    March Composition Challenge - GET WRITING

    A touch modest with that 'something'; it's got a nice 'Cranberries meet Mark Knopfler' feel to it. Good guitar work. OK, the singing voice is what it is, but Dylan didn't do badly with his, and as for Neil Young... Well done; a worthy entry.

    That's not a Chestnut, It's a Larch. ... OK, I'll correct it, but it makes a nonsense of your post. Serves you right.

    March Composition Challenge - GET WRITING

    Here is my contribution to the March 2019 Basschat Composition Challenge, inspired by a picture chosen by the previous winner: Bleat. A long flight, all sorts of stuff goes around in one's head; this is but part of it (thankfully..!) All Vst's or free-to-use samples, all programmed by myself. Drums: Superior Drums 2. Guitars, baritone sax: Vst instruments. Sweet voices: Blue. The voyageur and BV's: samples. A fair amount of treatment required, to (try to...) get the samples to sing in the key required, at the right speed, plus a hefty dose of various reverbs, delays, EQ and compression, on individual tracks and Master buses. Yes, I know, 'Less is more', but in this case, it was 'More is required'. Sorry. Thanks for listening, if you already have; if you're about to, enjoy.

    Depressing things your bandmates say.

    Just stating facts, s'all. And I can't remember what I had for breakfast last Sunday, so four and a half years... Peace. Edit: I'm minded of a delightful anecdote from John Aubrey's 'Brief Lives' concerning memory... 'This Earle of Oxford, making of his low obeisance to Queen Elizabeth, happened to let a Fart, at which he was so abashed and ashamed that he went to Travell, 7 yeares. On his returne the Queen welcomed him home, and sayd, My Lord, I had forgott the Fart.'

    Depressing things your bandmates say.

    ... which begs the retort: 'A refusal's a refusal'.
