Interesting progression. Sounds eerily familiar.

I feel like your lead should probably be taken down just a bit so as not to lay on top of the rest of the track.

Since this is lo-fi videogame, I can't really comment on sound quality a lot, but unlike Kwing, I do like your writing. With a little more structure, perhaps some more structure, this would feel more complete, vibrant. The main problem, the bassline stays roughly the same throughout, and that's where your lack of progression is coming from. Not to mention, percussion feels looped throughout.

Otherwise, not bad. I enjoyed the piece. If revisited with more attention to structure and progression -- there are lots of great song-writing tutorials on YouTube for this -- I see the potential for a great videogame soundtrack. Seriously, great lead writing. :)

I appreciate you giving me such a long review!
I'm glad that even if not executed perfectly, you still had parts you liked about this. :)
I know for certain that I need more practice with my variation, it's something that I have
trouble with atm...
Again, thank you for your kind and helpful review!

This was okay. The melody doesn't really go anywhere, but it's not just one or two phrases looped either, so I appreciate that. Some more decisive composition, harmonization, and smoother transitions would help, but as-is this sounds kind of like it was improvised.

Thank you for a critical, but not insulting review.
I'm of course, still learning with music, and am completely
self taught! I'll take what you said, and hopefully be able to keep
it in mind on future works.

Really good! Could use some more variation though. 5 Stars!

colorsCrimsonTears responds:

Thank you! And I understand, I'll try and work on that.
