    I've had it for a while and farted around a couple of times doing bass sound samples and a half-assed demo of a song (that my old band did a few times at practice - it was fun to hear someone with a real voice sing it).

    This is instrumental - I've got a bunch of song-with-lyrics ideas but it will take time to get them put together. I've got the mp3 hosted at Soundclick under Swayback by Nine Stone Ring. Hopefully that link will work.

    All comments welcome but go easy on my sax playing - it's been a long while and I can't say that I'm that happy with that aspect of it (I've been playing bass pretty much exclusively for the last 9 years).

    I dig it. Don't listen to much sax music, but your playing seemed fine to me.

    Good job man.

    Thanks, man. I tried it out in the car this morning and boy, I sure can tell I haven't played sax much at all in the last 9 years. I needed a melody instrument, maybe I'll just try my bass through my Unibass (up an octave) next time.
