Gives You Wings - MJ 10 Year Anniversary

Get Flash to see this player.

I noticed yesterday that today marked 10 years in this place. It kind of struck me harder than I thought it would, so much I felt compelled to get back to my old habits and record an instrumental like I once did.

Macjams will always hold a special place in my life for lighting a fire under me and letting me know that I really could make music. I made some great virtual friends here, whom I sure would be even better in person (sadly I've never seen a fellow MJ'er face to face, but I still hold out hope.)

This was an attempt to get back to music the way I once did, all instrumental and straight in. THe acoustic was recorded with a mic, but the lead huitar was my best attempt at emulating within Logic the old Garageband "Glam Rock" guitar setting. I fell in love with that sound 10 years ago, and I would love to get it with my live sound. The progression is based off one of my earlier songs, I'm sure of it!

It was a lot of fun going back to the "One night in the Studio" and publishing whatever I ended up with. Thanks Macjams, I hope you are still around in another 10 years!

Epic lead guitar work. Sometimes less tracks = more sound. Not a bad result for one nights work in the studio.
Check out my latest song called Quiet Town

Congrats on the 10 year anniversary. "One night in the studio" has produced a fine impromptu instrumental. Nice soaring guitar lines. Perhaps the acoustic/lead balance might have been tipped a touch more in favour of the lead? Nice one. Thanks.
