Bob - your voice has never sounded better
I swear you've morphed into an animated character. Does Katie know this? Andrew - you are such a good sport riding this sleigh through the ether. Great bass work and excellent lyrics - stunning production and more fun than a barrel of short cords.

It was actually quite easy! You need to trick Bob into thinking he's playing when he's actually working. It was no different than working with the kids at school! Thanks so much for the listen and kind comments. We appreciate it!

Actually Singing? Who? ME?
You must have my screeching confused with Andrews smooth layer of vocal bliss. After he bumped his head, he asked if I wanted to sing lead, (didn't anyone warn him?) so I huffed and I puffed and I had a great fall.

Vibrato? More like Vibraslap!

Spring Sprungy Sound
When Andrew told me we were paired up for this challenge, he made one request - that we have a springy sprungy sound.

I am so glad you mentioned it!

We hoped people would get a good laugh out of this one. Andrew came up with the funniest lyrics. I was most impressed with him. And another thing, he might look like a professional musician on the outside, but deep within, he's a raving lunatic. Fact.

Andrew and Bob,
For your homework you must calculate the total value of the package after all twelve days (minus the human interest gifts of course). Of course I just want one of the twelve Garage Band 11 CD's.
Check out my latest song called Cheap Tricks (LSP2)
alackbass said 2433 days ago (December 22nd, 2010)
Thanks Stephen
But as you heard there was only one GarageBand 11 CD! We'll see about getting you one of the six Monster cables. Thanks for being one of the ten+ fans a smiling. We appreciate it!
Check out my latest song called Mean Miss Teacher
sschedra said 2433 days ago (December 22nd, 2010)
It cumulative . . .
On each of the twelve days you get all the gifts again PLUS the additional days gift. So after twelve days of gifting you would have 12 Garage Band 11 CD's, 22 Ribbon Mics, 30 VST's, etc, etc. So why hoard all the wealth. After all, it is far better to give than receive . . . (LOL).
Very Merry Christmas and thanks for a year of growth and friendship,
Stephen

Yup- yuletidings ye bring

A piece of Christmas awesomeness. You know you've got a winning concept when it gets stuck in someone's head before they've even heard it. I was looking at MJ on my phone last night before I went to sleep and saw this. I was dreaming, "Fiiiive Extrrraaa Arrrms,"all night.

You guys rule. This is a big part of what Christmas is all about, community and happiness. Thanks for the download. I'll bust this out every year from now on. :)
