    Black Metal and mlp?

    But as hard hitting and rough around the edges as Black Metal is...maybe punk metal or something a bit lighter would fit. Punk, in terms of lyrics really hones down on the realistic struggles of life and can hit the darker stuff.

    Eh...I think that may be pushing the envelope a little...too far for pony music don't you think?

    It's very possible. The one thing about the lyrics it that you're going to really have to pay attention and think critically. You must show emotions and create allegorical connections with characters and certain illustrations. The point is, it will be very difficult to write the lyrics because of the emotional aspect and emotional dealing. As for instrumentals, don't get too carried away and end up drowning your vocals behind the rest of your instruments.

    Especially since young ones may wanna come and see it...like do they HAVE to put the inappropriate jokes in there? No...but they want to because a lot of people think that's funny these days...

    You're In My Head Like a Catchy Song Music Box Remix

    What I meant was that everything from vocal melody to acomponying harmonies would have the sound of a music box

    You're In My Head Like a Catchy Song Music Box Remix

    It's a nice remix, but...feels like it could be called more of a "vintage" remix...music box would mean everything, from vocal melody to accompanying harmony has a music box sound. Other than that, good remix

    EP thing I kinda hastily put together

    Always will? Dude, no need to put yourself down like that. It needs work, but you can get better just by practicing and asking did help. I can tutor you in music theory and production. Would you like that?

    Logan It was a great movie, but yeesh the feeling coming out of the theater after that movie was just so...melancholy...it was like people walking silently out of a funeral. Don't get me wrong the action was amazing in that movie but jeez...

    Problem with Ryan Reynolds is that they're gonna wanna put inappropriate jokes in this movie. Honestly, it kinda feels like Boss Baby because you had the same deal, guy plays a baby that sounds like a grown man. I think it's great a live action pokemon film is coming, but I'm just worried about the execution of the plotline.

    Ok. I must be honest. All of these tracks need a lot of work. You stuck around the same idea on all of them (varying the first one on a few sections). You need to work on developing your ideas. Fabulous Los Pegasus Kudos to using a solid 4-chord progression but it stales out after a bit. Knowing you were in the key of f minor for the first one, here are some suggestions for alternate progressions i-VI-III-V VI-VII-III-V iv-III-i-V III-i-VI-VII There are many more progressions you can use. Your percussion could use some fills and variation as the beat staled out early. Plus, the harshness of the kick and clap did not really match with that smooth funky style you had running. A jazz or vintage hip-hop kit would work best for this piece. Also, slow the piece down. It feels rushed. In terms of your instrument and sounds, a nice and clean tenor or alto sax would work better than that piercing solo lead. The slap bass needs some chorus on it, as it sounds rather dry. The electric piano was nice but maybe calm it down and add some tremolo chords on sections that mellow out. All in all, this one has potential but it still needs quite a bit of work on developing your ideas. Snowing in Ponyville Really gotta be honest here: you gotta rework this one. The percussion should be absent, let alone a few long reverberated kicks for ambience. The melody is ok, but I think a more bell-like lead would really show the delicacy and beauty of snow in a town like ponyville. Eliminate the sweeping sawtooths. They are too aggressive for the theme and atmosphere of the piece. Warm pads, air choirs and an arpeggiated beep lead would be your best shot at conveying the theme of a snowy ponyville. In terms of your chords, you limited yourself to the IM7, ii and vi knowing you are in the key of C# Major. You need a solid 4 chord progression if you really want to develop your ideas. This is the problem I see with most musicians here. They create an idea, but then they don't how (or don't want to) develop it. If you wanna grow, you gotta learn to think outside the box. Here are some suggestions for progressions: ii-I-iii-vi I-ii-vi-V IV-ii-I-vi ii-IV-i-vi vi-IV-I-V I-iii-vi-ii There are many more suggestions I can give you. All in all, as I said before, this piece needs reworking. You need to learn how to utilize your chords in a way that it can keep your listener engaged and want to keep on listening to your music. Midnight In Manehatten This one needs work. You let the electro style dominate for most of the piece, which added a little too much sharpness, especially on the kick. If you're going for a chill style, your kick should not be harsh. The piece sped up at 1:55. I suggest you keep it at the same tempo, because it takes away the relaxed vibe and adds some tension and rushed feelings. Really, the biggest thing with this piece is that you tried to insert too much into this piece, especially at the beginning. You had a melody line on an upper sawtooth and then introduced a middle line on a midway sawtooth suddenly. Again, your sawtooths are too aggressive for this style. You need to look for some woodwind (specifically clarinet and saxophone) sounds if you want to perform this style of chill funk. In terms of your chords, your progressions felt scattered. You went around the I, IVM7, vi and ii knowing you are in the key of C Major. Again, you used 4 chords but did not organize them in such a fashion that you could divde them into phrases of 8. Here are some suggestions for some other progressions: ii-V-IM7-IVM7 IV-V7-vi-V7 of V vim7-IVM7-V7-IM7 IV-V-IM7add9-VI7 There are many other progressions you can use. All in all, these pieces need a ton of work. You need to learn how to develop and organize your ideas in a way that it engages with the listener. It's not all about how many tracks you make, it's all about taking the time to create something that you and your audiences will enjoy. Please don't be discouraged by my feedback, for no one is perfect but we can strive to be the best we can. If you have any questions about what I said, shoot me a PM.
