    Three more to go with the beginning of summer. Sorry this is a little late. We were in Maine planting tomatoes and just got back. The Alecia Keys song is nice and smooth, so we will see what @knh555 can do with his overdrive pedals on 11. Also @Omar has promised a sweet return. Jump in and add your alternate material if you feel the urge. Good jamming!

    Alan, This is totally awesome! Wonderful. I am going to try this one tomorrow. I'm certain it will be but a pale shadow of yours.

    I decided to just hit the record button on my first listen/play-through and came up with this.



    [EDIT] And this is the comment that appeared on this tune:

    Um. Yeah. This is a kicka$$ rap song for sure.

    You're too funny Monte. I love reading your track comments. The 'text' remark cracked me up. Nice take on the track nonetheless.

    This ballad was interesting. On the turn around the B must be diminished (maybe?). I kept trying to get it right. That B dim sits in the A minor chord scale but whenever I get to it it sounds weak.

    It looks like a great idea, but I couldn't get it to play.

    Edit: Once it was reproduced in my reply window, it played. It does sound great.

    Thank you that's a lovely compliment. But...just and old guy with a mic and no shame.



    Glad it was a brief glitch, thanks for giving it a listen.

    That's funny. We have a place up there and we hide out up there from mid June to late October. It is gorgeous and we have a big vegetable garden. But you gotta get them crops in before July :)

    It sounds like heaven. Enjoy your nice fat, red tomatoes . If you have any spare just send them over to me in Ireland! :D

    Sorry Chip, I forgot to say that I enjoyed the tracks that you loaded. Unfortunately, there was a problem with my internet connection while I was listening which interrupted the experience, but I did enjoy the more sophisticated sound.
