Get Flash to see this player.

The idea behind this song was inspired by on the story The Hare and the tortoise , A great story my Grandad use to read me . the fast , slow change in tempo signifies the race , and as you know against all odds the tortoise eventually won the race , hence the ending f the song is slow tempo with acoustic the guitar. Please enjoy and whether you hate it or love it please do leave your comments. thanks .

I really like the drum sounds in this. the synth entrances are a little abrupt, but maybe that represents the Hare? Did you ever see that old Bugs Bunny cartoon where he races Cecil Turtle? If you havent you should check it out, its a great take on the Tortoise and Hare story.

very creative
some really nice sounds here. out of curiosity, what did you record this with? i too would have preferred the synths to come in a little more smoothly, but i think that's because I am really into that beat. i could listen to that part alone.

re: very creative
hi I used albeton live 7.2 to the recording . I am thinking of chopping up the synth and timestretch that part then incorporate into master mix that will enable a smooth transition , the only downside to that it might affect the tonality. Thnx for comment.

Nice Beat
I liked the beat. You might try a dopler effect on the "hare" synth by starting softly, increase volume to a crescendo and then a like decrescendo with a like pan. That would help the transition, but also give the feeling that the "hare" has passed us by.

Anyway, nice going.
