Most of the time wishing I had more time to mess around with my musical 'toys'.

I'm basically a tech trying to be artsy and happy to keep learning all the time even at my age.

Hi, Stanford. "I Need a Love" is a very good tune with the atmospheric sounds of Simple Minds that I really enjoy. Your thoughtful lyrics wander and search for life's meanings. That's understandable when a beloved companion and pet dies. I had that happen earlier this summer with the loss of our cat, Ulan, and it has been heartbreaking. You were a tech? In what field? I was the geeky graphic designer at the Dept. of Transportation, building computers and writing web pages. It's one of those things where I would have liked to paint, write music, draw cartoons, but life got in the way with having to make a living. Equality has been a theme of my life, too, as in your song, "Promised Land." I enjoyed listening to your songs and seeing the meaning behind them. John

Thanks John. I love Simple Minds, so I'm happy to be compared to them, I find more space in their songs than mine and their production is generally top notch.. but I'm still learning! I am going to rework Promised Land, I think it has some good parts and ideas but at the least the chorus is poor. I feel I've taken another step forward with 'I need a love', especially with the arrangement. I still am a tech: Software developer, so I'm just as happy plugging in a new synth sound as I am rocking my guitar love and as you say a keen hobbyist in this and other more fundamentally 'creative' outlets than the day job. (Including Games dev).

Yes, losing my cat, younger than was rightful, was a hard hit. I can see you are also a cat lover! I am still taking time out before taking in another.

Thanks for your comments, Stanford.

Thanks for the nice review of my song "Cowboy Shuffle" (Instrumental Edit). That's taken from my song "Cowboy" that has full male vocal and harmonies, so feel free to check that out and see the story line that made the song originally!

Hi Bob I listened to the Cowboy song and it's great too. I still hear Shania Twain singing the melody and lyric I had in my ear when there was none! You played me all the way, like when my fiddles on fire it doesn't happen everyday. Yeah I don't know where that came from either just the music sounds real fun and saucy to me. All the best
