Thank you both!

Bob - yes, I wrote it and I am the only one on the song. Amazing what you can do with synthesizers and software. But I have to confess that I miss being in a band.

Another one, country this time (my REAL roots) - I keep trying to improve my mixing ability.

Sorry the video is so similar to the last one - still learning how to do that.

Ah, thank you.

But without a band I'm afraid I'd put on a pretty lame show (I actually was pretty lame WITH the band but the rest carried me.)

Instead of putting on a 'show' how about a cameo appearance at a party? Maybe do a few songs, some soft shoe and a few jokes? I dunno, I think it would be fun to have you as a special guest. We've done this with other budding entertainers and with a fixed price plus a hat pass things worked out quite well for everyone.

Everyone here is so kind and supportive, thank you.

Since I am showing off - here's a clip my daughter posted recently. Like me, she does all the parts herself (but unlike me, she has actual talent!) This isn't an original (she DOES write but so far has kept her compositions off the internet.)

Yes, I am very proud of her.

You've reminded me...

Do you know what perfect pitch is?

That's when you get the banjo into the dumpster with one throw.

(Sorry to any banjo fans!)

I've known Axixic for almost 50 years, & will play music with him anytime. Just need to complete the migration to warmer climates, which is in the works. Worked with Ian Tyson............let's go a different direction, hmmm? Amos Garret is in Edmonton, last I heard. Hopefully Axixic can expand on his musical horizons, & I'll be able to contribute.
Take care, all, looking to move closer very soon!

I always thought perfect pitch was the fiddle & the banjo joining the accordion in the dumpster..............
