about

I love working with Arthur Rossi's lyrics. He usually writes about a hundred of them every FAWM. They often suggest a melody from first read. This one, I´d Repeat All Mistakes Again, apparently wanted to be a keyboard pop ballad. I tried on uke and guitar but it wanted the electronic sounds. I've only been playing keyboards for 2 months but I put the Casio on autopilot, clicked on beat 014- Slow BLD and played 2 finger chords to lay down the band track.
I've only started playing lead notes on guitar and uke since last summer so the solo is new for me too. I used the Valentine effect on my zoom G1Xon pedal processor. Thanks Arthur. That was fun.
