Wrote this back in 1989 when I was eleven years old, although I didn't record it until fall 2002. As the original recording was only a demo, I FINALLY finished it on 25 December 2013.

I gotta be honest and say you're music is not really my thing. However, I actually enjoyed this quite a bit! Nice job! Smiley

LOL This recording was recent (i.e. last month) but the melody was first created in my head back then. It took 25 years for me to get the arrangement right LOL

LOL No sh*t...I have several works-in-progress versions of this very song, and it took a LONG time to get it right. Oddly, this version is *exactly* how I heard it in my head way back when, and it took this long to get it right!

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

Thank you very much! One day I'd like to have a live band record this, and possibly add lyrics & vocals to this.

First-off, Billy, that might be the funniest avatar you have come up with so far.
Okay, the sound-clip...I've listened to ten or so you've done - you do so many...  This is the Best one I've heard.  Very 70's Bop/Pop -has a nice groove.  The lead piano part is great.  This is just you on a keyboard right?  Not the band?  I don't want to do any negative criticism on you or anyone here.  But, some of the more out-there Electro/Jazzy/Pop Music ( if that's what to call it), isn't what I listen to usually.  I do listen to the 2000's REM stuff that is similar.  The Reveal album is one of my favorites, mostly because they could get such a "Beach Boys" sound on it.   Like I say though, this song Is Very Good.
You should develop it more, add some lyrics if you want, but this sounds good as an instrumental.
I didn't post it the other night, but I watched/listened to your "vocal audition" you-tube clip from last year.  How did that work out?  I wouldn't have seen it, as I can't bring myself to watch any of those types of shows.  But, it seems we do have some very talented players and singers posting on Smiley.  RangeRover kept suggesting I check some of the Music Section, and glad I did.
Keep Rockin' it Up!,  Will

TY Will...Wish I could take credit for actually playing the keyboard. I used to be able to play decently, but that's one of the (thankfully few) things I haven't been able to do since my minor stroke 3 years ago. I actually have a disc for my Playstation 2 that lets you make beats and music using pre-made loops. Well, that's not to my liking, so I make my own...which basically means I create each note one-by-one, individually. Kind of like a piano roll, really. Can be time consuming, but it gets it done. A lot of times, rather than use an instrument sample that comes with the program, I'll sample a different sound off of my daughter's keyboard, or maybe something else entirely (such as using the sound of my keys shaking as a hi-hat sound). From there, I hook up my PS2 to my laptop and record each track into Audacity. I then do my mixing and mastering with Adobe Audition.

Confusing? This video tutorial explains it a bit http://youtu.be/3qWLayx_JNY  I was a bit under the weather (plus nearly 50 pounds heavier) but it works.

I didn't make it past the auditions for the Voice, although I was selected as an alternate. Nothing ended up happening, but it was a hell of a great experience.

Yeah... going through my back catalogue and realizing the 234 songs on the site are actually less than half of our output was a headfucker LOL

In all seriousness, it might be roughly 500-600.
