So I keep coming back to my older song Cloudless... The key is just really easy for me to improvise on the spot with I guess. I've managed to build on the melody a lot more than the last variation I made on it (Cloudful). This is just a quick recording of me playing it on the spot so I don't forget later, meaning it's very much just a draft. I'm hoping to make it an orchestral track like the original eventually. Since I like the piano solos though, I'm also saving some of the variations I come up with along the way. They seem to stand up well enough on their own without other instruments.

For this one, I mainly dumped most the new ideas I had for the song in the beginning; the second half you can tell I kind of just lost my way and just was creating filler, went for more a ambient feel. The song might be good for just background music though despite the second half.

Progress on the orchestral version meanwhile is slow, but you can see the most current draft here: pftq.com/cloudlessly/

:D Yay

Draft or not, I'm really liking this. It's just... nice, y'know? Really nice feel to it and I like how it doesn't leave you wishing the song would just get on with it already 'cause it's really not boring at all. Know what I mean? S'okay if you don't. XD

It's alright, but definitely not classical

Before I get into the review, T-Rebel's review really bothers me. First, it's not Pachelbel's Canon in D Major. Pachelbel's Canon goes 1, 5, 6, 3, 4, 1, 4, 5. This song is 1, 6, 4, 5. It is more like Beethoven's Sonata Pathetique 1st Movement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCGH3E Ah-aI @3:33 Also the triads never changed, they just became arpeggiated at 2:48

As per the song, it's got a pretty nice shape to it. Overall it's not classical though. I'd hazard to even place it in the category of RnB. I'd say work on your Hanon exercises to build better control over your fingers so you can keep those notes in rhythm. Also try not to end on such a muddy chord. As you go lower on the keyboard, the sound will start to be more muddy as you add more notes. Rather than playing a full 1-3-5 chord, try splitting it into a 1-5 or 1-5-8 in the bass with a 1-3-5 on top. It will sound a lot cleaner that way despite the fact that I strongly dislike ending songs on a triad.

Thanks - I wasn't sure where to actually put this, it just seems like most piano ends up in Classical. I'm not too familiar with the music theory stuff, so these are good suggestions. Will keep them in mind, thanks!

A little rushed on some notes...

But the music is beautiful. Good job on expanding this interesting theme.


pftq responds:

Thanks, it's a theme I've built up across many of my songs - hope to get good enough to really flesh it out more in the future
