Great playing
I really dig the bassline here, very much and like the way it's played too. I found it a little distracting when the noodling guitar came in so far over on the left ear, and like it better when the other guitar parts were closer to the center.

This is a really atmospheric, moody piece of prog. I liked it quite a bit. The creepy flute synth was especially cool.

thanks!
Hi Lisa,
Good to hear from someone in my home state!
I appreciate the comments. I tried to get a Chris Squire sound from my bass (even though it's a Fender Jazz instead of a Rickenbacker). I'll revisit that guitar track you referred to. Thanks for pointing that out.

I like this
I'm diggin' the tune. You've come really close to Chris Squire' sound, impressive. Oh wow you really did throw some yes in there. Very cool piece of music man, and like ledebutant said great playing.

yes to the Yes
Thanks for the kind words. I'll be the first to admit I'm no Chris Squire, but he and Geddy Lee have probably influenced my bass playing more than anyone. Here's a quiz...can anyone name the Yes song and album that's teased toward the end of this song?

You...
...are correct! IMHO, that's Yes's most underrated album. Some of Squire & Howe's best work, I think.

Almost There
very good tune - well done - tighten up the performances a tad and this tune would really sail - great to hear the Geddy Lee sounding bass tones - song reminds me of bits of Chris Squire's solo album titled "Fish" - fish something or other - neverthe less a great 'album' & your song a diamond in the rough.

I'm fairly new to music (playing bass since June of '04 and guitar since '05), but have learned quickly...and still have a ton to learn. I'm the singer and bass player in a Christian rock band, Risen Son. Our debut CD, New Beginning, was released in ... [see more]
