Sadness - New Series

Author Comments

Well this is new. I haven't posted anything new in awhile. Remind me somebody to upload a better version of "Jazz Tune." That would be great, thanks! Well This one is "Sadness," i don't really know how well i conveyed the thought or message but if you could, provide some constructive criticism. Towards the end it isn't really that sad. But i think that the melody creates a sad feeling (well it does for me). But whatever... i like this piece.

Didnt feel it

why i didn't :(
- I fit were in some game maybe, just because that electronic horn sound is all you hear in some of those. But i don't ever feel too much from music unless its real instruments. I did actually like the end, it was the biggest rise and fall of emotion in the song

what can help :]
What helps though is more chords or some base line, especially in the beginning (that plain phrase over n over needs some background to it)
Plus jazz shouldn't bind you up, switch it up. have the horn speed up the phrase later, or hold out some notes with the sax, different instruments can make a phrase sound completely different that way.

I don't ever want to leave downplaying someones work, so please, don't stop here! making musc is wonderful I wish i could. keep at it :D

thanks, since at the time of compositions, i only had Finale Notepad, and now i have the full version on 2005, i can now switch up tempos and stuff. So i'll try writing another Jazz piece. And there is a bass part, it's just that it's really soft. When the midi to mp3 converter changed it, the sounds totally changed it. So i'll propbably remove this and put a new one up instead. Thanks for the review!


its alright

this one is ok, but i think you should of chosen a different instrument for the melody. i'm not sure what instrument it is, if its a violin or horn or something. But I didn't completely feel the sadness. But you should experiment with dynamics or something, to make your songs more interesting I guess.

lvl5drummer responds:

yeah it's a sax... i shoulda used strings but i got the idea of those instruments from the cover of Wii Music. So whatever
