Not my usual style of music but I did like that piano melody that runs through the song.

In a similar manner, my bands website is now live and has a video clip, more to be uploaded soon. I am the cool one with the guitar :D

Cheers for having a listen.
Glad to see you're not playing that bass with a pick. :D

:shock: Trying not to rise to the bait....but my instrument has two extra strings!!

Like listening to other peoples created music, generally more interested than the censored that record companies put out.

I'm not a musician, but one of my best friends is. Here's a link to his stuff. He started off just playing guitar, but he's been learning about production and programming the other instruments as well. It sounds really good to me, and I'm always happy to share his links!

They are really good, just needs some vocals to finish them off.

The hardest of all Fred's is in a band with a similar vibe to yours and he's a bass player too, he usually goes mental when I start moaning about playing the bass with a pick. :wink:
