Alright fellas, just been messing about on various music programmes, and have finally come up with something I like, my first full-ish length mp3. Basically I came up with the main riff on my broken guitar (it's only got the top three strings on it) and expanded from there.

The link is;

So I'd like a critique please, if you wouldn't mind. Although not created for game music, it would be easily transferrable I think due to its loopable nature.

Oh yeh, feel free to use it however you want, too.

Nice but I wish there was more of a melody. I didn't really get why the drums suddenly picked up at the end either. But its still some fairly nice background music

I wanted to go for a big crescendo ending, I had an idea of what I wanted in my head, but it didn't quite appear in the music. I wanted like a wall of sound, all the instruments piling on each other.

And the melody thing, I wanted it specifically melody-less - I didn't want a lead instrument as such, I just wanted a beat that built up and built up.
