I played trumpet for over 6 year, which means i know quite a bit about band and how they should be composed.
I don't know how long youve been playing, but the tone is very good and the sticatoes(sp?) are dead on.
However the organ is completely out of place it feels. the organ feel like it should be a compete undertone or an over tone. It sounds like the trumpet and organ are fighting with eachother for space. Now there should be some sort of metronomic sound because the organ doesn't seem to follow a steady count either 4-4 or 3-4.
Those just a couple of my suggestions.
Heh, I don't play the trumpet, this is all midi. Thanks for your feedback anyway! I was thinking about putting in something to keep a beat, but I didn't because... I'm foolish.
There wasn't a strong melody line, though I liked the trumpet falls. Try to focus on composing a strong theme or melody to be developed and re-used, though the opening riff was very catchy.
I guess using the same progression really limited you in the end. I just felt like it didn't go anywhere. Solo-sections in midi music are best when they are highly structured, kind of like the synth solos in Toto's Roxanne or Africa. These sounded more improvisational and thrown together.
However, you have done a lot so give yourself a pat on the back and remember you're halfway there.
