Hello all and Season’s Greetings. What a nice place we have here! I have been an infrequent visitor over the past couple of years (shameful!) I haven’t been playing much and recording has been difficult. However I got a heads-up from Richard re the new Community and thought I’d pop over and post a tune.
It’s based on a few feelings/observations I had during the first UK lockdown (whenever that was). I’ve posted an instrumental version and a version with a few vocal lines.
Recorded using - Fender telecaster > Stone Deaf Tremotron > Apogee Element 24 > Logic
Good to see you here! That was excellent: great writing, playing, and production.
Loved the vibe of the song, and in my monitoring headphones it sounded spacious and expansive. I liked it with the vocal. Gotta say I was really wanting a searing Maggot Brain style solo to hit somewhere in middle before returning to the more laid back groove. Maybe around 1:27. It’s a great track as it stands, but man, I think that would fit.
Oh how I’ve missed you and your music Steve. You are one of my favourite flavours. I’ve been sitting here with my hp on, transported to a place where someone else understands, speaks my language. What a gift you are.
Thanks for all the lovely comments and the constructive feedback, I did have a short solo in the tune but removed it as it wasn’t quite right. I may revisit and see if I can come up with something, it won’t be searing though (I’m with Batwoman on that score).
I’ll be having a mooch around the community this evening after I’ve taken my daughters to see Spider-Man. I’m sure there’s a lot of good stuff to listen to.
