    Unhappy The Love Letter

    Yah, I know. I'm late for Valentine's Day. Again... sorry.. but I hope this makes up for it.

    Writing music for the joy of it. (with Windows 7 64bit, Intel i7 processor, 12GB memory, LOTS of disk space, Finale 2014, Garritan GPO, JABB3, COMB, Steinway, World Instruments, & Soundiron Olympus Micro Choir. And if I ever figure out how to use Sonar X2...the sky's the limit)

    Mitch. This has a nice sound to it. I like your theme but I must admit that it sounds just a little reminiscent of several themes I have heard before. Not that it's a bad thing because it means that you are writing what you hear, which is the way it should be done. A very pleasant listen. Thanks, Jay.

    It is dulcet enough for the title, but is a bit too tame for my taste; for Valentine’s Day I would have like a bit more passion in the piece.

    Come on Ed, not all of us are the Red Hot Lovers we used to be... ;-)

    It's very lovely, Mitch - Gently, quietly rendered as is appropriate for the music. I expected something wistful - big clue was the unhappy smiley in your subject line. Certainly good to hear some music from you - it's been too long.

    Thanks Randy. Have been busy writing but just not satisfied enough to post yet (until I came up with this one). I finally broke down and started taking private composition lessons from one of the local professors at St. Olaf College. I hope it's paying off in both the sound and appearance of my work. But then, there isn't a whole lot of wiggle room for sound using Finale but I do the best I can with it. Garritan CPO really helps. Actually, the unhappy face was only because I was late getting out by Valentine's day...

    Thanks again!!!

    I liked this even though it wasn't exactly teddy& chocolates. It felt more like an old a close friendship.


    I think you could have been a little more adventuress but it was a pleasant listen.
