  1. Here's a WIP of a techno-ish song called "Too Good For You" I did.
  2. Thanks. You're correct, I did use fake guitars, but in the final I'll use real one's. Also, are the drum samples in themselves bland, or is it the actual drum part?
  3. Here's a metal remix of "Flash in the Dark" from Megaman 9. It's very much a work-in-progress though now, but I'd like critique on how I can make it better. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=1127019&songID=10114864
  4. Here's an original anime style song I wrote. Comments and critique would be good. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=1127019&songID=10090167
  5. Check out some of my original compositions here. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=1127019&content=music Tell me what you think of them.
  6. Not much to say here, this is an orchestral remix of Cutman's theme. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=761857&songID=8935521
  7. A remix of the Champion Theme from Pokemon Crystal, tested on real GBA hardware. Please note this was made for a fan remake, so it's meant to be looped. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WhagnIhR7w
  8. Well I might upload MP3. But yeah, it's more of an arrangement, not supposed to be a full fledged remix.
  9. A remix of the Rival Battle Theme from Pokemon GSC. It's incomplete. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypjDaLPC-ds
  10. Cool thanks for the advice. Well all that needs to be done to see what I did is to listen to the original GBC version. The tones different and most of the background instruments are as well. But what are these wrong notes? If you're talking about the background notes, those are intentionally different from the original. However, if there are any problems with the main melody tell me. But yeah, might add some variation.
  11. I did a Natioanl Park remix for a fan remake of Pokemon Crystal, it's not done yet but you can listen to it here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KS5B0-rC8Bo
  12. nope a different one, it's called Liquid Crystal. Not my project, I just do remixes for it.
  13. Here's a remix of the Pokemon Crystal Gym Leader Battle Theme that I tested on real GBA hardware. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK9koTcTi0U This is for a fan remake of Gold/Silver/Crystal which is going to a hack of Fire Red. For that reason, it has to loop.
  14. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=761857&songID=7295435 A rock version of Cherrygrove I did. Playing needs work, basically because I played the lead without really having a backing track, which is why the rhythm guitar is off. But yeah, tear me apart, give me your worst.
  15. I did an orchestral remix of route 12 from Pokemon R/B/Y. Here it is.... http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=761857&songID=6120497 Critique is appreciated.
  16. Yeah, it really comes down what's good for you. For instance me, I'm the type of guys who just thinks up a melody in my head and starts playing, but you do the whole chord thing, which is okay because that's your way. I was just saying that through my experience scales have helped me get better at lead guitar. Especially the blues scale, since most professional artists improvise on that scale for solos.
  17. I came here to enlighten a rookie guitar player not to argue over someones misconceptions of my post.
  18. Like I said though, if you're looking to play rock, metal or popular music knowing that stuff probably won't help because it can be done with power chords. However, if you're planning to get into jazz or even classical you'll actually need to know all the minor chords, the diminished chords and all that to play the music. Then again, chords are also good if you're into music theory. Funk bands might also require you to learn a few chords. Like my guitar teach taught me chords and all that but it never really helped me get good. I didn't really start getting good until I just started getting faster and faster at scales and started to learn how to hammer on and pull off. Had dude just practiced scales with me, it would of helped a lot more.
  19. As a guitar player, I'm going to be truthful with you man, learning chords isn't really necessary to get good. As for scales, you should practice those to get faster and faster at your playing. If you want to get good at soloing and improvisation, look up the blues scale and practice the hell out of it, you'll be able to do killer solos by simply learning to improvise on that one scale. Reason I say chords won't help you much, is that most professional rock, metal and pop music, doesn't really use chords. Although if you're looking to get into jazz guitar you'll NEED to know chords. Also, if you're going to get into more acoustical guitar music or classical guitar, knowing chords will help. Other than that, learning all those basic chords really won't help, as most rock and metal music, use power chords. Basically, if you're just looking to learn mainstream music, knowing chords isn't necessary.
  20. I did a metal mix of Cutman's theme from the original Megaman. It's what Cutman's theme would be if someone remixed it into a darkish type of Metal. Anyway here it is... http://www.soundclick.com/bands/songInfo.cfm?bandID=761857&songID=5875239 Comments and critique are welcome. If it sucks just say so. Remember, play the hi-fi version, lo-fi doesn't work.
  21. I did a remix of 'Objection' from Phoenix Wright. Here it is... http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandID=711130 Make sure to click lo-fi.
  22. This is a metal mix of the introduction stage to the not so well known NES game Ganbare Goemon 2. If it sucks, don't be too hard, I'm new to remixing. Anyway, here it is, comments and criticism would be appreciated: http://www.gamingw.net/pubaccess/46009/goemon2.mp3 The lead was intended to be on guitar, but I couldn't find a decent distortion guitar soundfont.
  23. Definitely learn the blues scale, that's great for improvising, and writing solos. As with any string instrument scale, once you know the basic "formation" you can move the scale up to any note.
  24. Anyone know where I can find a good string ensemble sample? I can't seem to find one that sounds realistic enough.
