  1. hi friend what about you

    thank u

  2. Ah, that's actually Suspicious Minds.
  3. Thus far I've only written sacred choral music. In a way I have it easy in that the subject and sometimes text are somewhat defined for me. I see what we need and I fill it. The creative part is finding the right feel for the event. For example, I wrote a Magnificat a couple of years ago and because Mary was Jewish I wanted to give the song a Jewish feel. It came off sounding vaguely like a hora which added to the enjoyment of singing it. And last year for Christmas Eve I wrote a piece that essentially was a lullaby so the music fit that style.
  4. Anyone who has been here for any length of time knows I'm an odd duck. All I really need is notation software and the best for the money I could find to meet my needs was Noteworthy. Now that I know the keyboard shortcuts it's become even easier for me. Occasionally I find that a music editor is a good thing to have so I got Audacity. I don't use it often though and so I'm not familiar with a lot of the intricacies of using it.
  5. Aw, cmon... I'm not the biggest fan of country music either but sure there are happy/upbeat songs. From the old (Hank Williams' "Hey Good Lookin') to the new (Toby Keith's "I Ain't As Good As I Once Was") and in between (lots of stuff by Johnny Cash).
  6. Big Girls Don't Cry --- The Four Seasons Glad this game is still going strong! And I just noticed this is my 500th post!
  7. The perfect marriage of music and hell. Buy your copy today! Operators are standing by!
  8. Agreed. I think there's too much dilution (translation: ripping off) of creativity now as it is. The e-mail may be above-board but I'm wondering what Herr Henkel's stake in this is. Maybe I missed something.
  9. Oooooo, Steve works in the red light district! I'm also often a midnight oil-burner. My best work seems to be done right in my bedroom when it's fairly quiet, but now that I think about it, the song I've written that I've been proudest of so far was written on my old laptop during lulls at work. Maybe I should rethink my strategy. Oh, and I also seem to work well when I have a deadline, whether self-imposed or because I've been commissioned to write for a specific event.
  10. Disclaimer: I haven't clicked the link and I may have more input once I do. I have merely gotten the gist from the posts in this thread so far. As Tom said, there is a great demand for instant gratification today. In a sense we're all guilty, or the internet wouldn't have nearly the draw that it does. On the other hand, quality is still valued as well (to a point; there are many examples on the airwaves of trash being king, but nonetheless people still vote with their dollars and attention). I doubt that we will see "All computer-generated music, all the time" as a radio format unless the world becomes much more Orwellian than it is now. One additional thought: This type of thing is one reason I have shied away from using Band In A Box or similar programs. I know that particular program has many fans here and I don't discount its value, but it still has a certain creepiness factor for me.

    Happy Birthday!
