    well thier's various ways you can create your own mp3's or midis. For me, I used Noteworthy composer and saved it as a midi file. If you have noteworthy composer, just go to

    * "save as"
    * and at the bottom where it says standard NWC file, click on that and go to "type 1 midi file"
    * and now click SAVE! and voila! you've created yourself a midi file, but of course, you must input/enter your chords first or song, then you can save. is this clear?

    the piece sounds too slow to me. I don't mean slow in tempo. but probably in the lack of melody. Notice in many instances (say, from 0:10~0:25), the melody line and the bass are moving at the same duration ( half note?)- which is kind of annoying; it doesn't really bring out the melody.

    I like the part 0:41~0:47, but overall it's a bit too simplistic compare to your other compositions.
    but that doesn't mean I don't encourage simplicity.

    Thanks for the comments! Yeah, it is simple and slow. This was just a little practice though, and i still need more help so i can make this song be its best. If this won't impress me, it won't impress no one...

    I pretty much agree to what Darren said. It feels too empty, ya know? Even though it is supposed to be a slow song, it needs to be developed into a slow song the right way. Simplicity is my friend, but this is too simple and boring X_X Even if there is a melody, it gets the listener bored and impatient, waiting for something to happen, but there won't..

    yah, i know, a total waste of time........

    if there's any pointers to what i should do, to make it less dull, please do!

    In the meantime, i'll just go and play the piano.

    having a midi is nice, but if you can record it live, do it! a midi is more like better to see if it sounds right on a music sheet so you can print it out and share it, but, if you want to get your song fully shown, fully heard, i suggest playing it live and record it. to me, a live recording can let me feel what the pianist is feeling. a midi is written by you, but played by the computer... that's my opinion.
    now that i've said that, the song is hard for me to focus cause i hear the "piano keys" getting banged at, meaning the sound is getting forced out of the instrument. the mood of it sounds great, but, again, needs a story. a kind of song like this needs a story. if it was a jazz piece, that is a whole different...story. anyways, i would suggest to either get a live recording or change the instrument cause there is to me too much reverb...
    aside of all that, it is a good start. you have the idea, just let it the idea grow more, expand the horizon, ya get what i mean? hope to hear more of your compos!

    I'd give it a 4 maybe. It seems like you're throwing chords randomly around. I really can't feel a story. I'm sorry if my comments aren't detailed enough, but I hope they give you a general idea on how you should improve this one, or what you could incorporate into your next song.
