Don't know what to do about my song?

Asked by rentluva5256 (555points) March 23rd, 2010

I wrote a song on noteflight and I got a comment saying that it was good and they couldn’t wait until the next part(because I wasn’t finished with it.) But then I got a comment saying that it stunk. Should I reply and ask why? Or should I just let it be?

Ask why. There is always room for improvement!

About your song? You know, it’s a little bit funny this feeling inside. I’m not one of those who can easily hiiide. I don’t have much money, but boy, if I did, I’d buy a big house where we both could liiive.

When I cook for a group I always tell them to give me their honest opinions because if they don’t like it I want to know why and if they do like it I want to know the same. In both cases so I can build on what works and understand what doesn’t. At the same time it’s important to keep perspective, you can’t please everyone, and trying to often leads to failure. In the end, what’s most important is, you’re happy with it.

@jjmah I now it’s not much but it’s the best I can do.

I don’t know this site – is it likely someone that would know, or just a hater? ‘cause everyone’s opinion of music is different… if it’s just someone that dislikes the sound, that’s not worth your energy. If they have a problem with the theory, then there’s something to discuss at least.

Maybe you should wait until you get more comments….you know how people are when they comment on things like that, this person may just be saying that to get a reaction from you, or because they actually think is good and they are just being a jealous smart ass (tall poppy syndrome).

Just wait until you have 5 -ish comments…if he/she is the only one with that opinion, let it go.

If a critic said that “it stunk,” I would be suspicious. It’s “It stank.” Maybe his musical ear is as bad as his English. Keep on writing music.

The verb to stink,

NOTE: I now have Elton John’s song stuck in my head. At least it’s a good one!
