I would like some tips and feedback on my song cover. Tips and feedback are much appreciated. Thank you

Well, I definitely wouldn’t call it a cover. It’s a remix.

Apart from Copyright breeches, in all honesty, it’s not a million miles from the original, because it is built around the original recording. Ok some EQ, a few stock effects and a too loud guitar… As a remix it needs more creative ideas and more distance between this version and the original, including some elements that really help to set it apart.


I would guess you might hope for more complimentary comments. In saying that, if you post something that is mainly someone else’s work, it gets difficult to know if people comment on, or like your work, or the original song… which makes improving very much harder.


I definitely don’t say the above to be cruel or offensive. That’s not the point in critique. More than anything critique is about progressing and learning. It’s about helping. That means looking at what works and what doesn’t. It means being honest with ourselves and with each other.


If people only like a remix because of the original artist, the original song, the original performance… then what did you bring to the party?


What new elements do you feel you brought to the remix?


Otherwise I would ask:


What are your goals for your music?


How do you plan to move from where you are just now towards achieving your goals?


Understanding the answers to these questions helps target more appropriate advice. It also help with forming an expectation. 


I really hope this helps.
