FS VideoCajun Queen

Coming to a bar near you...the latest from the talented Marky Mark. Great words. Mark sends his new stuff through to Gabb who tries to work out the notes and lays a bass track over the top. The wonders of the 21st Century! Might dub some drums over too some day. Gotta love those lyrics...

Latest Stuff

Gabb's been mucking around trying to display lyrics and chords in an easy way to learn a song. First attempt is the brilliant new Cat Empire tune No Longer There.

Check it out!

drumHitTwoMillion.jpgDRUMS in PINE BLUFF

I recently hauled my drum kit down to Pine Bluff where we are now staying for a while.  What a good idea!

And today saw my 2,000,000th hit on the ol’ pads and it was only fitting that it should be to Cat Empire.  And you too can be there! - click the Sol y Sombra link below. [note: That was November 2007 - Update: April 2008 and we are up to 2,250,000. I now have it set up so that if a cool tune comes on the Internet Radio playing over the PC, I can turn, move 1 metre, flick one switch and I'm bangin away on the ol Yamaha. Sweet!]

Pretty rough on the edges, but not bad considering lack of play (maybe 15-20 sessions in the 6 months in USA). Basically played to this tune constantly for the last 2 sessions = around 20 times.  Actually it sounds a lot better that you think when you're hitting away. 

Can you tell the couple of times when I drop both sticks?  Great fun and must look silly with headphones on and nothing but ‘tap tap’ going on.

I tell you what Dads – ban video games and get one of these!

Sol y Sombra - 6.2Mb mp3 - recorded 28/11/07 at Gabb and Deb's Pine Bluff apartment.
