Hard rejected track - Need feedback please

Hi guys,

another item of mine got rejected. Any suggestions what might be wrong? I might be missing something, but I quite don’t agree this item would not have enough commerial quality to be sold on AJ. I don’t know, what do you think?

I would kindly appreciate any feedback!



You’ve got some great chops. And a nice swing main melody that repeats itself for commercial value, which is also great. The only thing that bothers me is the guitar tone, too loud, bright and compressed for my taste, stabs me right in the head like an icepick. :smiley:

It should’ve been a soft reject at most, I agree.

It must the lead guitar sound.
As mentioned by Tonecrate, it’s too harsh
And another thing : Maybe you can cut the track at 2:00 minutes. It’s a little bit long in my opinion

Thank you very much! I think you are right. The lead guitar si too loud. I should be more careful next time with mixing. But yeah, that would be reason to soft reject rather than hard reject.

Possibly I might change the mix, title and some details and resubmit it. I have never done it before, but this is the first time really don’t agree with hard rejection.

Thanks again! You have cool songs in your portfolio. I wish you have a lot of sales! :slight_smile:
