eric,

I think it's cool that you are adding in other instruments - doing the midi thing.

This one seemed to wander... the e pianos don't seem to be able to find the groove.

Your guitar sounded great - not enough if it in this one. - floyd

nice progression going on.

To eliminate the long tail get and use a wave editor. After you export the song open it in the editor and trim it.

This is the one I use: http://www.nch.com.au/wavepad/index.html

It is free.... after the trial period it offers the option to activate the demo version with limited function. Normalizing, converting to MP3, and trimming are part of the features that remain functional.

The song is cool and laid back, but some of the scales and riffs are not in the proper scale..... notes are not fitting in places.

You can fix that with a few options depending....

1. be sure the key matches the chords you are using.
2. render several tracks, not just one, for that given instrument and use creative editing.
3. use melodyne to fix those notes

my 2 cents

Hi Eric,

Nice sound, as always. I do agree with pretty much all that has been suggested. Would like to hear more of your guitar.

Hello, "F.M.M."...

Does the "F.M.M." stand for "Feel My Music?" In that case, "The Lady" in your composition sounds like someone that a guy could have a l-o-n-g, pleasurable conversation with in a noisy nightclub, though he'd have to do a lot of listening to keep her interested, 'cuz she definitely seems to be a sophisticated lady!

The song manages to be funky and mellow at the same time, and since the equation (funky) + (mellow) = sexy, that means you're gonna have to drop that conversation with the quickness, partner,'cuz it looks to me like she wants to dance with you...

Hi Eric,

Very laid back, very enjoyable! I found this sound an interesting mix of Realtracks and midi. The 12/8 drum beat against the SW 16 piano had a creative and inventive cross-over feel to me that was reminiscent of the 70s cross-over jazz styles.

I liked it.

Keep on experimenting! I'm grateful for the musical ideas you give me smile

All the best,
Noel
