Love ''rainy days & cigarettes'' feels like watching over my big window on a rainy day. So perfect. Same goes for Female.

Welcome back from the dead, Original Music Compositions thread! Why no one posts here anymore? No one knows...

Let me start with something I made earlier this year. It was my first time trying to record one of my songs and I had to make do with crappy connections/effects. I added cheap-sounding simulated drums to my guitar recording and this was the result.

My account was sort of an inside joke, but yeah. Just ignore that part :-]

I don't know why, but the first part sounds kinda out of rhythm up until the first break. As if you constantly play in between the drum hits. Have you tried leaving out the drums until the first break? The rest is absolutely beautiful.

I appreciate the compliment man! Thanks a lot!

Your ears sense the truth... The site I compiled everything on shifted part of the guitar recording at the start ever so slightly. I couldn't figure out how to fix it without rerecording it (and by that time I had forgotten my tone/amp settings since I recorded it long before I found that website). It's a bit annoying to hear, but it was my first attempt at making a quality-sounding song/riff. I have literally hundreds of guitar recordings over the past 5 years that I might one day try to make "good copies" of (with better equipment/tools hopefully).

No worries, I don't give out compliments easily when it comes to music :D So you must've earned it ;)

Maybe you could just pull up the guitar recording in audacity and just add a little bit of an empty extra space to the beginning so you can time the drums better? I think that could potentially be a simple solution, but I don't know what file type your recording has so it might not load in audacity.

:D :stupid: :thumb:

That would probably work. I'm no pro with audacity, but I think I'll get back to this song when I prepare my next song. Thanks!
