    I compose/arrange a little. I haven't done any work for band in a long time, but might if the opportunity presented itself.

    For example...

    (BTW, this example is my arrangement of Bill Finegan's arrangement of Song of the Volga Boatmen, from Glenn Miller's Book of Orchestral Arranging, 1942.)

    I like yours as well. Nice bass line and rhythm guitar.

    The only way to improve your composing skills is to keep doing it.you learn from your mistakes.
