This is a composition of mine that I thought I would share.

Critique is welcomed.

Gone With the Wind

Here's an opinion...that chord progression is very common and because you are playing eveything with the root on the bottom I don't hear enough differentiation in the sounds you put together. Personally I would stay away from a song title such as yours because it has an immediate connection to the movie and its' music.

in the end...if you like it...who cares what anyone else really thinks...

Thanks for the review Rada: Actually this is a piano arrangement of a song that has lyrics. It's about a lost love "Gone With the Wind".

Here is the song with vocal and recorder air.

Personally I found it a bit boring, felt just like noodling around with a chord progression. It held very little harmonic or melodic interest for me.

And I 100% agree with Rada, I would stay away from that title. Before I even listened, I had a negative connotation, because I'm not a big fan of the movie. Even if that negative connotation wasn't there - a piece with a title like this will trigger an association with the movie, and that's probably something you don't want.

I thought it was pleasant enough if one is in the mood for something slow & mellow. 8ude says it's boring but even the one & only Beethoven is boring if you're not in the mood.

But I wouldn't give it that title either.

Thanks to all for the comments and opinions. I appreciate your time and attention.

About the title: I won't likely change it because it is the hook line in the vocalized version of the song.

It is pretty Joe. However, it would be wise to make some melody and chord changes to make it more original. Some minor alterations could make it more yours. Try to use some counterpoint as well. That could add a new dimension to the music.

Again, it sounds very nice, but I'm afraid because of the familiarity, publishers may be afraid to touch it for fear of copyright infringement.

If you wanted something slightly different in title that could possibly work, maybe: "She's Gone With the Wind".

Best, John smile
