SNEAKY PETE -> http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=12869389

We wrote this one for a movie opportunity. They wanted something quirky, jazzy and with minimal lead. This is what we offered, but it wasn't selected. It was intended for a comedy scene in which a guy is sneaking around his neighbor's house in the middle of the night.

BIAB Tracks:

File:Al - Sneaky Pete.MGU
Key=Bb , Tempo 103, Length (m:s)=3:39
8 bar intro, 28 bar chorus, from bar 9 to bar 36. Repeat x3 choruses
Melody has 188 notes, Melody harmony is < no harmony >(0)
Soloist track has 134 notes, Soloist harmony is < no harmony >(0)
Song is saved with Volume, Pan, Reverb, Chorus, Bank0,
Song is saved with bar changes for Volume Changes,
Soloist is saved with the song : CLASSICAL16: Piano (245)
Style is NEWJAZZ1.STY (New Jazz 1 - medium 4/4 swing)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Acoustic String Bass (33), Vibes (12), Marimba (13), Clarinet (72),
MIDI Drums :41 Brushes Kit (41)

RealDrums will be substituted :JazzBrushes#1: a: JazzBrushes#1b: JazzBrushes#1
*******************

We hope you don't mind if we post a couple of songs fairly c;lose together as we may not get another opportunity to post for a couple of weeks. But, we don't want to hog the board either.

Thanks,

Alan & Di

Cool stuff!! I could totally see this working for the scene described. Isn't "Sneaky Pete" the name of a studio musician from the past? Possible pedal steel or slide guitar? Name rings a bell. Very cool effort here!! Take care. Greg

Alan & Di, just loved it! you know that I'm an instrumental kind of composer, and this one is right up my alley. You didn't have to describe the mood, it's perfectly set. I's hard not to imagine what's going on.
Thanks for posting.

Mike B.

Hi Greg...

So glad you liked it! Thanks for letting me know. As far as a musician nicknamed "Sneaky Pete", I'm not sure but possibly it was pedal steel player, Pete Drake. That's just a guess, though.

Again, thanks for the listen and very nice comments!

Alan & Di

A VERY enjoyable listen! Great mix, cool instrumentation.

I was expecting some pedal steel, though...

plish,

Thanks for those mighty nice words! So glad you enjoyed and the music did its job for the intended purpose. And yeah, those breaks were put in to create additional drama, as silence almost always does (well, silent except for the brushes). Thanks again!

Hi Floyed,

So glad you thought it was "cool"! It never crossed our minds to use a pedal steel. Hmmm ... maybe something new to play around with! Thanks for you kind comments! Best to you,

Alan & Di
