Hey guys! I've started to really start focusing on composing and I can't think of a better place to get good feedback.

Patrick, you hit a wrong note 4 times, including the ending! Sounded real quirky first time, was hoping I`d hear again! The piano was reminiscent of a 70`s song about a car . . . lovely stuff. You could use this and add other instruments for additional effect if you so wished.

Have fun!

Thank you very much for listening. I'm not sure exactly what you mean about a wrong note. If I'm playing something that sounds "wrong" it must be written wrong.

Thanks again for your feedback and compliment, I really appreciate it! laugh

Hi Patrick,

Your rhythm is very square and unvarying until the end. I wished you'd done what you did at the end much earlier (to break up the pounding rhythm) and then gone farther. You did some interesting stuff but it was too late.
