Re-working non-forwarded pieces

Post by smelterbox » Mon Nov 08, 2021 6:28 pm

I'm new here but am wanting to learn. Have been a member for a little over a year.

I'm curious about how often one re-writes a piece of music that was not forwarded. I see that there are often cycles of requests - and for some compositions I don't think they are ever completely "done." I do have a few that I am re-tooling in the hope that another opportunity to submit will be posted. :)

Thanks for the feedback,

I don't think there's any rule of thumb. I'd probably look at the previous critique(s) and see if I think I can and want to address the shortcomings they mentioned. If so, I'd re-write and submit it again when a similar listing comes up.

Persoanally never because I always think I can do better than the last time, so I just write a new track

I would say if you really want that track to succeed then keep rewriting until you get it right. Something to consider might be even switching genres to make it work.

I always re-work my pieces to make them better. Some of the re-worked pieces have subsequently been forwarded, too!

Anyway you end up with a marketable piece of music is good, whether it's re-working an old one or starting from scratch. Anything and everything works at different times. No right answer. :D
