The MacBook is back and as good as new -- they even replaced the scratched, dented case!
In the sidebar is the latest version of the song. I rerecorded everything, used fewer tracks, killed the shaker dead, kept the volumes and effects more consistent in the mixdown, and, imho, gave a better performance. There's still room for improvement. Happily, there's still time for it.
Feedback's always appreciated. Thanks to those who commented and sent email.
Next: Tune the voice, replay the solo
Thanks for listening!
