I've done a little collaboration on the board sharing different tracks and jointly contributing to an original tune, but this past week, I got some great advice via PM from @mjark on a track where his only contribution was wonderfully honest feedback. After I posted a possible track for this week's jam, the general consensus was it was a bit too active and already "complete". I didn't entirely agree with that, but no big deal. This is music after all. I decided to complete my tune, jam or no jam. I shared it with @mjark. He rightly pointed out the lead was way too dense and reminded me of the value of restraint. I know better, but clearly had lost sight. I want to publicly thank him for pushing me to do better. And that's the point. While I think it's important not to chase other people's ideas for what your music should be, it's also useful to listen to criticism that resonates with your tastes and goals. Anyway, here's what I ended up coming up with. It may be too busy for some tastes, not enough for others, and everything I do certainly could be mixed better, but it's a much better product for @mjark's assistance - for simply taking a little time. Note that another friend of mine thought my original take was spot on. In the end, I agreed with @mjark and reworked it extensively. Thanks @mjark!
