Being an insecure artist, though, makes me believe that Ian was talking about me when he wrote 'some of it should be left on the cutting room floor'. Of course, it was me he was talking about... it couldn't have been anyone else... now what am I going to do? Woe is me! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Mike, in my business, some of the best stuff is found on teh cutting room floor, otherwise where would all those blooper shows get their fodder? ;-) or loops? :lol:

Thanks for the feedback Tonto - I've listened to your recordings too - it's addictive huh! but great that you can do something so fun with your daughter...

I wish I'd gotten into music earlier - I guess I started fairly early - I was 13 when I first picked up my Mum's battered old classical guitar, some 15 years ago now, but if I'd started earlier I think I'd have learnt much better technique - kids pick things up so fast!

The drum track I have is actually the most simple thing - FAST programming... loop 12, multiply by 80! So there shouldn't really be any errors... The off notes are a result of a poor mp3 converting... shame, but I promise when I've remastered it I'll make a proper one!

By the way, what's the difference between a drum machine and a drummer?

You only have to beat the information into a drum machine once...

Good luck on your new hobby, I wait with baited breath your next creation!

Ian
Hey Ian...

It's no biggie, but your previous post got me wondering if I had mixed you up with another member (like I did with the blues work by Matbio...) anyway... I searched around and eventually found the nice things you said to us. They had a positive impact on me and especially my daughter.

Again... don't worry... I know I've been guilty of errors on this forum (probably more than I'm aware of... anyway I've noticed that like me.... you seem to be a "night owl"... staying up well past the hours we ought to have gone to sleep. Tired eyes and fingers (for typing) are normal symptoms of a mind that needs a good rest.

We look forward to more of your music, reviews and posts in general.

And.... as I think... I said to you once earlier... I'm glad we've got you here in this group! I'm guessing I make a few less errors during the day... after I've slept a good 8 hours. <==Unfortunately, that's not when I'm here the most!

Someone mentioned repetition in the posts so I'll propose Dishonest Discouragement as a fourth option. This is how it works... (and it's fun)

Riff - you stink at playing the guitar. Your voice sounds like a choir boy and your songs have no hooks. You should go techno or quit altogether with all that Froggy southern/classic rock rubbish.

KeyOfZ - you're the sloppiest guitar player up here, and did I mention slow?

Howard - the death metal is getting tiresome and why do you insist on NC17 lyrics?

Tony - you're very talented and I love all your music!!!

Rick - you're a very normal person.

See there? That was fun and easy! The best of both worlds. You get to be mean and nice - honest and dishonest all at once!
