    My car mechanic is a self-taught arranger. I asked him if all the answers were in the music, he said yeah. He works in pen and writes while listening to records. Says something about the level of musicality one needs to achieve to be a good musician...gotta really KNOW it, internally. I guess it starts off with know the ranges of the instruments you are writing for, and actually hearing it.
    Hard luck and trouble...

    hmmmm interesting...I've never heard of a car mechanic/musician..thats pretty cool. I kinda get what your saying about the ranges and timbre of the instruments. I was recently looking for a music composition for dummies book and found it at borders. So i'll probably get that. thanks for the comments guys
