I'll provide mobile phone ringtones for anyone who's interested!

I bought this album new in 1989 (£5.99!) and picked this particular track because I thought I might get two birds with one stone: Eye Know by De La Soul and Peg by Steely Dan - the main sample on which the De La Soul version is based. The lyrics are harder in Eye Know; the chords are harder in Peg.

I ended up layering this in Audacity. It gave me the opportunity to embellish it a bit but it means the video is supplementary. It also gave me the opportunity to whistle again. Roger Whittaker need not be concerned.

Once again, performed on £18 worth of Mahalo.

I have posted details of changes I have made to the setup of my u30 here: http://tinyurl.com/ncpuqb
