This is sort of the synthesis of several different threads over more than one year. More than once the subject of commenting has come up and the fact that while many of us want constructive comments, a lot of us don't want to be critical in our comments.. myself included. I find that I'm always worried about being too critical when I don't know what a person's actual experience level is. @nutation has a great conversation about this going on in songwriting.
A couple of solutions have been suggested, including having special tags (that might have been in a nutation thread too). So here's my suggested solution. One, lets start up some tags. You can go back and tag old songs as well. If you have a song and you would like honest constructive criticism on it, then tag it #constructivecriticism If you have a song and you think it needs some work, and you want some help/suggestions about what to do, tag it #needshelp
Also, I remember that last year @Powerstars started this great thread where you would post a link to a song you wanted comments on, and you'd comment on the previous one. I say lets start that up again, but lets add that you can be specific about what sorts of feedback you are looking for.
I'll start. I'm posting this one because I'm really proud of it, and I would like people to listen, but I'm thick skinned. If you have a suggestion, you can give it to me. I may or may not take you up on it, but I'll definitely appreciate your interest in helping.
