In the seven years I've been a member here, I've never noticed a blog facility on your home page.
I wonder if anyone will read this?
Any way if anyone has anything interesting to say about anything list it here.....

Something I was working on around a year ago - never got to do a melody or vox. It's not tight as I would have hoped, but it is a real challenging piece to play - need to practice a lot to get it how I would have liked it to sound.
Thought I'd upload it anyway seeing the AMP is up and running again.
I recorded it on my first used MacPro 3.1 using LogicPro DAW and their built in Drum Machine. The Drums need a lot of work, I used this feature on the software that works out a beats/rhythm according to the music. Oh yeah my Mac may be 9 years old, but it has never failed on me, no viruses and it's pretty quick too, having upgraded the HDD to a SSD and 32GB of RAM. I'm never going back to Windows.

I'm not recording anything at the moment, been too busy with looking after my family - We lost Mum in March, she was 87.  She did not suffer thank God. Now looking after my Dad in my spare time, hence my Mum did everything, that being of old fashioned Turkish Values.

Nice to see the AMP ALIVE again  I honestly thought it was just matter of time when Mud was going to pull the plug.

Bless your all.

It's been too long since I created something new - 18 months.
This may sound easy, but the fingering is tricky.
Recorded this with logic pro x for the first time - it is very sensitive, it was picking up noise from the fan on my mac and the street, so much so had to use adobe audition noise reduction.  I think I will go back to Cubase, but I'll have to buy the latest version as Cubase 5 is not supported on the mac os I'm on

Those of you who are taking part in the above thread or want to take part need to get their cameras rolling NOW!
PX has sent me his shoot and recording, I need you all to get your fingers out and do this! come on all you need to do is set a date to shoot it and then practice - you don't need more than a week,  if me and PX can do it so can you.
So what do you say, don't chicken out or come up with pathetic excuses, bite your lip, get your head down and give it your best shot!
