Making music with two tape recorders as a kid,

layering up a naive multi-track,

with my Les Paul Copy

And Marie’s acoustic…

And my vocal strained through

a built-in mic…

a wicker wear washing basket

beaten with wooden spoons,

providing paltry percussion.

And thirty years later

with my ejay system,

and my cool pro sampler,

I could lay down 16 tracks at once…

Such a beautiful enticing adventure,

but the state of the art

Is no better than the home-made,

If you don’t have the musical talent.

No matter how much you wish for it.
