Looking for feedback on two interesting pieces I wrote

Hey guys! I’m looking for feedback on two pieces I wrote, both of which are very modern, unique, and my best pieces in my opinion. The two pieces are very different: one of them is a long piece for concert wind ensemble, and the other is a short lament written for just three strings. Anyways, I’d really appreciate any comments on these, and the links to them below. If you like what you hear, feel free to listen to or comment on my other music, as well:

Thank you! Have a great day!

Composing

When you guys make music, do you follow any rules? Or does it just flow naturally? I'm completely stuck with what to do. I don't think I know the first thing about music. If someone could educate me, I'd appreciate it a lot. Thanks.

Here's the first 3 bars, you write some more! - Challenge

READ ALL OF THIS IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE!
Not official discussion thread.
Anyone ever done one of those three word story things where one person gives 3 words, then the next dude gives 3 words and so on?
I thought I'd try that with music! So I've written the first three bars. You download the latest version from here: https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/4503586 , Add your original three bars to it, post the whole thing on your account, then give the link to it in the discussion ( https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/4503586 ). Then I will update the score here to the latest version, but because I can't be on musescore 24/7, it's unlikely that what's here is the latest version. So when you add your bit, make sure you check the official discussion version before you start writing. so...
Here's my start:
https://musescore.com/johnwd/this-might-be-interesting

RULES:
1. If you want to compete then do! The more people the better!
2. When you add bars, get the latest version off the official discussion.
3. FEEL FREE TO ADD INSTRUMENTS (AS MANY AS YOU WANT), CHANGE TIME SIG, CHANGE TEMPO, CHANGE STYLE, ETC. just only do it to your own three bars.
4. Try and make it flow from what's come before.
5. Put your name/username above your three bars.
6. when you upload, don't just upload your new bars, but the whole thing up to that!!!!!!!
7. POST THE LINK IN THE OFFICIAL DISCUSSION! NOT THIS ONE - POST IT HERE: https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/4503586

Think that's all - Have fun!

New song need help

Okay. SO, I'm writing a new song. I'm mostly writing in parts for Piano, Acoustic Guitar, and the double bass/contrabass/upright bass, but I'm open to suggestions. I don't know what all I'm going to do, but I DO know that I'm starting with the repeated part of Nothing Else Matters by Metallica and I know I'm going to have Angel by Theory of a Deadman in there. I'm going to have bits and pieces of other songs too, but I need help writing a transition from Nothing Else Matters to Angel. Any ideas? I mostly need melodical help

Of Etiquette

So after being on Musescore for 18 weeks, 3 days, I’ve noticed a couple things that the average user should apply, to make everyone’s time on Musescore enjoyable and productive.
First of all, the system is rigged for “pro users.” In a random selection of 27 pros, the average number of followers was 220, when a similar sample of well-known non-pro-users turned up none with even 200 followers, 10% below the AVERAGE of the “pros.” Now, a case can be made that non-pro-users are not as committed composers, therefore not being as good. However, a composer’s piece seems to be legitimized if that little pro icon is down by the user’s name. Musescore users, especially pros, should not be prejudiced by not looking at a certain composer’s material if that user is not a pro.
So here’s my solution to this problem: be courteous. That’s all. There should be some etiquette that gets applied. Here is my list for how EVERY user should treat every other Musescore user:
I – if a user follows you, check out their music. You may be surprised with what you hear.
II – if a user favorites a work of yours, check out their music. If they like your music, it shows that you have similar tastes.
III – if a user comments on a piece of yours, check out their music. If they took the time to listen to a piece of yours, they deserve your respect for being a good audience.
Now, this list is not comprehensive. Just be courteous, and do what you would want others to do to you. The golden rule is key here.
I hope that those who read this pay attention to it, and take it to heart. There are so many great non-pro-users who don’t get the recognition they deserve, simply because they are not a pro user.

Thanks for reading this rant. :)

War of the Planets movement 2

Hello musescore community! If you have a couple of minutes, please check out my piece titled War of the Planets movement 2. I was inspired by Mahler's Adagietto and I felt the need to compose something of my own. Commenting and critiquing is encouraged!

Also, if anyone can turn this piece into an mp3 file with a realistic soundfont (or something better than the standard musescore soundfont), I would appreciate that very much! I hope you all enjoy.
