Mods Can Compose, Too, Y'know

In the spirit of things I thought I'd add my one and only concerted effort of recent times so here's a tapping piece that I wrote in about 30 minutes a while back. It's entirely tapped - with a pick I might add - but I'm too lazy to apply all the correct tap, hammer and pull-off notation to the score. Also, because I'm shit with Powertab, this is the fastest I can get it to go even though I rip through it a tad faster.

It was mostly devised as an exercise to improve tapping across multiple strings (you'll know the part when you see it) but it quickly developed into something that I consider to have at least some melodic merit when other parts were added.

I always liked the idea of making an album of reasonably short, grind-esque songs - though not necessarily as brutal, or indeed grind - whereby all I did was tap. Maybe when I get more time I'll be able to concentrate on bringing this concept to fruition.

Anyway, any comments are welcome.
