Hi Brian,

You have a bass player who is to die for! Love the very 'melancholy' cello playing in the background throughout this piece. Fits in well with the melody.

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That give me a good grounding. Cheers.

Hi Hugh,

Thanks for having a listen and your kind comments, the bass part is down to me and Korg, I over dubbed the original bass part in the style with my own little bits of runs etc.. after listening to the tune a few times, The cello is part of the style also , so it all worked out pretty well in the end.

Hi Jon D.

Thanks for having a listen and your kind comments, The Korg Pa700 which is what I am using now , is pretty much at the bottom end of the Korg range
and does pretty well , once you get it tamed

I have very vague memories of this piece and had forgotten all about it. Nice to have the melody recalled to mind. .. Fred
