Here's another song, aptly named for its one beat per syllable nature.

Right now, I'm thinking of this as a demo. I think one day I want the strummed geetars to be banjos, and the organ to be something else (slide guitar, mayhaps?). But I don't have a banjo, so here it is. The middle is my favorite.

The organ was lent to me by my old English teacher, who found it for 11 dollars at a thrift store. It's a portable windpipe organ, which I haven't found a place for in a song yet. I think it is meant to be this sort of background 'mmmmmmm' you know? But maybe that's just me and not knowing how to play it.

I don't care what
you say, you said
'you are my friend'
again and again.

I think I used
to talk to myself
I wonder what
we talked about.

You'll be there in
the end, though you
don't talk to me
in front of your friends.

I don't care what
you say, you said
'you are my friend'
again and again.

I wonder if I'll
ever talk again,
or how long it's
really been.

So, you don't have a banjo, huh? Have you seen this? And if sometime you need other kind of guitars, like a cuatro, a tres or a jarana, don't hesitate to ask me.

Cool song, again.

Hey, that's a really cool link, micayetoca. I'll be sure to hold on to that. And thanks so much for the offer! I'm sure someday soon something will be headed your way. Although, I do not know how to incorporate your sounds directly into the garageband file....

Hey, Corduroy, nice work yet again. Does Garageband have multiple tracks? You could have micayetoca's part in another track (I've never used it, so I'm not sure).

This is very sweet man, please keep 'em coming, and definitely use that link provided by micayetoca!

Yeah, garageband has tracks, I just wouldn't know how to load in another persons recording and then make sure the timing is correct. I'll have to look for tutorials sometime.

Thanks for the nice words!
