Lovely sound Bill
This reminds me of Traffic - probably the B3 and rolling guitar. I keep waiting for Steve Winwood to start singing. I'm a huge Traffic fan btw, so I mean this as a compliment.

A really nice production here Bill - everything is subtly done, and it is all "round" yet clear.

I like how you stretch....
There's a certain territory and style to the fingerstyle acoustic guitar that's just solidly yours...and then from time to time you reach for other elements, other rhythms, other approaches...

I think this comes across as a very fresh and rewarding step away from the familiar...

I like the way your picking works against the hand drum, and I love the B3 sound.... The subtle panning with reverb works for me, too, where a more radical panning thing would annoy me... The harmonics against the organ and hand drum are kind of cool, too...

I am so glad you mentioned about the slight panning. I started to pan using the full effect but then it sounded to drastic. Yap, it took away from the feel of what I was trying to do. I really appreciate what you spotted because I really felt the same way as well. I wanted to bring out the hammond organ effect, I thought that adding layers of the hammond is selected parts were I could sustain it would bring a bit more of the flavor. I guess I really got excited when I tested the sound in Logic after playing the fingerstyle part. It really struck me that the hammond was a no-brainer to use.

I am amazed Ed at how astute you are on this!

Thanks again !

Where's my baggies Bill
I wanna go boardin' too. And I want some more of that popcorn you got there in the bag man.

What a pleasant surprise to wake up to this morning. Up until now, all of you music I've had the pleasure of listening to has been pretty much traditional finger style music. Not a bad thing mind you and all of it flawlessly executed.

But this is in a whole different category. This has a fuller sound and some amazing dynamics to it. I love the B3 sliding in and out of the mix and the way you built drive and energy into it with the drums. All and all an excellent piece of work Bill. Kudos to you for a fine production of and outstanding piece.

I remember as
a kid I used to go boarding down hills and scare my mom to death. But today these kids have taken it to another level. I tried skate board a few years ago and nearly killed my self. I don't think my wife would appreciate me being held up in the hospital with one leg in a sling and my head all bandaged up. But it is amazing what they can do now a days.

Thanks

mmmm.... popcorn....
Lots of nice, hot butter, good and salty, a nice big soda and raisinettes - only 27.95 at your local movie theater...

Very cool tune. Just absolutely amazing and fun to listen to.

Good
mix of instruments on this and a really good weaving of them. Happy tune that just keeps you listening. I like the rhythm as well on this and I would think the skaters would find it good to skate to with or without the popcorn. Just wish I could play like that, regards M

Wonderful posting
I love the fact that your choice of instruments here work so well together. They become one despite the differences. They are like the popcorn. The oil, the butter, the salt and the corn are all separate flavors that are simple by themselves but become delicious when a bit of heat is applied.

How does he do it?
Another delightful composition. You somehow keep coming up with endlessly fresh material.

So how do you do it? Do you get a melody in your head - say something that comes to you during work while laying tile - and then take it from there when you get home? Or do you just sit down with the guitar and start dinging around until something interesting emerges?

I ask, because this piece seems fully-developed, with marvelous interplay between the instruments, and astute breaks in the action, that I'm simply curious as to how you develop a song like this.

thetiler said 3983 days ago (January 22nd, 2008)
The main thing
is that I try to keep what I do best kind of the staple of the tune. I am a fingerstyle guitarist, so I try to make that my focal point. One great thing about music is that it is sure endless. There are so many possibilities, so much of music that has presented itself in the mainstream has been the plectrum, when you hear music for decades in the pop culture it's gravitated towards the pick. Sure there has been Mason Williams Classical Gas, there has been pieces that become somewhat famous during the folk era. But I think that, I love to see music in pop that accentuates the more delicate side of the fingerstyle guitar.

Plus, instruments as a kid was one of the neatest things that the radio providing, so I derive plenty of inspiration from yesteryears instrumentals and how great they were. Though many were plectrum style type hits, the put the guitar, kind of in a happy state. Such as Apache, Walk Don't Run, Duane Eddy. There is a lot of music that is famous that really rocks, but the use of the fngerstyle guitar in instrumentals, kinda brings the flavor of the melody back to the tonality of the sound of the non-percussive instrumentation.

But in much of the lead guitar rock hits kinda pushes the other instruments in a secondary situation. But a tune can really become precious if all the instruments work on an even keel.

So, to get a tune to work like clock work, were they all have their part and no one instrument takes the whole show, is something really fun to do. But I think you can still install your special crafted instrument, one that you took so long to get good at, still it can be the main focal point. And show your trademark sort of speak. The gears in a clock are not easy to rotate if you have a toot of a gear out shaped right etc. It take just one thing sometimes to ruin the whole dang thing. So I guess it's just trying to keep passionate about what you are doing, if you start to loose the passion, maybe it's best to start from square one again. That is another thing, it's not being afraid to do it again or start on something new to gain that passion for the tune you are doing.

So basically its' just trying to get the pieces (tracks) to work together and the more power you have in the processing of it, the better, but only if you are understanding the audio software involved (logic 8). Which isn't always easy to do, cause Logic is a monster to understand.

Thanks Warren for the question and thanks for stopping by.

first rate
i've been out of town and just heard this. i love the finger picking mixed with the organ and hand drums. it's like a song off a classic rock record: the one that was your favorite even though it wasn't the hit. wish i would have had this on my ipod while i was driving to san francisco this weekend. great job.

Love the how the percussions compliment that beautiful guitar. Right on. A little CS&N feel to it. Like a last track on an album.
This is really great.

Superb playing Bill ..

.. and catchy tune- timing and groove is just spot on too.. playful .. and you put bongos in .. and got away with it :o) how did you manage that? .. I can never get away with that ...ah well ...

The keys blend very well too.. and the harmonics are just lovely.

The only thing I would change is that 'tremelo' effect doing the slow pan .. I would either drop it .. or use
it much more sparingly.

Well deserved rating this. Well done!

Keywords
Bill, I love your list of keywords. They are almost as interesting as your music! :-)

Lots of interesting stuff here. Guitar work is strong as always. Do I hear Billy Preston on a B-3 organ back there somewhere? Cool touch.

Drum track is just right. Keeps the flow going, but does not cover the fine picking and keyboarding.

Reminds me of the Simon and Garfunkel music in "The Graduate" where Dustin Hoffman is driving in his car and throws the ice cream out onto the highway.

I'm think what popping harmonics at the beginning.
then we get some smooth as butter guitar and organ playing. always a pleasure to hear how you can pull off great compositions and make it sound so confidently.

Organ's...
...a really fun and nice touch. You're doing some really cool stuff with the added instrumentation, lately. And your guitar work's always fantastic...

Tasty...if I rode my bicycle with an iPod, I'd have this on a loop. Just moves so fine. But I can't do that (with the bike that is)...gotta hear the traffic...so I'll be happy with it on my feet/bed/couch/chair...you know.

Thanks, Bill. This is cool...
