You're welcome! A pity, they don't let me post my (English) review on .com.

Unbelievable: I've wanted to post a review for the "Golden Ghosts" single on Amazon.de as well and they don't let me do that either. Obviously you must have purchased items worth 50 Euros or more within one year and I was just within that time limit, when I wrote the last review, but not this time.
I avoid buying on Amazon as much as possible for me (without a credit card) anyway and now I know another time why...

Whoooow!!!

What's next? Vinyl? Deluxe edition with video and bonus tracks? Does European and Japanese versions differ?

I marked the review on amazon.de as "useful", but I have no clue why it doesn't show "one person finds this review useful".

About Amazon,I guess it takes time.


I guess next step is having my musician back after his music school is finished (soon) and record something with both of us, so the whole thing doesn't sound as "just a demo-tape".

I'm proud to have at last something out (sold digitally, but the real disc are not in stores and stuff). The sinsin is detent, the songs are good, and I think lyrics are the highlight of it (at leaast in French). nut now, let's be honest : There is a littledefault on two tracks (I nearly screwed up a word in the lyrics at the end of track 3 and tracck 4), I hae not studied graphism (the CD-cover is not well centered), so there's small default aht of course don't prevent anyone to listen and like the music, but I have to be absolutely professional next time, if I want to climb one or two steps higher (which I intend).

Your support is precious, because it's so nice and agreeable to me, but also because it's a kind of proof that I exist as an artist, which is very important (today, to hire you to a show in their bars or concert rooms, owners don't listen to your music at first ; they begin by looking on the Internet, if people speak about you, if you have followers on Facebook and so....).

By the way, to support artists affected by Covid-19, Bandcamp is waving his revenue shares this Friday, from midnight to midnight, Pacific time.

If you're interested in buying music there (not necessary me ); tomorrow is the time.

Bandcamp is quite an ethic platform, the only one (with Soudcloud, but Soundcloud is a streaming platform) where artists don't have to pay to put their song online to sell them.

Special day on Bandcamp !

The company is waving his revenue share today, in order to help artists considering Covid pandemy.

I put old demos (I still pay them live) on the website today.

For those who can't access Bandcamp, contact me.

I had a radio interview via the phone for a local radio the day before yesterday with a crew that is just getting started.

It was nice, and in a way it was cute, because it was so obvious they were pure beginners.
Well, they are very nice, and it's such a good idea to let unknown local dudes like me find their way and the radio and get a chance to meet their public. We had a good time.
It will be aired in September. I'll let you know.

Soundcloud is getting quite well, lower these last days than previously, but the song Amarres is very close to reach 4000 plays.

Yeah, while listening tonight, I noticed I started all my answers by "alors" (= "so").
I had noticed the interviewers were always saying "d'accord" (= "OK") late June, when we had the phone interview.

Oh, by the way, I translated Amarres in English :

Moorings

To stop living this routine you seem to be tired of
To live another life and see yourself under a different light

Leave, leave if you have no moorings
Or if you canít stand our longitude anymore
I hope that across the seas
There will be neither bitter days nor nights full of uncertainty

To finally widen too fleeting a smile
To no longer hide and to crack the shell

Leave, leave if you have no moorings
Or if you canít stand our longitude anymore
I hope that across the seas
There will be neither bitter days nor nights full of uncertainty

We hope youíll discover everything youíre looking for
And youíll find success in all of your projects

Leave, leave if you have no moorings
Or if you canít stand our longitude anymore
I hope that across the seas
There will be neither bitter days nor nights full of uncertainty

The song is dedicated to the friend of mine and HNN member rainman.

16% on my kickstarter. It's a change compared to my usual projects, since it's not about music, but anyway, it's a highly interesting experience !

Currently 144%. I will be able to print more books, so I can have them on my merchandising stand, for example, if concerts start again someday.

Played live today.

I messed up Amarres, partly because I was disturbed by my detuned guitar (I had to retune after the song, don't know why it had detuned that quickly, I had tunes it just before the set), but I think I played Golden Ghosts quite well.

If we manage to get the video from the guy who was filming, I'll put it on the web.

Excellent, looking forward to seeing those!

Btw, if you have tunning issues, there might be a couple of reasons.

If the strings are freshly put on, a good method is to tune up a strings, then bend it a lot (or just grab it and pull it away from the headstock, yank it a bit) and then tune up again. Then repeat the process until it stays in tune after the bending/pulling. It can take a while but the results are great, you don't have to wait for the strings to settle.

Also, it's a good idea to greese the grooves in the nut with a graphite pencil (the tradditional type) as sometimes strings get a bit jammed in there, which often causes tunning issues. It also helps avoid unwanted buzzing.

Lastly, having the guitar set up by a professional from time to time helps a great deal.

Hope that helps and sorry if these are all obvious points, I hope I didn't come across patronising.

Oh, yes, the I retuned after the second song, so the 12 or 13 others sounded correct.

I was so concentrated on Golden Ghosts that the English accent went quite bad, but you people don't seem very disturbed when I mess up the accent, and the playing was good, so, if I get the video, I'll put it on the net.

I think every person has an "accent". It's just nature. It's all about what the receipient person think about it and think what is different to her/his own speaking. Language and accent as well is just a way to communicate. It is even possible to communicate without spoken words.

It lasted perhaps an hour. It was a 14th July part in a village, held inside because of the weather. I found the village was very lively, for there were about 40 people, which is much, considering its 400 inhabitants.
