I like to play music...

This is a song I wrote about five years ago. Decided to make a decent recording of it, although, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to mixing songs. I just messed about with the plug-ins in Cubase until I was happy with what was coming out of my speakers.

So yeah, any good tips on mixing/mastering the track better?

About a year ago, i did work experience at the studio down the road. This is me messing about with the MIDI stuff.

I played all the drums and stuff in, on the keyboard, cos' i don't have a clue about samples!

For the sound effect, i used a Moog, and for the first bit of the high-pitched riff, an Alesis Andromeda. Cool Keys!

It's so called, cos' Jonny is my first name, and Friday was the day of the week i did it!

Anyway, enough rambling, enjoy listening!

This one's gone through many revisions. Started out as a song, with rubbish words. Then, 2 years ago - when i got my first recording machine - I recorded it, but didn't want to sing, so i put solo guitar over the top, improvising stuff. I've re-recorded it about 3 - 4 times since then, and made big changes every time. This is version 5!

More ideas! I'm just rolling them out!

Is it possible, on "My Home" page, to only have snippets, of what you have posted. Like if you search in Google, and it gives you about 500 characters. It would save my scrolling finger, when i'm going to see what someone's written about a song/post i've made.

It makes it especially difficult, as i wrote quite a lengthy biography, that is always at the top, so i have to scroll past it every time i want to see if anyone's replied to a song/post!

It would be good for there to be a search feature on here, so that you can type in keywords, and all the threads with those words in the title/text come up. This would be useful, for people like me starting up a thread like this, so that i can find out if a similar thread has already been posted, and therefore depletes the need for me to make the thread. Also, it saves trawling through pages of threads, to find something that you want to read.

Anyone else agree? Is there already a search feature that i've missed?
