    I see we get free source code with our posts now. :sneaky: Looks like those site bugs might not all be ironed out yet.

    Why is it panned left so much? The right track seems half as loud....or less?

    because my idea of what "new track with duplicate settings" means and garageband's differ slightly... (that is, gb had the volume all the down on the panned right and up the middle tracks... :confused:) all fixed now!

    thanks Monte for the provided track! I need to relax and the backing is very well suited for that (relaxed is not not my playing, though)

    That's quite interesting. Not sure if I can add something, though. Will have a go.

    nice sound @Raimonds. I was looking for the right sound for this one but don't think I found it. It appears you did. :thumb:

    For my money this one is Cmajor. But that's a minor point as it's all relative (get it, get it ?)

    @Raimonds and @roger@pennyflic both really nice takes... melodic and energetic, really kicking it into epic ballad territory... and here i thought i'd played something half decent... oh well back to the practice room...

    Whatever key it's in I have nothing for it. Even with my low standards I can't get there.

    This was hard for me to try a sound and melody that wasn't the same old thing. But I gave it a shot trying to be a bit unpredictable
