Score attached. It's a short piece but I think I will extend it - maybe pizz strings & harp coming in after the final Amaj chord and develop it from there.- CDContinue

"Colin, Thanks! The pipe organ is out of the Kontakt 4 library. As far as a score, I can't help you because I can't read music. I know what the notes are on a staff if I really think about it but I could no more read a score than fly to the…"

"Hi Rick I'm listening you your organ comp as I write - I'm hearing elements of Mr Kite and merry-go-round. Could be very psychodelic. Nice work. How ddi you realise it, what organ vst did you use, can you post the score? Cheers, Colin"

Colin Dougall replied to Rick's discussion How's the arrangement?
"Hi Rick First impressions, lots of changes in instrumentation, can be a good strategy Gav's comments not withstanding. Is there a score?, how did you realise it? It could be a fill in the spirit of Sgt Pepper's or other prog rock epic so…"

How are you doing with that VSL organ Colin?
I’ve thought about buying that a few times over the years but never got ‘round to it.
I’ve also pressed my 10 thumbs on many great pipe organs around Scotland and the North of England 20 odd years ago when I had a little sideline servicing their blowers and humidifiers.
So, is it Skye in Summer, Nethy in winter?

Colin,
I’m wondering where you are in Scotland but thinking it may be up north going by your cairn gorm piece. I’m in Stirling, now and for a long long time :)
