FIRST OFF: The title is in Latin. It is pronounced "ah-MEE-kos koom oom-BRYE" (it is classical Latin, not clerical/church), and it means "Friends with Shadows"

Update: thanks to NG now allowing the replacement of files, you guys get the remastered version! Look for others!

Anyway, I started this piece yesterday, and was proud of the way it was turning out. I finished the latter half of the song today, and better modified the drop (to my liking, that is).

I am pleased with the result. Remember... We can all be friends with shadows.

Song's good, I quite enjoyed it. It came across as pretty professional!

Too bad for the title though. The preposition "cum" comes in default with an ablative. This means you would have to say 'umbris' if you meant 'shadows' and 'umbra' if you meant shadow. Also, the plural nominative of 'amicus', is 'amici'. The version you used is the accusative. Which would be weird, because we're supposed to be friends with shadows, which would make it the predicative nominal, and therefore it would get the first case. Amici cum umbris.

Reali-tGlitch responds:

My Latin is definitely not very good. What if it were saying it as in "I HAVE friends with shadows"? Would that make the use of 'amicos' more acceptable?
