Some real shredding guitar here. Interesting counterpoint between the high pitched distorted lead and the more acoustic sounding bed - and then the pizzicato strings. Inventive!

I can't shred
Not for toffee, or any other incentive, but I like the sustain that high distortion gives you. The strings are one of the usable bits of the iPad GB app, which is aimed at children, I suspect. Thanks you very much for listening, Mr Rat.

A nice little musical treat here. The chord progression reminds me of some video game soundtracks I've heard. This is smooth, and strangely sounds a little tropical to me - not sure if that makes any sense but I enjoyed this just the same - thanks!

Sub - tropical, maybe

The breezy strings, the stringy breezes? Who knows. I'm just glad you liked it, Mr S.

Made me think of surf music. It would work great as a soundtrack for a ultra long tube ride at J-Bay. A tube ride so long that it ends up in the far east towards the end :-) Nice one, guys. Thanks, Peter.

Sprinkles title
It was a working title, but it fit so I kept it. It is a sort of surf music. The waves don't get very big in the Bahamas, so "sprinkles" is somewhat apt. Thanks for listening, Peter.

Reminds me of..
Swaying trees, reincarnated as guitars in harmony with each other and then to hear a crashing wave in the middle and then the pizzicato strings.. quite innovative.. I liked it

I like the interpretation
it fits very well with what goes on in my head, and on the islands. Thank you for your kind words.

Guitars
I've acquired a new to me Yamaha since this was recorded, which will add to the fun. Thanks for listening, Vic.

What they said...
...and then some. I can only add that I love the bass counterpoint to all that great guitar work above. Somehow, too, this captures sprinkles quite well...on an otherwise blustery day. That "wash" around 1:58 or so cool, followed by something that reminds me of the Caribbean. What a pleasant listen.

That's great
coming from an accomplished composer like yourself. I've been working hard to arrange my noodles, and make each instrument interesting in its own right. Having a fantastic percussionist really helps - David knew exactly what to do when I said, "It needs tymps." The drums have certainly raised my game. Thanks for listening, Paul.

Happy sprinkles
King Crimson on vacation. Nice sustain you're getting there. Is that a gong? Quite pleasant piece. You've been prolific as of late. Keep 'em coming.

Perfect!
Krim on holiday sums it up - Matte Kudesai sans vocals. Adrian was in Freeport at the end of a Prog Cruise, but forgot to stop and say hello. One day... Tons more on the way, Les. We've been very, very busy, and it's all exciting. Thanks for stopping by.

LIke the art
the music goes with it so well, some cool riffin and melodic chord changes I was floated right out of my chair, like the heavy change towards the end and the plickity plitkity very cool!

It's a usable bit from the iPad GB, but even so there's a lag. Shame, as I like the sound very much. Still, use what you have, I always say. For more things I always say, please go to my site: "Things I Always Say". Seriously, thank you for your observations. They are much appreciated.
