I (Alan) started on several years ago on a different music creation program but haven't yet finished. I added BIAB track "Midi Strings - 49" to round out the string section. But I think I could use a few "jingle bells" (not the song, rather the bells themselves) here and there in the song. And, obviously, I need to decide what to do with the ending ... I don't like the fade. Anyway, here's where it's at right now.

It's more a backing track to a film scene or bumper music for radio rather than a stand-alone piece. No lyric - it's an instrumental.

Hi Alan and Di,

There's a lot of creativity on show in this backing track. It certainly sounds like a strong foundation for song building!

Merry Christmas to you both!
Noel

Thank you Noel. And that's exactly what it's meant to be - a backing track. It still needs quite a bit of work,, but getting there! Happy New Year.
