I uploaded this one a little late. It's been around for a while.

So I pledged to remake the original Melodica, fixing what I had done wrong. But i Didn't fix it right.

You'll notice the song still has an opening and exiting piano. Its a different piano track, if i remember correctly, but i placed an effect on it. I think it sounds good.

I put in a new drum track. It's one i'm relatively satisfied with. Not much can be said about the drums, but i did use the same bass (That, or i completely cut it for some valid reason. Hell if i can remember) because all the other ones sucked.

As for the lead guitar, which really defines Melodica, It's back. Again. Yeah. It also has an effect on it (this effect i keep talking about is really just a change of pitch) and i think it fit better, because the guitar and piano originally had these high sort of spike sounds compared to everything else.

The only problem, and i don't think its one that can be fixed, is how it just sounds flat. Thats unfortunate, but its not like i'm a professional here.

Anyway, congratulations if you've read this far, and I hope you enjoy the song.
I hope you'll review, too.

I thought it was quite a nice piece, however, I think the piano was a little bit too long and a little too repetitive. When the guitar and drums came in it got better, but I think it quieted down a little much, like it was supposed to be in the background of something that wasn't actually there. This would have been really good if you added some good vocals to it when the guitar and drums came in. That may not be where you wanted to go with it, buts thats my opinion.

Overall pretty good, though, 4/5.

I rather liked the Long Pianos. Deal with them. -_-

As for the 'in the background' feeling you describe, thats what i was getting at with the flatness.

If i had any singing ability, inspiration, and equipment, i would make vocals. Perhaps. If I ever get a good song, i might collab for some lyrics, but i noticed how the bass in this one got screwed over by yours truly.

Either way.
