I assume everybody knows that once you click play on CB's video that you can scroll to the right and click the full screen icon to watch it in full screen mode...

I played 3 shows in December with a band I was in in the 80's-90's. I put together a short video of footage my son took on his iPhone:

Spent the day on computers at a couple hotels, and now have to head to the neighbors to fix their WiFi.  I charge businesses, but I help all the local people for nothing.  They seem to like that...

Music Banter is two years older than us, and KAE is a year or two older.

And when I said "music website" below, I meant "music forums"...

I wondered if we might be the oldest music website still around, so I checked.  We're not the oldest, but we're one of the oldest.

Very, very nice Kev. Really enjoyed it. Wish I could stay in toon like that, although I get away with it - or rather, used to.

Thanks everyone.  :)

I would like to thank YOU for such a soul-stirring and stunning music. I love it a lot. By the way, your other compositions are also great and I tend to listen to them whenever I'm in some not-so-good mood and they never fail to cheer me up!

I already commented on this, but just had another listen and realised how good it really is. Your arranging is wonderful, your singing, one of the first things I noticed, was SO in tune - and the balance of it all is... just  so; lilting and uplifting. every instrument and what it is doing can be heard, so clearly. In short, I just loved it - all over again. Well done you, Kev Smith.
Take care,
Bri

Thanks all, really appreciate the kind words.  I can't take too much credit for the arrangement - I used a pre-existing midi file, but used more interesting VSTi's to make it sound a little more organic.  From memory, for the guitar parts I used an Orchestral Harp sound.  Did need a bit of EQ to clear it up a bit, but I was happy with how the instrumental side of it turned out with the amended instrument sounds.  Less so with the vocal, but it was as good as I was able to get it lol.
