Description
Hectorious: Bass, Rhythm Guitar, and laptop key board.
GB program Drum loops.

Thanks for all the positive Comments on my earlier demo.
This is a New mix of the idea. It still not 100% but I feel that it flows better.
There might be some other versions of this idea coming soon.

really nice
This is the first mix of this I've heard. You bass playing is top notch, and the mix/arrangement is fantastic. Great with headphones.

Thank you
In this song I just kept the bass playing in the pocket. I did the same playing the solo on bass. I'm not a not-tie soloist. When it comes to soloing on bass I like keeping it simple. Its a hard thing to hold back when you want to say so much. But the space between notes is so beautiful and that my friend is a groove.

I now see the light...
This doesn't need any lyrics its heartfelt, emotional yet balanced, great listen...This just gets better and better !!!
Hectorious said 3808 days ago (April 23rd, 2007)
Thats What I
Was striving for in this version of the song.
Since I wasn't blessed with a singing voice.
I want the bass and synth to sing for me:0}

I would still like to hear vocals and even a lead guitar player to take a shot at it.
I really think that would be cool.

Thank You Again for coming back!!!!!

I like both of 'em...
THIS one has a sweetness to it, and is probably the more 'professional' mix... particularly sweet and vocal-like line on the bass... Sounds like it comes from the heart...

The mix as a whole is very even, very silky... I like the sound on the snare in this context...it really works for this tune...

I still hear almost-words, and I think that's a good thing... It doesn't sound LACKING, it just sounds like it wants to sing...

Hectorious said 3808 days ago (April 23rd, 2007)
I'll respone to this one as I did
for Wounded Tom. I also have to say Ed that I look forward to your comments. Johns (ktb) has said this to you many time and he's right. Your comments are very insightful and inspiring. As always I thank you for such kind comments and lending me your hear:0}

YEs yes
Simpeler is betterer. Ok what Im saying is you are right Not having a note fill everytime space makes a difference. Being a bass player myself I need to remember that. I have a habit of needeing a note on every time fill possible . You are good great song what about lyrics for this huh!
Hectorious said 3808 days ago (April 24th, 2007)
Space is Key
for songs like these. Unfortunately I don't have the gift of writing words for songs. I find it hard just typing responses to comments:0} There always more that I want to say but I can't put it in to words. I rather just jam about it.

Thank you for coming back..

Smooth
It's like floating on little white clouds watching people wandering about doing their everyday stuff underneath me. The alternating synth is supporting the feeling of this.

Cool how you make the bass play the melody.

Would do good with a relaxed, laid-back vocal on top.

Yes and Thank you
I agree with you it could use a vocal or a lead sax part.

warmth
Very sweet and moving. I like the touch of synth that adds the techie brightness to it, a lnice counterpoint to all the tape warmth that just spills from the track. I am also a BIG fan of noodling bass leads, I think they are very underutilized....nice job with it, it really drives the vibe.

Nice transition
with the drums and the soft synth. Like that soft guitar panning, the influx of electrical gizmo synth adds to it as well.

The chorus guitar sound is very delicately done here as well.

This is a very nice composition. The marching beat is very infectiously done, Catchy.

This tune is a radio grabber for sure.

Way to go indeed!

I'm not much of a guitar player but I did enjoy playing it on this piece. Hopefully in time I'll get better on the guitar as well. Thanks again for listening:0}

Sorry for the late...
...but, "better late than..."

Really into the depth between the layered textures. Lots of room. I'm hoping to be able to achieve this kind of effect as I get more into GarageBand.

Nice work, Hectorius. Flows beautifully. Percussion and chorus guitar are nice touches.
