well done but as MilkMan said it needs just a wee bit more of your personal style.

Dudidum responds:

It's true that the song sounds a bit too normalized in a way ;) It's one of the songs that is already finished in my head unlike e.g. the Adventure Music pieces. I just needed to record it without any big mistakes.^^

Thanks for the review!

A hidden brilliance

Hello sir,

You asked for a review, you got a review.

First of all, the whole thing is almost perfectly composed and probubly looks just as good on sheet music as it sounds. You can really do wonders with those fingers sir. However...

It is very clear that you have indeed taken Lessons my friend... and although not a bad thing, it's almost a hinderance in style. Let me explain...

Every note seems perfectly timed... right where it should be... it lacks that human touch. But most of all... it lacks sustain. Do you have a sustain pedal? It would probubly single handedly eliminate the choppy outline of this masterpiece all on it's own. If used right...

It's a marvolous piece of piano and you deserve great credit for it. But it's time to break away from all you've learned and feel the music and let it weave fluently rather than presicely.

I await you next pieces... and since Zero voters suck you get 5/5.

Good luck and good work.


Dudidum responds:

Yea I should really start to use that damn sustain pedal... I'm not really used to use it ;).
I've once thrown everything overboard since I stopped taking lessons but It's true that I'm playing with a lot of precision. I just love to play exactly on and between the notes ;).
To get a really fluent piece I need to work a lot on my way of playing and/or I need more instruments :).

Thanks for the review and I'm also waiting for your new masterpieces ;).

Very Nice...

It has alot of power into it! Makes it really hard as a rock! one thing's missing... add few more various tunes to make it more effective, so it could be nicely done, but this one is 'aight! its not bad...
I like how you tuned up the piano... it has a melodic feeling into it... Yeah, you need to add more tunes... the piano was like the only tune there is... but it turned perfectly, but just add diffrent tunes to make it more effective ( i think im repeating this again lol) anyway, add like some kind of violin or some sort...

Keep up da good work Dud,


Dudidum responds:

weeell yea...
I thought I added more variety than I've ever done before :/
And adding another instrument would be fairly difficult for me because it's not a computer rendered song. A violin would be especially be a problem because I don't know anyone who can play it. Furthermore I don't even know if a piano/violin combo would fit this style ;).

Anyway thanks for your review!
