Very good, I enjoyed that. Have you been taking lyric writing lessons from mr Lurksalot? Very lurksalotesque lyrics. Doesn't quite have the same ring as kafkaesque but I think the term lurksalotesque may catch on. The dictionary will describe it as 'lark a little like lurksalot'.

It's looking like I won't be able to get one in this month. That will break a 19 month unbroken streak of entries :( I had an idea but sadly not the time to execute it, or even start it. I blame a brief period of going on a few dates (extremely rare for me). Maybe there's time at the weekend... maybe...

Excellent, and an apt, timely follow-on from my non-entry Waltz; the same characters a few decades later..! Thanks for that; I do like a nice coincidence now and again..!

I've just knocked something together. The question now is whether to try and put drums on it and make it worse. I suspect Len Goodman would dislocate his hip trying to dance to it, what with the alternating bars of 9 and 7, and the random odd 8 thrown in there. Despite that, I think it sounds quite romantic.
So: to drum or not to drum....?

Very 'hispanique en speed'..! A great improvement (at times, briefly, I even fancy it's almost listenable..!), well done. :i-m_so_happy:
On another note, I hope the fiddle did you some good, too. :mellow:

Now I've finally got some time for writing again, and have resolved to learn how my DAW and related things actually work, this looks like just the thing to get me doing something... well that's what I thought until I saw the July picture, which seemed very much not up my street. But, you don't learn if you don't try so I had a last minute change of heart and had a go anyway. Unfortunately it turned into a sort of strange latin rock blues thing half way through, but it's better than I expected :)

I'm not going to make the deadline; unfortunately preparing to rehearse with my new band has taken up most of my writing time this month. I have something started, but the post-rock tango is unlikely to be fit for human ears until after the voting has finished.

Not much to it, a bit of repetition but when time is against you...

I recently bought the Street Swarm Maschine expansion which is rather nice and gritty. I do like it. It provided the drums and the bass for this. I did feel bad about not playing my P bass on this to replace the Maschine bass but as I said, time was against me.

Yes, a lot of boleros! I played it to a mate, and he said it sounded like when you have 2 different youtube sessions playing at the same time :(
