This is a composition of mine designed to blow the winter winds away, which we've had far too much of in the UK!
Scene: A very warm Spring day, you stretch out in the shade under a tree and watch the dappled sunlight through the leaves above as your thoughts drift away...
Alan wields his Strat in brilliant fashion on verses one and three, and I play verse two. We add fills behind each other's main parts.
We hope you enjoy it.
'Beneath The Trees'.

Skyline-

Beautifully done in every way. Only wish there were a little reverb on the piano (which reminds me of America's "Daisy Jane" from a few decades ago).

Nice song guys... somewhat "EAGLES-esque"
I kept waiting for Don Henley to start singing

Its a really nice tune the only criticism is the drums for me it was a bit to "hard" for such a tranquil and melodic song.In my ear I could hear in part of that song a nice string section but was impressed with it overall Cheers Frankie

Hi Alan & John,

It's all been said. This is a really well written, well performed and well produced song. There's nothing I would change. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.

Regards,
Noel

This is a really pro-sounding and well worked instrumental. I would love to hear a 'vocals-added' version, so that the melody comes through more. I agree that perhaps for some of the time we could have a rimshot instead of that snare - also not sure about that ethereal patch that kicks in at 1:11.

well done guys..

Wow! What else can I say? Alan that bell like sound of your Strat is awesome. Sounds like you put on a new set of strings for this one.

John your guitar work fit in there perfectly. I liked the way the two of you wound in and out of each other. The mix was great. Good on ya Mateys.

Nice surprise. The intro visual I got was that of wintery. Then, you kicked in with the drums and it lightened up the mood to feel more like a brighter day. I like the variety of guitar tone choices especially in defining the verses. I like it very much. Being a guitar instrumentalist I can appreciate the thought you are trying to visualize where vocalist would do with their lyrics and voice.

Very nice,
RickeG
