Hello folks,
I hope this one will be OK for the challenge. Played on Genos using a dedicated style and on board voices. Plus Harp Multi Pads

Hi Eileen. Well ABBA would have been pleased with that. Liked the introduction of the multi pad harp. Will have to use them on my Tyros 5. Gives the tune a lift. Enjoyed the powerful ending. The sounds were good gave the feeling of a Greek style. John

Hi Eileen,

I listened to the beginning of this and liked the 'straightforward' backing and simple bass line. And your 'repeating' piano (?) was a novel idea too. And then ...
At 1:10 in comes that amazing bass. A real 'WOW' factor that hit me fairly and squarely! What an amazing change to the sound you had up to this point. And then a change again at 2:10 by moving up a semitone, with a continuous 'staccato' guitar playing on every beat of the bar. And throughout the piece, what an interesting selection of voices, too.

I have to say, I think this is one of the best pieces I have heard you play! This September Challenge is coming up with some really inspirational music.

Hi Eileen,

A very nice cover of that classic ABBA number, the style and choice of voices were very good
and it all came together very well, I enjoyed listening to it very much,
