    that would be my wife while I try to come to grips with my timing, Studio One and EZdrummer2.

    That was really fun that you guys played over the last one I put up so, I loaded up 12 and a half minutes - once again, if you are "hitting a sweet spot" enjoy it, lots of room. It's a 12 bar pattern, once you have it, you have it.

    This would be the same garage band as last time, "Elwood and the Elbows". This time it's 'ol EZ money, the jazz bass, a gs mini, and a thinline (aka: "skinny and mini").

    Ignore the warts and crank it up!

    Nicely done track, sir!
    I won't grab first dibs on this, but I admit I took your first sentence about coming to grips with timing quite literally and played over the entire track doing nothing but quarter note triplets. It was neither melodic, nor enjoyable to listen to, but it's a hell of a lot of fun to take a track like this and try something off the wall (even if it sounds like crap [my playing, that is]).
    I might come back to this (without continuing 1/4 trips) after some others have the opportunity to sample your fine homegrown brew!

    Thanks Papa! I subbed in a slightly louder copy of the same thing. I realized what I posted was a little quiet.

    Sorry about that Arty. I should have realized a count in was useful and included one, duly noted. :Beer:

    Regardless, you started it off in fine style! :thumbup: I'm sure your LP was happy to get more attention. (y)

    ***RECORDING***

    I took a minor diversion on the first 12 and then brought it back up for the second 12.
    1:37 - 2:16.

    I knew I should have started this out. This is a tough group to follow!

    Well, here I go.

    I feel a bit like a bull in a china shop with this one. I may have been a bit dark and heavy handed after TZ's fine work. Anyhow, I'm in from about 2:17 through about 3:15 or so.

    Papa, Nice, classic rock metaphor stuff :thumbup: mixed with your imagination and tech wizardry, very cool.:cool: Not "dark and heavy handed" just a different solution to the puzzle. :Beer:

    Marv you kept it right up on the toes, good fun stuff!!! (y) I didn't hear you "trying" to do much, well done!!! :Beer::Beer:

    YES!!!! :D:D:D



    Not much compared to Moto Tracks, :notworthy::notworthy::notworthy: but having fun doing it!!! :D

    @ Paleo, You had to name your Jurassic whoopee cushion (the one with the irregular skin pattern) Brad? :sneaky:

    What are you playing Mike? You got a nice Chuck Berry (goosed up a bit) tone going there!:cool: Rock and roll!! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    There is lots of meat on the bone, no worry. :Beer: If this gets used up that much I'll see if I can learn how to put it back, all we lost is a few turns around the block and a fade out. :)

    Sounding good, Mike!

    Looks like it was Paparaptor's entry.

    I merged Mike's track with the missing piece from TZ's. Everything seems to be back.
    Let me know if anything seems amiss.

    The Widow in A, more better now.
