Reviews for "Paint It, Black (Instrumental)"

Still sounds basically the same..

..As in classic rock,but with orchestrated bits, I think the best way this song should go is into either more heavier, or softer (as in straight piano with some drums..) But meh thats my opinion..
If you wanted to keep the same kinda sound as the original song, you have certanly achieved that.

Further things to imrpove on..Maybe get a guitar solo somewhere in the middle of the song (1:37), to give it that extra oomph, because I dont really like hearing a bridge then it going straight back into the same old thing as what happened before the bridge.. But meh, your song..Which you made incredibly good. 9/10 but still a 5/5


Hey there, this is awesome. I've been looking for an instrumental version of this song to make up a belly dance to and stumbled across this. It's close to what I'm looking for, but I'd use flutes and make it sound more Indian. Do you have any tips on how to re-create the song?

Hoeloe responds:

If you don't have much experience/cash, I'd get a midi file from the internet and transfer the notes over. It's cheap and quick, but doesn't allow for much variation. If you want variation, buy sheet music.


i think the drums r a bit to strong at the begginning, but other than that, it is one of the best transposed songs ive ever heard. how did u make it?

Hoeloe responds:

Fruity Loops 5 and some damn good soundfonts.

Awesome job man

If you don't mind, I think I'm going to use this in my next flash. Cheers! :D
