Ambitious yes dude so big applause just for that. Craig's spot on with his mix observations. I'll add that the 1st part could do with stereo separation on the two guitars to distinguish them more. I see MR has also said the same! Drums (or lack of them) are main culprit so follow what Craig says and maybe get a few little drum rolls in there too. Hee hee bees buzzing bit is cool!!! Thumzup for most sections of the track and the ambition. Will I ever get those 10 minutes back LOL.
This is ambitious. Some of the transitions between the various sections aren't as smooth as they could be. As a guitarist starting out I understand the temptation to mix the guitars loud. Mix is really the main problem here. Drums are way too quiet and thin, bass isn't even discernible. There is some pretty good programming going on here but it's all getting lost under the guitars. Some parts also where the tuning of the guitars sound like they might be out slightly. The clean section from 3:45 the mix is better but the drums still too quiet. The 'heavy' section that follows sounds like a couple of bees buzzing around in a jam jar while someone bashes on a biscuit tin. All sense of power it could have is wasted by a lame mix. All of these issues are mix problems and if they are sorted you will have yourself a pretty decent track here. Rated anyway for the ambition and effort you've obviously put in to this. Craig.
Immediately rings sweet in these ears! Very cool what is going on here! Sounds like your feeling it then playing it. Or playing it while feeling it -and that's real music in my book! I can can feel your heartfelt emotion in this song. I would like to offer my opinion for what it's worth. That being: if you seperate your instrumentation a bit more (like you did at the 3:40s mark) it will make all stand out and shine as it should -it's just a mix thing and believe me that I know how hard it is in mix. You have everything going on here and all it needs is some more time in the mix area to really make this beauty shine! I don't think the lenghth on this is a problem seeing how you have seperated everything well as it rolls like a storyline in all it's differentiation! Very impressive what you have accomplished here. No easy task to keep something fresh -especially an instrumental rock song almost 10 minutes in length! Awesome work -Mike
Excellent track Jeff, I love all the imaginative changes, themes and awesome playing, both guitar/s and drums, I like the cymbal hits a lot too!
This is cool, Jeff! Appropriately titled, too! The drums work nicely with your guitar. I enjoyed going through the different layers on this track. Keep up the great work man, your originality is refreshing. Also like that you are providing more info on your uploads and I just noticed you put up a bio - cool! I dig what you've been up to - this one is quite a piece! Your descriptions through each area reminds me of 2112 by Rush. If you eventually decide to add lyrics to this - WOW! Great work!
thanks for your comments i can't hear your track as im have problems with my sound card but will listen when i sort it out
What a journey this is. You really have a feel for bringing in the listener into your world. Each passage has a unique mood that one can easily relate to in terms of melody intrigue, and intriguing it is. The further in you go here the more you don't want to leave. Your work is appreciated and fills the senses.
A very ambitious project...10 min into 3 movements....all based on a bicycle...following Sum 41...talk about a challenge...the 2m section reminded me of a 007 sequence or some other thriller. Drums are still way back in the mix, but I can hear them on occasion. Liked the panned guitar parts...moving things around...3:40 evolves into a real sweet change. I like how you threw so many styles into this piece. Shows your ability to create using guitar only.

My name is Jeff Buchanan and I am 15 years old. I mainly create instrumental music, with the electric guitar, but started creating a track with Terry Wigmore on the vocals. I’ve only been playing guitar for about two years, but in the time I’ve fallen in love with it and I wish I started earlier and started recording about a year ago.
I originally only posted my work to Youtube and never really got an audience. As time went by I realized I also needed a place that was designated for people to show off their original music. So after some Google searching, I discovered Mp3 unsigned. I signed up, and posted my introduction on the forum. My track Drop got a handful of good reviews from people. As of right now, I still don’t really have an audience, but maybe I’ll obtain one someday.
I’ve always used GarageBand on my Mac as recording software. It’s not much but it’s enough to get by. My original recording equipment consisted of me placing my amplifier on a table to the left of my laptop and recording from that. This is where I came up with my artist name Left Ear Bleed. After making two tracks with bad quality, I was able to get a zoom g3 pedal that can record directly to the computer. As time went on, I discovered new things about recording and tried to apply them to my work
Hope you guys like my music J
