    on/in

    He plays the guitar in/on Tenco's performance of the song

    He is the guest star in/on this live album

    He co-operates giving his contribution as an author in/on the song

    He duets with Amii in/on the song



    I cannot see the difference between in/on used in these context so I cannot make a choice between the two.

    He is the guest star in/on this live album Either could be used, but "on an album" is better.

    He co-operates giving his contribution as an author in/on the song Not good English - "He co-operated by contributing to the song"/ "He co-operates as an author in writing the song"/ "His contribution was as co-author of the song".

    He duets with Amii in/on the song I would choose "in" - In this song he duets with Arnii



    I cannot see the difference between in/on used in these context so I cannot make a choice between the two.

    In both cases, "on".

    Re: on/in

    ...and before you ask. 'on this track'.

    And if, for example, half the tracks on a CD were recorded at one session and the other half at another, 'N played at the first session.'

    Re: on/in

    on a performance is not grammatical

    How about he plays the guitar in Tenco's performance of the song.

    In other words I need to convey the idea of him accompayining on the guitar Tenco in Tenco's performance of a song contained in a cd

    Thanks
