Thanks for the offer of laying down the harp on the track Carlton, I'll sort out a wave file for you at some stage. How do I send it you? I've got hotmail which has something called skydrive where you can store big files?

Thanks for the friend invitation! I am glad to call you friend.  Thanks also for the comment on Electric Ride.  I tried to play it a couple of days ago and couldn't remember part of it.  Going to have to listen to it and figure it out again. See Ya!
