Hello. Im new in this kind of contests, it seems to be a cool place to show my music. Tons of great musicians around. My song is about a dark side of me. I wrote this song when i was having a hard time on my life and this had a strong impact on me. Everything changed for me since that moment. Its a ballad....maybe a heavy prog ballad. I hope it represents for you what im trying to xplain. Verga.

very well put together. There were some nice little offbeats on the drums. Very impressive and melodic. Great entry.

Once more thanks everybody. Theres a lot of Petrucci on my playing on this one, but im also a big fan of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Steve Morse, Michael romeo, Gary Hoey, Andy Timmons, Nobuo Uematsuo:icon_peac , and the classical guitarist John Williams. When i recorded this song was on a time i was obsesed with Dream Theater...still i am but not that much:jam: Even if this song is a progballad i think you can feel the passion on it. Im glad you guys like it :thumbup:

I can definitely hear the DT influence on this. The piano sounds great. Are you a pianist as well?

Thanks man. It was not my intention to sound like DT at all. There are some songs i sound to much more like Vai or Satriani than John Petrucci. Damn, I wish i could sound like them!! ;) By the way, i made 4 songs that are conected to each other and "Distortion of reality" is the intro. Of course the main situation was my life. So originally it was one big song. I had to edit this 1st part for the contest because the 4 songs together are almost 15 or 16 mins lenght i think. If someone is interested i could upload them for you. :thumbup:
