Seeso, you officially rock. What Tabbing program do you use to write it out so cleanly?

Thanks Seeso. You are an amazing contributor here. I try to help out but I'll never be able to come close to the contributions that you make to this board.

just pushing this up with a message of encouragement!

I'm all excited to see how this all turns out-- How's everyone progressing? I'm working on getting the riff down, and, I'm thinking about sampling/mashing up my version a little :) Should be fun, hopefully it'll be good to listen to

I've got a short "proof of concept" cobbled together in Garageband already. Now I just have to flesh it out into a full song. :cool:

Urh…
A quite horrible, rough mix (http://www.mediafire.com/?tzojydyyrdw)
Two different uke tunings, three made-up instruments and voice. It's amazing how much reading one can get done in the time it takes to absentmindedly record several overdubs for a song.

I really think this Song of the Month thing is a fantastic idea. Really fine poaching and organising, Nut. :shaka:

Cash, your version is like all avant-garde 60's. It's awesome. Like Nico and the VU.

You've got to be kidding calling that rough, because it has such a smooth sound. It's really cool, I love it, all of it! Especially the overall Nico/zephyr/just-plain-cool atmosphere and the phrasing. It's settle-back-in-a-comfy-chair-and-go-"ahhhh" music. Refreshing, like a summer br... :)
