"I would have preferred a bit more harmonic variation, but you're apparently an experience musician and it will not be easy to change the way you're used to work, nor the sound of your music. If you are enjoying yourself and you are as…"

"       I understand. That is why I can only sell pieces of it as advertising hooks. It does well in that area. "

"As I promised I took a listen to it, too. I agree that it is well composed but sadly not surprising. The music is nice, it's good... Try to find your own identity in it."

3 PIANO PIECES FOR A SKILLED PLAYER LOOKING FOR PERFORMANCE WORKs

            Here are 3 pieces I composed over the last year. I play them 3 nights a week at my regular dining room job and whenever I play in Manhattan. They are fun to listen to and fun to play if you have the chops. I must put the links in for you to hear them as this upload only allows 7 or less Mb and each is better than that.   Two of the pieces are of a jazz classical rock type. The other is a boogie woogie with a non stop left hand.     I am hoping to get another apt pianist to use one…See More

"George, These are all fun to listen to. I like them very much. Though they are somewhat similar to each other. Think about this. Life does not happen in two to three minute snippets. You tend to rely on setting up an ostinato, then doing a few…"

"Hi George, I had a listen to Rapido and enjoyed it, it sounded like an updated and hyped up Lalo Schifrin score for something like Clint Eastwoods' Dirty Harry. The harmonic sense appeals to me very much , as does the quirky interruptions to…"

Hello. Farmer George Here - Searching For Honest Critique

         Hello.  I just became a member here and am trying to get a few ears on my original compositions from those who do create  themselves without breaking proper protocol or getting tossed out for an improper introduction.

I am a meat goat, pig and chicken farmer and I play the piano at night in New Jersey USA 3 nights a week and 5 - 7 or so times a year in Manhattan if someone drops…See More

More bass.
I'm heading off to Italy on vacation so I can't get into examples now but if you're still interested when I get back home I'll pick this up with you

Hi George, having listened to the cues you've posted I can tell you have the chops for corporate commercial video underscoring. My ears tell me they lack a bit body on the low end. I wonder what you monitor your mixes on.
