Obrigado meu vizhinu (sp?)! Very nice little piece. Can you post the lyrics for us? Hmmm?

Awesome Pt skills, sns!!! Thx for the comment. The lyrics are awfully stupid, I'm afraid. But you asked, so here they are:

A última vez que eu falei com você
não me lembro dela
a última vez que eu liguei pra você
nã pegou o telefone
após tanto tempo você
vai esquecer meu nome
mas eu penso em você
com um carinho enorme!!

which translates to something like:

I can't remember the last time I spoke to you
Last time I called you, you didn't pick up
After so long, you'll forget my name
But I think of you, with an enormous affection.

Thx for your interest, mate.

Heh heh! Brought a smile to my face! Very nice. And talk about short and sweet, man that was short. And real sweet.

Sorry sleepy pete, I replied without noticing you had also commented.

It is just me, I played a cheese grater (similar to this one) with a soft hair comb for the rhythm (the sh shsh sh shsh sh) sort of trying to mimic a guacharaca, the bass sound in the beat is the case of the mic, I'm beating it with my thumb and the clac sound is the thing one does with the tongue.

Last, the synthy little thing is actually guitar, through a weird effect called AsianKit that the portastudio has.

Thx for the questions, I love the feedback.

Hey flapjax! thx man. It was hellish to post it, though. I had it yesterday and my "#$"#%$ internet connection has been reaaaally unstable. Haven't been able to do much, it took me like five tries to upload it. I've also been meaning to check what you guys uploaded yesterday.

Thanks for telling us what you played. I love the cheese grater guacharaca (and that's exactly why I asked). I've used an old cake pan with raised bumps and a fork for the same thing! Great stuff.
