Insert Title of Review Here

I've go to say it is an interesting take. I like your willingness to explore different instruments to redo these "classic" tunes. It's really good but there are some critiques for you. Take'em or leave'em.

*Your intro and the intro to the original do not meld. Work on the transition because you really have a nice sound in the intro, but without a proper transition it jerks the listener out of the entire song.

*The following probably hurt your score the most. Perhaps I am being too harsh and unjust, but in the original I LOVE the harmonized guitars at the moments such as (1:33 and 2:38). The fact that such a strong part was overlooked in this recreated version was shocking. It is the pinnacle of this piece (in my opinion) and without that it seems empty.

Keep it up. You have a good ear for this, and perhaps some studying in music theory would enhance that. Nice work!

I hope that wasn't too constructive o.O

Good thing I'm taking music theory this year. :D

Anyway, I know the intro's got a bad transition. It doesn't match the rest of the tune in any way, shape or form; once we get into chord progressions in Music Theory, I'll rewrite this.

Also, my guitar soundfont selection sucks. Pro Tools should change all that. As for the harmony, I had a REALLY bad habit of overlooking the majority of harmony tracks in the MIDI files I collected. Being just a kid back then, I can understand why, but it's not fair to cheat the people who enjoyed the original like that. I've been making more use of the harmonies in recent mixes. Hopefully I can get some more recorded stuff on here before the year's end, but doing a major rewrite of S-E-P-H-I-R-O-T-H! is all-consuming right now on the music end.

Anyway, thanks for your review. Frankly, I wish all my reviews were this constructive.
