I wrote this on my piano and plopped all the notes into the Sonar piano roll then overlaid the melody and added the rest of the arrangement. The "Star Trek" intro/outro just seemed to fit with the particular virtual synth patch I was messing around with at the time. The cymbal "whooshes" in the beginning are supposed to be the Enterprise.. I know, I know corny right? Enjoy.See More

"I'm not sure what I was expecting from the title, but that was not it I was thinking angst, and got pop. ;) Nice, light tune. I think this one is crying out for some lyrics and a vocal."

This is a song I wrote completely in the piano roll in Sonar 8.5. I do play finger picking guitar but this was a sampled nylon string guitar played with my mouse on my laptop without the aid of my guitar. I love living in the space age! It's called "Mental Suicide".-RickSee More
