So are you my beautiful zakei!!!

Nice Job!

The Quality of the Piano is meh (but what can you do about it). Overall I say good job again...the piano could either be piano. I like the rythems set by it but overall there is not much else to say,,,

This isn't terrible, but it certainly isn't worthy of consistent 10/10's, IMO. It's like three chords in root position being played as an arpeggio, topped with a simple melody of quarter and half notes. No offense, but my twelve-year-old brother (Though he is a musical stud!) writes stuff a good deal more complex.

I'm not meaning to be discouraging, but this isn't worth such as high score, especially with all the awesome music that is only rated at around 2.5/5. :(

Here's some suggestions, though:
-Work on dynamics, as it will make everything more lively and flowing
-Learn some music theory. Simple triad arpeggios need to be spiced up after a while!
-Make the piano notes sustain/hold out. They are too choppy for this style, IMO...

So here we have another top ten. Another top ten piece that makes absolutely zero sense why it should be here. Do you think for one second you could play this on the radio without getting crucified by your audience? I know a 9 year old who has put together more impressive pieces than this (he is a genius though). I know it's a demo. I know it's short. But NG top 10 material should be stuff you could hear on the popular station or whatever else on the radio and not suspect you were listening anything but a professional producer.

This - this is not that. The rest of you hand out your little 9's and 10's like they are candy. And it means nothing.

Nice One

It could use a good drum beat at :26 otherwise i liked it!
