What songs would be could for a turn-based or real-time strategy game? I have already written a few, but am looking for others. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any suggestions. Sean Callaway smcallaway@hotmail.com

I''ve always thought a good classical waltz fits that genre of gaming quite well. I have written a few waltzes I enjoy listening to. It initiates the perfect mind set going into the game and offers tranquility and focus.

What genre of strategy is it, HOMM era, C&C era, what. Because a good classical waltz in the middle of a tank battle could be rather disturbing. Si??

What Bob says is true, let me add to that. I should be more specific, what I like to hear is thinking man''s music, like a waltz, while I''m planning a strategy...THEN when battle ensues, bring on the uptempo war march to help initiate the feeling of urgency and excitement associated with the action. If timed right, it works pretty well. Sound right? pun intended.
