Ok... uh.... well..

I wrote and recorded this one yesterday.. a few things to know about it..

First off it is in mono.. being I am totally deaf in my right ear I get so tired of the music playing second fiddle to stereo imaging, on this one I said 'to heck with it'.. instead of guessing I know exactly what I put before you.. I tend to think Mono works great for a song like this.. hardly low tech.. I am using it by intent.. *L*

Secondly, if you do have a listen I would like to draw attention to the Bass.. working it out and performing it all the way through was fairly tedious as it isn't just standard 'boom boom'.

Thirdly, I'd like to know what people think about mono for a song like this.. would it really be that much better to you if it was in stereo, or does the musical point get across without it? This I really would like to hear thoughts on..

So without further adieu, in all it's obscure glory..

i like the atmosphere this song generates.

i think the recording quality is really good - im always jealous of how people managed to record so well.

As i have never put a bass line together in my life, i wont comment on that other than saying it thought it was good.
well done.

Hi Almann..

Thanks for the ear and thoughts..

To me saying the 'atmosphere' was set is the best of words..

I don't have a clue what I do musically.. but I do set out to create an atmosphere with each and every piece..

I never think of what kind of song, or how to write it.. instead I transpose myself into a 'feeling' and then try and capture it with instruments..

I'm a musical illiterate.. never had a lesson and couldn't tell you a B minor from a bumble Bee.. but I CAN use musical instruments to get a feeling out and hopefully have others knowing where I came from and take them along for the ride..

-----

Thanks again for the ear and time..

It sounds great as a mellow yet upbeat song. It reminds me of an updated version of music from the 40s and 50s (I think, maybe earlier). If you don't know what a B minor is then you're doing bloody well just on intuition. I notice that each part doesn't sound very complex, but you've used a lot of instruments to create the complexity.

I like it! :D

Check out my rubbish cover of Patience to see what someone who knows what a B minor sounds like lol.

Your song reminds me of something from the 30's or 40's. Very cool laid back vibe. Great job. 8)

Well, that one took me by surprise, although you've warned the listener !
How refreshing ! How beautiful ! Lovely progressions,very nice vocalharmonies..and good lyrics as well,fits the song !
The bassline is clever,good sense of damping the tones at the right place..becoming a part of the rythm, as it should.
Nice work :-)

Hi,

As you probably know usually I play bass and I always tend to listen the bass lines.

Your bass line is very interesting and it fits perfectly with the general mood of the song. In fact it would sound very good if it was played with a tuba. Sometimes it tends to following the rhythmic pattern but it sounds good.

It reminds to me to some Paul McCartney bass lines, one of the my favorite bass players and musicians.

Congrats!
