This consists of accordian, acoustic guitar, flute and violin. Feel free to use this in your own material (as long as you tell me and give me credit).

Rhythm-wise, it has the makings of an Irish trad piece. It sounds like a jig, something in 6/8 time, and I like that beginning.

Harmony-wise, there tend to be too many conflicting melodies. It's not that they're out of tune, but rather, they're all competing for attention, going in separate directions, and it sounds chaotic. In trad music you'd have three melody instruments, tops, and they'd all play the same melody (uileann pipes, tin whistle, fiddle). Alternatively, there'd be two melodies, but they'd make a good balance between each other, each one shining at its turn, while the other is slightly subdued.

Chords are alright, I suppose, but the overall impression is that I was left with my ears darting all over the place.

Have you listened to trad tunes before? Things like O'Sullivan's March, Cherish the Ladies, The Wind that Shakes the Barley... etc. The melody has you darting a bit, but if you were to arrange these with chords on a piano, you'd find you wouldn't need that many. One every beat or so, tops, but not every section in the piece would be like that.

Hope that may help fuel your imagination, and all the best with future pieces.
