We have Vegemite & Marmite though the latter is far, far less popular. Like butter on bread it's the 'mites are a great success story of early introduction and continued use through family culture and salt addiction. Something has to be done with excess milk and the waste of the beer making process... James, it's familiar in that it comes with the "James Changes" but there's nothing hackneyed about the music or the lyric. You write from your heart and that is clear. Your turn of ph

I don't know if you have this in the US and in Canada, but, here in the UK, we have a food spread called Marmite. The idea is that people either love or hate Marmite. Nothing in between. So with this song. You may either say that it's a cliche', both harmonically and lyrically - same old chord progressions, same subject with the lyrics ... or you may perhaps, who knows, like it for what it is ... a somewhat sappy (haha) love song. Or, perhaps, my Marmite analogy is completely off, and you may j

Don, Thanks for posting the music. That helps a lot. The notation that uses two beats in a bar is a compound duple time. That is, a 2-beat rhythm where the beats are based on two dotted quarter notes. Notation in 3/4 is a simple triple time and when 3/4 is notated, it uses ties to help identify the the 1/4-note beats. (I'd imagine that you know this. I'm mentioning it in case others who read this post haven't come across this terminology before.) This arrangement (or song) looks like it might

I don't usually cry when listening to songs. I had tears in my eyes when hearing this one. On a second listen, gathering my thoughts somewhat: what is there to say? Beautiful lyrics, wonderful signing, a brilliant production overall. Yes, as some have said, a little Beatles-like influence can be heard ... but the song is beautiful, in any case. And that ending. Heartfelt and sincere. Hats off.

If you actually navigate into the Style Demos Audio folder in Finder, outside of Band-in-a-Box, do you actually see the file _GUAJIRA.m4a, and if you double-click to play it, does it play in the default m4a player on your system? If not, could you press command+I on the Style Demos Audio folder (get info), and set the permissions to read and write for all, and click apply to enclosed?

Click on 3/4 and drag and drop it on a new blank score right over the 4/4. Bring over your track. I hope this helps.
