"Hi Gav!  Sweet little tune.  I liked the overall development.  What about just a tiny bit of variation in the main tune in the first 50 or so seconds...just a different note or two...  the end seems a bit abrupt to me. Just my 2…"

Marc Eugene Farmer replied to Keith J Hampton's discussion "Garden Seduction" - short, modern classical piece for piano.
"Hi Keith,  The piece does seem very solid to me.  The first 40 seconds is awesome.  The theme is delicious.    Some of the chords seemed a bit of a mix of styles- sometimes it sounds impressionistic, sometimes…"

Em Coston replied to Marc Eugene Farmer's discussion Kinda Happy- Suggestions/Critique Request
"I like it overall. I agree with Keith, it was a little disappointing when the percussion dropped out, I kept expecting an occasional accent. I also agree that adding a low end would be nice.   I didn't find the end of that section wimpy.…"

Kinda Happy- Suggestions/Critique Request

I'm happy with the track overall, but I have a concern that the string runs about 2/3 of the way through  may go on too long.  I would appreciate your critique of this, and anything else that might be out of balance.  I'm also wondering if the end of the section before the return of the main theme may be too wimpy...I didn't create a transition.  Also, any changes needed in the mix?Thanks so much for any suggestions/opinions!…See More
