Random improvisation. Partially inspired by a really, REALLY depressing my little pony fanfiction. I fixed some particularly nasty dissonant mistakes but otherwise left almost everything intact, so there are timing errors abound.

6/10 song, 11/10 improv.

Thanks for posting this, it gives some really intriguing insight into your musical thought process. I improvise a lot, so this is really pushing me into practicing harder, because I don't think I'm quite as competent on the keys.

Just to make you (annoyingly?) aware of your own tendencies- you really love that VI-VII-i progression, don't you ;-)

I also hear vi-V-IV-III a lot. I think you know that because I heard you swap out III for II once, which is one of those things you do when you know you're over using a progression. It was interesting but probably impossible to actually use in a song. :P

I have to overuse progressions in my improvs because I need a stable default to fall back on when I have no idea what i'm doing. If you had access to some of my other improvisations, you would realize i'm actually falling back on several common melodic ideas too, not just chord progressions.

Hey man! I really love this mainly because when I improvise, we have a very similar thought process in the way we do it. :D I see myself in the way you relate chords and melodies.
Only thing I'd say it lacked is rhythmic flow. Really try to get more consistent as it will bring out the best possible sound with your improvs.
Nice swag on the Harmonic Minor Dominant :P Would've like to hear some inversions, maybe some cool tritone substitution. Borrowed chords and modulation are always a nice touch and add a lot of diversity to the improv.
Also, the piano sound was fantastic and EQ'd perfectly. I assume you recorded this into FL and then pasted the melody into VST.

Makes me wanna upload one of my improvs :D
Very inspiring and I enjoyed it all the way through, regardless of the hiccups.

Bonus points for the classic techno motif ending ;)

Keep it up~!

The very very subtle 15 ms lag I can't eliminate that really messes with my jive. Also I kind of hate playing on a MIDI piano instead of a real one.

I have difficulty introducing advanced melodic concepts into improvisations because I can't figure out how to set them up and they don't come naturally.

very impressive, as said below the rythm changes may looks a little od on the 1st seconds but definately the song is better with
