Here's a song called "I Thought We Were Falling in Love" It has pedal steel added from RealBand and lead guitar overdub. I'm working on my harmonies, watching the great Beatles harmony breakdowns available on YouTube.

C G In darkness we walked, surrounded by moonlight
F Em G Drawn together by the sight
Dm Am CG Angels faces
AmG sharing the night

FGC So easy to surrender
Dm F The one that I've been dreaming of
GCF GC and I thought we were falling in love

FGC Your mouth so warm and tender
Dm F I knew I'd never get enough
GCF GC and I thought we were falling in love
Am Once in a lifetime
CFEm Dm and rare occasions
F G two hearts beat in single time
AmDm then magic grows as love unfolds
FG but it won't be yours and mine

FGC DmF solo

CG For hours we talked, our temples unguarded
FEmG shifting footsteps in the sand
Dm Am CG heartbeat races
AmG holding your hand

FGC For me the sky had shattered
Dm F and fell in bits of golden stuff
GCF GC and I thought we were falling in love

FGC The dream was all that mattered
Dm F who knows what you were thinking of
GCF GC but I thought we were falling in love

CG We wandered like children through secret places
FEmG rainbows and stars above
GCF GC and I thought we were falling in love
GCF GC and I thought we were falling in love

Really cool tune!! It has the "Rockwell" signature sound-retro, melodic, and very pleasant to listen to. Really enjoyed!! Take care. Greg

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.
