Just the piano this time. I wrote it one rainy winter day.

Not smashin this or anything.

As a matter of fact, I think this piece has great potential. The reason I gave it a 7 ( and i think why others scored so low ) is that there is far too much empty space in the song and that the melody kinda just plays over and over. BUT, i.m.o.m that melody should be kept, and kept where it is in the song (if that makes any sense,) so that you can go back and fill in the blanks.

The new melodies need not be anything too fancy, (especially if you are actually playing and recording this which it sounds like you might be towards the end, if so don't try to play something faster than you're accustomed to ) but it must vary from section to section to avoid over repetition.

Now, instead of reading me talk of all that mess, to the song.
Aside from the above stated advice, (and please note, I merely mean to be constructive, i rather enjoy this piece) I like the tempo of this piece :) Love the contrast between the low and high notes. I can definitely see how this would be written on a rainy day, such an almost melancholic melody, but at the same time relaxing.

I think that people in this category of the audio portal are pretty picky about what they like and don't like, and vote accordingly. I try to vote based on the effort I feel I see portrayed. So, 3/5 for the relaxing but slightly empty melody and 7/10 on a song with great potential, and apparent heart and thought put into this.

Hope this was kinda helpful ^^;
keep at it!

Thank you for your critique, and also following through on what you promised in the forums. I've yet to feel confident enough to post any links there. But I appreciate the feedback. I can understand your thoughts on this, as I kinda had the same myself after listening to it a few times. My computer and keyboard don't cooperate well if at all, and I'm currently looking into options to fix that. Perhaps I can obtain a better keyboard this holiday season...
I plan to keep at it. And I hope you do too.
