Joel's Mad at Me, I think

Joel left on the 25th of August to pursue his dream of being a doctor and by all accounts, he seems to be having a great time. I decided that I would take the 12 or so songs that we had recorded and produce them myself. The idea is that I would have a CD finished by the time he came back in December for the Holidays. I choose "Anna" as the first song and I intend to go alphabetically through the list. Some of the songs like "Smells Like" and "Caroline" are done and I won't have to mess with them.
Anyway, I recorded a guitar part that I liked pretty well and my first ever keyboard part (a B-3 organ played through an overdriven Marshall). You can check them out here. The organ probably won't come in until the first chorus and I think the guitar part is ok where it is. I also intend to add some sort of percussion (either shaker or cabasa) to the choruses and outro. Whether or not to do anything vocally is questionable.
Here's why I think Joel's mad at me. He tryed to call us using Skype last week and we were gone to dinner so we missed his call. I called him back at his hotel room in St. Martin. I told him what I had done and that I would send him the file. I've been very busy at work and he sent me an email a couple of days ago wanting to know why I hadn't sent the file. Well, for some reason, I woke up at 1:30 or so Wednesday morning and I mixed down the file and put it on the website and sent him an email with the link. I haven't heard from him since. It may just be that he's been busy too and hasn't had time to check it out. We'll see. Let me know what you think of it.
