Hi all-

Songramp is an online community (much like Macca Central) where members can share songs and comment on each other's music.

Check out my page (about 30 songs posted as well):

You will also (gasp) see a photo of me... :roll:

macca IS an influence, isn't he?

my memory is certainly not what it once was. so my sincere apologies if i am off base here. but...was one of those song titles "borrowed" from the fake (early)song list that was supposed to make up the chaos and creation album?

and by the way...jgkojak, you ARE one handsome devil.

my avatar, sadly, is an actual portrait of me. so...

Yep- once we all found out it was a fake track listing I thought "that wouldn't be a bad title for a song" so I wrote one(!)

No- that's quite a compliment- because I know my singing is the rough part of listening to those songs(!)

By the way... the best stuff (I Don't Have the Right, Kind of Love) are the first couple of posts- though you can kinda tell what people like by the # of times people comment and/or recommend it.

Thank you--

Leonard Cohen with a head cold! ;)

I just put up one of the more complex things I've tried musically (still can't nail the vocals):

Unfortunately, its probably more Peter Cetera than Macca!

I don't know....I kinda like your vocals...there is a certain.....charm %%- .....besides...it's more important to give it a go, then to not try right?

Hey, what music program are you using?

I use Sound Forge for the final mastering. For some songs, I just do some keyboard programming and then play and sing live (helps the vocals a lot I have found).

For others, I use Cakewalk for multi-tracking and then Sound Forge for mastering (I Don't Have the Right, for example, was done this way).

I like "Letting It Go". Wings-ish. Keep it up.
