Not too sure on where to share this post but i would love it if you guys checked out my most recent guitar playing. This is my original track Separate off my instrumental metal Ep Together.

If there is a specific form i should post this in, tell me and i will move it to there. Thanks!

I thought your track was going to be sort of "Pink Floydish" ...until 0.39 mins or so.

Sounds great with admirable playing. I just can't comment much more as I still back in the Pink Floyd "era"

Congrats on having EP!

I enjoyed your playing. Very melodic, tasteful, laid back when it needs to be and heavy hitting when called for. Catchy tune, and exactly how I wish I could play :D

Thanks for sharing!

Not my cup o' tea, but your playing is very precise and articulate.
I think you need your solo bits to be more up front in the mix....they almost get lost in the very elaborate backing.
Nicely done.

I stopped at the 44 second mark. Sorry, but I can't stand that type of music.

We do have a Music section. No one is going to be too upset you posted this here but that is likely the best place for your music video.

Thanks so much for the reply! I appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately its not at all pinkfloydish aha sorry for the misleading intro. And thanks, the EP was entirely produced, mixed and so on.. by me and its doing well!

No problem. We all have our likes and dislikes. It keeps us from getting bored.

Just to be clear..I did listen to the entire track. No need to apologize for the "misleading intro"...that was just my interpretation. Does some of your metal playing contain elements of baroque/classical styling?
Sorry, I'm (very obviously...LOL) not familiar with metal music.

We have another forum member, @amagras , that released an EP recently. http://andreimartinezagras.webs.com/
It might be of interest to you. Like you, he is a skilled player and musician in general.

No apology necessary. The fact that I don't care for that type of music doesn't detract from the fact that you play it very well. My hat's off to anyone who can successfully compose, play, and record original music. I know, I've tried that myself, and my music puts people to sleep.

Ya of curse, i try to incorporate alot of different element into my tracks. Ive been studying musical theory all my 19 years of living, so i like to make things more complicated and interesting. For an example, the first half of the track is in 7/8 time, then its switches to 4/4/ then to 9/8 then to 6/4 at the end. I made time signature changes throughout the entire EP. And ya thanks for share this, he is a fantastic jazz fusion player. i checked him out on bandcamp, Amazing work for sure!

I admire the pure skill and the complex arrangement and time signatures there. It feels a bit mechanical to me... Like a lot of these tend to Needs some organic-ness something to break it up ... something like vai would add sound effects or goofy voices to maybe keep the listener engaged and help tell a story - does that make sense?
