Holy smokes. You are definitely a seasoned musician.
The heavy one is awesome especially where the drums and bass come in and the guitar rifts sound so cool. I really like it.

The less heavy one I could drift off to sleep listening to and that is definitely not an insult. To me itís sounds Pink Floyd influenced with a bit of Jeff Beck. Thatís to my ear. Itís very good. Iím somewhat jealous. Iíd love to be able to create something but Iím techie challenged. I canít for the life of me figure out garage band or cake walk so I just download background music to play along with.

Thanks! Been playing for 40 years and have been in quite a few bands. I just use Audacity for my solo stuff. No frills!

G'day Plankton! Sorry I'm a bit late but we get up late here (or is it early) anyway most of this lot are asleep when I get online. Been to New York and Pittsburgh and a place called Monongahela. If you ever come this way be careful , there's a lot of plankton eating whales here! Welcome!

Well thank you Minx!

Yes thats MLK. A lot of these songs, well I guess all of them, were slapped together fairly quickly with no real direction. Grab/create a drum track and improv over it then build from there. I had a lot of fun doing them though, trying to learn as I go. I still have a lot to learn too, but I've since hung up my guitars for disc golf to keep the atrophy from setting in. Keeps me moving.

Very happy you're enjoying them!

Thank you! And no problem, I like to sleep in too. lol

Just looked that Mon place up. Looks like a very scenic route along the river. I haven't been out east much, but places like that stir the 'wanderlust'.

Whales usually spit me back out. I'm a little sour so I'm probably safe.

Aww, man you really hit the 'hmm, maybe I should get back into it' place in my noggin thats hiding in a dark corner.

A few years back I told my self, I said self: I'll get back to it when my disc golf game falls apart and I can no longer keep a competitive edge, which isn't far off.

Really though I just got burned out, but I do still pick up my Uke quite a bit. I usually play for my plants and fish in the morning before I leave for work. They haven't complained yet.

Thatís my favourite instrument. I saw your disc golf as well itís on the same YT channel - that looks like fun. A modified frizbee.
You guys can really swing it into a distance

Some of the young guns can throw 400-500+ feet (122-152 meters). I can only strive for that, unrealistically. lol

The disc golf community is amazing with some outstanding people on and off the course. We had the Pro Tour come through my neck of the woods a couple of weeks ago (I was in attendance as a spectator), and the week before that, the shot that was heard around the world happened out in Utah:
