This is a song I wrote on my ukulele with finger pickin’ (from years of finger pickin’ my guitar). I luv my uke but I never know what chords I’m playing because I’m too lazy to look at chord charts…Continue

"I like it. It certainly has some Sullivan vibs. O'Sullivan was one of my favorites at the time and I am happy to see his name mentioned again and that his music still lives through your lovely tune. In my part of the world the youth…"

"Why does the minor sound sad or angry? Hmm, well part of it must be because the minor contains an inbuilt discord.  If you look at the harmonic series, harmonic 5 is (as near as damn it) effectively a major 3rd up from the 4th. Like on a…"

"The Partridge Family movie?!!! Again, can I be Keith? But seriously, thanks for the kind compliment. I have to admit that I’ve fantasized an “Inside Out 2” movie with a scene of the “sadness” character off on her own…"

Rick replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion Desert. Twilight.
"Dane, The more I hear your stuff the more I like it. Yes, I see the desert scene you’ve depicted. It works, it totally works. Great job! There’s something mystifying in your stuff, can’t put my finger on it. It’s like I step…"

"Yes, I sort of turned the “Penny Lane” trumpet solo “Inside Out” (pun intended) on this one. So you win a brand new car! My brother said kind of the same thing; that it doesn’t sound sad. Kinda weird because to me the…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Rick's discussion Sadness
"Another nice one but I can't associate it with sadness unless the meaning was ironic. It goes along with a "Penny Lane" kind of bounce, lot's of energy, nice percussion and an interesting variety of instruments.  I'll…"

"Hi Dane, Sorry in advance for the mountain of words that follows.  :) Funny isn’t it? The thing about intelligence.. and friends. I’ve heard that too. And don’t sell yourself short on that front, I’ve listened to some of…"

"Hi again, Rick. In passing, seems we have a few things in common - I have no social media accounts. Set up a Faceache on only because it was a requirement to get to a news site which I never used! Never been back to faceache since. As for friends,…"

"Thanks Ingo Lee, all very good information. I didn’t realize this forum was mostly for classical music. Probably won’t stop me from posting stuff though. I love classical music, that’s what I listen to when I turn on a radio."

"Hi Rick, I could basically rewrite the review that I did for "I Don't Want to Think" which I liked and complimented you on because it was well done also.  So this song is very well put together and yes, very reminiscent of…"
