I guess I was exploring making other basses with this song. Hope you all enjoy it.

I think you could do without having that kick and clap in the first several bars of your track -- leave room for transitioning. Speaking of transitions, that's probably the biggest issue I have listening here. Sometimes they're handled well. Other times, they feel like they lead to nowhere. You might like a video on the subject by Kush After Hours, the rule of pairs. He explains a basic rule of transitions that a lot of hit producers use. Add or change two elements for each transition, and take two away :)

Overall I was kind of underwhelmed with this piece. We have a lot of interesting melodic content and a structure that isn't too bad, but I don't really hear a bass. I hear some chords really low down that I don't know if you mean to be the bass. It's very low and I don't really hear it at all. Your mixing rig may be bass boosting or something, if that's not what you mean.

The high transitions are really sibilant and are the only things that sit in that space through the whole song. I would turn them down some. We're not going to not hear them just because they're a little lower.

Really I feel this song could benefit most from just having a clear bassline that I can hear. Your chords aren't bad at all. Your leads could probably benefit from not being sustained so much, just a personal preference, but all the drama is sucked out of the track just by not being able to hear a bass.

Anyway, don't take it to heart. There are plenty of resources online to help you get out into producing. You're halfway there. I think you should revisit this sometime :)

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

I made this song in an hour. It was just to test out some things.
