Six years later
and I'm still listening to this shit..... so fucking good.
Reminds me of Leisure suit Larry games
Very chill, I wish I three hands so I could play this on my keyboard...
Hey ManateeGod, I think we all want more hands when we play the keyboard, haha XP
Thanks for the review.
Keep it up!
You've got talent, it was clean and sweet, the only thing I would say is I was expecting it to build up and go mad out nuts and it never got there for me, I would just add more stuff, like some high bits that move double tempo or some phatter bass during the drop etc etc
It really good, just needs more!
Short but sweet, a lot of cool things going on here. I'd say add more stuff going on but I like it none the less!
On a side note, I REALLY liked what you did with the Drums, how did you make it go so fast??... I know next to nothing about writing speedy drum and bass lines.
The song is played at 200bpm, which is already fast, but the drums breaks use a lot of 1/2, 1/4, and 1/6 notes in it to make it sound that much faster.
I love it but it's kinda scary!
THe begining reminds me of Jaws backwards....although it's also kind of like breathing, or maybe the baby is whimpering and the mother is singing her song above to try and lull it to sleep.
If you just had a low 'G' hum running through the whole piece I think that would make it less scary though :)
THIS ISNT A LULLABY TO PUT PEOPLE TO SLEEP! LOL
All it needs is a *dingdingdingdingadingadingdingdinga" on the top or somehting... mad sick
I didn't find the repitious seven chords to be relaxing the bass is to driving, and the harmony isn't always the best (0:09- 0:13 for example).
If you're up for it, try doing ascending seven chords in the left had (like how you did the right hand), and slow whole note, or dotted-half/quater melody on top with the right hand.
Listen to some phillip glass, it's kind of the style that thois reminded me of, and keep it up dude ^_^
Wow, I appreciate the very in depth review you have there, as thats a concept that few people understand on NG. To be honest I made this almost a year ago, so the actual notes I don't even remember, as well as what I was doing, and sadly with what you're explaining to do, goes completely over my head, because I don't understand the concept. I have no experience in music theory, and etc. I just try to make what sounds good by myself. I'm glad to see you liked it as much as you did regardless of what's wrong with, and thank you for the advice.
I'll be straight, I'm not a fan of the slow minor scale bits (0:39-0:43) and (0:55-0:59), maybe use the blues scale, or mix the rhythm up a bit... it sounds too basic and not melodic enough...the fast runs are sick though.
Since you're layering track at a time, you might even want to double the guitar for fun and do some running thirds/sixths, a la Iron maiden.
Much talent here, looking forward to hearing you in the up coming guitar hero games ^^
this is just the sample im workin on the real song now but thanks man ill remember...thanks!
Kinda takes a while to get started
I'd maybe bring in the melody and the higher parts earlier... dunno pretty sick.
Maybe change up the kick/clap line a bit, and some double claps here and there, it's kinda static...
5'd it none the less, gj well done.
ONly thing I could think of is that you might want to add even more intensity on bar four of your phrases, especially on the drop when the drums come in... maybe go nuts on a high frequency spazy beat or somethign.
Much better than I could do that's for sure, very nice job, and keep it up ^)^
Hey man, I agree totally that I should be putting more umph on that 4th bar section just before it kicks into the main chorus.
Be sure to check out the final version of this song soon to come! I think you will like the changes/additions.
