  • minty901 of course id be willing to share my thoughts. youve been kind enough to do so for me, and it was really helpful. dont feel pressured to though if you arent comfortable sharing things, i would understand that.

  • minty901 As for where to upload, soundcloud is good for a demo track or two because its so quick to upload a simple mp3 or something. I prefer Bandcamp for neater, more put-together stuff and the sound quality is better but its very slow to upload and you have to upload lossless format. Bandcamp isn't really supposed to be for demos its more for final releases, but I like the layout of it so I use it for demos.

  • minty901 I think everyone thinks the same way that you do. I certainly do all the time. I need validation because I'm terrified what I'm doing is s***. But I think (hope) that if we find something to like in our own music (and we must I guess or it would never progress beyond one measure), then someone else will like it too. I have shown work friends the same demos that I've shown you and they've been like "it's alright i guess..." but shown no interest. Everyones tastes are different.

  • minty901 .....until it got to where it is now. Fortunately with the music I'm putting together, I like "through-composed" music a lot, where it wanders off and doesn't really conclude... and for me thats the easiest thing to write because I just move onto the next random idea without overthinking anything... then it's at a later date when I come back and overthink everything, but like I said the backbone is usually quite quick, like an evening or two, then the pedantic tinkering is over 2 months or so.

  • minty901 I tend to do lots of little attempts at songs that sound crap and go nowhere, then once every couple of months I get motivated and come out with a barebones version of a song in about 2 days that im fairly happy with. Then its weeks of constant tweaking for VERY little return. Most of the tracks I've spent weeks on aren't much better than they were 3 hours after I started which can be annoying. Track 4 was a quick burst of an idea probably once a month over the course of a year and a half.......
