Description
This is a little sketch of a song I'm hoping someone will work with me on. I just played out the basic melody line on this (still some changes and lengthening to make in there at the bridge but that's pretty much it really). If I get any suck-er, takers on this thing, I'd write and do the vocals as well as fleshing out the piano part (the rhythm section here, which is just one of those "automatic" deals can stay or go, depending!)

Thanks again and hope your week is off to a good start!

Michael

PS: My thanks to Andrew (Alackbass) for his suggestions and pointers. Andrew, I'm just starting to have lots of fun with the things you explained, so much appreciated!

Thanks Bryn...
Yeah, that auto rhythm plug in I got was worth it--lots to choose from, although it kind of hinders my playing down in the bass. I think this may wind up more of an instrumental than anything. Take care now, Michael

Very Cool
I really dig the arrangement thus far, and hope someone takes you up on your offer. I'm so happy you're getting used to the whole recording bit now.

I certainly look forward to hearing this completed, I know it will be awesome. Btw, would I be a smarty-pants if I said I really enjoyed the :59 second mark? Teehee...

Impsie baby...
...I wouldn't mind a real wind instrument tooting around on this thing--but we'll see! Oh yes, yanno, I didn't realize there was all that lead out left on the track--I done fooked up that time! You are a goodun you are--thanks again! Michael

It's going to be
a very cool song Michael. If you intend to keep the auto accomp as Bryne suggested, I think you've got already pretty much what is needed. If you'd work with a band, I guess a drummer and bassist would do ? Very cool song in perspective.

Hi Yves
Yeah, basically a rhythm section (I feel more comfy playing with a combination anyway!) and hopefully a wind instrument would be nice, but I may just work this up myself and see what comes out of it. The chorus needs a bit of work too. Thanks again guy, Michael

Think your gonna impress us even more this year.
Reminded me of "bring me sunshine" in places.
So far, so good.

Careful, I might even depress you even more this year!
But all seriousness aside, thanks for listening to this thing! I'm not familiar with "Bring Me Sunshine", although I'll listen now that you have me curious! For the chorus, I did crib the chord structure from another well known instrumental (guesses anyone?) so I need to modify that to make it more of an original deal. You take care sir!

Moe!
Bless your hear, that is just what I was aiming for--something like those great songs from France that were so very popular in the late 50s and early 60s....very good deduction! I'm no Charles Trenet but I'll give it my best pop here! Thanks again Maurice--take care now, Michael

Sounds great Michael. You've been steeped in those classics for a while, it would probably be hard for you to write a bad song. Looking forward to hearing this develop.

Hi Dave
The funny thing is, over the past million years or so (until just lately--I'm trying to get back into playing professionally), I would just sit and doodle around for hours, kind of writing little "mini" songs and stuff. Now I have to try to make one not so "mini"! Appreciated hearing from ya--you take care now! Michael

I love it! Great melody and that 2 feel in the bass just glides! It is such a treat hearing what a gifted pianist you are!

Thanks Andrew
As mentioned, I'm really appreciative of the clear and concise guidance you gave me (I've got some books on the questions I had and couldn't really figure out what they were talkin' 'bout!) You are too kind--but don't give any accolades until I play this with more than one finger! You take care now, Michael

Nice melody...
Coming up with a tune is a great talent. I'm trying to figure out how to do it myself with little success so far. You have it.
