Thanks. I've heard of Songtradr and will look it over. My biggest problem is likely motivation and ambition at this point in my life and the high quality instrumentation that can so easily be achieved with BIAB just accentuates those qualities.

I think you have plenty of ammo, there, Charlie. But now, we are getting into the field of marketing, a specialty of its own. I pretty well assure that if "My Sad Story" was performed tomorrow at the Oprey, the phones would be lit up Mon. AM. Remember the theme of "Lucille" ? Another one, "Third Rate Romance," has a message of somehow feeling used. Those are two producers who threaded that needle and went on to reap the benefits.
I spent many years in sales, but marketing has never been my strong point. Still, I think I'm OK in poiinting you towards tweaking the theme and trying again. I mean, really, you've got the hard part done, the music track.

I always try to view any rejection as a learning experience and an opportunity to do better the next time. Never give up.

Hi Janet, thanks for commenting and the encouragement. I'm not really lamenting the rejection so much as the particular rejection this time may be due to my lax attention to quality control....

My future plans are to pay a bit more attention to detail. You are absolutely correct, this rejection is an opportunity to be more serious and do better the next time....

My post was me trying to encourage others to do the same - to do as I suggest rather than emulate my past practices.
