Mike,

A very pretty melody. The fiddle coming in took me by surprise... and then carried me away; its a lovely RT - did you add effects to the original?
Fine work.

Robert

Thank you all for listening. I'm trying here something different in BIB although I have done some New Age and Ambient music before but not with this software so I cannot post them here. So far I feel pretty comfortable wit it.
Robert, the only effect applied to the violin is a little reverb to give it some spatial sound to it.
Torrey, something I cannot do is lyrics, so I envy you all for it. However if somebody wants to take a wack at it...I'm open.
Thanks again.

Mike B.

Beautiful melody and chords. Good spacious mix. The strings and fiddle sound very nice. Has some Vivaldi mood.

Great work on this one smile It sounds so delicate and airy. I found it to have a cinematic quality to it as well. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this in a movie or an anime perhaps. The fiddle took it to the next level for me. Extremely relaxing, and very ethereal.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing!
