Description
Here is my attempt at the two track challenge.

As with every attempt I make, I like to say I learned something new about the world of music and this was no different. First of all, I learned that perhaps I should stick to one track, second, I never realized how much more difficult it would be if there were no chickens included (a big departure from my earlier works).

I played with guitar tracks this time and attempted to put different loops together (different notes), not just picking one loop and gluing it all over the screen. Chris also learned a lot in this venture, one, that he can NOT help me.... just YES or NO.. that was all he was allowed and two.. I HAVE mastered being a DIVA!!!!

I had a great time and maybe I still not understand what it is I am doing, at least I get a chance to try things so thanks again for putting this challenge together.

BTW... I didnt know what genre this was so I picked MuzaK as I think it best if you are trapped on hold or held captive in an elevator to enjoy the full fruits of my labour!

This tune is dedicated to me moving on to a new chapter of my life, the completion of my schooling and leaving my past behind me

"Trapped in an elevator with you..."
Sounds like a great song lyric for Chris to write! :-) Very nice work Sheila, and major congratulations for sticking to the schoolwork and finishing it up, what a long hard road it's been, littered with cheetoh's and chats-gone-amok, we look forward to more Sheila now!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Way to go Sheila
Not only did you finish school, you finished this song. Sounds like you're getting a handle on the loops and the music.

Very enjoyable listen, Kudos for both tracks and the success with school.

yes!
I finished my tune in record time and Chris only has three times more grey hair from my Diva demands and lack of taking his advice. Who needs advice when I can make a mess all by myself???? Thanks again Ed and say hi to Jeannie!

not sure
how creative it is but it made me happy. I tried to get really fancy but as you can tell.. that got scrapped really fast and this is what was left.

Good work. On your profile you say you don't have a musical note in your body. Well, then, you've been invaded by aliens 'cos this is very musical and I like it a lot. (Maybe I'm an alien too!!)

oh how I have missed you so thank you for stopping by. I must admit, I looked for plinky punk but for some reason it was not listed. Perhaps I should petition for the inclusion of that category

I have the
other 2 minutes of that short span so I guess that is how this got so long. Thank you for all your advice in the early years of my "career". If it wasnt for you I would not know a blue loop from a green one (haha). Maybe Cheetos should sponsor MJ's... I am sure we have made their bottom line soar

I would've
Classed it as acoustic rock 'cause you got some drums. Great way to start. I like the progression you put together. At first I was wondering why you weren't jamming with us here in Texas. Lots of potential.. Thanks for sharing.

I thought
experimental since it really was an experiment and I thought acoustic would sound like I knew what I was doing so MuzaK it was! I sure would have jammed with you guys if Jack had remembered to pack a box of loops in that over filled car of his!

I owe it all to you... if it was not for the benefit concert you held to raise money for my MJ jail bail I would still be crashing the system and creating havoc. Now I quietly terrorize the halls of MJ's when no one is looking

garage band
is seriously lacking in the Q loops and someone should really work on adding those so that I may expand and grow my talents! You are correct, no excessive delete abuse occurred (only minor deletes to keep my tune on edge and not let it get too comfortable). Good thing I was limited to two track or it could have quickly turned into a disaster

So glad you stopped in... I was worried as I have not spaced my posts as well as I should... It has been less than a year and I know that is crowding them. I hope I dont burn out at such a middle age (I gave up on being young)

so maybe that "time" I found was actually the time I was supposed to be using to write essays (oops). After watching you two play I am so inspired to learn more and more. Chris will have grey hair for sure so you will have to come over just to save him

Way To Go
I was just listening to your beautiful dedication from Chris & had to come and check out your music.

First, a big congratulations on finishing school. That is such an accomplishment, and I'm sure you are thrilled and relieved!

This is terrific, and it's done with loops? That is awesome, anyone who can use loops so well IS a Diva! I use them too, love 'em!

Loops
are all I am allowed to play with... I am sure Chris will hide his guitars from me and lock me out of the studio (as he should!) I look forward to a new chapter in life and to learn all I can about creating music, Something that I have never been able to comprehend is how all these wonderful talented people can create such wonderful enjoyable works of art but every day I am thankful that they do and even more so, thankful that they choose to share their gifts
