Someone mentioned Don's talent a few days ago. I have so much music on my hard drive, I don't know what to listen to anymore. Luckily, I can just type in Don Mason and pull them all up. Which is what I did.

He really IS very talented. It all comes together for him. Voice, playing, guitar emulation, picking songs that please the listener, presentation, personality.....and.....he's got good posture too!!!

I labeled my folder The Best of Don Mason and inserted the following favorite songs of mine that were posted over the years.

Loving Arms (If You Could See Me Now)
An Empty Glass
11 Months and 29 Days
Matchbox
That’s Alright, Mama
You’ve Got A Friend
Baby Doll
Burning Bridges
Mustang Sally
Stand By Me
The Thrill is Gone

Sorry Don....if you want any of them back, you have to make a hefty contribution to the "One Man Band Retirement Fund."

Great to see it's not only me that collect Don M's songs.
Don know I'm a long time BIG fan, and that I play his songs at the stereo when driving. bow

Means a lot to me, GJ! There are lots of better players and singers than I am, but no one is more appreciative of the opportunity to play music or has more fun doing it! smile

Don....perdoneme....I forgot to add "humble" to your description! And BTW, I'm nominating you for a place in the Synthzone Hall of Fame. Each nominee gets awarded a golf club that, no matter how you hit it, it only scores "holes in one."

You forgot to mention knowledgeable. He knows much about his boards, as well as many other things.

My pleasure Don.

Your heart for the music is mirrored well in your performances,
and besides that, there is only one and only Don M, no other play it like you do.

Tried to copy your eminent guitar playing, but I'm not even close.
Most be something wrong with my keyboards ... wink

We must be careful not to inflate his ego too much – you know how he is.
