... well, I was yesterday and came up with this little diddy...

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11588626

Used the CITY2 style. Comes with RD. Left bass & guitar in MIDI. Added Melodist: 1317 medley (Chorus).... really shines at the end, I think. Lead guitar are my arthritic fingers.

Just sharing, in case you want to get into a funk as well

Cheers,
Mike

Appreciate it, Tim .... takes about an hour to get those fingers going. Get through the piece, then rest and back to the pain...

Got to love getting older LOL!

Thanks, Tim!

I can sort of relate.

Getting arthritis in the thumb of my left hand.
Can only play the guitar these days for a short while and have to stop.
Luckily doesn't effect my keyboard playing yet though.

Yeah - keyboard is still okay with me as well... Guitar is becoming more and more difficult, though. Got to seize the moment while you still can, I guess.

Cheers,
Mike

Mike,

Hey, this is really nice. I like the energy. Ever since I heard Stevie Wonder's Superstition (way back in the day) I have been hooked on this kind of beat. I agree with Tim, not too shabby for arthritic fingers!

Thanks for sharing this one!

Steve

Hey Mike,

That's some pretty fine pickin dude! That lick you do at the end @ 3:46 is HOT!
I also listened to "Having Fun"... Some very nice acoustic stuff going on there. I'd love to jam with ya.
Anyway, great job.

Greg

Hi Mike,

I've got to say that this is a incredibly vibrant, energetic piece. Heaps of energy! It kept my interest all the way through. Very skillful playing, arranging and mixing. I'm amazed that this was done in a day!

Kudos to you!
Noel

Nice playing Mike arthritis and all. When I look at how productive you guys are I think I must have brain arthritis.

Nice work Mike. You sure know your way around that guitar! I liked the 'forward' energy in this.
