Great work for a first project, rhythmically tight and nice guitar sounds and melodies! Programmed drums are really tough to pull off and on my first listen I think the drums need the most work to give better dynamics and expression, but the best thing about sequenced drums is you can always drop in a new version..
If this is a neophyte effort you have much promise and I'll look forward to what's coming next!
Thanks, this is greatly appreciated! The version you listened to is one I updated to use better drums, with DrumGizmo, so I hoped they sounded better already... but yes, making them sound more "human" is definitely one of the next challenges!
For reference, this is the track (now set to private, and replaced with the new one) I originally submitted, where drums were much more lackluster (you could hardly hear kicks for instance), and much more boring during the verse: https://soundcloud.com/lminiero/ill-be-back-for-you-demo-instrumental-version
