    Ha pasado casi mes y medio desde la ultima vez que he escuchado tu tema, y hoy al volver a escucharlo me he vuelto a emocionar, por lo que no he dudado ni un momento en resaltarlo una vez más en este comentario. Ya de por si es una canción que siempre me ha gustado, con su toque épico, emocional, con esas gaitas tan especiales. Gracias amigo ShortBusMusic por hacernos sentir vivos. Salud y paz para todos.

I'm happy to hear you are still wandering around under a new moniker. I'm going to head over to your place to see what's going on.

    Greetings, A very suiting tune always. You never can go wrong with amazing grace. So yeah this version was very interesting and pleasant to listen to for sure. Sure its a very nice vocal integrated in this track. The melodie is also very solid to listen to. And to top it off, the message in this one is even stronger. So thumps up for this one. And one for the favs list indeed. Keep up the good work and have a good one, Verdi

    Reply by ShortBusMusic

    Verdi, you are much too kind, sir. I loved Songboy's rendition of this one and when he posted the pella I thought I would at least try something with it. He's a tremendous talent for sure. As always, your time and feedback are greatly appreciated. I hope all is well

    A song that is socially aware and appropriate for the times and to heal the world. The production is grand. The singing is awesome. Great job and prayers to those we may have lost on this site and beyond. The singer brings it all home in front of your magnificent arrangement. Excellent job.

    Hi, Barry. My favourite hymn as well. You did a beautiful job on it. Songboy3's vocals were really good. The hymn has such an interesting history, written by a former slave trader who became a preacher and abolitionist in England. Has had a variety of melodies, but this one is the most popular for sure.

    Anyway, the hymn is a source of comfort and hope. It's a perfect example of the healing power of music. Of course, music has lots of power to do quite opposite, but that's definitely not the case with your excellent track.


    Reply by ShortBusMusic

    Hey Eric, it is really nice to have you stop by, it's been a while since we touched base. I have always loved this hymn and when hearing Songboy3's vox, and during these trying times, I just felt compelled to try to do something. I hope you are staying safe and warm and healthy so far in 2021. One thing is for sure, we all hopefully can look to better times ahead. As always, you kindness and friendship are appreciated. I hope all is well.

    Great to log in for the first time in a long time and find this amazing performance. My condolences on your situation my friend. Know it well as my wife had a serious brain injury last year. 4 months of hospital and 6 in a rehab center. Now home which has become a small wheelchair accessible apt.and in need of 24 7 care...that's my job...You will always be an inspiration for this hymn...God bless you and yours...Ed

    Reply by ShortBusMusic

    Hey Ed, what a wonderful surprise. First let me say how sorry I am to hear about your wife and her issues. I'm not sure who coined the phrase "golden years" but so far there's not much golden about them. I can say that your wife is in good hands with you taking care of her. Wish I was closer so I could lend more than moral support. Anyway, thanks for the very kind words and I will keep you and your wife in my thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself.

    Hey Bear! Hope you're staying safe and enjoying a cooler winter here in Florida. I'm looking forward to when swimming is fashionable again, brrrrrr.

    Such a wondrous song to begin with and a powerful version you posted here. The vocals are so strong and the bagpipes blew me away. Been hearing this song a lot lately with all the insurrection and death going on and such. Looking forward to 2022 already and to put this all behind us. Thanks for posting such a positive, hopeful track!


    Reply by ShortBusMusic

    Hey Wayne, hope you are staying warm. I asked my wife if she was going to take a dip in our pool and I thought she was going to club me, haha. We moved to Florida for heat, not cold. Anyway, it's always good to have you drop by. The bagpipes were a last minute light bulb moment and I was hoping they would work. As always, your time and kind words are appreciated. I hope you are staying warm until that great Florida sunshine warms things up.

    You can NEVER go wrong with hymns.
    This one is very appropriate for now.
    You have done the vocals a great justice.
    Very moving and what a great choice of instrumentation.
    I hope all is well. :-)

    Ms Patricia, it is so good to have you drop by for a bit. Songboy did such an amazing job on the vocals, I just had to try something. And like you say, this is much needed in these horrible times in which we live. I hope you and your family are staying safe and weathering the storm. As always, you time and kindness are greatly appreciated. I hope all is well.

    it is not necessarily the pandemic that comes to mind about this epic anthem, but the belief in the old light of a country again ... America is fighting but not only against a virus ... whoever lives there knows this better than I do but must be supported by the intelligent world citizens ... thank you Bear for this song, respect ...


    Reply by ShortBusMusic

    Hey Danke, as always a great pleasure to have you stop by. You are correct in that this is a great anthem, one that always helps ease pain. Part of America's suffering will end at noon today. Perhaps we can start healing a lot of the wounds that have been self inflicted, and healing relationships with other countries that I hope, have not been irreparably harmed. Stay safe out there. I hope all is well.

My older brother does the lead vocals and I do everything else, from instrumentation to harmonies. No vocal-editing whatsoever in this one. The guitars were all one-take recordings. Updated the audio - I added tambourine hits in the 2nd and 3rd choruses; just helps make for a more moving song.

No world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...

Description : This is my attempt at the one-hour challenge for LM (finished at 57 min 48 sec). I had to mix/master on the go and this was the result. Some bad chords here and there that I did my best to conceal, one-takes on guitar and piano and used an awesome acapella from a1000times, who wrote the words that Dikaiko sang over. I really like her voice. Anyhoo yea, I like this one a lot so probably gonna come back to this in the near future. Comments welcome.

I got the acapella here:

Description : I put this under acoustic even though I did use a couple midi tracks. I felt they sounded acoustic enough to put the track in that category. Suppose it could be chill out as well, however you want to label it, do so. I used an Indian flute and an electric guitar sounding plugin with some tremolo added along with acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Nothing too complicated here and I felt it sounded good enough to upload so enjoy!

Description : Written for Claudio's birthday (my Italian friend) in obvious waltz manner and with slight classical touch this tune appears to me almost painfully simple and minimalistic (and indeed it is)....and yet, Claudio who's very familiar with my music says that this is one of the nicest pieces of music I've ever written even if it wasn't his birthday present....well, who knows if he's right..:)^^
