To understand FM, I think of each OP as an OSC that can also be a LFO.

Pretty nice track :) There seems to be a mistake with the highest piano note as it's playing at volume 57. DM skips the volume input on the same row as an OFF command.

Personally I would put the piano in the middle and play with panning on channel 1 instead, and pair the second PSG channel with the high pitched PSG lead.
Perhaps you could also make a decent piano sounding chord using only 1 channel (with ch3 special mode maybe?); that way you could beef up the funky FM lead for its high pitched part.

I made a quick edit showing the first suggestion, hope you don't mind.

Thanks for the feedback. Good idea with panning the steel drumish sound.

I also mixed it a bit better, I'll be rerecording the ROM, it'll be up in no time (it'll be the same soundcloud URL too)
