Hi, it sounds like a regular license would be enough.
It’s only if you intend to sell the end product, like an iPhone/Android game, that you would need an extended license.
My guess is that roughly 99.99% of the authors here do it themselves, but it would be interesting to find out if anyone lets someone else do it.
Very nice track, but you spelled “Dubstep” wrong.
If you have Gmail – list “All mail” or it will be hidden.
Well, it instantly makes you think of the original, that’s for sure, as the phrasing (and song form) is the same.
I don’t think you would get in trouble here though, since the melody is different. Personally though, I would probably change the phrasing of the melody to avoid being so obviously inspired by the original. And maybe change one of the sections to not reflect the original exactly in terms of structure.
It can never hurt to have more versions, but in my experience, it’s more important to include a “no drums” version or another alternate mix, rather than just cutting it down to 30/60 seconds.
Editors can easily edit the timing themselves, and they might not want to use the exact parts you used in your edit anyway.
Of course, if you feel like you have the time, make 5 versions of every track.
It’s so nice to listen to this guy – if only all tutorials could be like this!
