1st attempt to "walk the walk." Was real quick & dirty - $30.00 USB mic into Windows Sound Recorder. The idea there was just to have a dead simple method of hitting "record" and capturing ideas before they drifted back into the fog. Just like the old cassette tape recorder. Anyways, it's a couple of different ideas I've had that seem to fit together...mehbe. Not my finest work ever. Banjo is stuffed - Mama & chillin be sleepin. Otherwise you'd likely hear them in the background :-) I'll work at better recorded sound, and apparently less thumb whackin'! Jeez, I never knew it was that prominent. (sorry) Lots to learn!!! So here I go, exposing myself & such. The "Everything" idea which is the 2nd theme, came to me the day after my mom passed this summer. There are words, but I am way not ready to share them just yet, and I'm not sure it works with the other themes. I got a spacey kinda trance thing, with a melancholy kinda thing, with a more hopeful, upbeat kinda thing. I guess I felt all those things in those difficult days last June. It's ideas in process. As they & I develop, I will endeavour to nurture them to fruition. Til then, here it is...Peace.

Man I would love to hear this all tracked out. This is really nice... I think you have a great ear for composition.

I agree that this has a great feel and movement. And I like the head-thwacking.

Great tune.. Very catchy.. I actually don't mind the thumb whackin' on this one.. It is very steady and adds to the feel.. Just my opinion :)
Keep on pickin'!
