I have been wanting to experiment with different styles lately, so I tried to focus on instruments I wouldn't normally use. Although it wasn't my intention, this song seems to have a sort of 'southern' vibe to it due to the Washburn guitar and the Dobro I used.

Since this was mostly an experiment, I would love to get some feedback! :)


I think I just found the person who should've written all The Sims songs. I really enjoyed this song for the most part. The only real concern I have for it is that maybe the percussion is a little loud.

Thanks for the great compliment Olympicsdog! :)

I've always been a fan of the Sims music, so that means a lot! As others have mentioned, the percussion should be a little more balanced along with the other instruments. I'll most certainly take that into account for future projects. :)

It was a pretty relaxing little tune, I'll say! I was actually wondering if you were going to bring in some percussion after establishing the main melody, and lo and behold, there it was. My ears are a bit fatigued at the moment, but it seems like everything is balanced fine. My suggestion is to draw back the percussion a bit, though, especially that tambourine, hi-hat, and snare. In this sort of piece, you don't want them taking the leading role, but rather just drive it from behind, like a feeling the back of your head. Drums can be heard pretty well even when they're turned down a bit, so don't be afraid to experiment a bit with that ;D

I've also been told that if you choose to use crash cymbals, they should always be turned even lower than your snare. Loud crashes in the mix make the whole kit sound small in comparison, so turn them down quite a bit.

Enjoyed the vibes! :D

I'm glad to know that everything seems balanced. Well...everything except for the percussion. Percussion tends to be my Achilles' heel, but in light of that, it's always something I can work on!

I really appreciate the review, thanks a million! :D

This song made me chilled... good job!

Neon-Bard responds:

Fantastic! It's always good to know that a song of mine can make someone feel relaxed, thanks for listening. :)
