Hey Berni! Did you write or record something for "Rainy Sunday Afternoon"? I just received a request, so I wanted to know the status.

[avatar]

It wasn't difficult with the right tools. A zoom 505 effects pedal - an F distortion setting. I then ran some vital synth overlay. I just kept messing and listening to music in that style. I want to try and do more of this maybe an album

[avatar]

Unfortunately I wasn't able to use the Realtracks on "September Sunrise" because you can't edit the finished product in Logic Pro. It creates a WAV file rather than a MIDI file when you import it. I'd have probably been happy if I could figure out how to modify the decay and release on the MIDI samples to make them a little more realistic. But I'm glad you liked it!

Thank you for listening! Our South African Christmas' are usually very hot. No problem writing cold songs in SA winter's in our Jul/August

@mikeb

Thanks for the listen and comment on 'We Might See Some Rain'!

[avatar]

Thats why I live in one of the coldest areas of Germany.
I am unable to think when it gets too hot outside. ☀️☀️☀️

@nadine

Yes. I see all three words in English. Maybe these happen because of mistakes. Or they have to drink barrels of whiskey to get over it. In German they only use the term barré.

Thank you, Berni! Andrea is working on some lyrics. So psyched to read and hear them!

A barrel chords is a chord where a finger puts down several strings. You need much more force and the position is inconvenient. I have serious trouble playing them and it may take years until they sound clean.

So sorry to hear about your loss. When I lost my only aunt I was devistated, she was the second mother, the anit-mother, the living angel.. RIP. Would you prefer to simply leave it completely until after the funeral? That would be perfectly fine. There are many sub cogs turning right now and it really is a relaxed schedule for the next forseeable future. If you would like to do something before you go, send me an email about what exactly, we can have a before/after deliniation and I can plan around that, but again, no rush is necessary. But if there's something to expect, it would be good for me to know what. Thanks.

Hi Bernie. Yeah, when you get a chance to watch Strange New Worlds, I definitely recommend it. Has the old TOS feel to it. Every episode is it's own story. It does have some over arcing themes that tie it all together though. But when you see Kirk, I don't know, he didn't seem like the right guy for the role to me.

[avatar]

Thanks for the kind words !
Did you get my email resend of 2 days ago?

[avatar]

Thank you for your words on Piglet Awakening! I've not seen that cartoon. Inspiration was a movie-title-challenge which spawned the word u-s. Being into the farmyard scene I just looked around and I saw killings of animals all over the place. From t-h-e-i-r perspective a real life, ongoing, horror movie!

[avatar]

Hi Bernie! No, I don‘t have italian parents. I am absolutly german 😜 I kept this name from my last husband - the best thing he gave me at all ;-)

[avatar]

They do seem to having a "Who can be the most bigoted" competition. I guess that's what appeals to their members. Sigh...

@nadine

Thanks for your comments, Berni! Sure, you can grab that Sunday Afternoon blues and try something. Only lyrics, or vocals too? I will not sing on my final versions. Should I reserve that one for you?

Do you think the recording quality of the guitars is good enough to work with? It will take MONTHS until I get a condensor microphone to record properly, cause I ain't got the space.

[avatar]

Thanks my friend. Did you get my email of 4 ish days ago. Anything pressing is mentioned there. If not I'll resend.

@mikeb

Thanks for the comment on 'A Life of Unfulfilled Dreams'!

Thank you!

Hey! Great to hear from you and thanks for listening. Glad you're enjoying my efforts so far.

It's so funny you say that abut the phrase 'terrible excuse...' because I thought it was "terrible excuse for..." as well, but I Googled it and saw evidence to the contrary. But now I Google it again, and "for" seems to be right. So I don't know anymore. Anyway, if "I Can't Get No Satisfaction" taught us anything, it's that no one ever cared about poor grammar getting in the way of a good song 😂

[avatar]

Hi Berni! Thanks for the comment - there is no grace in this blood bath of horror and Grace is the bride… :)

[avatar]

Not a chance. This think is way much bigger. Looking forward to your response, my friend. Excited to again have your talent on board! :)

[avatar]

Thanks Berni. I appreciate your thoughts on Alone.
