@00:43Sepiroth has a really cool theme song. Aeris has flowers. I know nothing of final fantasty, I know most of it just from seeing cosplay pics here on deviantart.

Composition practice.

I've been browsing the youtubes for videos on composition. I remembered an old melody I wrote years ago but never been able to work out, and decided to apply some of the techniques I leaned on it. This is the result.

Please tell me what you think.

@01:23Hmm, voice crossing. I didn't take that into account at all! Thanks for pointing that out.

@01:23composers usually don't, unless they are trying to be technically correct.

@01:23Interesting. I'm going to have to try my hands on technical correctness then. Gotta try everything at least once, eh? :D

@01:21Great composition, it summed up a lot of emotions I felt during my experience of playing Final Fantasy VII. It also, illustrates the feeling I get when I compose using old midi soundfonts.

@01:23Well composed.
You had all the elements that are needed.
(though I personally prefer piano over guitar)
Also in the last stretch when the guitar comes back in it was...perhaps a bit much.
It still sounded good but almost overkill...

@01:23Thank you.

I actually tried what it sounded like with a piano, but the guitar chords didn't really work for piano. I would have to change those to piano chords and make that work, but I'm a better guitarist than a pianist, and I like the guitar sound here. It's personal preference, I suppose, yeah.

And the guitar overkill? Would that be the fill leading up to the last couple of measures, or just those measures themselves? Becuase I personally thought the strummed guitar added a bit of rythm which would work because of the lack of percussion. Also, it makes the last tutti a bit fuller than the one at the beginning.

Thanks for the feedback.

@01:23The "overkill" I thought was that the guitar played a whole lot of notes..
I read through the notes once and it sounds great if you play it out but in a program like (I'm guessing Finale) it sounds chopped up.. Thats all =)

@01:23It's Guitar Pro actually.
Maybe they sound chopped up because they are strummed, one string after another, because that's the way a real guitar is played too and all the notes at once sound like an unnatural explosion of tones. But who am I to talk about unnatural when it's MIDI. ;p
