Just had a listen - sounds great.
Not sure where you want this sound to go so it's a bit hard to give ideas. You have such a unique style I dont think my ideas would be any good.
I would would probably go into a bass line without the melody or a shortened different kind of melody. Something to mix it up. Probably a different beat to go with it. ( but thats just me)
You have a nice sound quality going. I really like the loud claps . Has a nice Reverb.
Thanks for the feedback Steve , I am still working on that track. Has taken some bits out and new ones in. I know what you mean about the intro and long parts without a driving beat.
Keep me posted on what your upto next

Cheers for the pointers. I can get great sounds but i have trouble making my sounds turn into complete compositions . Apparently Beethoven worked this way... so maybe one day my opus will be unveiled.
 I do think though its due mainly to the nature of my other  job.... sadly i crave more time for music. lol I had an argument with my wife over your last track so i am so glad you got what i was saying. My wife kept saying i like it and I was saying "Yeah me too"  Smile.  I am working on an album. I have two full tracks now... But it very slow going. Oh and I have to work on getting some words to some of it..... Good thing is I think I can do it now I just have to work out what i want to say....Wink Keep the music playing all....

New track I put together over the last week. Already had most of the parts sitting there gathering dust. Thought I would at least release something from it.

I tried really working on the mix and mastering, I think it might have a bit to much gain in the 10khz area.
But I think every part kind of sits in its own space. The piano I double tracked, same as the accoustic guitar.
The kick and bass were a pain as usual, managed to get the kick coming through a bit better than normal.
The bass is so bad in my studio space I had to do the mix in my headphones. They are a half decent pair of AKG's (k271 MK2)

Worthy of an unearthed track mate ? Is the kick an acoustic drum ? sounds good, thought it was a bit squashed but my headphones are more likely the cause of that i want to play it now on my krk/s but the boy is asleep. Where do get singers... is that you...? Damn you beat me to that  I want  singing on a my tracks . I'll have to move to a city or scalp singers from churches. BTW I wish I could play the trumpet bits.....live. maybe i should play again. Great track!!!  

Was alone with abelton
 for a few hours and came up with this. hope you like it. Comment appreciated. :)

Probably my favorite piece by you. Well done.
Some nice sounds happening. I like the atmospheric pads, kick drum is solid.
You could really bring out the emotion more if you stopped the kick somewhere in the middle for a 20 second break/build.
Also looking at your waveform , your track may want some compression on the master to squash some peaks and bring up the quieter sounds . Just a suggestion, I could be wrong.

Thanks for the comment btw, The vocalists that was going to sing changed her mind, so I just used a sample in that track. Wasn't my first choice... I had to transpose the sample down 2 semitones to fit the key I wrote the piano on, then change some chords etc...  My experience is vocalists can be hard to organize :) sometimes it may be easier to use a sample lol

SUNDAY POST

Not my best work as it was a rushed assignment. Quickly MIDI mapped some bass which didn't turn out as well as expected.
Mixed through headphones and a Behringer console using a couple average outboard effects, dbx compressor and a lexicon reverb.
As it was rushed and not used to the console eq's the mix didn't really turn out how I imagined..
Anyway thats what I worked on last week, and thought I would start posting here again.
Cheers!

Oh and that's my dodgy tambourine skills haha, first time ...
