What's going on with Maynard's Groovy Bible Tunes, from day to day...
I'm working hard towards a new CD - 14 songs that haven't been on a 'major' CD before (one or two have appeared on the Easter / Christmas compilation CDs) - and every song is either a new recording or a re-mix with better software (& techniques).
As part of this process, "It was dark" (based on Genesis 1, the first creation account) has been remixed. It was one of my better recordings anyway, but I think I've improved it! You can listen on the jukebox - and the new version is in the store.
The new store version is a 320kbps version (or 384kbps if you get the .wma file). What does that mean? It means there's more data per second, so a better sound. I'm working towards all the store downloads being at this rate.
At last - the first public results of the recording session with some of the children from our HotShots Club! Click this link for a reminder of what happened...
The online version of "Click - He's the Image" has been updated with this new recording - and I think it's great. Well done kids!

"I don't need no lottery" is a new song - not yet properly recorded, but here's the YouTube version from HotShots 2009:
Yes - I'm having a great time. I've done one week at "Backpackers" in Chesham, Bucks (UK), and I'm half way through our very own "HotShots" here in Frogmore, St Albans.
We've been singing two new songs at HotShots - both about TREASURE, since that's our theme.
"It's treasure" is a bouncy general song, based around Philippians 3:8 (and its the first time I've managed to get an F major chord into a song in D - nice!).
"Where's your treasure?" is a bit more unusual, and specifically themed to our 4-day series with verses for each day. One day (...) I'll get them onto the website - and you can enjoy them too!
Jade (who gave a false email, so I can't get back to her) posted this comment:
"Hi Everyone i am commenting on this Website because at our school its Great for Worship. But I would mention not the bit in the middle 'welcome to maynardsgroovytunes.co.uk' anyways otherwise its Great!!!"
That "bit in the middle" is there as a 'watermark', let me explain: I'd love to make it possible for the whole song to be heard without interruption - but that would mean that some people would copy the files and break my copyright. So I'm sorry - the bit in the middle that interrupts it (and removes a bar of music also) will have to stay.
Why not ask your teachers to get a CD or two? Then you can sing along to the whole songs
