This is just a short and simple loop I have so far. I'll probably turn it into a longer, more developed song loop eventually, but I just wanted to share what I have so far. I appreciate all honest comments, positive or negative. Thanks.

Pretty nice groove you got going there, really love the Bass, though I'd overlap it with a subbass personally, playing the same thing but an Octave down accompanying the acoustic bass.

Melodically, the note at 0:05-6 is a bit dissonant, and I don't feel that dissonance would be a feature in this kind of song me thinks. But that might just be me.

Excellent Job!~

Hey, thanks for the review! It's always great to get feedback from a fellow music composer.

On my computer's speakers (good headphones are another thing I need to invest in), the bass already sounds pretty deep to me, but I will try your suggestion to add the lower octave sub-bass. With the extra bass, it would probably give the song a more powerful sound. It's a good idea, I'll try it.

Thanks for catching that dissonant note for me. After you mentioned that, I went and listened to all the tracks as piano tracks, and I actually found some other notes as well that didn't sound quite right to me. Since I only learned a little bit of music theory on my own many years ago, I'm not so strong on composing harmonies - I do it pretty much all by ear instead of by knowledge. One thing that I learned recently though, is that in composing harmonies I should do all the tracks as piano tracks at first so it's easier to really hear how the different harmonies are working together. I forgot to do that this time :/

Thanks for the review! It really helps :D
