Excerpts from Folderol's message of 2010-09-08 23:24:11 +0200:
> Having re-discovered the guitar, I've been getting some practice in.
> I don't know what the style I like is called, but it consists of
> picking a sort of melody from the lower strings with the thumb, then
> using fingers over the other strings to play arpeggios.
> After much practice, I was able to get through a 4-5 minute 'song'
> without a break or significant mistake. Once I had that sorted I moved
> over to the synth and produced some backing and a couple of 'verses' of
> lead.
> When I put that up on one of the music collaboration websites, a friend
> very quickly came back with complementary guitar line, along with a
> very nice guitar lead for the middle verse, after which I was then able
> to work out and add a subdued (synth) bass line.
> And there it stayed for a while. I couldn't think of where to take it.
> I just knew it wasn't 'complete'. It also didn't have a title, and
> finding that turned out to be the catalyst, because as soon as he heard
> it my friend came back with lyrics, half sung half spoken.
> All that was needed was a bit of tidying up and here is our complete
> collaboration. I hope you like it.

Hi Will,
I like the vocals. It's one of the things us young folks can't do until
we're old folks too. No offense. :)
