The new and improved arrangement of a little ukulele tune I made up. I made a few changes (not that anyone would ever notice), but of course, I notice.

Any feedback would be most appreciated, especially with regards to the supporting arrangement for the “flute-y” melody. Being as the flute-y thing gets split into 3 part harmonies, I’d be interested to know whether the main melody (the singular line of the first verse), gets lost. And, as with all my stuff, is the bass too loud, too soft, or just fine?

Does it work as an instrumental? Maybe for some cheeky video game? The “Kirby” series comes to mind. I love the tunes in “Kirby’s Epic Yarn”.

I intended it to have a vocal but my singing voice requires a lot of auto-tune, and besides, I don’t have a great microphone. That and I don’t much care for writing lyrics.

Thanks in advance.

Honestly, I don't see the need for vocals with this. It's got a nice vibe to it -almost Caribbean in a way. I quite like it. 

I'd remix it a tad though and drop the flutey melody down just a little and equalize the strings up in volume a little as well (or you could pan them to bring them out just a little -not too much though). In regards the harmony, not at all. The main melody still cuts through nicely -the harmony acts more like a chorus effect (which I believe is common in game music, right?)

All in all, very catchy. Good work!

jawoodruff,

Thanks for the helpful feedback.

Question: By "equalize the strings up in volume", are you just referring volume as opposed to applying EQ?

Great to know the melody is clear, and since you had no comment on the bass levels, I'll assume they are fine.

I will be checking the things out that you mentioned. Thank you very much for the feedback!

Yes, just the volume of them. I don't write in this idiom -so I don't know the exact terminology.

jawoodruff,

I lowered the volume on the flute-y thing a bit and panned the strings a bit to the left. This made some parts more audible so I fixed a few melodic voicings that weren’t sounding quite right.

If you get a chance, I’d be interested in your opinion. Are the strings too loud?

This is a huge improvement. The strings are the perfect volume now -they don't overpower the bass or the melodic line and add a nice bit of support to the melody/bass interplay. I love this. It's definitely on the right track! Keep up the great work!
