"I still believe extracting the violin line and maybe moving it down an octave may yield some suggestions. I respect it'll be a problem because if you later wanted to add a few bars intro that may create a new problem. Also see if other chords…"

"Not at all for the bin! There's a lot of material there for development. But hoping you'll excuse me saying so, the underlying harmony needs variation. (But then you know me, anything that holds a key for more than half a bar gets…"

Should I throw This In The Bin?

 This centers around the question of what you might use as building blocks for music and why you might discard something you worked on.This likely differs with the composer.I began this several days ago with no real direction. Things I like about it- I like the combination of instruments, bouzouki, drums, violin, flute and an elvish voice singing in the background.Things I dislike about it - It needs to break away from AM in a big way. Tempo might be a bit slow. I could see maybe taking the…See More

Hi Tim, I looked at CF briefly this morning and I believe I saw a post from you talking about being affected by the pandemic situation and the particular difficulty it has for us as musicians. This is good to talk about since many of us have similar feelings I'm sure.
