This is another instrumental song I have created. To your ears is this decent to listen to. Need feedback.

Irwin,
It was a little hard to listen to it all through. You could benefit from trying to focus on some interesting melody lines, progressing from " statement and response " or " question and answer " which is what music is constructed from. Most styles of music can be broken down to these basic parts.

Examples: Beethoven's 5th,
William Tell Overture Final,
JS Bach
Fugue in D. Something newer ? ok how about the Beatles Hey Jude?.
Listen carefully to each of these examples and anything you like to listen to actually, and dissect the patterns, you hear and note how they go together. If you want to improve, you could benefit from some lessons either free on line or private. Also study chord structures and chord progressions to understand flow and then set out to create from that. I believe you have potential and determination, and some passion, you only need to apply proper techniques to improve. I encourage you to carry on with some direction.

Hi Irwin

As a stand alone piece it sounded sweet enough, but for me it was a little staccato and jumpy throughout. I suppose it depends on what you intend to use it for, I think it could work quite well with an animated video, which may be worth considering.

I enjoyed the listen

Nigel

I didn't know you played keyboard?? Nice little tune, anyone can fit a lyric in there if you are thinking it...having a bit more of a change up in it could help it move more, but it is nice!

Hi TamsNumber, Thanks for listening. And yes I thank you too for the lyric idea I wasn't thinking about that. Nice to hear from you.
