It's good isn't it?!
This is a song I've written and I thought i'd post it here. Feel free to post your own and share your work with other!
This is called Moonlight, and this is only the start of it but still...I've only had my Mini for a few hours so...

I think I should suggest constructive considering for any replies to posts here.

On that note, I liked the song, though I found the guitar riff getting confused with the rest of the song. Once you get into the song and the singing with all of those loops, it starts to sound jarbled, I guess. I would suggest cutting out or toning down the guitar riff a little once the singing starts, or to start another guitar riff that matches the first one. Either way, you need to cut down on the loops once you add the singing in there.

I'll try to dig up some stuff I made in Acid Pro. It's exactly like GarageBand, but it's made by Sonic Foundry, Inc. Sony uses a clone and releases it with their VAIO PCs.

Of course, constructive comments are always appreciated, but equally I can appreciate other people's tastes of music may be different to mine...for example, I really hate R&B with a passion...and by the way, I don't have a day job anyway, as I am only a teenager...still, I hope to be a musician when I'm older and I already have a record contract Wink
Anyway, I toned down the riff and changed the drum beat...haven't posted the new one though!

That's great! I can't wait to hear more!

I've been toying with GB since my mini arrived a few weeks ago, I've found ways of hooking my existing recording equipment to my mini, and I should have my mini recording studio up and running pretty soon. I ordered a Midi Keyboard too to help with making loops and diff. Drum beats. I can't wait to get crackin'

It doesn't play for me, I think it's cause I only have a little trial version of QT on my computer or something, STILL don't know my mini, yes, I know I've been talking about saving for awhile, but I want to get it exactly how I want it, No Settling For Me!

I like it a lot better once he starst signing, but it still sounds odd towards the beginning. Once you start to bring in all the loops, right after you add the drum lopp, it combines with the guitar riff and sounds funny to me. I think it'd be better with a different drumline, or to wait to add that until he starts singing.

You think you could actually post a picture of the GB file? I could tell you what I'm talking about if I actually see the layout of the loops.
