenturies.

the books tell me that i need professional critique for my music.

it's the only way for growing.

so,

wanna share here my new short trio.

i played all instruments by myself.

it's not masterly, i haven't illusions ))

Many good elements observable in there already. I like the unity in harmonic scheme combined with the variety in melodic treatment as the two main emerging characteristics. Obviously there is the question "where do we go from here?"

My advice on a first acquittance would be: Just immerse yourself in the guitar world in general and its long-long history. Listen to a lot of guitar music of every school, classical, jazz, rock, folk, flamenco and Latin American, and associate with it your thoughts and feelings. It will give you very many hints of how you as a guitarist/composer should proceed.

Welcome to the forum!

oh! it is fantastic place!

i have two brilliant ideas what to do while i practice next themes for recording.

and i saw white-head eagle that float trought my lane.

it's a sign )))

fairly wanna clear some details from yours input.

but i have fear abt. my english. it's can kill anyone...

so, need a time for preparing some intelligible.

thanks a lot!

i suspect, there is a unconformity between melody and guitars opportunity.

it will be better to use some other instrument for upper voice.

but only guitar i can play for now and i haven't other musicians around this time.

so, it's great idea to learn abt guitar world.

it's must give me ability to write more guitar-oriented music.

can you share to me your favorite choice for classical/flamenco/latin music?

many thanks!

Just check this page devoted on the 19th century Italian guitarist/composer Ferdinando Carulli. It is in my opinion as good as any for an introduction to the classical guitar world (that's for starters only, there are thousands of pieces on youtube for any style of guitar music that I've mentioned)

Have fun!

the following is one begginners study in G, easy to learn from notation or tab

it is happy to find here a mixing comments!

normally i do some HQcut for effects (left or right channel).

imho it helps to set effect more properly.

this time all effects was cutted in left channel.

so, i have left more dry, right more spaced.

i find it good for mono.

will think abt it next time.

yes, the middle trio has kitchen sound.

i have good contrast with slapping 4th delay in first part.

and one more thing, i don't know why i can do more space here )))

it's in 6/8 208bpm.

lower guitar has echo on 144ms (1/8).

upper guitar set in small room for 3/8 (430ms).

glue hall for 6/8 on both guitars.

if you have some other decision, pls share it to me.

have a good weekend!

It's actually really good. Sounds solid, good approach to delays and panning/virtual space. It feels like overall it's just slightly too unbalanced in favour of the left channel. At times it sounds like the signal is clipping, can't tell if it's intentional distortion or your levels are set too high. I'd add a bit more reverb to the more classical middle section to give it a bit of space and ambience.
