Originally titled simply, "Piano," this is version two. I have fixed my reverb, added plenty of content, and a possible ending. I've also added other effects to make my strings sound more like strings than flutes or synths. Tell me what you think. :)

You're getting a lot better C:

But i would agree with Gravey on the monotony, roll the chords, add some musical grace notes and 16ths. and... do something about those strings D: They're just narsty, those are background quality strings really. When you dropped the piano, the whole piece kind of dropped to nothing.

Also, fix those dissonant chords in the beginning, i'm not sure if you were intending to do that... but it sounds like when a beginning orchestra pops in bad notes.

I like the melody though... to tell you the truth it kinda reminds me of Tarzan haha.

Good job on concept writing, reminds me of a "goodbye" piece.

At 2:59 i'd change the staccato notes to sustained, meaning lengthen the notes. it's kinda "blocky" as you told me my pizzicato was lol

I like how you created the crescendo in the intro. That has a nice effect. And the chords are nice. I think you should roll some of them to break up the monotony though.

The melody is simple, yet pleasant. I hear some quality issues. It sounds like you have some clipping going on. Lower your master fader just a tad. That should help.

The strings are a nice touch in the background. But I don't like it when they are by themselves. They are not quality enough of a strings sample to run on their own. Add another instrument or two there to help them out.

I think the piano should be more of a focus towards the end. Or something. It is just to simple after the piano drops out. I love the ending when the piano comes back in though. Very classy touch bud.

3/5 and 7/10 overall.

Thanks Gravey. I'll keep working on it. By no means is this the final. I was thinking about getting some better strings and just moving it over, hopefully that would make it better. Thanks for the review. :)

Good start

Not bad, the bass could be lighter though as it's too driving for the softer type of piece you seem to be going for. You only hit the low chords like that if you're playing beneath a full band, you don't need the power as a solo instrument. The melody isn't too bad either, but it's a little aimless (which may be what you're going for) so it's kind of hard to evaluate in that concern. One way to maybe improve further is to make some more interesting chord choices, and add some surprise sounds now and again to keep your listener interested even if the melody doesn't have an exact direction they can follow.

Hope that can help! 7/10, 3/5

It's definitely supposed to be aimless. Like what you feel after you've lost someone you love. The chords are meant to be kind of the force that pulls the song along, but i know what you are saying. The song is meant to be like a person wandering, maybe through the streets after a city has been wiped out. going through their stuff, it's supposed to be familiar, but saddening. Then near the end you find another person maybe. Then walk off together. I guess....that's just the feeling i get from the song...
