    edit: I love the tempo and mood of Snorlax's piece, uplifting and bold, but mine is trying for the opposite, slow or quiet and contemplative, the intent was for it to sound like the end of a work, but not to sound too somber, don't know if it does.
    Leaf,

    Very nice contemplative and brooding bass melody. You did a terrific job and it certainly does sound like the end of a work. It's fascinating that starting with the same material how the mood can be changed.

    Thanks for posting your exercise. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

    Crazykeys,

    If you can host it on your own server just insert the link. If you cannot, email me the mp3 and PDF and I'll host it and post it.

    Thanks very much for those comments, Gary.

    I have this funky little 99 dollar keyboard, but with GPO it sounds just like a Steinway... plus all these other instruments... and now this course, sometimes I have to just pinch myself.

    Best Regards,
    David

    He's a real pro when it comes to audio, and I'm sure the pros around here can probably tell you a better higher quality method, but the way i did it is easy and does not require much, Itunes (which is free) has a converter.

    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    (if you uncheck the two boxes, you don't have to put your email address in there to download itunes)

    click "Preferences"
    click "Advanced"
    click "Importing"
    then on "Import Using" choose "MP3 Encoder"
    then click "OK" at the bottom.

    Now if Itunes is your default player when you click a wma or wav I think it will autoumatically be converted

    but just n case it is not, after it is in Itunes you can click the song to make that line turn blue, then on the "Advanced" drop down menu, click "Convert Selection to MP3"


    Now where your music is saved it will be there, for me in My Music there was an iTunes folder with another folder in it that was called untitled, and it was in there.

    Best Regards,
    David

    Jamiha,

    I may have accidently gave you some false info, i'm not able to open a wma with iTunes. I though you could convert it just like you do .wav's, but apparently it won't open a .wma if you are on a mac, i don't know if it will in windows.

    Hi - I'd like to jump in! My .mp3 file is

    http://homepage.mac.com/stevepur/GPO...ases-steve.mp3

    and my score is

    http://homepage.mac.com/stevepur/GPO...teve-score.pdf

    I kept the melody simple, fitting my impression of the background and my understanding of what the contrabass can do well. I pretty much left the background alone, adding a little reverb and tweaking volume levels.

    This is done in Logic pro 7, with the melody line played live on a keyboard using the mod wheel and a few tweaks by hand in Logic.

    I welcome all comments, critical and otherwise. I miss Prof. Belkin's detailed comments, so I hope he will continue them.

    Though I've owned GPO for a couple years this is the first time I've used it for a lead line, utilizing the mod wheel expression feature. I'm really impressed at how expressive it is.

    Thanks Gary for this amazing course!!! It's really gotten me off my butt to do some music again.

    Steve
