*** PLEASE NOTE: TEMPO IS ACTUALLY 195.89 bpm ****

And now for something a bit happier!

This template is actually a new performance of a song from a band I used to play in in the early '90s. I fancied playing along to something for a template rather than playing blind as I usually do. Thanks to variances in technology over the last 20 or so years, the tempo of the guide track ended up being located at 195.89bpm once I'd got it all lined up. Unlikely the original song was actually at that tempo. I'm guessing 2" Reel-To-Reel multitracks using SMPTE to drive an Atari 1040 weren't *quite* as accurate as these days!

And I'm the original performer on the song so I'm only doing a cover of myself! Mind the switch from straight to swing at 1:48.

Anyway, I know it sounds a bit Country and Western or Rockabilly, but the original song was a nice happy, poppy song. But don't let that guide you!

Enjoy.
