Rocking Auld Syne - My rocking New Years greet to you all. Based on a very old midi file I found years ago, just like last year, but now it's rock instead of Big Band. I then "messed" with it quite a bit to try make it sound the best I could. In order to make it 'eligible' for sharing here, I threw a couple of PG's VSTi (Bright Piano & Electric Bass) in the mix - Enjoy!

p.s. Now crank this beast up and let's rock this crappy piece of a year into oblivion!! cool

I can't in all honesty take any credit for the conceptual work in this one (nor the performance, for that matter), for as it says in my outline, that was all already there in the midi file. All I did was apply instrument sources and remix accordingly for recording, but I'm glad you liked the outcome nevertheless.

Well, it's hardly going to be worse than the year that just left, you know. But I appreciate the sentiment, thank you, and of course likewise to you both.

I've been very inactive in terms of music this whole year (and a fair bit beyond), but fortunately this piece is fitting every year so I can present it to you all over again! - Clever me, eh wink

Yes, thanks. I suppose you could say I've become quite disillusioned with anything creative as a result of the rough year that just passed... or something smirk
