[80s Rock] Valley of a Distant Dream

By Mortistar on April 8, 2018 10:58 pm

Goddamnit, I missed a week! Time for a clean slate, and I guess nothing better than trying new genres. I've been really influenced by 80s hits recently, and I've been trying my hand at a few of Steve Vai's songs on guitar (even if they're hard as balls) I had a vague go at writing my own lil' piece. It's a bit shabby, seeing as I was working on this for a measly 2 hours, but I hope I got the vibe across heart Thanks for listening and tell me what you think! See you next week ^.^

Yeah, you really got the vibe across!

Those detuned leads and reverberated snares really hit the right spot

Unlucky 13, huh? I think you more-than-made-up for it. Love that slightly detuned synth, the subtle pads, the punchy, spaced out drums, and of course the guitar.

Sick track. Love that guitar!

Great guitar tone and drums scream 80s. Good job!

Awesome.

That guitar is genuinely great. Good job capturing the style my man. Week 13 seems to have hit people hard for some reason, so I wouldn't stress about it, lol. Keep it up heart heart heart heart

Nice guitar lead there! Great tone, definitely in the style of Steve. smile

I see I'm not the only one who did 80s did week, though you covered a different side of it!

Great work, nailed the guitar.  Especially for 2 hours!

Cheers heart Guitar Rig truly is a lifesaver when it comes to getting a decent tone, as my physical amp is terrible
