Thank you for that kind comment!Sounds good tintag.
I love how that part works. IMO - it's very 'cinematic'.From 1:15 to 2:40 you've laid down a track that, while very cool in and of itself, doesn't fit the theme of the rest of the song parts. It would be beautiful in a separate composition but detracts rather than adds to the piece currently being worked on. This is just my opinion. I write music so I understand how it works. I'm just sayin'
Thank you - I respect your opinions, and one of the reasons I am on this forum is because are so many diverse viewpoints here...I agree that it's a wonderful part but I just don't think it's a match for the rest of the piece. You've got something very "Eric Johnsonish" going and then you introduce something Satch, Paisley or Vai might come up with. It's beautiful but could be used to better purpose in it's own piece. I'm saying nothing negative. I know it's easy to go beyond the limits of a songs "sweet spot". You've got a great mind for quality guitar parts. I was just saying separating the part in question from the rest of the piece could result in two pieces that exceed the first! I'm not dissing you. I'm on your side. You're coming up with great stuff. I'm saying that great stuff doesn't automatically fit with other great stuff. Your mind is cranking out killer guitar parts. Your "self" is trying to use them all at once. Don't dismiss or delete the wonders you come up with but, instead, learn to pick and choose between what truly works best and what should remain in the "my stuff" folder for use at another time.
Thanks, Rene! I was having trouble with the guitar at first. It was harsh and uninspiring, so I stopped fighting it and started experimenting with the controls. Almost by accident I realised that if I turned the volume and the tone way down, it sounded much sweeter. I also dialed in more compression than I usually use, and less drive...This is superb recording, and your guitar playing is excellent.
I love the tone of your guitar.
A good description... I could never write a real song, but I have plenty of fun scribbling away in GarageBandI'm hearing this as a stream of consciousness that takes us along for a short ride through whatever you were thinking about at that time. Nice departures in appropriate places where it was just time to move on from the previous thought. It doesn't strike me as a song at all. It is simply something you laid down. Spontaneous, raw, melodic, worth the trip. Nice job.
Marc Bonilla has written a huge amount of TV and movie scores. This cut is from his first album 28 years ago. Among the very best players I've ever heard. Keith Emerson is playing piano on this track as well...That is well put - some of my favourite musicians are scorewriters - and of course I can't sing!
