Hopefully the last MIDI song I'll submit on Newgrounds, as I started College today, where I will have my own band to record the songs I make. Re-takes of old songs will soon follow.

Moving on to the actual song, I did this after checking my scale book and falling on the Spanish scale, also called the Jewish scale. Done in roughly 8 hours of hard work. Pretty happy with the result.

Comments/reviews would be apreciated, as they contribute to my growth.

Gears used:
-Sibelius 1.4 (Composition)
-Direct MIDI to MP3 Converter (Conversion)

Jazz polka

A very interesting piece, but I feel that it starts off a little too slow - the differential in speeds is just too great. If you start off a little faster there, you would have a much better lead in.

I think that the sound of the accordion is sadly missing from this piece, which would certainly have helped with the way that it progressed. Still, you've got some good sounds around this piece and it really does help to produce a fine sounding track.

Thanks alot! I totally agree with you, it should have started faster, it's just that my friends kept telling me to make it slower...

Anyways, thanks for the great review, I'll be sure to add an accordion if I ever decide to do a jazz polka... I didn't think about it as a polka, but now that you mention it, it's probably the closest thing to what it is!

-Definitely an interesting style of music and I haven't heard anything like this before. It does have some nice similarities to jewish types of music but that's probably from the scale you were working from. Anyways I love listening to stuff that is different and unique.

-Quick pace in some parts and slow in others which shows how well this transitions back and forth. Flows very smoothly. I also liked the assortment of instruments used which blended together for a nice full entertaining song. Time well spent.
