Feedback Time!

Its Time!

I completed an arrangement of a piece by Handel with a preferable custom audio (because the other one is too echo-ish and too "mush" in sound), the piece I arranged is a movement from Royal Fireworks named "La Rejouissance". The piece is for young string players. Please give me positive feedback, all is welcomed!

A review of page rules.

This page was created for guitar players and any music related for the guitar. Style and genre is not important as long as the music posted is guitar related. However, scores that do include the guitar MUST actually be playable on the guitar or the score will be removed. No offense is intended toward anyone who uses the guitar for composition and tonal purposes only BUT the Everything Guitar page is intended for Guitarist and Guitar Composers who are interested in researching ,sharing, and discovering guitar oriented music that is actually playable on the guitar itself.  If these guidelines are not met the piece will be removed. These rules do NOT apply concerning seemingly impossible virtuoso techniques with proper practice and instruction to accomplish.  These rules apply to guitar pieces or guitar parts within scores that include chord structures legitimately impossible to execute on the instrument. If anyone feels as though their piece has been wrongfully removed due to these guidelines you may resubmit the piece with the fingering necessary to accomplish such techniques.  Using notes within the range of the guitar doesn't make the combinations of those notes or chords playable. Please do not take these rules as a message to not compose for the guitar if you are not a guitarist. DO take this message as an invitation to seek council How to properly notate passages for the guitar if you are not a guitar player.  Thanks again to all the members who support this group.

Reached composers block

So, you know how I have been working on the 50 follower special composition right? Well, I am 2/3 of the way through it and even include a short bit of canon in the composition. But after this canonic moment, I can't seem to make further progress. I know that I want to go back to G major by means of a plagal cadence(which would require me to substitute C major for C#°) and that I want to end the piece with a plagal cadence.

I have been having this composers block for about a week now. I usually embrace it and just move on to composing something else, but this is a 50 follower special composition that I have been working on.

Need help hitting notes consistently.

So, I can hit a wide range of notes with fairly good tone, but my issue is pitch. I tend to mess up which note I hit. For example, in 4th position playing a D instead of a G. Or playing a high Bb in first instead of an F. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm playing notes too high [usually can tell if it's too low unless it's an F, E or Eb] and end up practicing the wrong notes. I had this issue more this past year because I was first chair in our less-than-spectacular band [we're separated into two bands in my school] and I didn't really have someone to learn off of. I've been trying scales and everything but nothing seems to be working well. This is kind of a big issue for me because I'm basically guaranteed a spot in our better band next year and I want to be on top of my game this time instead of embarrassing myself or relying on someone else. Not to mention I'm joining jazz band...
