Downloaded this a while back and just put it on now. Your piano skills are fine. Sounds like you understand chord progressions and improvisation quite well... It could be much more powerful if you had some drums and strings kick in after the first minute or so for support.

Sounds great tho. What keyboard you using? I'm going to pick up a Korg one of these days...

Yeah, its my own. Thanks for the comments.

I used a Roland. .. XP-80 I believe. It was in the music lab at school. My own keyboard is a (turns around) Casio CTK-611. It's pretty old, and I've lost the adapter while moving,which is why i was using the music lab. I'm planning on getting a new one in Sept or so, if possible.

Hey hey, now check out BEN'S piano composition. It's.... ok wait, listening to it now and he REALLY needs to retrack a bit, since it's converted directly from .it

So... this post will be edited later when the song is fixed.

I AM BEN USING NINKAZU'S ACCOUNT:

Yeah, I hate being the one to sound all preppy snobby stuff, but that song, honestly and truthfully, sounds bad. Too many high notes and no low notes. And it's tooo, uh, what word.....i dunno, bland. I made this .mid for my Grandma's birthday (she loves pianos) so I hope y'all like this one too, or...more............ :rotfl:

::EDIT::
This is Ninkazu, the music is ready to get.
MP3 of the original:

No need to think you're a bad guy for not liking it. There weren't any low notes because I didn't want any in it. Such things  can't be helped. -_o . I only create what I can play in one sitting at an actual piano, so I can't benefit from any tricks with the editing programs I could use to make up for my inabilities. =\

I didn't mind yours. You should probably pick a different string or whatever sort of instrument for that section at the end when the violin-type sounds pop in. It sounded a bit odd and stunted the songs flow. No problems besides that.

Ya, finding a substitute for the actual intrument used was kind of hard. Did you listen to the mp3?

I just did. Bizarre, I didn't really even notice the part with the strings this time. Or did you use the strings for that bit near the end where the soundtrack sound plays? The effect of that on the song was similar to what I thought of the strings, so its probably just an odd placement and not really an issue with the sound itself. Do you have an all piano version? The sort for sitting down and playing to sheet music or some such?
