So, you composed this one "a while ago", and there was I thinking what inspiration a good holiday in the lovely countryside of Ireland can bring - I was just guessing that your recent holiday was in the emerald isle.

A lovely piece, Pamela. A simple melody (simplicity always works best) with an 'Irish' feel to it, and a nice wistful (if that's the word) quality about it. Good work.

Pam,

This is a very pretty song. It seems to exemplify the way I have come to picture your inner self from just knowing you through the years, in a few forums!

Light, airy, simplistic, easy going, but yet purposeful and commanding.

I really like the choral ooh's. You've laid them in there just right.

A beautiful melody, and as I said, overall a very pretty song. Ranks right up there kid!

Thank you both Howie and Krazy, the holiday was in Ibiza,never been to Ireland, keep promising myself, one day,and to Krazy,Would love to meet you, I'd bet we'd get on like a house on fire, On my other forum YPKO some members and myself, all agreed to meet up and bring our instruments to Blackpool and have some fun, I started off the show with some trepidation as it's years since I played in public, and decided to ' fancy dress ' up for the occasion, hence the avatar, wouldnt it be great if we could do that here, we've already booked for next June...Pam
PS, Glad you both liked the song...Pam

Hi Pam
I first thought "to get this Howie guy to comment it must be good" . I only listened to the Mp3 and I thought the choir overwhelmed the melody up to where the strings came in. I'll listen to the midi tonight and I'm sure after a bit of remixing the melody will come through better - it sounded a fine melody from what I could hear with a definite Irish lilt. So I will crack a Guinness and report back later
Cheers
Spike

Hi Pam
Had a listen to it on my T2 and it's a little better - the culprit I think was ch14 so I've remixed it and sent it by e-mail. Now I think it sounds a lot better still and it also reveals the nice melody you've composed
Cheers
Spike

LOL! I guess that's a compliment, Spike, so thank you for that.

Yes, I suppose I am a bit sparse with my comments, but if I hear something that resonates with me, then that is my sole motivator. That is the major function of music, to provoke a reaction. After all, that is the goal of any artist regardless of the medium and Pam's composition did strike a chord with me. I'm not so big on the technical side of things, it's all about the 'feel' for me.

Best regards,
Howie

Pam,

In reply to your earlier post, I'd absolutely love meeting you, and yes, I'm sure we would, to put it in your words, "get it on like a house on fire"!

Bringing our instruments and everyone jamming is an excellent idea also, but I'm afraid I'm not up to the trip anymore, unfortunately. If I was I'd say, let's set this thing up, and I'd be there in a heartbeat!
