Left this comment on your facebook page, but since not everybody has facebook I'll share it here as well:

Hi Friedemann, watched the whole video and love all your tips and tricks, shared in a very friendly, respectful and helpful manner! Great you loved my Xmas track, and great tips about sleigh bells, the high register and the rhythm/groove suggestions. I'll see if I can improve it a bit using your comments. Thanks so much! MM
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

i clicked on this to watch it for a while, and turned out to watch the entire 40 minutes
i thought your advise on MartiMedia's track was very spot on.....and i know Marti can take feedback, but if he has a weak spot.....which he doesn't..... ;D ;D ;D, but suppose he would have...  ;D ;D ;Dit is his high end and consistency in his high end (mixingwise)

and i liked all the advise but it just made me think about my own arrangments and mixing, how much i do wrong...i just clutter and stack tracks up...
and make the whole track flat

i mean loads of things you said i want try to consider in the future, i will probably be a slow learner, but it does make sense

and i am enjoying reading your book now  ;D ;D ;D ;D
that is not to advertise it (we have a policy against that on this forum, i think  :P ::) ??? ???

....but once again, i do take karma points  ;D ;D ;D ;D)

but your tips make very good sense, your reasoning in the book is convincing and the explanation good, in my opinion

Hi DB, you're definately right, though Friedemann meant something else (he suggested adding some high register instruments like high notes on the violin or piccolo).. I know you interpreted that had to do something with the mix. ;-) But yes, I have a serious hearing damage in the high-end, so if anything in the high end of my mixes seems too loud, too soft or inconsistent I'd be so grateful for any help so then please always let me know ;-)
And for the record: yes you love stacking up sounds, but that's also a part of your musical identity, so please don't loose all of it ;-)
MM

Hi Friedemann,

Thanks for featuring my song in your latest Feedback Friday session. I think that you brought up some very relevant points which are very valid for this song and which I will keep in mind in future creations. I am really glad that you liked the song and see potential in it :)

Thanks for sharing your vision. Yes, I have listened to Lana del Rey?s songs before and think that Videogames is a very fitting reference song, I do imagine it that way - thanks for mentioning it :)

It was also very interesting to hear someone else sing my song! :D and to explore the power of slight variations in melody, rhythm and method of singing to achieve a more effective state of lyrical story telling and a stronger chorus. I will try it out that way? :) ...And thank you for the rest of your suggestions ? I will take the gist ;)

Hello, My name is crystalsuzy, and I am a feedback addict, in particular, to Friedemann's 'feedback Friday"!  :o I've posted 3 songs now, and I can't stop myself  :o

His feedback is right on, very helpful and entertaining to listen to ;D So post your songs, or not, but have a listen to all the advice he gives, for all the songs posted :)

You won't be disappointed and it can't help, but help your own song writing efforts  :) :) KARMA for me  :) :)

@ Friedemann :) This might be a bit of a nightmare for you, but is there anyway you could play the parts of the song (during the feedback), that you're suggesting

changes to, so that it would help people to understand exactly what you're getting at  ???  ::)  :)

@crystalsuzy: That's a great (though time-consuming) idea and I agree that it would make the show 100x better. I'm updating the entire Feedback Friday feature at the moment, and I'll definitely see if I can implement it for the new year when FF 2.0 comes out! But shhh, you didn't hear that from me ;)

(MASSIVE thanks for the feedback, I REALLY appreciate it - at the moment I just want to make this feature as amazing as it can be, and this helps!)

I'll be talking more about the new FF on the show tomorrow by the way, so see you there! ;)

meanwhile @Friedemann keeps going strong....with his youtube programs and blogs.... been a while since Friedemann posted on ths forum (yoehoe.. @Friedemann  ;D ;D ;D  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::) , but he is now also analysing and explaining chord progressions and melodies of well known bands... much of it is beyond me, be it looks good and his videos are great  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

For instance, here is an episode from Friedemann's Holistic Songwriting channel about Radiohead, and the song creep....i know many of us like that song.....


oh and  ;D ;D ;D ;D as a bonus...somwhere out here on the forum there is an acapella version of Creep from @Mar T.  :o :o :o :o :o :o if you find it...watch out....it ispretty stunning... 8) 8)

This is a person whose brains need to be devotedly picked by anyone wanting to know what works and what doesn't in songwriting and recording. Keep your eyes wide for when he makes his brains available for picking.

I've listened to six of his critiques and I've learned so much I'm gonna need a dump truck to haul it all away. I'm going to be listening to everything I can find.

I thank you @Dutchbeat from the very depths of my heart for turning me on to @Friedemann
I'm a lyricist seeking music writers to work with.
