well my new love song YOU AND ME.. just got a remix.. i have a cold so my ears missed some hot spots in the first mix.. you know what? anybody else feel this? ballads with a lot of tracks are the hardest to mix it seems.. they move slow and all those tracks are tricky to adjust perfectly.. so easy for one word or note to be too loud.. so much space.. everything stands out.. gotta up this.. lower that.. ad naseum.. etc.. lol.. wonder what you all think of it?

by the way.. thanks so much for all the reviews so far my friends.. much appreciated.. I'll review back anyone who takes the time to review me.. cheers.. jose :-)

it don't really matter..

well your listens and reviews do matter.. I appreciate your time listening to a jazz guy demonstrate how to play to changes.. wanted to solo once on acoustic..&nbsp; a 1954 harmony f-holed, archtop&nbsp;steel string.. margot saved it from neglect when she found it at an antiques fair in newark, nottinghamshire, england..<br />the tone is weak but it's unique and still speaks.. :-)

well I've personally sold a few of my new CDs RAPSTER GUITARS IT but it's proving expensive to ship it from here in switzerland to you in the USA so I've joined up at CD Baby and would like to let you all know that it will be available there this week..

<p>just go to cdbaby.com and use the search engine.. type RAPSTER GUITARS IT in the album title box and you should be able to save considerable postage and have faster delivery.. if you're in europe you might want to order from my page here.. just open my blogs to find the info..</p>
<p>again thanks very much for your support and friendship.. it's very much appreciated indeed.. :-)</p>

sometimes everything is right in the world.. lol.. great to be back with so many fine indie musicians on the MIX.. it doesn't have to be the old mixpo.. this one is cool how it is.. and getting better all the time.. love the new look and and colors.. all blake's new graphic touches.. classy stuff :-)<br />

and man moving to the alps was the best thing i could do.. got gigs again.. it sure feels good to be back on stage.. it might not be for 10,000 people like with David La Flamme back in the day but it'll do.. it'll do.. &nbsp;that's me in the pic with my new partner martin.. he's a fine guitar player and gets lots of calls to play.. we are sounding good as a duo but also have a few quartet gigs coming up soon..<br /><br />so long liv live music, long liv indie music, mixposure.com,&nbsp;and let's keep bringing the&nbsp;passion to the web..<br /><br />cheers friends.. :-)
