Noticed that a few days ago, G.  Been a while since we've seen him.  Hope to see him jump in here...

Well, how ya like them apples....Andy Social showed up. Good to see you, Andy 8)


March 22, 2018, 05:19:01 PM
The 99 cent one on a laptop, Neil.  Good for when you're on the trail and think of something...


March 22, 2018, 04:45:12 PM
Which DAW do you have in it is what I want to know..... :P


March 22, 2018, 04:28:40 PM
You get older and all that dust and weather just isn't as much fun on the trails anymore.  And I like not having to haul anything around.  Being licensed, we can just drive to wherever we want to trail ride - and go.

Once the new starter gets here, anyway...  :P


March 22, 2018, 04:23:08 PM
Ah.  Yeah, I know a few people with the Polaris Ranger, nice units.  Reason I really like the Tracker is fully enclosed, heat in the winter, AC in the summer, lots of room for stuff, and it's licensed so drive it anywhere anytime.


March 22, 2018, 02:35:04 PM
Oops, sorry, I meant Polaris Ranger. I did have a Ford Ranger years ago though. Clutch went out and I traded it for a new 2003Tundra. It's still my daily driver with 340,000 miles on it.


March 22, 2018, 02:17:02 PM
I'm sure there is, G, just give it some thought...  ;)


March 22, 2018, 07:09:31 AM
First time, though, that I've been called a pe pole...  
Guess there's now way to blame someone else for this, huh? :-[ ;D


March 22, 2018, 04:02:36 AM
I have a Ranger too, BD, but the clutch went out last year and I haven't fixed it yet.  Too many other things.  It is a good little work truck.  The F150 plow truck I got last fall is a good one too.  But the Tracker is a perfect trail buggy...


March 22, 2018, 03:54:04 AM
Ah, I see. I have a Ranger I use on my property for work and hunting.

An off-road vehicle for old pepole

And that too...  :P


March 22, 2018, 03:08:02 AM
We have dirt bikes, quads, 3 wheeler, golf carts, and a Kawasaki Mule.  But the Tracker is my favorite, because I set it up like a little home away from home...

Works in Progress / Album....
« on: February 07, 2018, 04:16:19 PM »
Thought I'd share a little of what I've been working on for the last 2 weeks. The song choices are the client's and I had to learn the songs (all but one) and attempt to interpret them to fit his style. My lead vocal will be replaced with his. So far he's happy in spite of some of the less than perfect bits.
This compilation is a bit of an exercise to see how my mixes/recordings compare from one tune to the next, and song placement on the album. Three more songs will be added yet.

Have yourself a listen, comment if you like.

Open DAW Challenge (the ODC) / May 17 Life Challenge
« on: May 07, 2017, 12:44:04 AM »
Life has turned upside down for us lately, causing us to contemplate the value of life and think about what it means to us. This will be the challenge for this month.

Starting now, part 1 of the challenge is write a new song about what life means to you.
Part 2  is change it up completely midway through. This change should not be subtle. This could be a change in lyrics, tempo, time signature,  key,  instrumentation,  but part 2 must be a cohesive part of 1. Make it make sense with each other.

Song length not to exceed 5 min.
Upload to the usual location by 29 May 2017.
No other restrictions.

Good luck!

Glad to get another one done. Seems SC messed with my track. Deal with that later...

Completed Original Songs / The Wolf
« on: December 05, 2016, 02:44:17 AM »
I'm calling it done....this is one I need to get out of my head. Too dark in there right now. Got some perfectly appropriate tracks from Dino to finish it off.

The Wolf

Wake up in the morning and something  don't feel right
Feel like  I've been running, running all night
Look in the mirror and all I see
Is a hungry wolf staring back at me
I don't know if I can win this fight 
I'm so tired of fighting for my life

Now I’m thinking all about the dream I had last night
Can’t get away from that gleam in his eye
Feel him breathing hot on my neck
He’s getting close but he ain't got me yet
I don't know if I can win this fight 
I'm so tired of fighting for my life

Works in Progress / Fishing
« on: November 21, 2016, 03:13:23 AM »
Well, my baby girl and her man love their song, and a bunch of the people they've shown off to.

There are obviously some thing that need fixing but I'm hoping to get some feedback from you guys on this so far.

Works in Progress / She's beautiful
« on: October 16, 2016, 02:51:41 AM »
Another w.i.p. Built this much today. Inspiration is my newly engaged granddaughter.

Works in Progress / Cold As Ice
« on: October 02, 2016, 06:58:32 PM »
In an effort to get myself a little motivated, I shook the dust off an old one that needed, and still does, a lot of work. A few hours of tweaking and rerecording got me this far. A small sense of accomplishment, I suppose. @Joom lyrics and the rest is me.

Comments welcome

Cheaters / Wicked Game

This Chris Isaak cheater is from '09. It's likely you could hear a version of it on my live performances soon.


Battle of the Bands / BOTB 2016 voting
« on: July 16, 2016, 03:18:42 PM »
BOTB 2016 has proven to be interesting for different reasons but we've made it through. Great big thanks to everyone participating. Sadly, real life circumstances eliminated one of our teams, so we're down to choosing a winner between only two.

The theme for this BOTB is "Still the same". Write a new song about whatever that means to you.

The poll will be running for 7 days. Any visitors, friends, or family wishing to vote can email to papagee1 (at) live.ca. BOTB 2016 in the subject header.

Wasn't a lot of action on the last one so I'll just get this going for 2016.
