Description
This song goes along with the "Waltz for Classical Guitar"
http://www.macjams.com/song/24205

The third song that fits with these two is "Carnival' , which I'll be posting soon.
I have played all of these songs on the guitar, and a friend of mine has also used them for recitals and a recording. This rendition is done with software instruments. The biggest drawback of GarageBand is the lack of tempo change. This song can (and should) be played with lots of rubato, which isn't possible on GB. If there are any guitarists who would like to give this a try, I have the music written out and annotated. Just drop me a note.

Nice one

something about the overall sound: happy yet with a hint of sadness,
made me think incidental music for Peter Seller's inspector Clouseau
bumbling about - that and it has some kind of French sound in the
melodies too I thought.

I don't like that GB can't do tempo adjustments either :(

Thanks for the comments
Ah- the reply function is back! Thanks for listening. The tempo changes are the
one thing I'd like to see in GarageBand to make it a more useful tool for
composers. Maybe in GarageBand 4??

Thanks for your nice comments!
And for listening, apb and Scotty. I haven't posted much this summer, so I
don't expect a whole lot of people to come trolling by, It's nice you both
took the time to listen. Yeah, I did get 'hit' by someone who apparently
doesn't like it much. Too bad they didn't take the time to comment and
tell me how this could have been improved to their satisfaction :) Oh-
hey, Cydniko, it looks like you got to listen, too. Nice of you to drop by.

very pretty
And there is a bit of lilt in it... And although you cannot easily ritard/
accel the tempo with the pencil tool, GarageBand WILL let you set the
duration of any of the notes smoothly, ignoring note-gridlines, so it
will record that effect exactly, if you played it in (or had a MIDI file that
had those gradual tempo changes). It is just not something you would
want to try to do *in* Garageband. You'd want to write the score that
way in Finale/Harmony Assistant, then export the MIDI and import it
into GB, and GB *should* play it correctly. I'll have to try that
sometime, though.
Very pretty piece! I like the harmonies a lot, very satisfying. You
know, you could raise this 2 octaves, and play it on the music box, and
it would also be gorgeous.
ttfn,
Drakonis
