    very nicely done . Great feel. It seems that you have a knaack for the much maligned feast.

    So do tell, which application did you use? Did you use drum patterns/loops or did you bang out the pattern on the keyboard or use the mouse? Didja play the keys in real time? etc. etc. In the past I spent months putting in MIDI notes one at a time, which I can't do any more. I'm willing to tolerate my rudimentary keyboard playing just to get something done.

    I am not a fan of MIDI ...

    It makes my head hurt trying to program music ....

    I'd rather play with live musicians...

    The drooling drummer and stoned bass player are preferable, IMHO ...

    Jus sayin ...

    The drums are a loop. The keyboard is real time.

    I can see it's going to be hard but Beethoven programmed music, with a pen. I'm sure he would have been thrilled with what we have at our fingertips. Not that I'm writing classical music. I'm sure you have heard records where the drums have been programmed and didn't even notice. I know I have.

    That sounds great!
    Consider making us a backing track.

    I am a fan of MIDI. And I seldom program music. I mostly use it to connect a controller to a sound source. Occasionally to record or replay settings.

    MIDI and Programming are not exclusive!

    MIDI itself captures the raw performance without sounds.... nothing is stopping you from recording that performance by actually playing!
    Yes, it's not as natural on guitar as it is with keyboards, but that's a different topic than just midi itself.

    I plead guilty to programming my brain every time I pick up an instrument.

    You have a fundamental misunderstanding of what midi is ... just sayin.
    *Mjark may have been drooling drunk when he laid down the bass, drums and keys parts ;).

    I'm old school ...

    Me and my buddies would do overdubs on multiple cassette decks in the late 70s and early 80s... all live tracks ...
