Ok, so I've tortured myself with this prospect long enough and I still feel like I'm doing the wrong thing here. This next song I'm about to upload has years of my life invested into it. So far, it is version #2 of the original song I had, but I decided to upload this one because it has a different style put to it.

The reason I've argued with myself over uploading this is because of just that: I've invested so much time into it it's not even funny. I'd hate to see somebody steal this for themselves and have a huge battle over copyright issues if the person plans to use it later to make money (that's assuming this song would be able to make money in the first place). So, I'm asking very kindly, please to do not steal this song and try to claim it as your own because I would be musically crippled beyond repair if somebody successfully won a copyright battle against me with my own song.

Please respect my wishes and also do not downrate this for no reason. Thank you.

I can really tell you put a lot of thought and feeling into this man. The phrasing is constant, but does vary in tone, and instrument. The drums seemed kind of rough in there, but I think that was the intended effect, but they seem to kind of over power a lot of the ear candy I was hearing.

pretty darn good bro

I really like it for something that would seem to go no where. If i started out with a melody like that i would have no idea where to go with it, so i give you mad props for that ;) I enjoyed the piano alot, and i wouldl ike to see maybe a faster part to some of the instruments, to make it seem a bit more intense you know? also, i would advise maybe making it a bit less repetative towards the end, but that's just me. it's perfect for relaxing to. great job ;)

Hi,

First thing to fix. Don't tell the listener what he or she is supposed to imagine. That is the listener's job. I didn't bother reading your long comment so I can give you a unbiased description of what I thought of this song.

Nice thunder and rain fx and a good fade in to start the song. The drums work well in this song. The pads and background instrument does bring a calm oasis feel. I like your tremelo or panning delay effects to some of your instruments.

The concern I have with this song is that the piano isn't playing a intriguing pattern. Its playing like one note with no complex chords or arpeggios. Now I can see simple piano patterns in trance music because of the excessive reverb, but in this oasis type song there needs to be more.

I like how you ended the song. Most of your song is good. I'm looking for the lead part (the piano) to take a bigger role, but other than that you did a good job. As for what I pictured, it was like I was in a beautiful garden with a creek nearby. The drums may have took away some of the tranquilty, but I was always a fan of the dance drum beats. 5/5 and 9/10 review.

Bye for now

Thanks for being honest! And I'll try to add more complexity to the piano in the near future.


Chill

I rarely review songs, but this one caught my attention. It's good to hear songs in another genre besides techno, trance, or metal on this site. (although I'm guilty of making a few myself.)
Anyway, this is really nice stuff. Stellar job.
