Wow...  Really like the song, man.  Thank you so much for sharing.

Hey, if you're interested, I liked this so much, I'd love to give it a try
recording acoustic drums with it...  (I run a recording studio based
entirely off Linux, and have been drumming for 20 years).  If you wouldn't
mind, could I get a copy of the tracks, to mess around with it?  *Great*
vocals, man.  Just great.  Loved it.

Let me know.
