"That being the case, you're very talented!
The switching time signatures also made the piece so much more interesting than a lot of the non-classical pieces presented here."

"Thank all of you for your feedback :)
@Michael:
Ah yes, I can really relate to that. Often when I lack inspiration I'll reach out for more standard progressions and I'll try and make something out of those. Woodwind was very much me just trying out…"

Carmen Gabrio replied to Joshua Mononoetoe's discussion Two compositions - What do you think?
"Really, really love the first one! I've never heard anything like it, especially the guitar riffs. I think it was a bit long and it lost its way with some of the transitions, but all in all it is a very good song! I didn't enjoy the second one as…"

Adrian Allan replied to Joshua Mononoetoe's discussion Two compositions - What do you think?
"Listened to the first one and really enjoyed it - lots of levels of musical detail.
Tell us more about this music. Is it live musicians? Did you score or sequence all the parts? Do you have a specific background in this type of folk music, as it…"

"Nice work. Would sound really good with some real instruments.
One quibble ( actually two, one for each track)
First track started off kind off folky prog rock and very interesting but I felt it lost it's way a bit and went into some fairly standard…"

"I liked 'Clues'. I like the instrumentation. It comes across as a 'demo'. I like it enough were I WANT to hear it in a polished form. I want to hear it with real musicians. That's the next step up for you. I think the huge change of structure/mood,…"

"Wow really? Ha! Who would've guessed! That's the most surprising thing I've read in a while! The harmonica is indeed very underrated. Most people have no idea how expressive it can be when played right. And it's not like it's easy to play either! It…"

"@Clay:
Huh, interesting!
I don't really like the saxophone as much, but I'll experiment and see what happens :)

@Tombo:
Thank you :)
Hahaha. It really depends. I hardly use FL's built-in stuff, as I feel that most of them are more electro-oriented.…"

"Cool another FL user!  Sounds like you've put some time into shaping the sound here, some nice arrangements.  No matter what one does, FL sampled sounds do always end up sounding a bit goofy though, don't they?  Sometimes I feel as if I am trying to…"

"@Clay:
Teehee. Yeah, I guess I had a classic Metheny-esque synthesized harmonica in mind, but that conflicts with me wanting to make it sound realistic. I actually bought a chromatic harmonica to study the possibilities (it's actually quite a fun…"

"Not really a negative thing at all if that's what you are aiming for. What I meant was that it doesn't have a melody like a song or a theme, which is how we normally think of composition - even jazz often starts with the theme and then turns it…"

"To Adrian Allan
Thank you for the kind words :)
Actually everything is done with samples from several different sources. The bass is also done in the sequencer, although playing it on my real bass first did help. I haven't recorded myself because I…"

"I listened to clues and thought that it was very well recorded (but that's not what I specialise in anyway - I'm more interested in the music).
In musical terms, the bass line was great - did you play that in or just write it on a sequencer? The…"
