What I mean by "losing it" is the point where most people can't recognize the original song. A good example of not losing it is Art Tatum and most the remixes on OCRemix (a great video game remixing...

Varg might be a deranged psychopath but he's a master at Atmospheric/Ambient Black Metal. It's dark, raw, slightly-depressing, and atmospheric as can be. Listen to Burzum for inspiration and...

I've actually asked about this a couple years ago. It's suggested that you emphasize the offbeats (2 and 4) with your instruments (kinda like a reggae rhythm). There's certain reoccurring rhythms and...

RickHolly74, not straying too far and suggesting the melody is the problem I was asking about in the first place. I'm researching this one myself (along with writing music for JRPGs).

I didn't know Asami (Legend of Korra) could play guitar so well (Aleks Sever looks almost just like her). In all seriousness, good find and the guitar playing was great (tone was sweet too).

Maybe I'll post a bonus version of my next piece with only piano, bass, and quiet strings. So how would you suggest I make the fake string pattern more harmonic, dark, clear, and sensible.
