There might be some truth to that, Roberto is getting married soon he
told me, that might take up quite a chunk of his time I imagine ;)
And congratulations again Roberto! \\//

Oh, you didn't? I am though and has been for a very long time. :)

Not sure what you mean with it being wrong, I do work with MusE (and
develop to some extent) but I am a guitarist, I don't think musically
like a keyboard player, that's what I believe anyway.

It is really a very dirty sound but it works very well in that song.

Phew, thanks :)

Indeed, it's good to get different perspectives, we all try to make
music but the approach varies enormously.
