Kind of a different catagory for me. Used one of my piano lounge tracks on a Ninetendo commercial. I think it has something to do with a women's mystery, but not 100% sure. Hope I see/ hear it on TV.

Congratulations John. I never really went after TV/commercial market, though I did get a few placements, but I write a lot in gospel music so I don't see a big demand for that kind of music on TV shows. I concentrate on churches through out the world by registering my songs through CCLI. So far I am pleased with the use my songs are getting, seeing they have over seven million songs on file for churches to choose from. I've registered about 1800 songs with them and each statement I get from them increases in value. The money is nice but knowing I could be touching souls for God through my music is even better.

Thanks Everitt! Well, TV/ film uses all kinds of music. They used my version of Amazing Grace on The Voice. I've had several other Christian hymns that were used.

Best, John smile

Nice John, what makes no sense to me, is a show like the voice has all these musicians and singers, lol, cant they come up with their own track? lol John Legend or Adam Levine have written so many songs that have been hits already, youd think they could come up with a version of Amazing Grace.

But good for you they dont!

Thanks Fde! Funny about the "Amazing Grace" rendition. I re-composed it 3-4 times to Niteshift's (Geoff) specifications. He kept telling me it wasn't quite there yet. laugh

I don't think so Craig. It's a slow, romantic lounge piano track.

Thanks, John smile

Yes, that bop bop baba bop was maybe a step up from chopsticks. Not the elegant sound you create. Hope someone hears it! If I do, Iíll certainly report in! smile
