Please read the original post below to understand what this project is:
Earlier this year I did an online collaboration with Mike Grande--a project that started in the Cakewalk "Songs" Forum.
Mike is a guitarist who writes instrumental music. This song is by him, and on the track he plays guitars, bass and drums.
My contribution was arranging and performing a full string section with GPO instruments.
Soon Mike will be releasing a CD of his newest material which will include this track, "A Walk in November."
It was a very gratifying experience to collaborate through the internet with Mike.
