Description
Please consider entering my music composition contest - with modest cash prize.

see http://center.soonlabel.com < /a> for details - or the MacJams forum here I've been posting regular updates.

The girls went out to shop for a purse. I stayed home and did this instead. Yes.. there is distortion in the vocals - in part intended - but the crackles were not. I'm learning that V-Vocal does not like a signal that is too hot. This is my 2nd tune using native instrument's Guitar Rig 4 - since I got the $99 upgrade (software only) through Cakewalk I gotta admit it is totally worth that price.

This tune came about in the weirdest way - I wanted to play my strat and almost used the amplifier (rare occasion!!) but decided on guitar rig because I was to lazy to use mics. Anyway - I set up session drummer to give me a beat and played the leads first which is very strange. And then I added rhythm guitar, bass, vocals, keys in that order. Since the leads were first I'm surprised it hangs together as well as it does. The leads did end up being sliced and diced in the end.

Break it down
Making music is often more fun than shopping for purses, or so I have found. There are a few problems with the mix, maybe a couple of misplaced guitar notes, the unlikely Kate Bush ending, but I must say, this haunts me. There's nothing as expressive as a guitar (except the voice). Great. That's some photo, by the way. You seem to be at ease in many genres. Looking forward to your next creation. You have a new fan.

Hi, vis-a-vis Kate Bush - are you referring to the didgeridoo? What is the problem with the mix as you see it? Thanks for listening and liking it!

Shine on,
Just as well they went out eh?
Laid back with that soulful playing of that strat.
Sweet sounding drums and cool bass on this, love the delayed ending that works too, it is all good mate.
