In 2006, during an aborted reunion attempt with my former bandmates (minus one since our guitarist died in a car accident November 1994), following a couple of live appearances as Joyriders I was offered the chance of overdubbing banjo and fiddle on a dance arrangement of a famous old time song. A friend of my fellow banjo and harmonica player had his home studio set with synthesizers, computer, loop station and software tailored for producing disco music, dance floor, stuff like that. The chosen tune was part of a project soon to be released worldwide on CD, or at least this is what he was bragging at. My disappointment came as soon as I recognised the chorus modulation which is in fact my own work, the original arrangement I made in 2000 for Hard Trails' studio demo - he had literaly stolen it! Lacking any proper rig for recording acoustic music I played my 1890 violin and my former bandmate's archtop Pedro Martinez DX61 through a cheesy plastic, 'home karaoke grade' dynamic microphone. Subsequent looping and equalization rendered the tracks acceptable. To cut a long story short, following a subsequent copy-and-paste rework which further sliced the tracks I laid out, the whole project came to a standstill.
