How can I improve these songs?

Recommended Posts

Your arrangements aren't bad. You can only improve musically with practice, practice, practice.

I suppose they're not terrible like I make them out to be. And I know that the way to get better is practice, but what I was asking when I made this thread is if anyone knew a good place to look for stuff like learning music theory, because I know nothing about it, and was wondering if anyone knew a good site or book for it.

Try talking Maes into singing lead vocals in his patented smooth Jamaican accent.

Not only that, but they have to be recorded through this here Maes-approved vintage recorder for giving them a warm, tube sound.

Not being sarcastic, actually. You're progressing well, though what I've noticed the most troublesome is that there are occasionally instruments playing off-key. I'm not really sure what to say about improving it if you don't yet have an ear for it, 'cept keep messing with things and it'll eventually dawn on you. :P

For the record, the dissonance in the first half of Sewer Rats with the loud, droning bass actually works very well, I think. It's just the latter portion (when the bass drops out and the piano-y thing comes in) that has some out-of-key issues.

Just try to do a lot of covers of music you like, and you'll pick up techniques that way. It's how I learned to compose music.

If you want some practical tips right off the bat, some more syncopated notes wouldn't hurt.
