No problem at all John. Personally I think the strength of the Chandelier is the song itself. That and the fact that it was recorded in a million dollar studio with million dollar arrangers and engineers, with million dollar plugins...

Yeah, you are probably right on all counts about Chandelier.

Slightly off the topic...but now that I have listened to several of your songs over at SongTradr.com would you mind me asking how you like that? I have sold instrumentals at Audio Jungle but the competition there is so fierce that only a few sales straggle in every month! Plus, I'd like to produce some songs with vox too and they wouldn't work well at Audio Jungle.

Do they charge you to submit? Do they require their approval of your submissions?

It is very cheap to submit. $4 buys you loads of credits.

There are two types of opportunities. "Deals" and "music wanted". Deals are for blanket type licenses and libraries. Here is a compilation album that one of my songs appears on. http://www.deezer.com/track/399901362

The payment terms for these varies.

Music wanted are for specific opportunities for specific clients and tend to look more lucrative that deals. They can pay up to $1000 to use your song in a movie or advert etc. the songs submitted to these opps need to be very specific to the brief (otherwise you will probably get a bad name!) and I am sure there is loads of competition for these.

They review each song submitted and then shortlist, then send to the music supervisor for final selection, then license.

So far, my songs have only been licensed for deals but I currently have 2 in final selection for music wanted.

Thanks for the info Joanne. I was wondering how licensing worked. I'll have to look into that site.

On another note, I decided to turn the little instrumental I made yesterday into a full blown song. Here's the link for the Shocase thread it's under.

Great Samuel. Let me know how it goes. Just had a listen to your latest. I think it would be good for licensing.

Since I started it, I guess I get the right to post??

The song above Oh by The way was done with the use of BIAB and I ran across it as I am remastering for an album.

As stated in the original post, BIAB was with me all the way through.

1.) I wrote piano riff.

2.) I use chord wizard to tell me what chords I was playing.

3.) I used those chords to form the backbone of the structure, but embellishing and inverting for the chorus.

4.) I used a BIAB style to give me a start (see OP) then added my own synth parts, and a few extra guitars in places.

I was not going for "modern" I was going for "David Snyder" but I am pretty happy with the results and there is no way I could have pulled this off without Band in a Box.

Pretty clear that is a good job, Samuel. It takes some doing to get

He is something of a Nashville regulars' favorite at The Bluebird.

We've listened to him from the 1990's to the Steel Drivers to his return to the blues. He's an amazing musician and some of his youtube videos have John Jarvis on piano.
