You Know It's True (piano song w/arrangement)

Recommended Posts

Here's a piano tune with arrangement that I wrote with virtual instruments in Sonar's piano roll.

No loops. Every note was plopped into the piano roll.. one by one.

The hardest thing for me is getting levels correct. All I can say is that it sounds good on my system.

The flute-y instrument is the melody. I can't help but hear Willie Nelson's voice singing it.

Here's a link:  https://app.box.com/s/u61d2ye95j8sxbd5sc22lbe7r6fgpb1e

I also uploaded the mp3 here at YC.

Enjoy.

The piece is very nice. I hear little snippets of familiar things in the melody. And I recognize chunks of chord progressions from a 60's or  70's song.  But you've been clever enough, so one cannot figure where or if it came from something. And let's face it, there are a limited number of chord progressions that are really great.  So there will always be songs with them..  Can't copyright chord progressions, no worry there.  

Pauld McCartney went around for months playing what would become 'Yesterday' for friends, The basic idea came in a dream. But he wasn't sure if he generated the song, or had re-constituted a song that already existed.  After a month or two, of everyone, assuring him it was original - he moved forward with it.  

 What you've done does sound good.  Choice of instruments, arrangement of parts, is quite good.  YES

Cool, pretty chill stuff. Some nice moments of harmonic oddity that can be interpreted in multiple ways.
If there was one thing to harp on, in fact, is that some chord changes, especially to the tonic can sound a little dorky in comparison to all the other great changes you have, especially when you try to elide the cadence so much.
