Thoroughly enyoyable. Great drive and rhythm. Thank you!

Stunning composition beautifully played. Very descriptive, rhythmically and harmonically interesting. Well done. Is the partitura available?

:merci: Grateful for your kind remarks. The score is available as already mentioned. I still need to get the 3 parts into one file,
as with "Memory" score. Working things out...Anyway I`m glad you like "Bicycling" Thanks again..Mike

Excellent composition and performance! I enjoyed the rhythmic play between the bass and melody in the first part of the song. The harmonies and compositional structure are very tastefully put together in this song. Thanks for sharing

Great stuff, Mike.


High quality sound. What was the recording setup, if you don't mind saying?

Thanks for the comments. The recording set up is 2 AKG C1000S mikes, one each side, one higher than the other, more or less pointing down at the neck, through an Edirol UA 25 EX interface, and into Sonar Artist, set up as one track in stereo. Basic stuff really. I use a SSD PC, Windows 7, for which the support runs out end of year. To use this site its best to have a Mac.... looking at perhaps a refurbished MacMini.
