You're new to making music? :D
Let me give you the most important piece of advice I've learned in 5 years of making music:
1. Find a song you really like.
2. Try to figure out how that song was made.
3. Make your own version of that song with your own melodies and beats, but keep the structure the same.
4. Now, make a remix of the song you just made, so you can practice with changing up the structure.
5. Rinse and repeat about 50 times, with absolutely diverse songs and artists, then you'll sound like Max Martin or Skrillex for sure!
(p.s. I figured this out like 2 months ago, and I feel stupid for not doing it earlier)
Thanks for the tip! But I'm ahead on this one. I've been analyzing songs as a hobby for quite some time now :) . I know what makes a song good and I know that this one isn't. This was more of a joke to my brother since this is the kind of songs he hates the most (sounds like the 1990s and has 2 melodies overall). So yeah I know what makes a song good. In the mean time, I'll just make stuff until I'm comfortable with something :) .
The main idea of the song is not bad at all. However, as mentioned it is really repetitive. The ears need a break or they'll tire quickly. I think if you add some changes or instrumentals this would really go far! :)
Keep it up.
Thanks for encouragement.
Don't worry, I do intend to keep making songs. I enjoy it after all. :)
Thanks for feed back ^-^
You said in your Author's Comments that you made this in only three hours, so I won't be too hard on you for its repetitiveness. Too much repetitiveness isn't a good thing for a song to have, though.
Also, the kick between 2:10 and 2:40 is too quiet and can barely be heard. This is also an issue at 3:26.
You should've put more time into this song before releasing it. Don't rush perfection or it won't come out perfect! I feel like this song could've been a lot better if you had put more time into it.
P.S. I don't think putting "repetitive" as a tag is a good tag for your song.
I rush songs because I intend to try a lot of stuff to find in which I'm good. Though I'll admit, the repetitive tag isn't good. I should've put the prettier version: "Loop".
I don't expect perfection since nothing is perfect, but I'll definitely try to make something that doesn't sound terrible.
Although for a first attempt, I think I did pretty good.
Thanks for feedback ^-^
So this is your first completed track? It's pretty nice actually.
Okay, the drums are the ones that need most improvement. They are really quiet, and they have almost no power behind them. Especially starting from 3:26 the kick is almost inaudible. You need a louder, more compressed kick, and then maybe sidechain it with the melody.
And yeah, it was very repetitive. There was hardly anything really interesting to keep the listener hooked up for the whole four and half minutes. Afterall, It was basically the same melody over and over again. More different sections and instruments would've helped a lot.
My final advice? Make more music, obviously :) You are starting out pretty good, definitely better than most 'first songs' I have heard. I'll definitely be wanting to hear what you've got for the future ^^
(PS. to make those links, you just have to copy the url of the song and paste it)
You know what, I'm going to use the comments you just made right now. I'm going to go into more variety, more melodies, more complex. I appreciate the feedback a lot because as it is, my work needs a lot of improvement. Thanks again!
Nicee man, this reminds me a lot of "Crookers - What Up Y'all". Keep up the good work :)
I'm flattered you think my song sounds that good. I'm not even close to that level but I do appreciate a compliment every so often :3.
