What I Like About It

  1. This is an instrument I haven’t used before. It’s different.
  2. The harmony (Em7, DM7, Cm7b5, B7) is simple, but effective.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. There is a whole bunch of phase distortion that is quite evident when the volume is up.
  2. There are long sections without any lows at all. This makes the piece feel untethered during those sections.
  3. Some chord changes are abrupt and unexpected and other chords are held too long.
  4. I should have spent more time in the mix down and adding an effects processor or two. I think Microphaser and a touch of Chorus would have been effective here.

Note: These are rough drafts. Constructive criticism is welcomed, of course.
