Subject: and

Sending mp3 of a new song idea.

It's in 4/4 -- I'm feeling like our EP could use a bit of that!

Couple notes: I think it sounds quite a bit like some Exxxxx or xx song -- I will check whether it's too close - probably not.

Pat, the 8th notes in bass have a kind of goofy shuffling feel - I can easily make them even 8th notes if you prefer (that's what I tried to play, but after looping I didn't mind what came out.)

Melody is kind of tentative - wanted to give some idea, but leave room for Markus -- likewise in B section, I didn't play anything over the chords.

Can easily do a 3rd section, but want to run it by you first.

talk soon, t.=


. . . stick around, you never know. .
