EDIT: Reuploaded 24/07/10 - Bass is quieter and edited slightly.

This is my first submission to Newgrounds. I will hopefully be submitting more in the future. I'm working on several games at the moment - look out for "Sans" which will probably be my next upload.
I made this with Fruity Loops 8. It's a really good music writing program that you should try out if you haven't already. This was written in several stages. The first piano part of the song I wrote at my grandparents' house on the piano when we were having a barbeque :P The second piano part (when the drums and bass change, and the cymbals start) was actually a piece I wrote for guitar a while back. I was hunting through my older PowerTab files and found it tucked away. I realised that it fit nicely with the other part, so I stuck 'em together :D The drums are preset loops off Fruity Loops 8, although I have tweaked the first drum loop (The one at the very start) the bass was written after I'd put all the piano on. That came from no particular place, I wrote it for this specific piece once I knew I was making this.
Thanks for listening. Please, rate, vote, comment, love, hate, praise and/or critisice my work :P If you have any suggestions for improvements - even a specific riff you think doesn't sound right - please, please tell me. I will endeavour to imrove my work :)


What's with first times?

Everyone who says this is their first NG submission always has something amazing. My big issue, though, is how loud the bass is. It kinda pulls from the piano part and the rest of the song, taking the semi-round tones and making the view of the song more harsh. If I were you, I would tweak with the volume of the different parts to lower the bass, raise the melody piano but lower it when the electronic-ish thing comes in, and try to harmonize the base a little better with the melody.
Great job though, this is very good.

Thanks for the first review! I see what you mean about the bass volume. I think I will change it. I just don't want to make the bass too quiet so that you can't actually hear it. I think I over compensated, though. By the way, the electronic thing is actually still the bass, just playing a lot higher up :P

EDIT: Reuploaded with quieter and slightly edited bassline.
