Hey everyone, I would love for you all to listen to my songs! They’re all completely instrumental (no lyrics). Go to the website called “Soundcloud” and type “MiddlePath CR” in the search box in the upper right hand corner. They aren’t exactly to everyone’s musical taste, but I wouldn’t mind feedback.
I hope the mods let this through..
Thanks Queen Bee for encouraging me to do this.September 1, 2011 5:52 pm at 5:52 pm #806526miritchkaMember

middlepath- i ahve a question!!!! howd u make the beats and all tht? did u use a program or something? howd u do ittt??September 1, 2011 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #806531
miritchka- Thanks! And yes, I just put up a third one, it should be there…maybe you have to click on my profile to see it.
Queen Bee- Thanks, and thanks for the idea to do this. 🙂
happiest- Hope you enjoy them, and no, I don’t know her from before the CR.
workinonit- I used a digital drumpad for the beats. Sounds similar to real drums, but not exactly the same.September 1, 2011 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #806532babygooseParticipant
you asked for critic, here it is:
too much base guitar in 2,
and 3 really reminds me of s/t else
no time to listen to 1
i must say it’s beautiful for a beginner and there’s way to go!
( my grandpa is a music coordinator and has an orchestra, i plan on heading in that direction)September 1, 2011 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #806533TheGoqParticipant

Thanks, PrincessEagle.September 2, 2011 3:42 am at 3:42 am #806538brotherofursParticipant
wow theyre so cool i like the first and second best, but really all theyre all very good!:D , idk how people compose songs- sounds so hard!September 2, 2011 4:55 am at 4:55 am #806539
Thanks, brotherofurs! It just takes practice, patience, and some basic knowledge of music.September 2, 2011 5:20 am at 5:20 am #806540
MP, you’re making me want to get back into the piano 🙂September 2, 2011 7:04 am at 7:04 am #806541WIYMember
What’s the quickest way to learn how to compose. I am musical and can make up a song but don’t know much about music per se. What would I need to learn?
TIA.September 2, 2011 7:45 am at 7:45 am #806542mustangriderMember
Wow middle those are amazing! My fave is 2 🙂 keep em comin!September 2, 2011 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #806543
Queen Bee- Great! I could really use a pianist in my band! 🙂
WIY- Well, it’s important to know what style you are influenced by. Once you know that, you can take specific chord progressions used in that type of music and create your own combinations from them, and have a root note that they all flow in to. That’s probably the best way to quickly make up a song. That’s really what I do.
There’s also learning complex music theory to understand what goes with what, but that’s complicated. Also, if you have an ear for music, it makes things easier.
mustangrider- Thanks! Song 2 is my “heaviest” song. And I will definitely keep them coming!September 2, 2011 3:21 pm at 3:21 pm #806544WIYMember
I would have to learn to play guitar to know what a chord progression is and I would probably have to know how to play some instrument to properly comprehend theory correct?September 2, 2011 3:30 pm at 3:30 pm #806545TheGoqParticipant
Really great stuff mp you have alot of talent.September 2, 2011 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #806546
WIY- Not necessarily. A chord progression is basically a certain amount of chords (chords are just a combination of notes) that are played in a specific order. Chords are named after their “root” note, or the note that is most dominant in that chord, such as A, C, G, and so on. Some styles of music have certain chord progressions that are very common in that style.
To understand music theory, it helps greatly if you play an instrument, but not a requirement. I actually don’t fully know music theory. I compose most of my songs by ear, and by combining chord progressions commonly found in the type of music I am influenced by.
Thanks, Goq.September 2, 2011 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #806547adorableParticipant

Mazal tov, Adorable!September 4, 2011 3:24 am at 3:24 am #806552ilovetheholylandParticipant
they are AWESOME!!! music is one of the most IMPORTANT things in my life and im always so thankfull that i play an instrument. whenever im feeling down, thats what i do….your music is unbelievable. i especially LOVE number one (would be awesome with lyrics!!!) dunno if you know what im talking about but the beginning sorta reminds me of Scarborough Fair – one of my favs!September 4, 2011 6:20 am at 6:20 am #806553yossi z.Member
hmm this is making me want to get back into music … (singer/composer)
😀 Zuberman! 😀September 4, 2011 7:11 am at 7:11 am #806554

yossi- Great!September 4, 2011 2:18 pm at 2:18 pm #806555bombmaniacParticipant
scarborough fair is liek one of my favourite songs in like the whole ever universe thingy. when i was taking voice lessons i was forced to sing it over and over again until i could do it perfectly…omg what evenSeptember 4, 2011 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #806556ilovetheholylandParticipant
i play keyboard and piano….

Hey everyone, I just put up another song of mine! This one is just an acoustic guitar jam made up of different individual pieces I’ve composed. It’s easy listening. Hope you all like it!September 4, 2011 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #806558
Verrah nice like #2 can you put up a cover of something niceSeptember 4, 2011 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #806559
Thanks, Rebel. What would you like a cover of?September 4, 2011 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #806560always hereParticipant
I listened to song 3 & part of song 2 a couple of hrs. ago & enjoyed them.
a drum pad, really?! my 1st husband was a drummer & I thought those were drums! 🙂September 5, 2011 1:14 am at 1:14 am #806561
Good to hear, always! Yes, the drum pad is pretty realistic, but if you listen real closely you can tell they’re fake. Like the crash cymbal dies out very quickly, the snare has no variation.. But I’m glad you enjoyed them!September 5, 2011 3:20 am at 3:20 am #806562☕️coffee addictParticipant
maybe you guys can make a cr bandSeptember 5, 2011 4:11 am at 4:11 am #806563
Hey, MiddlePath. I finally had time to listen to your last song. AWESOME!! I love the part at 4:20.September 5, 2011 4:17 am at 4:17 am #806564
Surprise me with some classic rockSeptember 5, 2011 4:52 am at 4:52 am #806565
coffee, I’d love to!
Queen Bee, thanks! That song is really just a combination of a bunch of different compositions I made…But I’ll admit, it’s pretty. 😉
Rebel, I will! Should it be an instrumental? With lyrics? With my own lyrics? I’m thinkin a little GnR.September 5, 2011 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #806566i love coffeParticipant
WOW MiddlePath. You are amazing! Just heard your songs. They are great! Keep on going. I cant stop listening to them. I like song 3 at 4:03 (my fave part)and my fovorite is song 4! It’s the best!!!September 5, 2011 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #806567
Can you sing also?September 5, 2011 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #806568
Mama kin?September 5, 2011 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #806570sweettoothMember
MP verry nice!
Alotta feelings there…
A Great opportunity ahead of you! You are a great Sound Designer you have the feelings.September 5, 2011 10:16 pm at 10:16 pm #806571
i love coffe, thanks!
Rebel, I can sing and carry a tune, but I don’t think I have a great sounding voice. And Mama Kin is a good choice. I’m thinking Wayward Son, Don’t Cry, or Nothing Else Matters..what do you think?
Thanks, sweettooth! If you can come up with lyrics and sing also, that would be awesome! Do you have your compositions on a CD or computer? I’d love to hear them.September 6, 2011 12:53 am at 12:53 am #806573
I understand, cleverjewishpun. If you want, I think you can leave a comment on the actual Soundcloud page..Or post here, and maybe leave out specific references to bands or songs. Hope you enjoy!September 6, 2011 2:44 am at 2:44 am #806575
Perhaps, or it could be that the people who complained before have not looked at this thread yet..Or better yet, maybe they accepted that there are different, equally valid views on the subject. Either way, I’m looking forward to your comments!September 6, 2011 3:53 am at 3:53 am #806576
Nuu get to work!! How bout “dear g-d”September 6, 2011 4:28 am at 4:28 am #806577
Oooh, A7X! Nice choice…I’m actually in the process of doing Nothing Else Matters..hope to have it up soon. Gotta work around my school schedule.
