    This is the lead.

    I cannot seem to find a compatabile rythym piece I have written.

    I agree about adding the instruments
    How the hell is this lead. I'm dying here. What would hendrix do?

    Thanks for your constructive input. Can you post some of your riffs so I can get some inspiration - I know I will never be as good as you - but please ... [\sarcasm]

    The lead in the piece that gave me inspiration for this piece - it's rather dull as well but works, mine doesnt work yet.

    Hendrix was a different style this is more mellow alternative/indie

    Its "instrumentalists" babe

    Don't think you'll get very far if you meet someone saying "oh so you're an instrumentist too"
    It's a joke off a TV show... FAIL

    Not all music has to be measured to Hendrix.

    Haha, that's crazy man! Wish I'd done that... it's hard for me to define when I'm playing though really as half the time I'm in my house I'm messing round on me guitar. :')

    It's always good to see bassists who can actually play their instrument rather than staying on the root note of the chord

    Nice one.

    OP: Good start. Needs other instruments then it would be very good. At the moment it's somewhere between good and okay. Love the ending. You just need other instruments added.

    Dislocator: not a very good bassist. Sorry, but I play bass and your technique is horrible - your song isn't standout either :/ I prefer OP's. Yours lacks originality and sounds like a song you get free with Windows... OP's reminds me of the type of music I heard when I was playing gigs out in NY - the underground post-punk revival clubs.
