Inspired by @fattboyzz ’s thread on posting jam tracks, I decided I would put this up for all of you to critique. I can learn to play other people’s stuff, but I have always struggled creating my own. This is something I did pretty quick with only a couple takes and very little editing. Honestly it was more about relearning how to use Reaper than anything else. But the result is very similar to most things I play. It ends up sounding very amateurish. Not sure why? The chord progression is A C D. I know that shouldn’t work, but it sounded cool so I went with it. So my question to you guys and gals is this. What am I doing wrong? What would make this sound more professional? I have thick skin, and know my skills are limited, so please be honest. I want to learn from this. Both my playing and recording are on the table for discussion!
