Piano Shuffle

Hello Newgrounders!

Here is a little piano shuffle I composed today. The drum set is from Jason McGerr.

This one is inspired by summer time coming soon! I've made a loop of it, but I think of adding instruments like trumpets and guitar. I hope you enjoy it!

Have a good day!

I'm very pleased of this musical artwork. I really have to humbly say, this loop is jolly to listen to.

Thank you very much for the good words sir! :)

Great composition, however the rhythm is as tight as it could have been. Also I'm not a huge fan of the drumset. I feel like the kick drum might be a bit too loud.

Hey thanks for the review! I turned up the drums volume just before I upload this song because it was not present enough :) Maybe I should have reduced low freq too. Anyways, glad you liked it!

Amazing piece this! Didn't even notice that it was looping and was listening to it for 10 minutes without getting bored of it :D. Really like that old time classic feel with onlly a few instruments. A trumpet might sound good to add some more meat to the track.
Did you play the piano part live? Cuz it really has a human feel which I love :D.
Great job :D!

Really nice to read that you made it loop for 10 min and still enjoyed it!

I recorded jazzy piano impro on my midi keyboard for 15 minutes with the metronome click on my headpohones and I took the best 1 minute from it.
After this I changed some notes and corrected some mistakes. I never changed more than 5% of the note's location on the timeline so the rythmic is 95% original from the improvisation, I wanted to keep all of the shuffle feeling from the original recording.

Overall this song is somewhere around 70-75% impro and 25-30% composition. There is still a little part (The last 20 seconds) where the left hand's low note makes it impossible to play with 2 hands, but it would be easy to make it playable again for a solo pianist with a few modifications and without changing the flavor of this part. I just liked too much these low notes on this spot :) Maybe I should add a bass for them.

Thank you for the review and the good comments! ;D

Sounds great, but next time I suggest adding some instruments :)

sebastien01 responds:

Thanks for the review and glad you liked this :) I'll probably make a longer version later with more instruments... Or just a longer piano/drums version, I'm still not sure about it. Anyway, future will tell! Stay tuned ;)
