More Instrument

The more the merrier, a violin and a trumpet, dunno. Didn't sound like background music for a flash, but someone actually playing it which is awesome.

Great replay value I assure. Stick to this day job.

Check out my stuff! :P

MusicalRocky responds:

Hey. Lol sorry to tell you, but I just couldn't add more instruments to this piece; it would ruin the feelings I'm trying to convey. That's cool that it sounded like someone really performing it; I tried to help that effect with the dynamics and tempos.

I do intend to stick to writing music.

Thanks for the review man.

Going good :)

Very nice my man, you're definitely making progress in this stuff. I remember now that I still promised you to play a version of Waltz no 5... I'll hopefully get on that soon.

You're gaining variety, and

A few points... (this is assuming you're still using Noteworthy Composer)

In the intro, the sustain pedal kinda clogs up the notes together - in this case, it might've been better to use the 'slur' feature. This is also the case for the part where the left hand repeats chords every quarter note, it sounds kinda choppy there. Basically, you make phrases with that function, so it'll also greatly benefit the right hand. It makes everything way more legato. Also, try to work with the accents more. It'll all be translated very nicely to VSTs and immediately makes it sound more genuine.

Be careful that the right-hand melody doesn't muddle along too much, at certain points I found myself mainly listening to its rhythm because the notes seemed kinda all over the place :). Keep in mind that in pieces like this, that stick to a rhythmical pattern for a long time, the melody should really be something special. Consider every note carefully!

Anyway, it's cool dude, you're getting there. Keep it up!

MusicalRocky responds:

Hey, man. Lol don't worry about my Waltz no. 5...don't feel obligated or anything.

I know what you mean about the pedal clogging up the notes, but I kinda wanted the pedal in there. I think the mess-up is just I held the pedal for too long. For full measures at least. So everything was kinda of mushed up because the beginning is Largo. I don't know if slurring the notes would give me the sound I want. Not sure which part you're talking about with the repeating chords in quarter notes with the left hand. I know what you mean about the accents, I didn't particularly pay much attention to it in this piece.

I now feel badly because with this piece I didn't focus on the melodic line lol. That may have been a big mistake. I'll keep your melodic advice in mind for later pieces.

Thanks, man. I'm glad you liked it. Your review was really helpful.

Very cool!

I'm listening to this and i see plenty of different things, cause every time you "pause" the song, it's like turning the pages of a book and the story changes every page :)

I don't really know what much to say but i really like this piece, especially the first half.

Nice song and i'm pressing the 5 button in a few seconds :)

MusicalRocky responds:

Hey, thanks man. Sorry it took me a while to review this. Apparently I overlooked a few :(

That's a cool thing...like turning the pages of a book...I never thought of it that way. That's neat :)

I'm glad you liked it, man. Thanks for the review and the five.


I love that kind of music.That is SOOO varied.Don't pay attention to the 9 in originality,it's just i heard so much classical in my life that i have this feel this is another of these,but don't worry.This is a great piece,anyway!

MusicalRocky responds:

Lol, I don't care about the 9, I don't even think this deserves a 10. When I set out to write this, I didn't plan for it to be this varied lol. Thanks for your time and your kind words.

oom cha cha

nice track. really like when it picks up towards the second half of the track
god job

MusicalRocky responds:

Cool, that's my favorite part. Thanks for your review :)
