    Default My First Instrumental Ever. Can I get some feedback?

    Hey, what's up?
    I recently made this instrumental on my iPad, and I fell in love with it. Haha. I love music, all music. I hope to get some great feedback on this. It's like an acid jazz, electronica type instrumental.
    Here it is:

    Hope you enjoy, it'll be greatly appreciated if anyone could comment on it or something.
    Thanks in advance.

    1st guess: this is Aardvark pulling a prank. Nice try.

    2nd possibility: this is genuine.

    Hey! Welcome to the Womb!
    Now for my comments: I truly enjoyed those few seconds before I hit play. I'm sorry to say it was all downhill after that. All 36 seconds of it. I clicked a bit further but it was more of the same.
    We obviously haven't been given the same definition with regard to "acid-jazz, electronica instrumentals".
    I wish I could encourage you but I'm afraid if I do that Aardy is going to come out and wink "Gotcha!"

    Just put the guitar closer to the amp, maybe add some more gain.

    In the future You should refer to your music as "soundscapes".
    I.E. "would you like to hear something I did, I make "soundscapes"."

    This will result in a better prepared, and more open listener.

    And I'm only half kidding, the other half is dead serious.

    Air finger quotes when using the term "soundscapes" optional.

    I don't think so.

    If it was Aardy, I assume he'd just use the name of whatever tranny hooker he's currently grunting and sweating on top of in S.E. Asia.

    Oh wait...

    I swatted my neck before I realized that it wasn't a mosquito, it was the "music".
    Man! You have GOT to try a hit of this RANGE SUNSHINE!

    Never underestimate the amount of contempt a failed musician has for those of us who are still trying.
    If the party's good enough, you can actually suck to a remarkable degree.

    There's really no end to what you'll do to entertain us.

    If I had a nickle for every project I have struggled to finish that ended up not panning out, I'd have a bag full nickles. I would then use that bag of nickles to beat selected former band members. ~BlackieC
