Description
My first submission for a long time! This really is just a test of my new software (Mixcraft 6) but I think it's still a nice piece of music.

Restful guitar. The bass kicks in well. Slow lead on the right works - calm, but the fuzzy tone gives a bit of edge to it. Good arrangement, good playing, good recording - much enjoyed!

That first lead (or is a second rhythm?) guitar that comes in at the one-minute point is so far to the right that I thought it was playing in another room down the hall. I guess that demonstrates the power of your new mixing software in action : )

The music aptly evokes the theme of solitude. There's a difference about solitude in our contemporary times. In the past it would have been one person playing a melancholy song on single instrument; today it can be one person playing multiple tracks as you have done here.

Lovely piece
Very cinematic in that I can easily picture an individual sitting somewhere alone, either playing a guitar or just contemplating some inner or outer vista ;-) I'm sorry there's no d/l available: I would have. Cheers.

This
is very dreamy. It calls to mind a southwestern landscape that goes on and on as far as the eye can see. I think it would support a plaintive lyric or some kind of American Indian Flute solo. Nice. Thanks.

This could be something
It's a cool demo indeed. Can't wait to hear something nice and polished with some vox, but I quite enjoyed this track as is, too.

Really great to see you again Adam.

Beautifully played.
Nice moody piece of music, very much enhanced by the subtle playing.

Midi
Thanks KC, the bass is a VST midi track, glad you like it as I tend to struggle to get a good bass sound.

Neat vibe, neat groove...
Very thick tones all around. I like the acoustic guitar sound. Is it direct? The whole track has a very 'songlike' feel, just waiting for brooding vocals of some kind. Nicely subtle organ bits in the background...

I imagine this one growing over time and being revisited. Very round tone on that bass.
ajnorth said 1665 days ago (December 6th, 2012)
Thanks
Yes the acoustic is direct in. sounds much better than i thought it would. I'm getting more tempted to develop this into a full song now.

Nice acoustic riff to kick things off and anchor the piece, Adam. Some tasty lead and a well developed build up. Quality, atmospheric music. Thanks, Peter.

I teach my 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders how to do loop compositions in Mixcraft 5. For the money it's a great DAW.

Nice changes and solid playing.
