Flutter By, Fluttershy - An Original Instrumental for Fluttershy Day

Recommended Posts

Hey, everypony! Bo here with an original and soothing instrumental track dedicated to best pony Fluttershy.

 

Since it's Fluttershy Day over on Equestria Daily, I thought today would be the perfect time to share this track with you all.

 

I sincerely hope you enjoy it.

 

Happy Best Pony Fluttershy Day!

Ok. 

 

It's an okay listen. 

 

However, the biggest problem with this piece is that you limited yourself to the I and the IV knowing that this piece is in the key of G major. It became very repetitive, which was a huge turn-off for me in this piece. 

 

Here are some chord suggestions

 

I-IV-vi-V

 

iii-ii-IV+9-I

 

IM7-Isus4-vi-IV

 

I-V-vi-IV

 

vi-V-IV-V

 

There are many more suggestions I can give you. 

 

The piano could use a drop of chorus to give it a little watery type of feel. Also, instead of using only broken 5ths and 4ths, why not play arpeggiated 9th chord and 7th chord licks with a slight slapback delay added. The delay volume shouldn't be that loud. 

 

The strings should glide from one chord to the next. There's a cut after each chord in the strings. It's a nice string sound though, but why not add a polysynth behind the acoustic strings to give it that ambient sound you were looking for?

 

That plucked sine wave was very effective. However, maybe have a plucked semi-popcorn lead playing 7th chords and 9th chord licks along with the piano. 

 

All in all, it's a good start, but it could use quite a bit of development. I'm here if you need any help with what I explained.
