Gone But Not Forgotten

I have been extremely busy this past month with the passing of my mother, the funeral, working with my brothers on her estate and cleaning up a major mold problem in my basement. Thus I have had very little time for music! Plus it looks like I’m going to be busy for the next month or two.

But I did put together this piece as a tribute to my mother during my limited free time. I am on guitar (guess who my mother thought the best guitarist in the world was) and bass. The rest is a slightly modified BiaB style as follows:

Style = New Age 2 @ 60 BPM

The guitar part I raised 1 octave and changed the patch to a Gamalon
The piano part I raised 1 octave and changed the patch to a Rhodes EP
The strings I changed to a majestic pad
The drums are a TTS-1 GM Jazz Kit
Of course I deleted the bass track

Note that the above tracks are as generated by BiaB. All I did was to change the patches and changed the octave on two of them.

I had a hard time finding a solo so I had BiaB generate a melody part. I then used about 3 or 4 different phrases and used them as starting points.

I hope you like it.

May God bless and comfort you in the loss of your mother.

Lovely guitar and song - a sweet tribute. She had good taste in guitarists.

Hi Mario,

I'm so very sorry to read about the passing of your mother. Please accept my condolences. I'm sure your mum heard you putting your song together and smiled. Your playing is excellent. She'd be proud. It's a wonderful tribute. I'm heading back for another listen now. This time I'm going to close my eyes and just let the imagery flow.

My thoughts are with you,
Noel

Mario,

So sorry to hear about the loss of your mother! I lost my dad almost 6 years ago, and I still miss him.

This is a very fitting tribute. I know your mom would be beaming at your excellent performance and production of this!

Blessings to you, my friend.

Steve

I love the bell-chime guitar tone... works well with the raised octave Rhodes. Well done Mario - your mom would have loved it!

Our thoughts are with you. Something that helped me 21 years ago,
was to dwell on all the wonderful memories with your Mom.
Your music does contain a lot of those memories.

Thanks for sharing with us!
