Description
I wrote the track in March as a sort of joke. But later on I figured it was more catchy than funny, so I decided to do it properly. And who better to do that but Ziti!
I sent him the track a couple of weeks ago and last night he sent me several really cool tracks, which I cut up, spliced together and arranged.

Enjoy!

Nice energy
I like the funky vibe the synth was holding down. Ziti did a great job starting out the solo tactfully then gradually building to a climax at the end. Well constructed and fun piece.

SERIOUSLY Fun...
Exactly what I'd expect from the EinarFran duo... extremely catchy music, with Fran's tasty guitar work leading and following. Absolutely LOVE the slow-to-full-speed section there... there's still a lot of your original humor in this, but you are right, it is just plain solid keyboard composition and playing, and Fran has an impeccable ear for where the guitar should be, and plays like a dream. Kudos to Duos!
ttfn,

I Had No Idea
Einarus was so funky. Love the funky clavanet. And of course Fran sounds fabulous. I love the wooly ooooooooo tone at 1:21. The piano interlude is a beautiful change of pace and feel.

fun and funky
What terrific clavinet and guitar tones on both of your parts--definitely not a joke track!

Funny--you'd never know there were splices/edits--it sounds really organic. Great work, both of you!

very cool
I love the different guitar tracks passing the song back and forth. It really helps to move the song forward, having the different sounds coming in and out. The piano interlude was great - completely unexpected but fit in perfectly. I like the slow startup again after the piano. And then it GETS DOWN! nice nice nice stuff here guys.

This is catchy and sort of pop-funky....
...and it takes its time about taking flight...

I like the way Fran burns it up at points, but then it all backs off and gets simple.... Great contrasts as a result....
