Thanks Rick, I'll contact him for some composing information. I basically started composing because I read somewhere if you really are serious about learning to play cg and want to improve, you need to start writing your own music/scores/pieces...and it's true. I've been looking at staffs and notes etc. and not really appreciating their function until I tried to write my own music. It's made a world of difference and has kept me interested in playing and studying music...like getting into the complete or whole music environment.

I've just started learning to quote and reduce the quote so let's see if it works.
Regards,
David

Bringing this post back. I discovered a podcast and web site, Art of Composing.com. What I like about it is the guy explains very simply just enough harmony, form etc for you to start composing. He has a free comp 101 course. And he is a go for it kind of guy, just quit his job to learn to be a composer for film, no PhD degree music, mostly self taught and very well read in the topic . Kind of inspiring.
Thanks Rick!
I'll check it out. I love that kind of stuff.
