Particle Man

A really spare last-minute acoustic cover of the TMBG song.

The call went out...there was a missing particle man but now I think there may be too's one anyway.

I've said I've liked every song on this album so far. This one too. I like this.

Nice. This more than does the job, especially in the harmonies.

Great guitar playing. What is that accordion-esque sound?

Thanks! This was a fast one. Would have been nice to do something more polished but I just wanted to get it in.
Corduroy: it's a melodica.

Yeah, great playing. That's the kind of the thing I sometimes pretend to do when I really get in a groove ... but I can't quite hack it.

Oh man I hope I don't come across as cloying or obnoxious, sorry about that.
Not fishing for compliments, just incredibly insecure.
I tend to cringe big time when I listen back to stuff I've done.

chococat, listen: Your song is awesome.

Don't be so insecure! You have made a wonderful thing. But even if you hadn't, it's made, you know? It's its own thing now. You have contributed positively to this world, which is more than most people can say. You did good.

If you make something, regardless if other people say it's good or bad, it's you. That's not bad at all.

Oh dude what no. I'm not being serious. You're far from the worst, you're straight aces by me.

You mean, "You guys are the worst."

And that melodica is perfect. Also I like the choice you made of 6/8 (?) with the folky vibe. Makes it sound much more like a dance, outdoors at some party at night.

Loved it!

Yeah, this is really good. Especially, as umbu says, the harmonies.
