This is a song I had stowed away in my library for the longest time. I decided to dig it up because I am sincerely curious to see what you all think about it.

Is this song playable on guitar? Probably not. But, that didn't stop me from making it as zany as possible. I hope you guys enjoy.

Also, if somebody could make a .mp3 of this song using the .mid I provided and post it as a reply to this thread so that everyone can find it, I would appreciate it.

EDIT: Reposted the actual song and took down the false one. Sorry to anyone who sat through what I had posted before.

  • I have heard a lot of your music and have noticed a lot of things that are somewhat your signature. This piece was alright but I feel that you can move your music to the next level. 

    The good thing is that your harmonic language is expanding, just be a little but its expanding. 

    My main critic is that your rhythmic language is so monotonous. Its almost all straight eighth notes or straight sixteenth notes. The only variation is the triplet figure in the second guitar, though that quickly becomes swallowed up due to it being a ostinato. I like that you brought out the melody in the mix but if you didn't do that it would just sound like a wash of notes. 

    Other than that, its a good piece, but I think its time to really take your music to the next level. 

    UPDATE: now that I listened to the correct file, a lot of what I said before still stands, minus the triplet pattern being swallowed up. 

  • my one comment. DEAR GOD THE TUNING. DEAR GOD. THE. TUNING. DEAR GOD. THE TUNING. (basically expect no one to play this, make a transposed version for real tuning :v )

  • Drop-C is a real tuning though; it's D standard with the top string tuned down 2 half-steps =/

    I suppose I could transpose this for standard tuning, seeing how the drop-tuning isn't really necessary. I wrote this song with my metal-head friends in mind who almost always play in a drop-tuning.

    "The Forever Song" for Guitar Trio in F# Minor

  • oh, okay, I was not aware that that type of tuning existed. It's definitely a weird tuning for me to look at. Just be forewarned, don't drop too much on acoustic instruments, and if you are writing in this tuning, just make sure to give the guitarists adequate time :v
