Well, as is, this song is sort of an intro. I'm not sure whether to keep it that way or to add more to make it complete.

Let me know what you think. Thanks in advance for any comments. Please vote fairly.

Very nice, but could be longer...That's about it...Kinda sounds like a very awesome opening though...

SinJim responds:

Yea, I've got plans on revamping this one into a whole song and make it more "grand." I just don't have as much time as I'd like to really sit down and give the song the hours it deserves. Thanks for the comments!


Very nice chord progression.

If you plan to expand on this I highly adivse that you start to add a lot more moving lines to it. I mean, you a very nice tonality going for you, but I would start adding some higher voices along the way, not so much as a melody but more as an effect. Then after you establish the overall pace of the piece start to add some excitment by giving a descending base and an ascending soprano. Then as the tension hits it's peak give a very strong fortissimo full blown 1 chord (put a 5 or 7 chord prior to give a stronger resolution). Now that would just be awesome. Then after that just do what you like lol.

You have a lot of potential with this. Now capitalize on it.

SinJim responds:

Wow, thanks for the review, Vex. I definitely plan on extending this and I'll be taking your suggestions as they sound like they would work really well in the song. I'm glad you liked this one, thanks again for the review.



Really brings out emotions I think
A piece that really speaks to someone
Somewhat dark yet beautiful at the same time
If I were to make a movie or video game or something of that matter I'd definatley add this to it!
I personally think the cymbals at the end didn't really fit in with the music
But that's just my preferance
I really enjoyed this!
I suggest you make more like these :D

SinJim responds:

Thanks for the review Riley, I'll listen through a couple of times and focus on the symbols. They might not fit, I can always try a different sample. I am planning on updating this eventually so when I do, I'll send you a message to check this out. Thanks again, hopefully more along these lines will come out of my mind haha.



I was feeling something along the lines of this:

at the end of this intro have the strings drop out. then have a piano solo, nothing really intricate, but keep the mood going. then have the strings come back in with the piano, keep the motif going, then bring in some drums with some brass to a huge climax. and as the strings fall away... the harp comes back in for the outro...

Its pretty cool right now, you just need to add more.

The image I get from this is as the song starts a camera is moving through the halls of what looks like an abandoned castle... and when the harps come in you see a coffin in an otherwise empty room. And with the drumroll and cymbal crash... the coffin opens.

SinJim responds:

Those are some good ideas there, I'll take them into consideration. I do plan on updating this when I get the time. I've already got the piano part after the strings drop and the rest would really work for the song. I'll let you know when I upload a new version. Thanks for the review, I really appreciate it!



You know what I've always loved in a piece just like this? Do everything pretty much like you have, then towards the end just when everything is building, just let it drop naturally. THEN kick in the drums and maybe add a guitar or some synth.
Those are just my thoughts, it's pretty good now, Just needs some building.
And yes, I did also think of vampires.
P.S. I have just uploaded again, it's pretty cool this time.


SinJim responds:

Thanks pants, that's a pretty sweet idea. I think I'd like that. You should put in some drums and make it sick. I can see it developing into a pretty big piece.

I did really need suggestions for this one as it's short and really just an intro. Let me know what you think about drums.

Thanks for the review!
