Here's a funny story, and if you're struggling with the ending of your collaboration take you'll want to read it.

I can't count while I play. As a result I also don't even try to count while I play. Fortunately, most of the time we're playing in 4/4 and so I don't need to count. However: I just bashed my head in for hours trying to figure out why I can't resolve the second half of this arrangement until two bars after the drums stop. Care to know the reason?

The arrangement is two bars short. The first two are drums-only and appear to be used for clicks/lead in/count-off/whatever you call it. The clicks are then followed by 16 bars of verse in what sounds like D, E, F#min and 16 measures feels just right in common time (4/4, 4/4, 4/4, 4/4 == 16). Those 16 bars are then followed by only 14 bars of chorus. Now, call me crazy, but I'm ready to end the melody either 2 bars early or 2 bars late.

Any recommendations?

Hey, cut ot the two bars with drums in the DAW, and You will be in time, then after the takes, just put them back again... :-) Or set the left locator to begin when the instruments join the drums....

that would leave 16 bars + 14 bars. Cutting the drums is what made the problem to begin with. If you don't realize the first two bars are drums, it's 32 measures. See how cutting the drums wouldn't help? I was already ignoring them correctly as a count-in, as you can hear in my take.
