  1. Im sorry to hear that. I hope you always remember the good times! Peace
  2. I imagine a man sitting in a 50s diner late at night rain falling smoky room, with not a care "at all" as the melody descends chromatically (is that right?) I like how you allowed the bass to lead in the melody at times. And the percussion with the sixteenth notes just before the measure ends does give the feeling of someone nodding their head or trying to get up from a stupor and failing. I enjoyed this overall! Thank you for sharing!
  3. I agree with the points made above. I would like to hear this player by a group of more experienced players just as you arranged it instead of watering down. How you layered the "where you belong..." section was beautiful. It was full sounding and chord choice was excellently picked. Thank you for sharing!
  4. This was sweet. I tried to imagine a gentle active dog prancing around. It was easy for the most part. I personally found it too melancholic. But there were some more uplifting chord choices. I will have to check out Phillip Glass as I did enjoy this overall. Thank you for sharing!
  5. Ah magnificent! I am shocked to know thst this was your first piece. I enjoyed the contrast in this piece. The heavy dense chords in the introduction to the light dancing melody to the slowed section. It all flowed very well. Thank you for sharing 🙂
  6. Hello, This piece was structured very well. I enjoyed the flowing B section very much but as mentioned above some of the chord transitions sounded awkward. Overall well done!
  7. Thank you all for reviewing my work! I agree that the simple pattern repeating is a bit comical, i will try to think of interesting ways to modify it. I also feel song is not complete. Id gotten frustrated with how long it was taking to get what I already figured out played smoothly so i posted something to be done with it. Making music takes patience though. The revised version will be up soon. Thank you all for listening. 🙂
  8. I agree with the advice from the youtube commenter below.
  9. I took into account all your feedback and created a new version of the song. I still have the squeaky tone sometimes, but will continue working on lifting my fingers more when playing. I think its complete now and a friend suggested to publish it as a demo. Thanks again for listening! 🙂
  10. This was cool! I imagine this being played during a cut scene in a video game
  11. This was good! Your playing and vocals are sounding okay, but there are some things that should be called to your attention. The vocals hit the right notes most of the time, but it sounds off in some places, like maybe your hitting the notes just slightly above or below the note you meant to hit. The background vocals are sometimes off key too. The voice sounds strained as well, but this is nothing that vocal practice and warm ups won't help. Also, moving too close or too far from the mic makes the melody randomly softer and louder and if that's not intentional that is something to keep mind of. The electric guitar solo is great but seems a bit rushed at times, losing the time of the accompaniment. Other than that the song is nice and structured well. Thank you for sharing! I hope this feedback helps
  12. @Jean Szulc Hey Jean! Thank you! I just checked out some songs from infancia, and what an eccentric composer, its jazzy/pop/classical. Its playful but jarring sometimes and melancholic sometimes. Always skillful. I gotta share! Link is below for anyone who happens on this thread and wants to check him out. Three songs from Infancia played live with his group. I'd love to compose and play like him one day
  13. @Tónskáld Thank you so much for listening and your input! You've cleared up some fog for me, especially about the key and the ambiguous sound. It's interesting, the tonic and the subdominant maj7s share the first and third degree notes. And the tonic is the fifth degree of whatever the 4th degree is. I think I can use this in the future. You're right about m.48-49, I'll try it sustaining an f# an octave higher. Thanks again! 😄
  14. I'd say the horns and strings will work well together. I think the space between the last two notes could be spread out more. It would be a nice contrast to have notes held out by the horns while the strings are playing, in my taste. I would be interested to see this fleshed out into a full song. Thanks for sharing!
