This started with that discussion re midi only BIAB and merged with the Christmas song "challenge". I sat down on the 5th or 6th December and somehow I ended up with 440BIG1.sty from the folk song package from BIAB some years ago. Mixed with a couple of my own styles helpfully called strum3 and funky. The drums were a mix from Fruity Loops FPC (midi loop thingie). All instruments a mix of the ones in Fruity and the freebies in Proteus, kontakt and kore, Independence, etc. and me strumming. Mastered using the Classic freebies

Absolutely, positively perfect!

I loved it! Great lyrics and vox. Loved that chorus!
I NEVER RUN WITH SCISSORS. Actually those last two words were unnecessary.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

Now that is one charming kooky song that really deserves a listen. For those who like to follow along with lyrics, you will find them at the bottom of the page.

Thanks, that is a really nice comment.
I've been called quirky, amongst other unprintable things, but I much prefer kooky.

In fact it is perfect!

Certainly no weirder or kookier than some songs that have been huge hits over the Christmas period. Strange, but I really enjoyed it Alyn.
