This is the first time in a LONG time I made a song
I had the time since finals week was last week.
I guess the title is fitting in that sense.

So, tell me what you think.
Good and Bad.

Just be honesty with me is all I ask
I want to get better i know i don't know everything yet.

Sounds are not right

The arrangement of the song is pretty nice. I think the piano is a bit loud in the mix and goes on for a little to long to keep interesting, but it's ok. The sounds in the start sound really dull. Cheap and as if they were pulled from the libarary without doing anything to them.

The drums at 1:10 are pretty terrible. They kick in like the drummer forgot to pick up his sticks at the right time, but they correct themselves later (luckily)

The drums and synth at 2:20 sound empty too. Try adding something to that arrangement, since it sounds empty. Since it is already in the middle of the song, it should be more entertaining and not an outro already.

The best advice I could give you is that you should put some more effort in mixing and getting the right sounds. This is what makes this song pretty bad. The strings sound pretty good, but I hate the piano, drums and bass. Some EQ might fix this.

Overall I hear a lot of potential, but skills aren't really there yet. Keep practicing!

Nashton responds:

thank you i really appreciate it.
i had figured that i need to understand up to EQ.
i hear what you mean about drums and the emptiness.
all the melodies in my head and i cant present them well. haha

i will see what i can do with my next song and re do this one and my others once i get a chance

again thanl you.

Really calming

Maybe not what you were going for:p but I found this piece to be quite soothing and really melodic. Might you have an album by any chance? I'd love to download more of your tunes

Nashton responds:

i dont have an album. all the music i have is on NG and they are not that great.
but thank you.
