Thanks for the comment! :smiley: Atleast some clues. Can you describe it just a bit more? What you do not like for instance.

OK)
I think, that your track needs more space (reverb, delay)
You can try to change your arpeggio instrument)
Try to use firebird muted guitar)

All kidding aside, I think it’s a cool track but… I don’t really hear it as “Motivational” or “Upbeat”, these categories are so saturated, you can’t just call it that and expect to get in.

Secondly, since these categories are so saturated I’m sure they’re clamping down and only letting the highest production value in at this point in time and I don’t think this really gets there in that regard unfortunately. It sounds fairly flat and one dimensional in comparison to a lot of what’s in this genre… I recently tried something similar and got a hard reject, it’s tough!

In my opinion, the arrangement is a little poor, especially after the transitions there is no development, something is missing. Anyway need something else.

Also small advise, when you add something element in the mix, check how it sounds without it and If you hear that the arrangement becomes worse, then this element is needed.

Good luck mate :wink:
