In case anyone was wondering, since I was let go by Nokia I've been:

- looking for a job (naturally)

- working on my first self-produced amateur music album

The latter is a labor of love and keeps me in project mode, something I desperately need. Anyway I thought I'd share one song I've been working on, a blue grass number. My voice isn't what it used to be and I need to fix some spots but just for fun, here you go:

http://www.cynicalsigns.com/projects...0to%20Home.mp3

The album is mainly progressive country/country rock with a few traditional numbers. I hope to have it done by December.

yeehaw!

EDIT: more songs added later in this thread.

A compliment, for sure. Walden is one of my favorite blue grass performers. We hug out together in the 60's.

Ah, cool. And I was joking anyway.

I may change part of the lyrics, and I definitely need to touch up the vocals on this one, but it's almost done.

Music was great. I don't listen to bluegrass music, but the vocals sounded like there was way too much echo or reverb. But really good music! Did you play all the instruments? Do you (guys) have a web page?

(I play "Progressive" Rock, so I am no expert)

Thanks. I agree, I need to turn the 'verb down a hair. Still playing around with vocals.

All instruments on this come from a Band in a Box project (my composition) using their RealTracks and audio later mixed in Cakewalk Sonar. Vocals were added using a Peavey PVM22 dynamic mike running through an Art Tube MP preamp.

I'm still working on the web part. Basically it's me (as songwriter) and various vocalists (wait until you hear the young lady who will be singing on at least one number) and possibly some authentic original instrumentals if I can get my guitar-playing buddy off his butt.
