Thanks Jim ... much appreciated. You never know about those film & TV music directors. I'm always the optimist but never get down if I don't get the call. Life brings what it does (or doesn't) and I deal with it! Again, many thanks. Wishing you the best ...

I feel like it's really appropriate for a talent show! If you do ever make it in to a full song like you want to please make sure to share it with us. grin

Sounds really good to me, Alan! Have you submitted it anywhere?

As to the guitar chord at :09, what I will often do is find a measure on this instrument that's not a "come in" measure that has the same chord in beat 1, and it is generated differently - so I copy that 1 measure, and paste it in place of the offending measure. You probably already do this, and perhaps this particular rt is stubborn. smile

Love this one!

Steve

Nice piece. I like the end chord. Because it is a talent show, I agree with you that it builds the anticipation of what is to come, the excitement of the competition. If this were an intro for a sitcom, then I think it wouldn't work.

Wonderful vibe! And when the lead guitar kicks in it's captivating!

Great composition!

I think it is a very good piece of music and it is their loss if they do not respond to you.

Well done!

Many thanks to all who have commented since my last reply. I sincerely appreciate all the kind words. Di's medical issues have kept me away from the boards other than very short look-ins. But ... she is getting better!

Again, thanks so very much!

Alan

Hi, dear Alan,

whatever song you write, they're all great and I haven't heard a single one which I wouldn't have liked a lot. This one is no exception: very, very nice. I can't imagine it was put in a trash can; I'd rather put it on a mantlepiece ;-)).

I definitely would love to listen to a longer version - the material is just too good to leave it at that.

Al, please excuse the shortness of this comment - I do hope that you and most of all Di are good.

All the best to you and Di, dear friend,

Stefan

PS: I'd like to have rayc's ears...

Hi Steve ...

It's just a stubborn track! No matter what I put in that measure, it comes out truncated. I've even tried different instruments and get the same results. But thanks for the suggestions anyway! Gl;ad you like it! Still haven't heard back. Oh well!

Wishing you & yours the very best ...

Alan

Thanks Greg! Still haven't heard anything back, yet! If it's accepted, that's good. If it's not accepted, my life won't be ruined! I've always believed that things happen the way they do. I can live very comfortably with that.! Best to you. Wishing you and yours nothing but the best ...

Alan,

Great sound!
I also think it would make a good opening song to a musical TV program.
I agree with Dave.
I also could see this as full length piece, it has good bones.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi Alan,

I agree with Bob. When you opened full throttle, my first reaction was "This is great!". Arrangements such as these seem to come so very easily to you. you definitely have the knack for fine and diverse music.

All the best,
Noel

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Want to hear what a chord sounds like? Type the chord, then press SHIFT enter. The chord will play as it is entered on to the chord sheet!

You can also familiarize yourself with how different chords sound using the Chord Builder feature of the program, which will audition different chords for you, based on your input.

Want more? Challenge yourself with some ear training with the included Pitch Invasion and Music Replay programs, accessible in the Practice Window!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above, and Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

Pitch Invasion & Music Replay can also be accessed within the bb\Songs and Lessons\Ear Training folder for the program.
