Alicia relaxing

This is my song for the contest.

I tried to capture that feeling when your were young, having summer from school and the days seemed endless. When you drifted and didn´t have any specific things to do but just relax.

Very nice song. Like the vocals and feeling of it in general. Like the cello too. It is such a great instrument. I use it very often myself too.

Thank you Jonathan. I agree with the cello. I’m absolutely crazy in experimenting with string instruments.

Hey man, loved your piece. The piano is lovely. I use alicias keys a lot!!

Think you captured that youthful feeling really well. Something You may consider doing next time which could add even more expression to your piece I gradually, but subtly slowing down slightly for a few bars at the end of your phrases and than go right back to your original tempo. This accents them and makes more out of your slower swells. :smiley:

Well done man!!

Thank you very much. I absolutely agree about tempo changing to add extra dimension. I actually started a thread earlier to hear how people work with them.

Thank you David. I really love nylon guitar with some reverb as a solo instrument.

I liked the use of reverb.

Really niiiiiiiiice.
For me, the effects (sea, birds…) and maybe the little percussion are not necessary. They disturb more than add.

Thank you very much. Great feedback. Yes I know. I was playing around trying to learn automation with panning on effects.

This was one of my favourites. Great job :clap:
