Description
A little bit ahead of the season :-)

I've had these two guitar tracks for a while without me really knowing what to do with them. Initially I was thinking about a third lead acoustic guitar, but at some point I wanted to hear how it would sound with a solo violin. Here is the result.

I have the impression that many of you get most probably every now and then : It should be possible to do this piece better. So I guess in the future, I'll give another try to better record and produce this.

I hope you enjoy. Thank you for listening.

Lovely piece Yves
This has a feel of longing, which is especially brought out by the addition of the violin on this. Greatly enjoyed it and you've done some very fine work on this--all comes together quite well! Michael

I like the way you're stretching yourself. I love the changes and the violin lines are very nice.

Stretching
Is EXACTLY the word Andrew ! Those guitar tracks weren't easy and I still think it can be improved, I was quite close to ask for a collab, but at some point I thought I should try now and then play something myself just to force myself to ... strech. This is really the word.

I can't thank you enough for your encouragement and support Andrew, thank you so much !

Snowfall
This is so beatiful on various levels. Great instrument choice, skilfully played guitar tracks and so realistic sound of virtual violin ... but above all the harmony and feel of the music is particularly good and fits perfectly the theme and title you chose.
Winter is one of my favorite seasons so you do not have to apologize for being ahead. The "snowfalls" have been greatly appreciated.
Take care

Heck Buddy...you
tempting fate or something ....I mean the autumn Music that is being posted is fine ....but "Snowfall" seems like tempting fate.......cracking track though,to say that it is depicting Winter it has a certain warmth to it as well....must be the log fire and whiskey.....oh,right,so this snowfall,it aint all bad afterall,bring it on!!

Nice track/post/piece.

Dreamy
I like that violin. (Despite all the vibrato.)

Ok, sometimes the violin plays something like a melody, but mostly it's just long lines. Pretty nice lines, but no theme that I can discern. In fact it seems to accompany the guitars, but they are not playing a melody either. So it's 3 minutes of arpeggiated chords and chord notes. Methinks something is missing from calling this a composition.

Hi Vic
Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment. I had the same doubts before and after reading your comment I listened to the song again and it definitely confirms. I can't thank you enough for your taking time to listen and provide your comments, there is a lot of food for thought for me. Many many thanks again.

A sense of melancholy...
Hi Yves. Nice mood piece that is enhanced by the addition of the violin. Good to hear you playing and recording some acoustic instruments. There is a sense of melancholy that the violin lines develop, almost like someone knowing winter is coming and being resigned to the fact. Thanks for the post, Peter.

great composition yves. two guitars and a violin works perfectly here. atmospheric and elegiac......depressing to think the cold weather is around the corner....and will be for another 9 months.
this song should be banned!

It's a very good winter song ...
I'm very glad that you put this out, yes, just as it is.

Sure, anything can be further polished and improved-upon, but that should never give you pause from releasing what you have.   I think that the concept of using a solo violin worked very well here, because the song needs to have a very sonically-distinct lead part.   Using long, legato phrases to contrast with the finger-work of the guitars is, I think, a prudent choice.

An atmospheric piece. The violin blends well with the guitars - they all have, for me, a somewhat trebly tone. Sort of melancholy and sort of not. A well constructed piece of music that suits the theme.

Very pretty Yves
just like the first snowfall of the season (I kind of feel sorry for those in warmer climes that they don't get that "first snowfall" thrill every year). This piece is delicate and delightful but, to me, just a touch too warm: it must be the fire and whiskey as Kenta suggests ;-)
Very nice Yves: thanks for the d/l which I will enjoy again while the snow falls (in a few weeks).

This is wonderful Yves
You very wisely played the midi violin keeping the stroke length and bow technique in mind - which is what makes it so emotional and authentic sounding. Beautiful melody and great recording.
