Another month without my Doom array! But I do see my Joshua Bell Violin all over this one as well as some choirs and mystical voices. Great pic!

Not sure which book this is an illustration from, but guessing that the illustrator could be a Tarrant and therefore might have been a great Grandmother to a presenter of 'Tis Was', which was pretty wacky..... then I reckon anything goes !!

Sorry, Dad. I edited your post instead of quoting it. Sorry if it fails to inspire.

S'not your fault, nor the picture, it's just personal stuff right now. It's a good distraction, though, so I'm game for an attempt, at least. You never know, I might get higher than third this time..! :rolleyes:

Well, just how lucky can you get..? Just when a picture comes along for which I had, for many reasons, no particular inspiration, I chanced upon the very source I needed, and no farther afield than at the end of my own garden..! Out early, thinking to do a little light weeding, I thought I caught, out of the corner of my eye, a furtive movement in the hedgerow. Hardly daring to breath, I carefully took out my portable recording device (one never knows when an opportunity will strike, and struck it had indeed..!) and managed to capture the antics of this dainty creature, unaware of my presence..! She had fashioned a swing from the branches of our old apple tree, and, singing gently to herself, began to rock to and fro, higher and higher, faster and faster. Too much, though, for the poor old tree, which, despite the slight weight of the mere slip of an elf, gave audible signs of discomfort. Hearing this complaint, the swinging slowed and came to a halt. The moment was ended; the creature vanished. All that was left was the continued chirping and warbling of the wildlife in the vicinity, and the low rush of the morning breeze. I scurried back to my 'pica-studio' to listen eagerly to the sounds captured; here they are...

Well as Bilbo wanted Rock & Funk, I thought I'd give it a go. This is no calm rocking back & forth, it's giving it yeehaah! Ends up a bit more fusion, but I've tried to keep it rocking & funky. Wasn't easy to play, but I enjoyed it. :)

Mine's a little ambitious. Which means it's gonna sound awful without a lot of work but it may sound good after it.

I've got a rough mix done today. I will be looking at getting someone to add piano and organ before I publish, just in case it sounds better than the acoustic guitar and tremolo electric respectively. At least I'll contribute this month! I've even got a title, one for all you francophiles out there, its Absinthe (please, no "makes the heart grow fonder" jokes!)

It's the absence of the apostrophe which is more worrying. :mellow:

That's what lack of oxygen to the brain does. I posted just after playing squash.
I beat my boss 3-0, so I guess that's another year without a pay rise :(
