Think happy thoughts...you'll be bawling. An emotive piece, you choose the occasion.


its a sad love story

i see a story full of love and tears. the rollercoaster experiences in it unravel a bittersweet tone that touches me deeply. You have a way with music and it really shows in this piece. I would like to speak maybe over email with you on how you make such sweet melodies. im new at this and i could sure use any advice that u can spare, thank you for the pleasure of listening to this.

Well, a somewhat bohemic review; not had one of those before...

I'll go have a listen to some of your stuff too and see what I think. Thanks for your time.

Great song!

Never a Farewell... this sounds like a farewell song to me :) sorry :)

I love those strings, just beautiful. This is a great piece of work. Simply stunning. Amazing!

Keep it up!

You probably wouldn't have guessed, but this is also related to Wild and Dangerous. That film was set in the 17th century with big skirts and wigs. Spot the money shot if you can :P.

No need to be sorry, it just means you are thinking on the same wavelength; it means "you didn't say goodbye" in a way. Thank you again for your review.


aaah, the swaying melody... the strings... they emit a tone so pure... so depressed, they have a story to tell, and yet I can never understand it...

I loved it, without a doubt, a true great.

But enough with my appreciation to the piece, allow me to make suggestions.

I'm not sure if you can do it with your VST, but add a vibrato effect to the string, so that it wavers as the note holds on, why? Because doing this gives the feeling of fragility, of something so easily broken, and destroyed, it adds a lot of sadness.

I would have liked to hear the flute in this piece louder. I think I heard one dueting with some strings, it should definatly be louder then that man, maybe playings its own sad melody.

Great way to end it, that I truly appreciated.

5/5 from me Grumbleduke, keep them coming, i'll keep on listening.

Grumbleduke responds:

Wow, thank you. Your suggestions make perfect sense, I see them (well pseudo-hear them) working. What you heard was flute and english horn (octaves), someone plays guess the instrument well. Sometimes I put instruments in for their timbre rather than as a second melody as a rudimentary 2-part harmony. One problem; I no longer have access to Garageband (which is capable of making those alterations), so I'm back to Cakewalk Crud Audio for now. Perhaps after some saving up I'll have my own copy of it. Thank you indeed for your praise.

Beautiful love theme

Thanks! lovely piece I will use in my new movie Buddy and Pam.
