1. IS YOUR SONG DISTORTED ?
"Clipping is a form of distortion where the amplitude of the waveform
is attempting to be so large it runs out of room and pushes against
the extreme edges of available sampling space (referred to in digital audio terms as '0dB').
Because it has nowhere to go the waveform is flattened out at the peak of the
amplitude in a hard line until the amplitude lowers again and resumes its normal curve.
(...) Both the hard line and the fact that there is a tight little corner bent into the
shape of the waveform contribute to audible distortion."
ELI5 version: Your instruments are too loud and it makes your song sound doo-doo"
If you, for some reason, can't notice from the audio, that your song is distorted,
I would suggest opening the mixer and looking at the master channel.
If it's flashing red, your song is probably distorted. Keep the color green or yellow.

2. THE CONSTRUCTION OF YOUR SONG
In my humble opinion, for a new music producer it's best to build your song around a chord structure.
A basic chord progression that has 4 or even as little as 2 chords repeating thorughout the song would
be very helpful for the producer. This is a solid foundation for the song, because it forces
you to follow some rules, and rules are super helpful when you don't know what you are doing.
A chord structure will force you to have the rest of your instrumentation follow the chords
creating a cohesive harmony. Also a chord structure is just a very simple-to-create element
that will add repetition for your song, and make the song easier to follow.
Here's a link to a video exploring this idea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=adfJWT8IPvo
2.5. THE STRUCTURE OF YOUR SONG
"You might think that you're being innovative or something and that you want to break boundaries,
but in reality even music has some rules..."
My last advice would be this:
listen to some of your favorite artists and analyze how their songs are constructed.
This song doesn't really resemble any kind of music I've heard of before.
It's a bit of a mess If I'm going to be 100% honest. Also search for some of the top rated projects
on LSP and see how they are done.
