New song I made with the new guitar Dragonfire Guitars Sent me.
EMG's and stuff like that.

Ok,
this song isn't meant to sound in key,
it's something called atonalism,
but I'd rather call this semi-atonalism...

Thanks

Joseph Vincent

Oh and like the last minute is me playing with a kill switch.

This isn't anything that's supposed to be taken in offense, but have you heard of atonalism and what the point of it is supposed to be?

Here's an example...

Or maybe even in better this...

Have you?

Atonalism still needs an underlying chord structure that supports the melodic parts, which Buckethead does. It doesn't advocate random, dissonant patterns, it's just using the chromatic scale instead of a diatonic scale. You still need to support the melodic parts with chords that make sense, but all I hear out of this are power chords. And parts like :40 and 1:05 honestly just hurt my ears, were those chords all the same intervals throughout? That's just a bad idea

You're not a terrible guitarist, but atonality still has structure. Read up on music theory before trying to do something like that again.

As also it has twelve tones.
It's actually very complex and hard to make something completely atonal.
As I've found.
Yes those parts are hurtful to the ear.
Thanks for your input.
