Nice tune!

Hmmm... overall this is a pretty pleasant track. I don't really have any complaints. The melodies are rather charming. And the repetition seems appropriate in this song, and you seem to mix stuff up just enough.

But the only suggestions I could think of is to have a thicker louder bass drum, and also... Add in some rapid arp chords throughout your song to play rhythmically. Not like dominating your song, but sprinkle it in here and there to add some harmonic flare. (oooh, that was poetic, wasn't it?)  big_smile You could also have just one of your plain interludes contain a rapid arpeggio solo without having arps anywhere else in your song. It would give your listeners a delightful surprise towards the end, and something for them to anticipate while listening to your tune again in the future.

If your comfortable with stereo, then try experimenting a little with that for some of the melodies and arps to hard pan on different channels every once in awhile. But not too much.

You wanted constructive criticism, and that's all I could really think of to improve your track. It's a nice tune just as it is, though, so your call. Have a great day!
