Hi Lawrence.
Glad to hear your music again.
It is intelligent and beautifully crafted.
Always most enjoyable. Cheers.
Big thanks to everyone who ever played a song of mine.
Just got to 10,000 total plays on Soundcloud.

Dear "gruverider"...

This song, "Lullaby in D", has a feel that turns 'round and 'round like a procession of sunrises and sunsets through different seasons of the year, while the music in a corresponding manner sounds melancholy, wistful, poignant, and affirmative, even, with each turn. Your singing voice amplifies the impact of the music.

It's beautifully emotional listening experience, sir.

When you drop by we always know that we are in for a treat -- you never disappoint with what we've always considered one of the top forum voices.

"Heartfelt" has already been mentioned multiple times and this song, as do all of yours, has it in spades.

As was said above "It is intelligent and beautifully crafted!"

We much enjoyed it (great addition to the playlist) and, hey, STICK AROUND!!

Never grow's a trap.

I'll ride Kenny's coattails on this - he often says what I was thinking.

Good to see you back around, Lawrence. Love hearing that voice...

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.
