Wow, does that mean that BJ has now become a dating site? :P

Hi John, thanks for the time you took writing the review of my song best friend. You are right in your critique I have never studied music let alone song structure. Do you have any good literature references you can suggest on composition theory and or song structure? I am just having a listen to some of your tunes now. Nice mellow tunes and clear engineering. All the best Pewana
6 Steps to Songwriting Success by Jason Blume is really helpful. I highly recommend reading his chapter on identifying song structures and then listening to your favorite Billboard top 100 list artists. You can go to grooveshark.com to listen to almost any song you want. I analyzed over a hundred songs probably. Good exercise. Good luck!
Pewana: Diamonds Forever! Too Cool! Stone me! - N
Not quite cashing in on the lucrative Justin Bieber Market.
Pewana, Love Think I Messed Up! Weird and Wizardly! Wonder why I am so drawn to my Auckland mates? Are we on the same Spiritual Parallel? You would have made a great Demento, but there is still time to join us.......
Oh so you are the one who played it!!. Lol. Thanks for the kind comments Nick. I had a listen to your angels song and Its awesome. Your muso's are a talented bunch by the sound of your tracks so I really appreciate the compliments. Cheers Pewana
Pewana, I personally think I suck, but that's why I keep trying to make something beautiful so I can die in peace.
Let me know if you want to collaborate as I could always use a little help from my Friends. - N
Would love to bro - how do we start?
First, you have to accept my Friend Invite (painful but true). Then, we can communicate by BJ email, as well as keep up with each other's antics. Then we exchange sound files over the web via our real email using free services (I hate spending money). Then we rule the world, but it all starts by making pals. - N
I love ruling the world!! I hate spending money. But what friend invite? I clicked on follow you any how. Let me know what you need pal P
Thank you for taking the time to review From this point Forward...You're partially correct. The sounds are a bit dated on this song. However, I'm trying to fuse and blend textures from old and new. I was rather young at using my programs at this point. And thank you so much for the encouragement. Best wishes to you.
Add a comment...
Thanks for the review of "The Test". I agree with the synth comment. I wish I could play guitar. Perhaps I should learn, LOL. Thanks again!!
Thanks for the review Pewana, it's appreciated.
No problem Hope there is somethinguseful in there for you.
thanx for the review of That Strategy--you are right, it is definitely classic rock, and you're right again it REALLY needs remixing, actually re-recorded altother--it was one of the first tunes i wrote and it was produced by one of those "houses"...thanks again for your words.
all good Warren
Some very talented people in the licensing success section. I havent managed to listen to them all yet. Great range of music to listen to.
More and more, I gotta agree, with those who say the review process needs some revisions. I would put it to the Broad jam administrators, that it should be broken into tiers. MoB and PMoB classifications of members should not be subjected to the non-paying member's reviews. In almost every instance of a hack review, me or one of my connection is subjected to the flippant, ignorant, or angry reviewer, who, 99 times out 100 is a non-paying member of BJam. Those of us who pay serious money here, and take this place seriously should not have to be subjected to hacks who pay nothing yet have equal say in the review process. I am Cc-ing this post directly to Mr. Elkins. But please my friends, my connections, tell me if you agree.
I'm with you, Benjamin. Bjam did a survey on the review process a month or two ago and I was one of the participants. I'm pretty sure one of my suggestions was some sort of qualification process like you mentioned for reviewers. I can see why the site would want to encourage the public to tune in, listen, purchase songs, etc., but allowing random reviews seems a little too much. Of course, the situation whereby our only reviewers are other musicians/songwriters doesn't seem right either.
I would love any review that was hyper critical and actually gave me some new bristling insight, some method, technique, or mastering tips that i was not already aware of. I am sick of pseudo-musicians giving me the pop-culture addled aesthetic judgments with no technical insights, no audio insights, no composition insights, no theory insights, no instrumentation insights.
they share just their blanket ignorant opinion based solely in their understanding, however feeble, of aesthetics. And when they give low marks...because they generally do (they give low marks to anyone who's composition in review is aesthetically superior to their own works). It is lame......a testament to lameness and an unjust consequence of mixing those who seek to be excellent with those who want to pretend to seem like artists. And it is a fact that there are more hacks who are non-paying members with pipe dreams, than hacks who pay.
Those who want to pay, and want to get their money's worth, are serious about improving themselves. Hence they do. Those who pay nothing are serious about nothing and treat all they encounter with like seriousness.
Well, you bring up an excellent point for fellow pros/semi-pros and one that I always try to put forth in my own reviews: give creative and technical advice (that's based on understanding of the genre and successful approaches).
I agree with 98% of the above. If I understand the process correctly the non-paying or lower priced memberships have to review ten songs to get one of theirs reviewed. I think some of them just blow through as many reviews as possible coming back to the computer every three minutes to mark numbers. I've had many reviews from this group (the 25 pt format) in which they've gone straight down the line and marked all 1/5 or 3/5 for everything and about 5 words total comment split between positive and negative. These other format membership levels probably average about 15 points below the other rated reviews. So basically, you get five good (in terms of helpful with realistic scores) reviews, climb to the top of a Top Ten chart, and then one guy who is eating a tuna sandwich and watching Wheel of Fortune sends you back 100 positions.
Hey Guys,...Me too !....in fact I've taken a little break from having any of my stuff open for review....'cause a lot of the "nubies" and or Hacks as you call 'em Benjamin flexing their power in the review process ...but I gotta say, it's a bit of a mission impossible for Roy and the Team to get everything sorted so that we're all happy....lol...just saying Broadjam does great things for us....so we just gotta play it the way we see it...'till it all gets sorted out....or not....lol.
Personally ...Bjam has done so much for me...I now have a completely new studio....Totally replaced everything in my studio with prizes I've been fortunate to win here on Broadjam Comp's ....so I tend to put up with things I would like to see change.....realizing that Bjam can only do it's best with the technology they can afford and what's possible to achieve with the servers they use...I'm sure they must be subsidizing some areas in the Bjam machine ..... Hey Benjamin...if ya need mastering tips...I'm sure Nathaniel has plenty....LOL....sorry...lol...coul
dn't resist.......my wish for the future in Broadjam....would be great to have different departments like....Really Playing Dept....and...really using samples Dept.....and...WTF is This Dept...and any other department anyone wants to add. ....but like I said...Thanks Broadjam !
I will always be honest and constructive in my reviews. Everyone here should do that too. I look at this site as an extension of ASCAP and want my peers to evaluate my work honestly. If someone truly doesn't like something of mine, just tell me. But I would not like to see reviews like one would see on You Tube by total morons. I did a review today of a song that I thought was good, but it really hurt to have to tell them that it would need more work to be worthy. I appreciate your thoughts and support your ideas here.
Hi everyone, great stuff here.
I agree that Broad Jam does a great job. But the aim of my thread was to distinguish between paying and non-paying members. ANd highlight the good that the paying members do in contrast with the bad that the non-paying members can cause. And with a few minor policy and site changes it could be made better (for those of us who pay).
I see that everyone who so far posted here is a PMoB. And therefore more thoughtful and concerned about the process because we have bought a stake in Broad Jam. We actually care about the success of each other. Because lets face the facts, if we are more successful with licensing then more and more providers will come knocking at Broad Jam's door.
That show of trust by us ought to equivocate to a separation of us from.....them. For the good of professionalism and profit, for both we, the creators of substance her, and for Broad Jam, the facilitator of our products to several different markets.
Nice one Benjamin !...I take your point about the thread you intended....I ranted a bit...lol.....I'm with you ....I think maybe more could be done to separate the facilities of the paying and non-paying members.
Man you guys are lucky. I havent had a review since this time last year. im so hard up for a review i would love the non paying members to give me a great review. Although I am hearing you I have had one review where the guy actually gave me some constructive advice and I only just get what he was talking about now (2 years later).
you guys are harsh man. give the new guys a break. I was new once and a free (loader) member.
thanks for the great review of Many Have tried Nashville Joe. You have great tones in your voice. I like your no guts no glory song.
thank you-pewana-keep up the great work-joe.
Listened to Missing You, your vocals are soft and gentle, with a lovely natural tone. Your words are touching, from someone who has lost her father I found them very moving. A lovely song Pewana. Melsi
Thanks for the kind comments Melsi. I call em like I hear em. That was my 12 year old Neice that you listened to. I think she is pretty good - but I know Im biased. Thank you Regards Pewana
Hi Pewana, thank you so much for your lovely review and comment on No More Chances, I really appreciate you taking the time to listen and for your valuable input. Wishing you well, Melsi
I'm writing to thank you for your review of my Classical piece, "The Art of Darkness," and to thank you for your kind comments. I'm glad you enjoyed the piece and, to me, that's all that matters.
Thanks again and good luck to you in your future musical endeavors. Sonic Pysops
No probs - I just call it like I hear it.
