I must clarify I was referring to the characters in the lyrics not Robert or I lol. My "Motley" days are long

Joanne, your harmonies are stellar as expected. I felt the guitar and main vocal go a little astray at different point along the way. Having read how you create your harmonies made this an even more interesting listen. Your voice is the Prix L'Amour in this track.

Hi Kent, The Alphabetical order is one issue, as you can see at the right column some Dates are presented with wrong fonts! On win BB the same folder looks fine on both columns and in Alphabetical Order! Thanks

Hello, Dani Another nice surf tune! Your vocals and harmonies are very pleasant. I agree with Alan. You really captured the essence of surfing music with this one!

Hello, Robert Very beautiful. Your vocal perfectly fits this tune. It is very nice and very natural to use the ordinary chord progression of D-Bm-G-A7, but using them shifting their bar lengths slightly. Enjoyed my listen a lot. Best regards. Shigeki Adachi

^ that is much better, thank you Kent. Small rant here: perhaps Mac Band has too many options doing somewhat the same thing. As i noted originally the " quick " rendering process as you called it does leave the user thinking that the programme has frozen and perhaps one should " force quit ". And so it seems that Mac Band needs some serious house cleaning by the Mac PG programmers.

Tano, I passed by Charlotte NC tonight. Thanks for your super kind words! Deryk, I'm very flattered- thanks so much for your kind support. I just listened to some Fourplay. I was unfamiliar with Bob James! He's definitely got a similar groove to Jeff Lorber who is of course behind the RealTrack. I feel like I'm hitting a creative stride, and it's fueled by folks like all of you taking the time to listen and send good vibes my way. Much appreciated! As always, if there's anyone out there who's in
