Something I made this weekend. Got bored now. Don't know what I can do with it. Not sure if the crusher on the synth is annoying or adds to the fun. I just added a random drumloop because I'm lazy.

Feel free to comment anything.
Thank you for listening! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

When the piano came in, I had to write something lol. First off, I love that synth! The FM-ish sounding synth was so cute and relaxing in a way. I had to get used to that drum pattern with the synth, but it actually fits. It has a hint of 80's groove to it, like a Euro Rock band could sing to this. I love a good piano chord progression when I hear one, and if you recorded it yourself, good work! It fits really nicely and I love it so much.

I definitely know how you feel when it comes to getting stuck. If you saw my page, you'd see like half of my songs were never finished because I'm stuck or something. Either way, I know its ANNOYING! One way I try to get over the "bleh-block" is experimenting with different drum patterns. Try that DnB pattern like the guy below me talked about. Then try a dance-like pattern. Oooooor try any other type beat pattern that interests you. Sometimes I just have the song on a loop and just use my DAW's built-in musical keyboard and just play around and improvise until I find something I like. Do the same with different random instruments and just play around. As soon as it stops being fun, stop and take a break, hum to yourself and come back and try again. I know I sound so stupid...but it really works!

Either way, so far I like the vibe of this song. :3

Nice review! Thanks I really appreciate this. I think I'm getting better at making music but I'm still light years away from some people. I felt like I was stuck with this drumloop sample on this song and couldn't replace it with anything, since I'm too bad to make my own. Yea I made the chords and used the Amber-Ambient on TruePianos. The process was something like: Started out with the chords. Then alt-a to arpeggiate the chords and put that on the synth (since I knew I would use most of the same notes anyway, same scale) and changed some notes to make it more interesting. But the most time was probably spent finding the right chords and sound. ヽ(*⌒∇^)ノ

Ghaah I always get stuck. I can't make anything longer than like 1:30. To be honest I don't even know if it sounds good when I've listened to something 50 times. And It's even harder to continue on it after I take that break. ε- ( ̄、 ̄A) フゥー

Thanks for the review. I'll maybe try something out.. or just make something new instead

I like the melody; it has a nice feel to it. I imagine this song continuing in a couple different directions. You could keep it calm and just change up your chord progressions for some variety, or you could introduce faster drums and throw in some bass for a more D&B experience. Just a couple of ideas to try if you're feeling stuck. :P

Surkol responds:

Ty for the review. \(★ω★)/
Yea maybe adding a bass and makin some similar chord progression is a good continuation. If I had made my own drumloop it would feel easier to change that. It's like I hit a brickwall when I get stuck. It's hard not to deviate too much from the original when making a bridge. I also feel that It can become too repetitive if I just add the same melody at the end. Hmm I'll think about it and try some stuff.
