It was such a great idea that Gary had sponsoring the July 4th contest that I had to get out my little ole Mac and work up a medley of what I think are great patriotic songs.
I normally write out an arrangement and then sequence it, but this time, I just played the piano into Logic 6 and then viewed the notes as I arranged them for other instruments. I had never done it that way before, but it was cool just looking at a piano score (played in) and then using it to orchestrate. It sure saved a lot of time with pencil and paper.
Hope you all are waving your flags as you listen here:
NOTE: I have been signing off as John (which is my formal first name). I prefer Jack so, to avoid confusion, I will use that from now on. Thank you DPDAN. Heh, heh. Now I don't have to be addressed John/Jack
