Rule of thumb, comment on at least 10 tracks before posting your own. Have you done this? No? Well, get going, buddy. There are +300 pages of music in the YLC.

- Is your feedback/comments worth reading? Are you giving sound advice (no pun intended)? Are most of your comments one or two word posts along the lines of "safe!" or "digging it"? If yes, then please do yourself and everyone else a huge favour and elaborate on this.


What if I'm a music-making noob looking for feedback but who isn't qualified to offer much more than "safe" etc. on other people's tracks?

Surely you have (or can form) some sort of opinion?

Sure, just not one that's likely to be constructive - I know when I like or dislike a track, but wouldn't be able to offer much in the way of analysis as to why, let alone suggestions for how to improve it. Hence I can't do much better than

"thick, solid, tight"


and suchlike.

Well, do you like the track? Yes? No? What do you like? What don't you like? Did it sound good on your monitors? Did the track take you on a journey? Are you wondering how something was made? Do you simply hate the snare beyond belief?

 

It's pretty easy really.

The YLC is starting to look like a fucking wasteland, guys.
There are so many threads being created all the time and so many of these threads never get any replies. It's wonderful that so many people want to share their creations but it would be even more wonderful if you guys would consider the following before posting:

- Are you not getting any replies? Well, before posting a new thread you should maybe comment on some other people's music. Rule of thumb, comment on at least 10 tracks before posting your own. Have you done this? No? Well, get going, buddy. There are +300 pages of music in the YLC.

- Is your feedback/comments worth reading? Are you giving sound advice (no pun intended)? Are most of your comments one or two word posts along the lines of "safe!" or "digging it"? If yes, then please do yourself and everyone else a huge favour and elaborate on this. It shouldn't be so hard to explain why you like something or why you don't or why you would have done something differently. And be nice about it.

- Don't be a little bitch

- If you can't stand getting criticism then don't post your stuff. Quite simple.

- Is your track worth posting? Are you happy with your track? Fantastic! Let us hear it!



You give some, you get some.

 

Felt this was worth reminding everyone of.
