Description : Sometimes you can't come over to give a hug, so you have to express your feelings differently. This is my way to say... hello my friend, I'm with you.

Edit: because several people asked... yep, that's me inexpertly playing all instruments, zero midi, all live... well, recorded live anyway ;)

    I wasn't aware you played all the instruments. Awesome work my friend.

    Thanks man. It's always been my dream to be able to do this and in 2020 with the help of DAWs and audio interfaces AND relatively affordable instruments, it's easier than ever.

    When I grew up, it would have taken a fortune and weeks of work to make what I can do now in an hour. We live in awesome times (even with Corona).

    I love this piece. The melody is groovin', the beat is head-boppin', and the musicianship is seriously awesome. I picture one supertalented dude playing all the instruments and then mixing them in his home studio. Or perhaps you have a live-in band. I've no idea how the music was actually created but it sounds great. And I love the sentiment behind the piece. Whichever friend received this note, I hope they feel as special and honored as they should.

    Groovy! I really want to know how you do those bass slaps, are those recorded live or synthetically made via a vst?

    Reply by BaoBou

    Almost everything is live, except a tiny bit with a Korg Electribe.
    - the bass is an Ibanez bass
    - the guitar is a Gibson LP
    - the keyboard is a Roland F06
    - the drums are from a Roland Octopad.

    This is also why it's all not perfectly straight ;) I'm sure a better player (and better recording) would help that.
    Thanks for the compliment!

    Forgot to mention go to my song list here and listen too "When Juxta Met Funk" ... gives you an idea of how i make a funk song... food for thought:)

    DJSLTUK on Sat 4th Apr 2020 - 3 months ago

    LOVE IT!!!!

    Agree the chord progressions are awesome...would suggest making 4 x layers of the bass to bring it out some and infact do the same for drums too then you can also setup 4 way panning of same sounds...which is cool in funk yet knowone seems to do it?

    Keys are the loudest which i dont mind as im a synth player first and foremost:)

    Awesome song here...needs so extra zest but its getting there!

    Thank you! There's in fact three slightly different chord progressions, to throw you off a bit ;)
