Attach your file to your email and mail it to...

mark your work in the following way.

your period, last name,first name, project

example p2 booth,douglas,song#3

always use p2 or p3 or whatever you period is. Do not use "period 3" but instead " p3" and leave a space after the number. That way it will drop in a period folder for me and the TA.

work on a new song

Starting with the drum track. Create a groove in 4/4 time. kick should be on 1 and 3 and the snare on 3 and 4. You can do this via garageband or aviary. You can do more with the kick and the snare but the basic feel should be rock. I want to hear the back beat.
