I'll Be There was quite nice. Two things in particular that I liked: You're always very effective at using the single-notes / arpeggios in the chord slot, something that isn't as easy as it seems, since each song has its own standard pattern built-in that it repeats. I often try it out and can't make it sound the way I want, but you always seem to find so many alternate patterns in there (usually on piano, but banjo this time!) by choosing just the right beats, and it works out very well. I also loved the cello playing, nice control of volume and touch, which is what the string instruments in this game are all about.
Thanks! I've found that using the single notes while playing the chord part is a good way to create an original-sounding song. I used the banjo because I've actually been listening to some banjo music. Bukowski from Modest Mouse, specifically. Plus, I had never played I'll be There before, so I'd thought I'd try something new.
Oh, and did I send you "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"? That one turned out pretty good. Really jazzy.

Ok I've sent the finished version of my September video to some of you. Ignore my deleted post if you saw it, I'm feeling better about this tune now.@Kid_A: That Swan Lake video was class! Loved it!

I don't think I have your Wake Me Up video, Kid A, so you should correct that sometime. I reached 100 videos again recently and didn't realize it at first, as it doesn't warn you--I'd recommend checking anyone thinks they might be close. I had to just run through and delete a lot of the older videos I'd received from others, even though I like keeping some of the best of those when possible. The thing is, when you get another video past 100, it will just delete your currently lowest rated video without telling you; since I only rate my own (I don't see the point in rating videos by others, who won't see the score anyway), it meant that one or two of mine went missing before I noticed; thankfully they were just terrible videos that friends made while visiting, and that I'd probably rated 0. I've made some decent ones with friends, mind you, but as Chicken once noted, the first run through with new players is usually pretty awful.
Outrunner -- I liked that one, and in particular I thought that the use of the clarinet was perfect. Sometimes one instrument will bring together the whole sound like that, filling in a space left by the others (in this case, all those higher pitched and plucky instruments; nice to have that mellow reed come in underneath).

100 videos at the beginning seemed to be a reasonable number, but now, i have proceded eliminating some videos and it's always a terrible choice!

I've been out of town for a few days so I haven't made any new videos. I'll get back on it. (I've been a bit busy game-wise because I just unlocked the super secret last character on Punch-Out and I've been trying to beat him).

Where's Chicken been of late? To busy toting around that big shield to stop in and play some music?
348. Posted: Sat 18th Jul 2009 02:54 BST
Yeah I really need to boot his up again, especially so I can re-record my time-change experiment. It's basically done, but I want to give it a much cleaner run-through.
I've been spending my gaming time on a few others, mainly Punch Out, now, but I've also got a big (as in, massive) writing project I'm really trying to polish up by the end of the year. It's difficult...every time I sweep through it, I find myself fiddling and changing little things. I really need somebody else to read it and just help me isolate the sections that actually need work...as opposed to the ones that I could just screw around with for no good reason until the end of time.
Also, I'm afraid of the avalanche of videos I'll have waiting for me.

@Chicken Brutus: Glad you got your old avatar back! Oh and what's this writing project? I'm a bit of a writer myself.
350. Posted: Sat 18th Jul 2009 03:14 BST
Actually, it's a novel I've been working on (off and on) for the past five years. It doesn't feel like five years, but, lo and behold, I near the end of the project and do the math and a fifth of my life has been invested in this thing.
It turned out great, but...if I let myself, I'll just keep screwing with it for all eternity. So I set myself the deadline of the end of the year. I'm spending all of this time getting it in the absolute best shape I can get it (with the help of a few proofreaders I respect...one of a literary bent, and one professional humorist), and then I'll solicit some agents.
I've had a few short stories published, but my heart has always belonged to longer works, and I'm extremely proud of this novel. I just need to get it squared away at last, so that I can get it out the door, and begin the arduous process of shredding rejection letters.

I really need somebody else to read it and just held me
Read it and hold you? Well, I wouldn't mind reading it, but if I have to hold you, at least clean your feathers first.

That's great! I really love writing, but I also love drawing, so I've been tinkering with this idea for a graphic novel for a few years now. It's not some dorky super hero graphic novel (to be honest I'm actually not a comic book fan at all). I'm starting to realize that I'm just not quite good enough at drawing landscapes and the like to make it all work, so I'm going to try to collaborate with a much more talented friend of mine. Anyway, I think it's really cool that you're writing a novel, so keep me posted on how that goes!

Graphic novels are really popular for memoirs these days. I don't like super hero comics at all, so I'm glad for this change. As long as no one in your graphic novel has a cape, I'm sure it'll be great.

I actually have this one character who's a retired Superhero. His name is Captain Surrender. He was basically just a worthless political tool, used when a battle or war wasn't going particularly well. He would swoop in all dramatically and, well, surrender. It's not what the novel is about, mind you. He's just sort of a random character I threw in there for comedic purposes.
Oh, and Adam, did you ever get Wii Music?
355. Posted: Sat 18th Jul 2009 18:03 BST
Nah, the guy I ordered from said he couldn't find it, haha, so I got refunded. But thanks for reminding me. I'll check Ebay again. I just spent a lot on a DSi and some games, so I'll get Music if I can find it cheap used.
Oh, and the retired superhero is hilarious!

Maestro's - sorry to go off on a tangent - I would love to hear a song or two from you guys - Warioswoods sold me this game after reading his comments back on page one of this topic - so went out and landed £30 on it. Not unlocked all the songs yet but I must admit am having fun with this software. Cheers Guys - I put my Wii Number in my Sig. and have turned on song sharing - I think thats all you have to do?

Hooray, welcome And yes, that should be all you need to do--well, that and add each person's code in the usual way on the main Wii menu. Once you and a friend are confirmed on the Wii's message board, it will then usually take a little while longer (sometimes a day) for Wii Music to recognize it, at which point it will let you know that you are able to share now with an alert on the main menu. I'll add your code later on today when I'm back at my place.

I never knew so many people enjoyed this game...I guess...No I'm not sure how so many people enjoy the game actually... I for one think the game is average.
