Slow down, you move too fast

…you got to make the morning last
just kicking down the cobblestones
looking for fun and feelin’ groovy
Hello lamppost,
What cha knowing?
I’ve come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in’ doo-doo,
Feelin’ groovy.

Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.

Simon and Garfunkel, The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)

Don’t you just love that song? All fresh and bubbly and oh so sixties.

But that’s not what this post is about. Instead, I wanted to use the first line of the song to talk about Capo. What a wonderful idea.

Take a song. Slow it down. Change pitch if you want. I haven’t done much with it as yet, I only have a trial version, but for sure I’m going to get the real thing. Capo is doing with music what Ribbit is doing with voice. All possible because we live in a digital age.

My thanks to Chris Messina for the heads-up.

[Disclosure: While I have nothing whatsoever to do with Capo, I am for sure involved with Ribbit.]

  1. While this looks super easy to use, I feel I’d be doing you a major disservice if I didn’t point you the way of Audacity

    This is to professional audio software as Gimp is to Photoshop. In other words, not quite as fully featured, not quite as mature, not quite as as usable, but definitely getting there. And open source.

  2. Two points:

    1) Simon & Garfunkel – Awesome! i’m currently listening to their CD now

    2) I haven’t used Capo but i have used Audacity. Really good tool, will look into Capo thou!.


  3. Wow! Thank you… after spending a long night with two couples from Calcutta in Singapore… I am feeling groovy – actually I am dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep! You are a kindred soul – stay happy!
