As there is no sync code I used a portion of the song for syncing purposes. I notice that you use Sonar, I also use Sonar. Out of interest - What was the tempo when you recorded your parts?

William, that sounds fantastic - I'm sure it will sound great when mixed into the track. Can I ask you a question (not related to this project)? On a track like this are you playing full chords with the left hand along? It sounds to me like maybe you're not - perhaps just single notes on the left hand? I tinker with playing Hammond organ on certain tracks of mine but I find it often sounds too full and too congested if I play full left hand chords along with the melody line too.

Hello Bagpipe, Indeed. For a project like this it's pretty pointless to play the full chord. It will clash with rhythm guitars and the bass and give the person mixing the song a real headache (literally). I tend to play 3 or 2 notes from middle or top end with just enough percussion to cut through. A song like this needs only a minimum of melodic phrasing as there are sax and pedal-steel harmonies and not to mention the vocal itself. However, playing live is a different ball game. You actually benefit from the whole chord as it gives a fuller sound. Jimmy Smith is the guv'nor.
