This mini mood piece is the first "song" I made (not counting a tutorial) after opening Garageband. It probably needs some remixing of volume levels, but for now it is left as-is since I moved on to do other songs.

"SD" stands for "Song Doodle."

is that you on the guitar? This sounds pretty good, I like the melody and the use of synths, needs percussion and perhaps a faster pace. But seeing as its your first piece....

Thanks for the comments everyone! You're making me want to revisit this thing now and do something more with it. I know when I first made it, I was attempting to do something without percussion to see what would come out. Maybe time to make a mix with some beats.

TheDeadHerring: Not me on the guitar. All loops, although there are a couple which I did a lot of cutting and splicing to in order -- some don't resemble the originals at all.

If anyone wants to have a go at this, I'd be happy to put the Garageband file up on my site for download. I'd be interested to hear where other people took the dark sound (I really liked the deep warbly bass sound).

Thanks again!

The ending is a bit hasty, otherwise it got lots of potential...

Not bad at all. Starts off great and sort of fades and loses some of that 'dark atmosphere'. I always find it hard to get the right loops & I find I'm making my own most of the time (even beats at times).

Theres something unique about this song, that i can't put my finger on. The dark atmosphere doesnt really fit, but a pretty good track.

Nice job utilizing the loops, I thought it would last longer and then it stopped, but its a good short piece.

i think the arrangement of the loops is very well-done.

great first foray into GB... some of my fave loops are in this little song doodle.

i just LOVE listening to people's first songs... it shows just how creative some people can be w/out ANY knowledge of software programs/instruments/music/etc... and it's always cool to see the progression of each artist... from their first piece... to their latest... y'know?

peace,
