    Anywho, Strad and Gofriller, and some K2 Woodwinds.

    P.S., Jerry W. is still a mean Ogre.

    It has potential!

    Nice overall sound. Pleasing character.

    The Strad needs to be brought forward in gain a tad.

    Keep up the good work and finish this.

    Nice work! Very catchy melody; that popular chord progression yields countless delights. It feels like its missing something though, perhaps more bass? Feels sort of unbalanced. Perhaps try calming down all the instruments to make the main melody stand out a bit more?

    Also, I'm hearing sort of a static sound in the background...

    Great to see you composing from scratch, I'm proud of you! (Soon you will be even more famous!) Keep it up!

    Sam,

    What happened, it stopped at 1:26
    Nice counterpoint. I can't believe I just wrote that, me a philistine.
    I thought the portamento was overused, it made it a little predictable.
    Not a big issue though, I enjoyed this Sam.

    My Best

    Ray

    Nice beginning. Very gentle, relaxing theme. You weren't thinking of a famous Passacaglia that is usually (wrongly) called a canon, were you? Keep at it and be sure to post the final version.

    A beautiful start.

    nicely done. is this based on the circle of fifths progression?

    now i hope you realize how much fun (and how hard) writing is, and that you're hooked like the rest of us. keep it up.
