Strong melody. I like the percussive attack on the guitar. Lots of energy.

well
id say that somebody must have had a good time putting this together. it's get some really positive and uplifting energy pushing it along, it sounds. nice job noodling. i'm just wondering how long it took you to put this together. i was also wondering if this tune had anything to to do w/ Alannah's "ur amazing" (haven't crossed ref'd in my mind just recall the title was spelled out in the same fashion)

regardless, i enjoyed it as a side dish to my cup of java this morning. way better than the buttary fat sugar role i was gonna have. lol

thanks for sharing, Warren!

Short and long of it
The short answer is: not anywhere close to as long as you work on your complex pieces.

When approaching a recording, a new song mostly arrives in one of three ways. 1) A melody pops into my head and I develop it into a composition. 2) Something grows out of noodling on the fretboard. 3) A word or lyrical phrase suggests some music to go with it. This piece grew out of the noodling process.

How long did it take to make? That's hard to say with precision. The bulk of it - the structure and main guitar lines - were recorded over a few days. The accompaniments (synths and bass) and the percussive tweaks took another week. It probably adheres to that classic 80/20 rule of thumb, where 80 per cent of the project was done in 20 per cent of the time, but the final 20 per cent took the longest to accomplish.

That said, I'm not a perfectionist. Once I get the various tracks melded into a cohesive whole … and the most egregious flaws have been fixed … that's it. I figure any more twiddling will start to drain life out of it.

I haven't heard Alannah's song of the same name (but now I will have to check it out). The title came when, in the middle of recording, I sent that phrase as a text message to my wife.

It's always fun to just see what comes out of a guitar. I like the fact that you have a repetitive base to work from so that it's not just all over the place. Interesting variety of sounds you get in the guitar. Much enjoyed.

You have a unique approach
so many different things going on here.

A bit of surf, some Mexican maybe but altogether joyful!

The Ventures influence
A Mexican Surf group called The Misadventures - that sums it up.

No doubt my approach to guitar was influenced by The Ventures. Way back when I listened to that "Walk, Don't Run" album until I wore it out .. so I'm sure that vibe has been inculcated into my musical psyche : )

Born in a Minnesota blizzard, I'm now residing in a coastal heat of Brooklyn, New York City. I recorded my first original composition as a teenager using a reel-to-reel tape recorder back in 1967, and I'm still finding it a creative challenge... [see more]
