Yeah, that would be a good idea. If I do another round with this song I'll
probably work on the drums.
Actually I have been experimenting a lot with dynamics to make the drums more
Not that I'm particularily satisfied with those drums... I'm not good enough
to make it swing yet... (or lack of patience... I'm the Ed Wood of recording
With Undecided I started with a very basic beat and I didn't change it much
since it worked very well. (Much to my surprise)

Hehe, I guess that was part of the plan ;) Though I was aiming for a more
electronic beat for the intro... for some reason I changed it.
> Well done.
Thanks :) Makes me wanna record more!
