Description
Had the basic riff going on in my head so I put it down last Sunday and well again it took on it's own shape over the week.
I did an etching called night traveller that I dug up from my past and I based the tune on this image. I think I have listened to it to the point where I can't hear it anymore ...
Thanks for listening .

Lyrics
Inspired by something I read.....

I keep walking
Through the bush
And I pass death
I can almost touch
And I hide my eyes
From the light

And there's rain and thunder in my soul
I'm a traveller in the night
I'm a night traveller

I call again on the dark
A place where ghosts
whisper in the night
I'm a guide to this labyrinth
A traveller in flight

I'm alone with myself
In the company of trees
And the darkness
Is faithful and true to me
And the light hides all that is real

I'm a night traveller
There's rain and thunder in my soul
There's a madness in my whisper
I'm a monster out of control

I look into the stream
A ghostly reflection
Troubled expression
Stars between stormy skies

I'm a night traveller
Rain and thunder
Rain and thunderIn my soul

Traveller,
Myself
Trees in the dark
Travel

Extraordinary guitar tones start this off! Smooth and expressive vocal and with urgency at various points that gives it variety. Nice boppy drums. Will you be posting the lyrics? Love what you do with the guitar around the 2 to 2.30 mark. Love your work, Stan!
gadzooks said 1882 days ago (March 4th, 2012)
Good morning

... well, it's morning here. Thanks Philip for always being there with your ears and your words. I had fun on this ... a little obsessive with the mix ... I struggled. I had fun pulling out my cry baby wa wa peddle and plugging my jazz master into a fender hot rod tube amp with some reverb and miced the cone with a sure 58 and got a nice warm tone.
Cheers

Setup
Interesting setup. I usually just plug straight into the computer (via a Line6 UX2 interface) and fiddle with GB guitar tones - but the sound you get on this one is making me think miking an amp may give something different...

Just cookin'
Stan, listen no more. It is our turn, now. Multi level guitar work is just cookin' on this. Drums are great, too. Sophisticated, contemporary offering that oozes quality. Another gadzooks D/L for the playlist. Thanks, Peter.

Thanks for always listening ... I really enjoy working on the drums. I tend to spend a fair bit of time at the start moving and placing bits here and there. Had fun with my cry baby in this. Thanks again for listening and for your comments.

Wicked good

Hey Richard
You are very consistent and that's a good thing. Peterborough? The trent ... very pretty there and quite artistic I hear. They have a nice art gallery. I use to spend my summers in Bancroft and we always went through there. Anyhow, thanks again for listening and for your comments!

Cool yet funky
I can tell you have a proper guitar, and a superior drum machine, or maybe a real drummer (!) It sounds lively and alive, a sound I aspire to. A good 'un.

Fabuloso. That opening groove is just too cool. There's no going wrong once that's set up. Love the insouciant vocal delivery. The groove around 3:00 --- you could sit on that for awhile, yeah. Some wild chords in there. Daring, fun, grooving tune. Excellent artwork, too.

Of course..
the music and the vocals are a perfect fit. Some amazing sounds from your playing but I've got to say your crybaby singing is really impressive. You hold nothing back, not in your art or your music. Thanks.

Hip track. Cool etching. I totally dig using visual art to inspire music. (I did a series of piano solos based on drawings of 13 Masks in 2007.) Thanks for sharing this. Kind of a traveling song, would be a great tune to hear while driving down the long road ahead. Especially at night.
