full of sweetness and charm
Like a murmuring river, calmly flowing with a cheerful pace, full of simplicity and gentle serenity. With the strings being the sunrays happily caught as a reflection in the round little waves. Carefree and light, following the water until the sun sets, calling home her little children. It's also time to upgrade the string library (dang! where did my poetry go.). The piano sounds so lovely and your beautiful playing deserves to be backed up an equally pleasing violin ensemble:) Really did find this inspiring and soothing, I'm just joking about the strings.

Thanks Parichayaka
You are too funny. I know my strings are terrible and I appreciate you pointing it out for everyone. Now I will need counseling to to get over the hurt you have caused!!! LOL - I tried something different than I usually use and I did not realize all the mistakes I left on here until it was too late. I believe in leaving it up as is....don't ask me why. I am crazy I guess. :) I sincerely appreciate your listen and sweet words. Thanks for listening.

Soothing and refreshing - wait...you already said that. Actually this is very nice -
I like how you have created an entire work surrounding a central musical theme - one of
those beautifully dissonant melodies that can be heartwarming and melancholy, all at the
same time. Very nice work - Thanks for sharing this with us.

Ok
now I will sleep well.. Thank you Gail! So amazingly great to see you posting music... I makes my soul so very very happy.

I do miss your vocals but I also know that in your hands a piano is like the brush of a Renaissance master. With every stroke I know greatness will flow forth. No words are required.

Very wonderful Gail! Very wonderful indeed!

How soothing.
This is such a pretty piece, Gail. The very gentle rolling nature of the whole score just puts my soul at rest. Oh, that final cadence is so sweet, the strings bringing the whole thing to a gentle conclusion. Ah...
Peace.

Soothing for sure
Yes, it is exactly as you say, refreshing and soothing. Just finished listening to Paul Page's new piano composition, also calming, and I must say it is a treat to be able to hear such exquisite music here… you are a very special talent.

One quibble: The overlying melody in the strings is very pretty, and fits well with the beautiful piano playing, but I found the quality of the strings sound detracted somewhat from the overall experience… it is always difficult to make MIDI strings sound real, but there are string sample libraries now that are quite good (some are amazing, but are priced accordingly, unfortunately!) … I have not tried it, but I have heard others' posts using the Garageband Symphony Orchestra Jam Pack, and it sounds very impressive, esp. for the price. If you would like to check it out: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MA319Z/A

Anyway, beautiful, and I thank you for sharing your wonderful gifts with us.

Thanks for taking the time to comment and tell me that my strings are crap. I have been so tortured today! ha ha.... I hear them and I HATE them too. I tried something different and here you have it. Boo Hiss Boo... :) If you would be so kind to send me money to purchase a new stringy thingy, I would sooooo appreciate it! Seriously, I am so glad you liked this and I respect your opinion very much. Thanks for the compliments.

just what the doctor ordered
Beautiful music to sooth the irritating insect bites I got in the woods this weekend. Why isn't this listed as a treatment on WebMD? Very nice string accompaniment in the background, but I agree with the others that commented on upgrading your library. How about getting some editing software, SS?

Please refer to the above comment and send money to me! Kids in college ya know....I am glad this helped your insect bites, and very happy that you liked it. Thanks for listening. Yes I know that I will never be as great as you are...but I will continue to try!! :) I sincerely appreciate your friendship so much.

amber sunset on the lake
the sailboat, gently but steadily guided across the lake by a breeze of love, makes orange ripples in the water as it glides powerfully toward its destination, its soulmate, waiting on the shore with the gift of a lifetime, the kiss of the bow on the sand. We are home.
Love it Gail... you hopeless romantic you!

TobinMueller said 3071 days ago (June 25th, 2009)
Continuum peacefulness
I love these sorts of peaceful arpeggio pieces. The piano is expressively played, full of heart. The backing synth strings are nice at the outset, but seem unnecessary by the end, in my ears, perhaps becuz they never take the lead, as in a concerto, and offer a melodic alternative or variation. They are also kind of a stiff, not as expressive; varying the attack on the patch or actually using separate string sections in tandem might alleviate that stiffness and lend a more human feel to that element of the arrangement. A very soothing, sweet track. Thanks for sharing.

gail60 said 3068 days ago (June 27th, 2009)
Thanks Tobin
I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to listen and leave such deep feedback about this song. I really missed the mark when I chose these strings, but I swear they sounded better in the headphones. That was my mistake, not listening to it without them first. :) Oh well, I am glad you liked the song anyway. Thank you!

Ed Hannifin said 3069 days ago (June 27th, 2009)
Awfully nice, Gail...
Great sonority and a nice, rolling feel... I think Parichayaka is correct that the piano's timbre and recorded sound is much superior to the string patch sounds... That's a nit that I've had with a few piano based compositions on MacJams... Some of the new piano samples are so good that everything else sounds a little artificial in comparison...

Nevertheless, the vibe of the whole thing is peaceful, and the coolness of the composition comes through...

I agree. Some of the strings sounds are so terrible and it is hard to know which to choose when you have such limited choices. I agree with everyone here though, they are not the greatest violins I have ever heard :) But, thanks for the kind words and I am happy you liked the song.

debmac said 3067 days ago (June 28th, 2009)
absolutely beautiful!
Even more than refreshing and soothing, I found your composition inspiring and I am in awe of your musical gift...

your ability to soften the notes in all the right places and and (I'm searching for the right words...) and then bring about a feeling of gentle yet solid strength thru the lower notes, just enough, to get the feeling of rising up and carrying on...

not sure if this would make sense to anyone else as I lack the musical terms I am looking for ( I quit piano lessons way too soon I see ), and everyone will have their own interpretation of the song, but this song will be with me for a while!!

Also as I'm just new to MJ's, I'm grateful that there are so many talented people such as yourself that share music and
encouragement. Thank you!

I wish I could help you out with those string sounds... but! The strength in a piece comes from it's composition, not it's rendition. And the composition is lovely (especially the piano ;)
