You already made a thread about your terrible song.

OP, you come across as a bit of an attention *****. Fake humility in the title doesn't disguise the fact that you are seeking kudos and accolades as opposed to actual criticism. The "I'm only such and such age" is always a dead give away.

The song in question isn't appealing to my ears, but not terrible either.

No... Not this guy again...

You need to start from somewhere. If your attitude is "I'm never going to learn how to write songs", you'll never going to learn how to write them. But I would advise you to use real instruments when you record the songs. It doesn't sound really good.

But every songwriter has to write their first song and you can't expect it to be the best song in the world. You should never give up if you want to be a songwriter, just write a new song. And songwriting is not about talent. Nothing is. Everybody can do everything if they want to do it. Some people can do it easier, yes, but that doesn't mean you can't do it after practicing. And really nobody can write a perfect song as their first song. You can't do anything without practicing. Nobody was perfect when they were born.

You are only 15 so you have plenty of time to write some good songs.

But what you really need to do is to fix your attitude.

Mozart was composing symphonies since 9 years old. So no, you aren't cut out to be a songwriter.

you guys are a bunch of haters!

*EDIT* Ok, some parts sound like the intro to a B horror movie, and some parts sound like the intro to a gameboy pocket game or something.

To be honest it felt like the was no main point to your song, or at least you gave away the point within the first few seconds. It was 4 minutes of the same thing :P

I wrote 30 symphonies when I was 3 years old, I beat steve vai in a guitar duel when I was 11 and I just won an oscar for a film I scored.

Btw I'm only 15 guize.

You haven't seen this guys' other threads? He posted six threads about this song (and talked about killing himself). TS has some real problems. Also he posted a thread about his singing skills...

BTW. My 1000th post!!!

I can't really say anything without knowing where you're trying to go. This is the wrong forum for it anyway, go to the Original Recordings forum.
