This is a bit different for me.  After I wrote the chord seqences and form I enterd them into Band-In-A-Box and selected a rhythm style.  The changes sounded good alone without a set melody.  I then found a solo style and instrument that produced a  result I liked.   I passed the whole thing through my sequencer program (Voyetra Midi Orchestrator) for editing and here is the result.

I would appreciate hearing any comments (positive or negative).



12/01/02 - Small revisions made.   Probably more to come.  This is a W.I.P.

12/04/02 - More revisions, form  (with added solo line), bass line, some voicings.  Probably last revision, although may do some more work on keyboard and guitar voicings if  I get ambitious.
