I like where your stuff is going Paul. That second part is difficult...I find I have plan my breathing because it does not come naturally there. You can sure run out of wind on that phrase.

Thanks very much Tim. My phrasing was different for the last line of the chorus all three times. The first time I ran out of breath between "nip" and "cat". Not the best place to run out of breath...

Paul I really like the tone and timber of your singing- your voice is a natural for this material!

Love the intimate gourd sound too, it seems very appropriate for this whimsical song.

Thanks for the kind words Strumelia.

Great tunes, Both Keemo Kimo and the Nine O'Clock Bell Jig.  I love the great audio quality you got for them.

What are you using to record them? Anything special?  Inquiring minds would like to know.  :>)

Thanks Scott. I used an H2 Zoom digital recorder, sometimes recording onto a memory card and sometimes using the H2 only as a mic to record directly into GarageBand.
