I thought there was more discussion about this... maybe it was an exchange of emails... I'm on another computer these days, and haven't heard anything more. I've got started on my contribution. Basic arrangement anyway. I've picked an odd bit to cover, so I feel pretty free to do what ever I want. The original, which I got from Micky, is pretty nifty but not like anything you might have heard before. Makes it much harder to fcc up.

I don't think you've missed anything, Ron - I guess everybody is getting their contribution(s) together.

I've more or less finished the backings to my version of 'CDTM' give or take a few howling wolves and windy weather, although I'm having a bit of problem with rain. I have auditioned two rain storms so far. The first lot sounded like hiss. The second lot were a bit better, but sounded like crackling. It's not easy. And rain can be so temperamental - push it to far and it'll throw an artistic strop and the barometric pressure will drop by 5 newtons (36km).

There's also a bonus mashup of 'Night In Dad's Bag' but this will probably have to be left off as it might be a bit too naughty. Heh Heh.

Yeah, we have problems like that up here too..

The old sound effects trick was to drop rice grains onto a balloon to simulate the sound of rain.  I suppose if you want heavy rain you could try pees...

Yes, Dave. A good idea! I've run a cable to the toilet and attached an SM58, as is usual in the circumstances.

Oho! (side note: I had to log in to open that link - I don't think I've had to do that before - Jules, am I wrong or simply mistaken?)

Anyway - the guitar solo will be done by Slash.

New security feature.

Often mistaken, usually wrong. That's what passes for normality in my kennel.

...and features a cover version of Creedence's 'Up Around The Bend'.

That's a bit rough.

If there are any bands/artists here who maybe didn't see the original message about the Micky tribute CD there's still time to get involved.  Please PM me for more details.  The date for submission of finished tracks has now been set at 22 Jan. 2011.

If anyone would like to have a go at some artwork for the CD then please contact me.

Also looking for a suitable title - any suggestions?

Panic over. The Rain now sounds very wet.
We now turn our attention to the wind - it's just not draughty enough. Difficult to achieve on tape (or whatever it is these days....)
