Yes, I did do a lot of editing, most of it being various forms of equalization just so I could get the strings to be individually identifiable instead of everything sounding like one big muddled chord, lol. I did add some reverb too for atmosphere.
As for it not taking off, the song was actually made on a whim. I just took what I had in my head at the time and made it into as much of a reality as I could. I usually have a whole bunch of ideas whirling around at any given time, so it's hard to stay focused on just one. Not to mention, I don't have the skill with instruments to fully express all of them. Sometimes I get ideas where I have other instruments filling out certain voids in the sound, and obviously I can't do all instruments at one time, much less find the money to buy the actual instruments...
Sorry for going off on a little rant there, but sometimes it gets frustrating not being able to get something out you have in your head. In any case, you are right about the song being very spontaneous, since it was. :P I've also been fixated on a few of the riffs in this song, which probably led to not being able to branch out into something else as easily.
Thanks for the review!
