Timothy Smith replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion Like father, like son (a song inspired by Tiger Woods and Charlie Woods)
"So I sometimes have trouble relating a song to a theme as suggested. Neither am I a golfer, so maybe I'm a bit disconnected from this to comment on it accurately. 
Sounds like a decent basic theme sort of thing to me. Nothing pops out at me. It has…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion Medieval Song - "A Merchant's Song"
"As I've said before this isn't really my kind of music but it sounded pretty cheerful, nicely produced and reminiscent of wandering musicians who'd stop off and entertain at town plazas and taverns. (Not that I was around in those time, you…"

Timothy Smith replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion Medieval Song - "A Merchant's Song"
"Definitely has that medieval vibe in it. It does sound lively and fun! I guess as a demo the lack of the feeling of space ( no reverb) coupled with the extra tight rhythm would be ok. This is only my opinion, I would probably "humanize" that drum…"

"Thanks Jos and Dane for your comments!  I appreciate the advice and example link.  I've updated the song in the OP.  Basically I added some notes to the chord accompaniment and did some slight additions to the drums.  Thanks again!

Jos Wylin replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion "A Pleasant Ride at the River's Side"
"Hi Ronald
Lovely piece, for sure. Unfortunately the chord accompaniment is a bit dull and the harmony is not always adequate. The recording seems pretty much OK and the flutes are brilliant, as well as their interweaving play. Maybe the percussion…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion "A Pleasant Ride at the River's Side"
"If you're interested on a slightly modern take, can I assume you're familiar with the Mediaeval Baebes? Mostly traditional but they blend with more modern styles occasionally.

For anyone interested:

"Nice but short piece. I think you hit the intended mood brilliantly. I can see the scene in front of me. It will fit perfectly to the movie scene.
Cheers,

Ronald Fontenot replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion My first Original Soundtrack for a Short Children's Film
"Hi Gav,

Thanks for viewing my video and for your feedback.  I was hoping with my story and music that kids would exercise their own imagination for the images.  Today, kids are bombarded with images all the time, but how often do they dream up…"

Gavin Brown replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion My first Original Soundtrack for a Short Children's Film
"Hi Ronald,
I listened to the first five minutes and then jumped ahead and spot-checked at various places. You've certainly got the genre aimed well, it sounds like music for little kids to me. Normally I don't comment on a visual that is attached to…"

Ali Riza SARAL replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion The Old Man's Tale (A Story of Optimism)
"I do not know if I am in the position to say it 'improved' but
making it slower helped.  Why do you insist on using the same
tempo all through the piece?  slow, a bit faster and even more faster
could make it run to its end.

We do make comments…"

"Thanks Gav and Dane for your feedback.  I appreciate it! 
Gav, I thought about your idea of changing the tempo in places (maybe slow down the area where the "leaves are falling") I'm just not sure how to do that effectively.  I use FL Studio, and…"

Ali Riza SARAL replied to Ronald Fontenot's discussion The Old Man's Tale (A Story of Optimism)
"Hi,
To me your ostinato theme sounded a bit short.  This causes the
too much repetition feeling.  Your middle section comes very good.
It would be a good idea to put a number of middle sections and
hence increase the beautiful feeling of return. …"
