I am married with two teenagers. I attended college for 3.5 years as a

My general approach for background/accompaniment MIDIs is

1) Use a brief Intro
2) Keep the melody out front, but the accompaniment interesting enough to support it.  Descants, countermelodies and a variety of instruments are fun!
3) Have sufficient repeats to cover all verses.  OK to use an occasional, brief interlude between verses.
4) When appropriate, repeat the chorus at the end.
5) A simple ending after the last verse/chorus helps wrap things up...

Yes, it's a very basic approach, but these MIDIs serve well as backgrounds on our web sites, and as accompaniment in group singing around the world.  They are also popping up all around the Internet!

Other types of arrangements of our songs are encouraged (classical, jazz, SATB), and each finds its place in our web sites.
