A shot of my messy studio, a small room, but it's quiet in there!

Bill...are those marimbas in the photo. You mentioned you had a Xylophone, but that looks like a marimba. Xylophones are small.

No, It's just the biggest xylophone they make. A marimba goes about 3 or 4
octives lower. They both have wooden or those fiberglass blocks. I've been
using it like a marima by playing all the parts as low on the thing as i
can. The real small ones with the metal blocks are glockenshpiels (probably
spelled that wrong), but also used in many Les Baxter tunes. He always had
that BIG orchestra going (like I wish I had access too!).

Tiki Bill..

Hey! Congrats on getting hitched! I 'm pretty sure I sat next to you guys at the wreck bar Friday. I wasn't very social at the moment, I was pretty hung over at the time and concentrating on trying to get some food into my body and keeping the bar from spinning out from underneath me. Anyway, You guys looked like a happy couple. I have been happily married for 15 and I contribute that to me learning to bite my tongue, alot, and never letting the sun set on a...... discus ion. It ain't easy bra, but stick with it! Love your music and look forward to hearing the other nine. Glad to see the ranks of the Florida Ohana growing.
