How do you guys find work in the field? What sort of steps have you professional recording artists taken to succeed? Someone had suggested crowdfunding to me, another a custom website featuring examples of your works. But well, I'm at a loss, really.
This is for the nearly completed Valkyrie Profile Death Metal album. It's a section of less than a minute. It requires an arpeggiated chord and a solo on top of it. Neither part is difficult. A high beginner or a low intermediate player could play it. You get your name on my sweet-ass Valkyrie Profile Death Metal album if you help out. I'll provide tabs and an audio sample. Send a private message or reply here if you want to join the album. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Perhaps if you try and shorten it? The middle section made it a bit long.. since this middle section it's more or less a repetition of the first part. When I jumped straight from 1:50 to 3:17 it felt fresh, love the stuff from 3:17 and onwards.
You could also try to have the more gentle opening part come back again, after 5:17.. instead of fading it out. Try and add the part starting at 0:33 straight after 5:17. It makes a nice subtle change in "pace". And then fade it out from there.
The double kick drum every other beat, do something about that. Makes it a bit too predictable.
Regarding songs which are 5+ minutes, I think all my coming game music remixes will be around 5 and up to 10-12 minutes long.. Not looking forward to reviews, if there will be any
