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 ;)

    Love how you are digging into those bass strings, lots of snap and expression. The song is very catchy, upbeat and fun! Those are the ingredients for an interesting song for the listener. Cool guitar chops and lots of them, the keys help compliment them. All around funky, cool track!

    Well done!!

    Thanks a lot Wayne, always appreciate your comments. I'm not nearly as good a bass player as you are, but if you could enjoy it then I guess it's not all bad :) thanks again!

    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!

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