With a production rate that would make even Toyota envious (I am of course refering to their famous Lean production business model), It’s so amazing that you can deliver so soulful arrangements again and again.

Thanks man, but I think Toyota have lost $15 billion this year. I’m trying to match them in brain cells.

That’s a very ambitious but fine goal you set for yourself. Keep us updated on the progress as long as you have the ability to communicate

Thanks Panu, I really should play the old thing more. Much too afraid to get it tuned though. Nearly 150 years old, the keys scalloped and bowed and I couldn’t evict my pet mouse who does his business somewhere around C2.

At first I cringed and thought at last the boys blown himself out and the craps starting!


Magnifecent lesson on how an out of tune piano can sound great!

that first line actually made me laugh out loud. :O

Glad you picked up on the out of tune bizzo. The hardest thing was tuning the bass to a piano that has played “roll out the barrels” for 5 generations and was last tuned in 1971 according to the drivers logbook.

Nevermind all the caveats — what a nice feel. I so enjoyed listening.

I guess its Caveat emptor. Thats why I like this free music trip called ccM - you can’t ask for your money back.

Cripes, Scombers, this is brill. It’s quirky and unexpected, keeping you listening, and the way you build it up is really exciting. You’re not just a pretty face.

Thanks Cig, I don’t mind quirky and unexpected. Exciting build up?
The most difficult part was avoiding premature chorus blow out while ploughing through the cliches.
Glad you liked it:-)

Yeah, exciting build up. Want to make something of it? I hear it in an inexorable, Harrison Birtwistle kind of way. But it definitely builds. I’m not a nutter, Scombs. Well … maybe a bit …

Oh it certainly is a bit cheesy, but it is MY kind of cheese! (Especially the mee…may…ray…so in the bass :’ ) I’m a sucker for this type of ballad. I’m actually really feeling the melody, and trying to see if I can get a non-harmony version of that track.
