Boldt violin

still the best solo violin sound I have at my disposal.. and it was a free sw instrument made by a MJer. Just needs a bit of tweaking here and there ... I can't resist making a big noise- thanks for listening Karen, appreciated :o)

Happy St. Patricks Day!
Early.... I like the mix with the drums and guitar. Really Kicks it up another notch. Now I'll have to watch out for those rainbows. Thanks for sharing

Thanks John

I feel I sought inspiration from the Corrs "Toss the feathers" on the mix of instruments. Chasin' rainbows .. now that would've been a good title.

I don't plan on kissin' the Blarney stone often. Was a bit of fun... and probably sounds more Nickerty, nackerty, noo, noo, noo than Irish :o)

Can't fail
With me anything folksy gets my vote. Like the way the song built up and the ending was very original, as if the tune gets wiped out, and then refuses to die.

Enjoyed. Thank you.

Kind of like
Fairport (from their "9" period) might have done if they'd used synths.
