Thank you!

nice lil' music to be honest I'm new in NG and the first things I see makes me think that it's an awesome platform, so thank you for this track that gives me a damn positive idea it !

ScottJacob responds:

Thank you for listening :) and welcome to the platform, there's tons of great artists on here so i'm sure you won't have a tough time finding awesome stuff to enjoy!

Sounds good.

cool!

I like the song, the funky vibe and choice of instruments. But there are few things that I would like to address here :
On the string melody (around 0:17 and 2:28), some of the repeated notes sit too close to each other, which can make the melody a bit boring.
The same instrument again at 1:30 plays on strange keys (perhaps out of main scale), making this section of the song somewhat 'creepy'.
Overall, the rest is great!
I hope that you don't take this seriously and rather use it as a guide to improving future tracks.

ScottJacob responds:

I will gladly take this seriously, I agree the melody could use some variation to feel less repetitive.

At 1:30 i have a synth stringed instrument playing some root notes going up a C lydian mode pretty much, then i just improvised a solo in C pentatonic minor scale as far as i can tell. I'm guessing that might be responsible for the creepy undertones, which i'm fine with lol

Thank you for writing this constructive feedback, It really does help give me things to consider while working on music moving forward.

Take care!
