Hi Friends, I promise you nothing is going on between Julio and me, I recorded this one using an enhanced skiffle style, and beefed up the voices, hope you like it...Pam

Hi Pam,

Enjoyed your version very much. It's good to see you reaching out to new horizons. Before you know it, there won't be anything you'd be reluctant to try.

As they say on this side of the pond, "You go girl!!!"

Hi Pam.

Again, this was always going to be a difficult one, as Paul Simon almost talks his way through the lyrics.

So,.......as a comparison to the song, I thought it was a bit lacking, especially at the main hook of the song where it breaks before " Me & Julio " etc .

On the other hand, forgetting about the original, ..what you did here was quite a good little song in its own rights,......style a little busy in places, but a nice lively performance, and some good guitar work.

This is one you could develop as an "Original" for a future project ??

Kind Regards
Gordon

Hi Pam
I hope it wasn't behind the bike sheds too!
I thought the rhythm was great although the bass on the Mp3 boomed a bit (but that could be my settings). I've never heard the song before but it's a lively one for sure and you played it well
Well done
Cheers
Spike

Hmmmm!

Rarely listen or comment on your tunes Pam, not really my kinda stuff, but thought I'd have a listen to this one as Paul Simon is a favourite artiste of mine. Oh dear,what a disappointment.
Sounds like another rushed first time run through.
I wonder if you are familiar with the original?
If you are you must hear that the melody line doesn't sound right nor does the phrasing. There are several chords missing and you seem to be chasing the beat in the style. For someone with a lifetime of musical experience it really does sound like a beginners effort with the lead guitar sounding dreadful.

Sorry, its a miss for me


Regards

Will

Hi Spike, Thanks for the comments, and to Will, I didn't expect you to like it you never do. If I wanted it to sound like the original, I might as well buy the CD, this was my interpretation, not Paul Simons...Pam

As per what I said in other channel Pam, I like this rendition.
And Johnny, . . . nothing is happening ; Pam's husband is very jealous my friend.
