Think I saved most of it.....a few music files missing or moved.....as far as I can tell the recording stuff is all there....but who knows till you go look for it to use it  :)
At this point, I definitely have much more than was lost....or could have been lost....so have to look on the bright side

You have my condolences CB. And a thank you for changing my mind though I've joined under a new name as you can see. Good that your father had his loved ones with him in passing. Very peaceful. Dave.


July 06, 2018, 02:40:11 AM
My condolences too, CB.  Slip out peacefully, surrounded by the ones you love, reminiscing about memories of life.  Celebrating life.  Sorry for your loss, bud.


July 03, 2018, 03:04:06 AM
My thoughts are with you too, Bob.  It's an awful experience to go through.  Stay strong.

Fun listen, Neil.  Hadn't heard that one in a few years.  Nice work all the way around...  ~:)

Thanks Joom!
Bet it made you want to dig out the old sheepskin vest and grow a beard.... ;)

Right, you 'orrible lot  :P

Since we're already creeping up on the fourth of July already, AND we have a BOTB going on, AND it's summer, AND people are up to their ears in real life..... it's time for a nice quick and easy ODC  ;D

Of course it's soooooo easy AND obvious.....

Summer..... how about you write us a nice upbeat summery song?

Think Bon Jovi's "99 in the shade"....think anything Beach Boys..... think Zac Brown "Toes In The Sand"......think about something you'd blast on the beach....some kind of beachy, party, summery song  ;D

Gotta be light and bopping...... no serious stuff....got to be FUN!!!

Bonus turnips for mentioning beer!!

Any style (even country :P ), any length, any method (loops, samples, John Deere parts, power tools....)....instrumentals welcome.... in fact nothing says beach party more than something you'd hear in an Ibiza nightclub....

Must be new track starting ......NOW......and must be posted to the SC account by 11.59PM 27th July 2018.

If you don't get one in...you will automatically be volunteered for tallyman duty......voting should commence July 28th and close July 31st if we can.....

Let's go!!!!

Evening folks  8)

The votes have been cast and the results tabulated.

The people have made their choices known.

So on to the results....

In reverse order.....we have a tie for second place.... Rk and Red Joker!!!!

Which leaves me as this month's winner.....  ::)

I'm really not sure about you lot...honestly.... I thought the other two were miles ahead.... much more inventive and interesting....

Then again...Justin Beiber and One Direction have sold a hell of a lot of records...so there's no accounting for taste lol

Anyway...you voted the way you did, so I guess it's true (even after several recounts to make sure)....

Yay me!! lol

Nice easy one for this month....promise  ;D

Voting is officially closed :P Only 12 1/2 hours late :P

Been a hell of a day lol

votes rec'd from:
Me, Joom, Redjoker, Bonedigger, Buster, Smurf, Pat, Cottonwood, Way2lon, Rk, Dino and PapaG....

Nice one Bri :)
I've never heard that one before (I don't think...), but I really enjoyed it.....well done!

Rock / Down The Highway? Let It Roll, then....
« on: July 03, 2018, 02:45:06 AM »
Hello boys and girls  ;D

Doing this one is almost like messing with the Star Spangled Banner, at least to Canadians :P
Luckily, I'm not one of them :P so I did it anyway......

It's a good old fashioned rocker from the 70's when men wore heels and big hairy jackets and beards were Beards with a capital B.......

This one was recorded using ONLY the Blue Bastard, including the solo....  :o
The action that high up the neck is REALLY high...better do something about that sometime....

All other usual suspects were present and correct :)
MP3 version attached below for those of that persuasion....

Enjoy some BTO people...... lava lamps and bright green shag pile carpet not included  ;D

Voting Update: Votes received from Me, Joom, Redjoker, Bonedigger, Buster, Smurf, Pat, Cottonwood and Way2lon.....

Still need an entrant vote from Rk, and anyone else who wants to vote....

Deadline is officially 7am tomorrow morning my time... or 13 hours from now....
However, I won't close voting till we get Rk's......or a reasonable amount of time has passed.....

Votes in from me, RedJoker, Joom and Bonedigga.....

Since no one else has bitten the bullet, in the interest of moving on I'll get the voting going :D

The Challenge was thus:

"Write a new song about a (somewhat) devastating personal catastrophe and how you overcame it. Put a positive spin on it, the silver lining. If your life has been uneventful in that way, I guess you'll have to write a fictional piece.

Also, your song must include two key changes. These changes must be 3 semitones each and cannot revert to the original key. Example, if the songs starts in the key of G, your next change would be Bb and then C#. Minimum limit for each key change will be 16 measures. No time limit on the song and loops, samples, collabs, instrumentals are not restricted. "

So....since I'm an entrant I do have to vote myself last anyway.....and I've listened and made my choice already....

Here are the entrants for cutting and pasting:

Red Joker - Weekend Racer
Rk - This Is A Test
Neilmac - Rise Above It

And for your listening pleasure, the playlist:

Votes in order of preference, 1-3, to my PM or email at neilmac2006 at gmail dot com.....

Closing Date will be 7am Central Time Tuesday July 3rd 2018.....

Get to it!

The word “challenge” is pretty self explanatory lol
You can’t call it a Challenge if it’s not a challenge......

It’s up to the individual whether they have fun or not......  8)
