Polish Waltz [own composition]

Recommended Posts

My only note is that most of the chords feel a bit empty.

Remember that you don't have to use a chord's fifth,

therefore you can put there something else.

Say you had a Eb over Gm, I think I saw that.

Eb contains Bb and G, which are the identifying notes of the Gm that's already there.

So you could make the Eb an Ab instead, therefore having a super extended Gm instead of just added Eb.

Also I felt that your bass notes weren't low enough, but that's probably just my ear.

I'd recommend doubling the bass note an octave below in your stronger parts.

Also in the past few weeks I learned that it's important to sustain basses,

so in the last part you might want to sustain your bass.

Thanks for your advice.

That's one of my first compositions.

I must say that I don't even know how to read notes and I have no music theory knowledge. Everything I made on this channel was created by ear.

I need to study theory to improve my skills.

Regards,

Fat Paul

It's nice but harmonically pretty static as it stays in G minor though out without much variation in the chord progression or any modulation.  For a short piece like this, that's okay but after while you'll want to have have some contrast.

This is lovely! Can you tell me what your software/video setup is? How did you produce this video?

With regard to the harmonies, I thought they were fine, since this is a waltz, and so, in my opinion, it's the overall feeling and effect that's the most important - and the melody, which was pretty.

1 Fl studio -> midi -> export sound layer

2 Synthesia captured using Screen Recorder soft.

3 VST layer added to the video. 

Thats all 🙂

This is a pretty soothing listen. I have also looked at the score and it seems that you are using a 3-note chord for the second and thirds beats of the waltz. Normally, that can sound quite heavy for beats 2 and 3 for a waltz on an actual piano, but then again, it may have been your intention to do so. But anyways, keep it up!
