First time fawmer who has sat on unfinished songs since he first picked up music. Here to dream up completely new material in as many flavors and genres as I can and see them through.

    Thanks so much for the nice comment... I've got three Tascams. I bought a 424mkII 4-track new in the 90's (still have it). When it broke I got a new one for cheap off EBay (before everyone wanted them). I eventually fixed the first one and then found the 488mkII 8-track on Craigslist three years ago for a really good deal. I highly recommend either of these - I love them. Both can record to four tracks at once and record at high speed with noise reduction so it's very clean and warm. 😀

    By the way, "A Path and a Log" was updated with vocals:

    Dig your music man. Any interest in a jammin with a local just let me know. I’m always down. Live over in AA.

    You and I are at 13 songs, so I’m going to break in here and say the world needs a 14th song from you!! Just some encouragement 😁

    Ben Folds Five!! yes. I also got a "video not available" and I also wanted to say hi to Cleveland (cat? That's awesome! A name that's a place, kinda like how I named my cat Capetown. That makes me feel better about myself. I've gotten lots of hmmm's at my naming choices apparently. But Capetown likes it! I think.. )

    Hey looks like you’ve got some great momentum going here! Three songs in four days is nothing if you’re in the groove, best of luck from another native Detroiter!

    I've had your second song on standby for the last hour, but am stuck in a WebEx meeting at work. Don't they understand what the REAL important things are?! 😁 Thank you for the very nice comments. I'm always glad to see other Michigan folks here and really loved your first song. I was super happy with the bass line especially, for Leelanau. That was the first thing I played when I was adding my bass - I love when that happens!!

    @elainedimasi Yes, that is the one! Home of the water tower, officially declared the "World's Most Phallic Building." It's hard to forget.
