Dude, the honest truth with AJ is that sometimes good stuff gets rejected plain and simple. They’ve got a bazillion guys just like you and me peppering them with stuff and I’ve had some really frustrating rejects in the past. I’ve uploaded them other places and gone on to sell em there, so while I’d love to have them in my portfolio here, it’s just not worth getting bent out of shape over.
Secondly, this has been one of the most helpful places online for me to find some actual advice and feedback over the past few years and it’s definitely way less toxic than almost any other forum I visit, I think everyone here aims to keep it that way.
You’ll get nowhere with lines like “Tired of being good at something and getting nothing for it”, simple fact is you just ain’t that good, you’re just ok, like me, but there are dudes on here who can walk all over you in terms of production value and skill. Sit down, be humble.
Producing stock music is way different than producing “real music” if you wanna call it that, it’s an art form in itself. If you’re here strictly to cash out on skills you think you already have you might want to re-evaluate things.
For me this mix sounds just fine to get accepted, but it didn’t so what I think doesn’t mean anything. Personally I think the guitar playing is maybe a little sloppy, and everything could be balanced a little better but overall I think if you keep at it you’ll get some acceptances and then you can make 10’s of dollars too!
