It is an honor to have Jack as a part of the GPO Community!
What a delight! Absolutely magical. Many thanks for posting this - and it's great to know that we are in the company of such illustrious colleagues!
Would love to hear more of Jack's GPO pieces- please!
I'd also love to know Jack's method of working too. Does he use a notation program or a Sequencer/keyboard?
Jack, you have been emailing me this cool stuff for a long time, and I never knew of your experiences that Gary has told us about.
I was honored when you made your own upbeat version of Danny Boy after hearing my version on Gary's website.
I had no idea.
I am truly honored and so proud to have been able to help you with a few little questions.
