"So I feel like I did a pretty complete draft on my part of the song's music. I changed the lyrics here and there, and those changes are all set as suggestions on the google doc we have.
I also left the piano parts, as rudimentary as they are,…"
"Okay, that's good. I agree that the two lines do seem odd, and it's really a thematic choice, like you said. I'll work to lessen the weirdness.
I agree that this site's died. I wish you luck rounding up assistance."
"Hey man, I'm totally cool with you taking the song in your own direction; that's what keeping all these versions is for. And the direction you're taking the song is totally consistent with what I had in mind.
I'm not 100%…"
"That reminds me of something else I was going to say: if other people are going to be involved, the music creators are going to have to be open to change, perhaps if the musicians were to not like some part of the music or what have you."
"I worked more on Verse 1 + 2 and Chorus 1+2. I'm a little afraid I might have obliterated whatever idea of the song you, Joseph, had thought up, and I apologize if I did.
Anyway, I think it's important to remember, if this is what is…"
"I put in some stuff and added the first two lines, though I suppose the rhythm dissuaded you from doing it originally. I can see why you decided like that, as it was tricky to collect. What I ended up doing was kinda cheating, but it's not…"
"I agree about the need for piano, but I'm hesitant to add more because I'm not as familiar as I want myself to be. I could add some ditty if you want, but just some ditty is all it's going to be...
I don't know if the charting…"
"Wow, sounds great. Probably about 80% of the way there to being a complete song that's not bad to listen to. Great idea to switch the vocals to trombone and the drums and bass blend really well with the melody. One point…"
"So I updated all the parts I haven't touched yet for "Never Final." I need feedback on that, ideas and whatnot. Also, there is not a whole lot of piano in the song, mostly because I don't have a good knowledge base about piano…"
"So I got around to creating a separate and SBF-dedicated NF account, "Sareilles". The pass is "54r4". I don't know if this will ever be relevant, but I've also created, in the process, a separate gmail address:…"
"Thanks, Joseph. I changed the main piano part to trombone to really be able to differentiate between vocal and instrument, and think it sounds better. But then I started to change around other stuff for the first verse, which I thought pleased my…"
"Ok, finally got up to putting the rest of the draft up on Musescore and made a separate document to work on the melody separately. There's a few hairy parts still in the melody, mostly in the 2nd and 3rd verses so next time I put in work…"
