Description : Here's a song i've been dwelling on. Because it's a bit cheesy.... I used the acapella by 3v3sound to start with. Then slowly put together a happy/ upbeat/ feel good track. No mastering. Please comment. But more importantly criticize, please do. My only ever goal is to improve my work. So be as harsh as you like to prove your point. I can handle it =).
"your bass is weak," is much more valuable to me than "nice job man".

but! "your bass is weak, Try this..." is helpful too =)

Loops used:

"With Love" (acapella)

Who can say if it's weird because it's made from samples? That's not for me to judge. I think the arrangement is important, and if you are comfortable building from samples, then why not do it? The key of the song isn't that mysterious, by the way. It's easy to tell that something is off when the vocals play during the piano. It just sounds like the two weren't made to be together. Why not try a different piano or different vocals? Also, thanks for your comments about my music. I appreciate that too.

You misunderstand me. I meant that this song was made starting with nothing but the acapella, and progressed from that. I had a go at searching for another acapella that suits, but no luck. I shall take this as a hit and miss, but I understand what you mean.. I am so oblivious to the clashing of keys in this song..
Your comments are an eye opener.. I really need to study up on my music theory =\ and knowledge of keys. Thanks for listening. I appreciate your advice and i'll keep an eye out for your next upload.

Hmmmmmmm....I felt like I was listening to a Mashup rather than a proper song....at times it sounds pop, then cinematic, then possibly a hint of R&B. You might want to rethink where you are trying to go with the tune, and maybe you will be able to strip away the parts that are not in synch with your intention. So, basically I suppose what I'm saying is I don't hear any cohesion. Also, the vocals are not in the same key as the instrumental.

Good luck and keep it going!

Love & Light,

I see what you mean. It's not a very good structure for a proper song is it.. To be entirely honest, I did not have any true intentions for this track... I was just experimenting i guess.. And I can see why it sounds like a mashup (it is a mashup). If i take away the current vocal the track sounds retarded. If i leave it in the different keys clash. Cohesion, I'll remember this. As for keys, I most definitely need to do some homework and ear training.

I shall not stop at this though. May I ask some of the things you consider, in terms of structure, when writing a song?

I appreciate your honest opinions.

Peace,

Paora

I like the music a lot, but the vocals don't go well with it. There are two different musical keys going on, and they clash. You might want to consider different vocals to match the song. Good luck

Thanks, I appreciate your opinion. I don't know a lot about keys, but mayb i should get familiar with them. you're good. i just listened to a handful of your tunes. I like the arrangement & progressiveness of them a lot, not to mention the mix is flawless... Is it weird that i made this track from that sample tho?

Description : Updated 1/7/2023. This is a progressive fusion flavored jazz number. I called on fellow Looperman DISCIPLINE to season this composition with that FIRE GUITAR, and he did! Let me know your thoughts on this one. Enjoy.

==============
Inspired by a track of Pseudoble. I was noodling along to his track "I wish I didn't know" (which is awesome) and had the words "Snow in Athens" in my head. This with the smooth jazz/fusion atmosphere led me to this track with a sort of Steely Dan feel.

Description : Psychedelic blues hip hop with lead banjo and acoustic resonator slide guitar. Acoustic drum kits, fat basslines, soaring filtered strings, some strong Eastern elements (from guitar and strings), some dub and funk from the bass and drums and a bit of rocking electric guitar. Very unusual piece of music and a trip like no other I've heard. Some of it is like a dark, deep Southern delta blues track over a hip hop and dub backing. All played and programmed by me, no loops used.

Description : the rise of AI
this i would describe as hip-hop space rock, last night of the proms sort :))
its different, a fusion of genres, this is all played by me, no loops. got a little more music theory now, so put it to the test.
its my first attempt at writing something myself and hopefully show i can produce a bit too. i wanted all the instruments to have their place but to shine alone, let me know if you think i achieved my description.

Description : Return To Forever was a group that started my love of fusion jazz and this is my attempt to cover their 1976 track, “The Romantic Warrior. I know I wore out several inceptions of this album from LP, cassette and 8 track. The original track was over 10 minutes long, so I abridged it some. Hope you like and download.

Description : Found some 70's funk drum loops that I liked and added some funk horn loops. Then I found some effects and percussion loops that worked well with the bass loops I found. Yeah, all loops but 1 vocal track of mine. :) Funk/fusion? Might be cool to have some hip hop styled vox on this, any takers?

Description : It is pretty hard to set a genre to this music sorry. So if someone have a better idea about what genre it is feel free to tell me.For that one I focused on the melodies instead the complexity (a lot of instrument with fx). So basically this tune is a piano one featuring piano, organ and 2 synths only no drum or fx.All those instrument follow the same melodie(composed by myself took me hours for that XD) The name is due my mom loved that one as the one I did for her long time ago.This is more a experimentation for me so plz have that in mind when you will write a comment.Also there are a surprise at 1:42 min.Hope you will enjoy this one.I also profit to say all my works will be avaliable to download without having to post a comment for the may 30 only.the reason is a mystery.
