    Plugged the bass into the computer this afternoon with no definite plans or ideas and this is what emerged. Good for a smirk and a shrug, perhaps... I wanted to jump on the bandwagon of overlaying snippets of spoken word recordings, so this represents my entry in that... genre, or whatever.

    Kick ass. I dig it. Good to hear funk type stuff with actual chord changes.

    Where'd you find the spoken word stuff?

    ... All it needs is a sitar...

    Edit: It also needs Bill Clinton's "I did not have a sexual relationship with Ms. Lewinsky" talk :p.

    Great tune SD !
    I really dig those harmonics. They give the melody a great atmosphere.

    BTW, what strings are you using on your Cirrus now ?
