That's great... ...somehow, the banjo has eluded me all this time, but I love to hear it in non-country stuff where you wouldn't expect it to be...(like say on 'Cloudbusting'/Kate Bush). I did play slide in a session once on a 'guitjo', which was basically a 6-string banjo tuned like a guitar.

Yeah, me too, I like it when bands really experiment with instruments in that way. Sometimes it seems like there are rules about which instrument can and can't be used in certain genres.

How are things in Sweden, Stiff? Good, I hope...

We've had two really bad sport days, but other than that everythings fine... Still waiting for the Roy-tour to hit us
How are things in Memphis?
Oh... Btw, I heard there's a Jerry Lee Lewis day in Memphis, is that true?

Memphis has been really beautiful this week...sunny and windy...luckily no bad effects from the big storm down below us... and Jerry Lee...as far as I know, there's not a Jerry Lee Lewis day here, probably because he's really from Mississippi, and this is considered Elvis town...you would not believe the throngs of 'Elvis people' that come from around the world on both his birthday, and the anniversary of his death. It's a huge circus...

But Jerry Lee is still 'The Killer', and everybody knows it...definitely a living legend...I'm proud to have been his guitarist there for awhile.

Ok, I renewed Destiny's Decision a whole lot, cannot say it's just a snippet anymore. Still working on it, monday one new synthpart will be added which will cause the whole song to be completely rearranged. The drums is still below acceptable level, only a straight 1-2-3-4 kik but there's a lot of work in the song now. Lots of Reason tracks with modulation and such, basically I'm only gathering material, building stones. Monday will be the last recording day for the song and then a period of editing and fine tuning will start. Very midi and virtual analog, a house song a la Cubase .......

That was my first reaction too... He's always talking about Ferriday and not Memphis.
I've actually thought about going to US and visit the old rock n' roll and blues towns like Memphis, New Orleans, Chicago and so on. My sister and her husband live in US (can't remember where right now) and we have talked about it. And of course I would have to visit the churches there... You know like Lewis ranch (if it's still open), Graceland and Alice Coopers town

Agreed, they say Elvis is 2nd to none, I say he is 2nd to THE one
When did you play with him btw?

Elvis sucked.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Nah, he didn't suck... he did tons of great songs IMO. I just think the moviebiz ate him up, the songs he had to do for the movies are crap most of them. But the early rock n' roll stuff and also some later songs (mostly ballads) are really good IMO. Of course, he is no Jerry Lee... don't know if he beats Carl Perkins (why doesn't anybody remember him?!) either.

Roy...

Thanks for the input...yep that's me singin'...if the vocal punch-ins that you're referring to are the "If this is goodbye" and each 'answer' in the Chorus...I'm planning to fatten up that part with few extra tracks of backing vox...there is one line in the second verse that I need to redo or shift ahead a bit...I think I came in a bit behind the beat...makes for a good weekend project...

I've got a few more tracks...I can surely post them...

Keep on keepin' on...

GenerationM,
I really like your song.....especially the singer(you?)...some vocal punch-ins seem too abrupt and obvious to me, but probably won't to the average listener....he did a great job on the vocal, IMO. Good song...post more when you can.

Hey - I remeber Carl Perkins. I liked his 1956 hit classic "Blue Suede Shoes." Good guy!

What does "IMO" mean? I see it used a lot here.

Jay,

You got me hooked on this song. Actually went to your FTP site and downloaded the rest of the stuff you had there. Love you sound! I would love to hear anything else you have.

The only thing I don’t like about this stuff is you put keyboardist like me out of work! Let’s here more.
