Good work mate. As you know I have comented on Twitter too.

I have always liked the thought of playing guitar, and did too a million years ago. I like the thought of strumming away on a Black and Gold Les Paul, playing the blues. Yeah, that would be nice, but way beyond my ability.

I am on a journey of discovery on another instrument, (well sort of), and that is recording software and hardware. I continual journey of investment and mal-investment. I am now approaching a point of being OK / pretty good at it, and OK / pretty good sounds.

I know what I don't know so soon will be time to sit down with a mentor and learn the finer principles!!

Good for you! I learned, at least passingly, a 36 channel mixing board. All those knobs and slides are pretty daunting, but it's really fun......until something goes horribly wrong and you have to figure out how to fix it. Sad

If I'd known you were French, I'd have worn galoshes...

Yes its like the flight deck of the Enterprise. I sit there dumbfounded having pressed "play" and there is no sound. Then I realise I haven't switched the speakers on, or bussed the track(s) to the monitor section. Getting there slowly though!! I am digital of course, so the "desk" and "channel strips" are seen from a computer screen and adjusted via a mouse.

One of the songs I've been working on lately. A bass cover of Type O Negative's Anesthesia.

RE: New instrument journey
I'm starting to play around with this cover of the old Roky Erikson song "If You Have Ghosts" by the band Ghost. Hopefully I will have it worked out in a couple of weeks....

Not the song I've started working on, but one I enjoy jamming out to.

Very cool! I am not familiar with the tune and that heavily processed bass tone is new to me...but I like it. I like the way you get lots of motion out of the sustained notes.
