Description
First of all...I by no means was, trying to change this neat song. I liked it so much that I grabbed it from my desktop to try and learn how to make a loop. Thought the mandolin would be good for that. So of course I got to tinkering with it and never actually made a loop but, I sure made a mess of Richard's song. Anyhow Richard, thanks for letting me chop it up and have a little fun. Hope you aren't mad! I used a warm weather bunny but the ground's still hard. Thanks again.

Well at least
You're not PO'd....i hope. I was really disappointed in the sound difference after
the upload. There are no loops other than your stringed instrument so if you decide to do something to it I can break it down however you like, or at least
send you the original mp3. Thanks again for letting me have a little fun.

many flavored
This has a cool sound! Flowing strings and acoustic, to celtic to rock Very creative use of loops to add to Richard's great composition.

Roxy, thanks
for giving this thing a listen and leaving your kind words. I did the string intro thing because its the only way I knew to introduce Richard's melodic flute line without doing another rude butt splice.

Thanks again Roxy

Sweet ...

.. not heard the original .. this version is very catchy, in a Fat Boy Slim "Praise you" meets miami vice kinda way.

The synths works very well with the mandolin.

Just needs vocals- Richard is an excellent singer.
