Shades of Blue



 Genre: Experimental

Get Flash to see this player.

I wrote this song while i was in Buenos Aires, Argentina and i bought a nylong strong argentinian guitar while i was there and for some reason when i picked up the guitar the chord i would always initially play would be a minor chord. i thought that to be a small phenomenon, so with that being said with this song i began with a d minor thought and expanded on that for the song to be based around different tones of a D chord, it goes form major to minor and around and back again.

the drum beat, which i think is great in its own respect goes for 8 measures and near the end sort of dances around the speakers and creates a sort of whirlwind of sound.

its a short tune incoroporating some electronica beats and some soft guitar

lemme know what you think!

cool track
this is really nice, i could see this on a record before a more upbeat song (coming right out of it). i also seem to play a minor chord first. nice job, guitar sounds good; intonation, tone. usually those vacation purchases end up hung on the wall or become a gift (like my ukulele).

and nicely done. Wish it went on longer. Like the way the guitar pans into the middle of the mix just before the drums kick in, and then pans back just before the end. Nice tone from the guitar (and, of course, nice playing). Downloaded. Sweet.

the role
of the guitar was sort of the main part of the piece and then once i added the percussion it sort of took a different turn so with the panning i tried to emphasize the drums a little more ... thanks for the listen and the comment i really appreciate it !

Nylon Strings vs Electronic Beats
This was a cool little tune. So simple, but I get the prize for the shortest song. 1992 beat you by at least 4 seconds!

Now I need to hear more of your stuff to see what all the hype is about!
