@SnarkyPlatypus Mind you, I have actually read “Black Beauty”.

@SnarkyPlatypus And that’s why in the 1980s onwards all their body hair fell out.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Grrr. I used to know this music shit. Heck, I could even tune a housemate’s violin before she went on stage. OK, that was 30 years ago…

@bernietb Indeed, but sadly it’s not that kind of thng I’m after. I need someone to figure out a (bad) piano arrangement for me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bernietb

@bernietb Oh audio production I know. My gap is the bit before that, translating the sounds in my head into a musical description.

Actually I do know a bit about music, just not how to operate the machines… what are they called… “instruments”. Quaint things, they are.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bernietb: @stilgherrian Does that matter? [Not really. I have Garage Band.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bernietb

Before adding “record a special song” to today’s plan, I probably should have remembered that I don’t actually know anything about music.
