To me this has the making of a great reggae tune. Why not listen to a little reggae to get in the mood, and then remix your tune with a “rasta vibe.” You could speed it up a little, maybe use more closed hi-hat instead of open, add some echo to the guitar, and tighten everything up. A little bit of a loose groove is appropriate for reggae, but as has been pointed out, your song lacks a “pocket” as it stands now. I would make it longer too. Why not? More money for you.

BINGO! E-Flex is right. And this is good info if you’re not aware of it. I added some keywords, then I requested the song be moved, and it is now in the queue. So if you don’t attach audio files, then you need to make a keyword change in order to be accepted for an update review.

I think (but don’t quote me on this) that it just stays live as it was until a reviewer gets to it, and once they have made the changes it moves over, this way there is no downtime on the item.
Thanks, but that’s not what I’m talking about. Anybody?

I was told that you don’t need to attach audio files if you just want to have the reviewer add some new keywords or move a song to a different category. Yet when I try it and click submit, it just takes me to the song’s page and I get no indication that anything has happened. Am I missing something?

Would a little bit of ambiance on the finger snap, maybe lowered a db and a half, help it sit in the mix a little bit better? Just wondering.

I’m lifting my head out of my own “sound cloud” to say “bravo!”

...in the middle of NASCAR on Fox. But I checked and I never sold an extended license for that track. That sucks. It’s not the money, and they only used a part of the intro and outro, but still. I wonder how often that happens, and if it’s happened to anyone else here.

No denying it was kind of neat. NASCAR driver Clint Boyer and golfer Jim Furyk were in it.

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow USAers. To everyone else…be thankful you don’t have to eat any green bean casserole today. Or yams.

This gets talked about every so often, changes are hinted at, and things continue as they were. When you’ve got a new track that has sold, say, twice, and one of the two buyers, for whatever reason, gives it a three star rating (even though he or she liked it enough to buy it), the damage is done. You’ve got a low selling track with a diminished rating. One of my Christmas tracks had a nice run of sales last season, with no ratings until the very last when somebody decided to rate it three stars. Thanks. I’m sure that will hurt sales this year.

A system that allows one person’s single opinion to to count as a rating, with the very public stars that go with it, seems misguided to me. In lieu of a different system altogether, a greater amount of votes should be required before a rating is displayed.

It’s past time for this to be fixed.
