Same template as "Pickup Valentine".
This time the form features a waltz time, except for the measures bracketed by cymbals.

Hello KC
Thanks for the comment. Trying to create something new is what this was about. Maybe it works as a piece of music. It was a lot of fun to do.

Made me think of being at a circus fairground. Musical snippets coming at you from the left and right but they make sense as a whole because you know that its part of the action and attraction. Great mix. Higher order thinking music. Impressive, Daug. Thanks.

Sum of the parts?
Circus like? Maybe...
The divisions in the stereo field create a previously unexplored mix perspective for me.
The area of interest is between 30 and 50 degrees left and right were synths are operating. This is the air and phased sounds. They sit on top of the background chords and poke into the mix at alternate times.
It was interesting to try and get a guitar solo to sit comfortably on top of the works.
Thanks for commenting, hope to see ya next time.

tiny parts, it made me think of a sooped up Black Magic Woman, though it doesn't really sound like it. Power snare in here, love it.

BMW/Peter Green Inspired?
Hello Sam. Naw no BMW inspiration here. The 3/4 waltz time gets warped and a faux 6/8 groove is attempted during the speed up section. It also wobbles, which I really like.
The snare has to hit hard to keep the head spinning feel going. In general, snare is the single loudest element in any mix for me. This lesson is from Roger Nichols' bag.
I will bus out the snare and mix it into the center of the stereo field as well. In general most percussion is hard right and left on my mixes. This template has a lot of potential for my ears...
Thanks for your interest in this project.

Plenty going on here. My ears keep flicking from element to element as each insinuates itself in the mix. Guitar sort of sits on top and sort of sits in with the others. Fine playing throughout. Entertaining!

Been here since the place opened. I hope you enjoy yourself here at MJ. In fall 2009, I erased the 60+ tunes I had posted since day one. MJ had changed, becoming hateful and repressive, and I needed to respond appropriately. What happe... [see more]
