Here's this week's track. Enjoy!
EDIT: posted again below after I added an acoustic guitar.
Debuting my new guitar build, bridge humbucker, in what seems to be becoming my go-to tone:
Thanks for the track.
It was fun to work at it; hope you enjoy too!
Great track, thanks! Pulled out the ol Les Paul for this one...
@knh555 : sweet strat, sweet melodies! Love your overdriven sound; the two guitars go well together.
@ghostchord : you went quite well with the chord changes. May I suggest: if you revisit your opening part I would have like more legato playing better, and some notes you could have hold a little longer.
@warthog : you nicely took the notes from the piano in the opening part. The way you play the melody reminds me a little to Mike Oldfield. Like that! The last section is great.
@knh555 That was just beautiful... loved the mix and the tone of the guitars. They really sang.
@ghostchord Great note choices and I really liked the tone and the build up in the middle very dynamic. Your bends are very good, just add some vibrato.
@udoering Tasty playing...Really enjoyed the pre chorus middle part with the 2 guitars. Really sounded like a slide. Then the chorus hit and wow! great tones.
Love the piano parts Thanks for the track Mike. Got this out of it....
@Thoughtfree nice choice to edit the track to your liking. The tone and your playing was very enjoyable.
@NWinther you gave the song space to breath by letting the beautiful piano solo at the beginning. The rest of the song was a great mix of your smooth (almost reversed sounding) line and your gut wrenching leads during the chorus.
Thanks, great track!
Tried some stuff like out of phase and some chorus + reverb, then different chorus/flanger + reverb stuff with another guitar track. Also filed and sanded the nut a bit more this morning.. and gave some relief from the truss rod. Maybe better.
Thanks to Rob Hajacos for the fiddle.
Very nice. The playing and name fit the weather nicely here in Massachusetts today.
I decided it needed some acoustic guitar too to go with that lovely piano.
Here's mine with my newly modded squier strat.
Maybe it's just the way I hear things but E is the tone center. I know C# minor has the same notes but why even list a key?
^Yeah thought is as E major and went from there!
All the chord except for the Stairway like section, the key signature is E major, but my ear wants to hear this song end on C#m, the relative minor of E. So for me the tonal center would be C#m.
But screw modes, yes C#m is the tonal center and in a way, a safety net as you can play C# minor pent over the whole thing pretty much.
I'm going to play with the three minor scales that are derived from the E major scale, that would be the C# Aeolian minor, F# Dorian minor and G# Phrygian minor, or the vi, ii, and iii modes/scales. Then reducing the three scales to three minor pents, C#, F#, and G# minor pents, very colorful way to play.
