Nice thread :)

My avatar is a real “celtic-inspired” seven-string guitar I crafted some years ago, from a boring black one… You can check it here

Not really old yet, but definitely one I loved composing: Prayer

Give it some time to build up, and you may hear some angels :)

Hey, great track! But I think in the youtube description the duration is off (it says 3:19 in the description but the song is only 1:32 long)

Thanks, I clarified the description in YT…

Thanks for the comments :)

I’m in love with Stockwaves’ “Wild Party” Can’t understand how it would not fit AJ’s collections…

Nevermind, there is not accounting for taste… the best thing for us is to compose new tracks…

Hey there

Just had a listen at “Something good will happen”, I like the swinging a lot, nice relaxed tune. I don’t know why they rejected you, but here are my comments that may help: - drums are poor, seem like a one bar loop with no fills, no rolls, no stereo presence - your main instrument is mixed very loud (guitar in the first part, then the piano melody, then piano+bells)

hope this helps —ventilo35

Hello

I find it strange that you give up on some tracks you like just because some instruments compete with your speaker. I mean, if you want to add a voice-over basically you have to mix the music and the voice together, and part of the job is to EQ them so that they do not compete.

Typically I suppose you would EQ down the music between 200Hz and 400Hz (depending if your speaker is male or female) and between 2kHz and 4kHz for the intelligibility of the voice. Conversely you would cut down the voice below 100 or 150 Hz to leave the bass frequencies to the music, and perhaps add a deesser if needed (cuts high frequencies for sibillance problems). You could also use a side-chain compressor so that the perceived volume of the music is reduced whenever the speaker talks.

Hope this helps…

Hi

I listened to a few tracks from your portfolio, in my humble opinion your music is very nice. I’d suggest that you go on with learning since you’re motivated, and that you take example on the top sellers here with respect to production (mixing, mastering), and strive to get the clear, big sound that they deliver. This is my personal goal :D

PS: do you know Delusion Squared ? Your profile uses a font very similar to their logo and since you enjoy Progressive Rock… :)

That’s a hell of a track!

I would support the palm mutes at 0:30 with hihat or ride cymbals

I would try to get more air from the drums, they sound a bit muddy/harsh (snare and cymbals)

I don’t like the tremolo effect on the cymbals, it is not in sync with the tempo (or is it a compressor pumping ?)

my two cents :)
