This is my first submission to NG, and I think it's pretty cool. I've been working on it since April and finished it about a week ago, and released it as a midi. Unfortunately the conversion to mp3 caused a few things to change a little, such as the snare being a billion times softer than it's meant to be, but other than that it's pretty satisfactory. Thanks to DM for converting it to an mp3 for me and REDDAP for criticism and suggestions near the end.

Please give me constructive criticism only. Telling me it's a piece of shit isn't going to help either of us. Neither is telling me that it's the MOST AWESOME THING EVER LOLOLOLLOLOL. Just tell me why you think what you think and I'll be happy.

let me tell you this.

I liked it a lot. It was very calm and I felt the emotion (LOL I sound like a douche).
Sometimes you just left the key and went on with that solo. It felt weird and out of place. I think you used guitar pro for this, am I right? If so remeber that it is a powerful tool and not every option is needed (I'm talking about that big solo on 01:22) that was too over the top.

On the other hand it is a great composition! I wish I could have used it somewhere but I can't. If you think it's possible gather some friends and write lyrics to it, record and you'll get a deal :D

hope I helped my friend, Peace out.

Thanks for giving me your thoughts. I really appreciate it. Keep in mind that this was a three-month project, and my ability to write and arrange music has really grown over the duration of this project. Not to defend myself, or anything, but I threw that solo in during the first night I worked on it, and haven't really had the heart to delete it since. I really only consider the last two minutes of the song, where the synth enters, to really be worth listening to these days.
