    It certainly is and very well done - it is mostly an instrumental work so it needed that upbeat percussion groove to fill-in and keep it alive/interesting.

    I thought the drumming was pretty dense.

    I grew-up on Motown and this one you suggest is really good work - I'll just listen to it and its message, if you don't mind.

    Thanks, man!

    Very cool stuff. I truly envy people that have musical capabilities in whatever form.

    OK, one last one - I am reaching WAY back as far as I want too with this one and added some compression to it to bring the levels up - The percussion/fill stuff was done on a 2nd take as an overlay to the main track using the Samba speakers as reference for mixing. (They really sound good near-field - as far field - they lack bass so you need subs to deal with it in a larger room).

    I wish I was 20 YO again with what I am now experienced with and am capable-of affording . . .

    Something I drug up from the past called "Butterfly" written by Danno, Cassie and assisted by a famous Keyboard Player [David Sancious] and my meager drumming alone - I left out the other tracks as I can't stand the lyrics and thought that this work could stand on its own as is - hope you enjoy as background music --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/ga2hdj6umq...0Mix.wav?raw=1

    Might as well get the most out of your speaker builds - no sense building great speakers and judging them by poor quality audio sources . . .

    Glad to hear this, djg - I'll have more to add as I improve my technique and drumming skills. (I appreciate the feedback as well - gives me a reason to keep posting the effort here).

    Your mixes inspired me to finally get an online high fi music source. I may be old but I could hear the quality difference over free Pandora and youtube.

    Awesome, I'm nearly positive I know of those guys from back then. I can almost picture their avatars on the forum. Weird world.

    VERY probably, wogg - we used to use Cakewalk in the early days . . .
