Well, since Christmas is coming up, I decided to make a Christmas tune for it. Took me around a week of on and off work, and after a lot of failed attempts to make it sound good, I decided to stick to this version.

This uses a flute from the Unison soundfont, tubular bells from a miscellaneous soundfont I found on the Internet, a piano and pizzicatos from the SGM V2.01 soundfont, strings from the Squidfont Orchestral soundfont, and some drum samples I downloaded. Remarkably, it's the first time I made a song in a major scale on purpose. You can consider this the happiest song you'll be hearing in a while... Oh, and this was inspired by a part Danman87's song 'Heart of the Winter'.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the song, and please review. I respond to all reviews, and review back with a huge review if your review is helpful. Thanks for listening!

You've got the instrumentation down all right. I get what you mean about using the major scale... it doesn't come naturally to me either, all I do is in some variation of a minor scale :v. I'm giving this a kinda high score since it actually accomplishes what it sets out to do which is to establish a christmas feel. Percussion is sensible and stuff and the mixing is pretty good except for the flute being a bit obnoxious maybe. Piano and bells sound awful though

"all I do is in some variation of a minor scale :v."

I KNOW RIGHT. I remember in one of my older songs I said that in one of the sections I did "a switch to a minor key", but looking back it turns out the whole song was in minor anyway.

"flute being a bit obnoxious maybe"

Oh man, reminds me of how much you used to hate my flutes before. Now they're good though. Right? RIGHT? :(

"Piano and bells sound awful though"

This is true.
