    REAL good--loved that conga drum track. Now for a question----how in the world do you keep coming up with your arrangements? That is something I just can't do-but sure wish I could.

    Thanks for listening Dave,
    Don't sell yourself short, I've hear many of your songs and they all have good arrangements.

    For me, it usually starts in one of three ways:
    - I want to convey a story or an idea and then, I decide what emotion fits the story.
    Scribble out a few lyrics and pick up the guitar to find a rhythm pattern and build from there.
    -I've got a riff in my head and look for chord progression to support it.
    -I get inspiration from something I've heard and try to build a song in that general direction.

    Often, I'm frustrated that I'm not a better musician because, my ideas are larger than my ability to play or sing them.

    Very nice Moto! Hypnotic groove. :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: Your voice (in this anyway) is getting more of that Neil Young type of appeal, natural sounding delivery, right on!!! :Beer::thumbup::Beer:

    Thanks Mike,
    Good or bad, I seems I am developing a style.
    Glad a few people like some of my stuff.

    I'm sure that new guitar will be inspiring some new songs soon (y)

    I thought it had a bit of a Riders in the Storm vibe , anyone who can get that is OK in my book. New guitar is awesome Capn.
    I think my wife thinks its been attached to me like some sort of extra limb:Beer:

    Thanks for listening.
    Linda Ronstadt was busy the day I recorded :(, I had to do the vocals myself.

    Have to agree with all that has been said. Like Mike, I think your mixing skills have come on 'Leaps & Bounds' in your recent creations. There's something very comfortable in the grooves of your songs, that make me want to pickup my guitar and play along. Very nice Moto.(y)(y)

    Very nice. The vocal is a bit knopfler-esque, if he was in a blues mode. Way to go.
