Sorry I havent been able to post an own Composition since Waltz For Chloe. Still been busy doing a few “covers” which are pretty much verbotten on here.
Here's a Poppy little bit of guitar Nonsense. Nothing fancy – just me and my RealTracksBand having some Fun. Not a single “fancy” chord in it. I love the K.I.S.S. System.
I wanted something cheerful to take my mind off our Son and family emigrating to their new life in Australia on Feb 21st.
Written in BB and exported to my old Cakewalk DAW as individual wavs for further action – like mixing, mastering etc. It all ends a bit “immediate” and I dont know why but what the Heck!! lol !!

Hi Ian
That is a very happy tune indeed! Well if that doesn't cheer one up then nothing will
Is that you on the guitar or is it also a real track?

Hi Jo
Thanks for listening and your kind comment.
The lead guitar is me playing my Stratocaster.Everything else is RT and RD.
Cheers
Ian

Great vibe to the song, like the build at the start and the use of octaves between choruses.
The ending after the last chord seemed chopped of though and too abrupt.
Otherwise, nice

Thanks Mike
Maybe the Accordion should be a tad louder and Synth a tad quieter, but what is mixed is mixed. Ipso Fatso!! Lol!

Good to hear from you. Hope all is good with you and Shirley.
As you know, I'm a big Shadows fan.
That Bass line came straight out of BB. Ready made. Awesome!

Hi VT
Thanks for the Crit.
Staggering the instruments in for the opening 4 bars was intentional and worked quite well.
I did comment in my Header about the ending being abrupt. Can't get it to decay out on the last chord like I expected it to. Maybe its because I have made the Style myself so doesn't contain any info in the STY as to how it should carry through the last chord. Any ideas?
Cheers
Ian

Fine picking, arrangement and mix. Who needs fancy chords?!

I really like this song. A lot. Regarding the decay at the end, FWIW, I found that if I'm using repeated choruses with an outro the RTs do not fade BUT if I convert everything to one long chorus then the RTs behave. I'm sure you know... but there is an option to convert.

Hi Ian.

Loved all of it, right from the opening bar.

Lovely sound from the strat and a clever bit of palm damping in the middle.

Chord sequence works really well and the whole piece has, as you say, a happy feel to it. Great choice of instrumentation and a pro mix.

Oh, and give that bass player a bonus!

ROG.

Ian, I really liked your playing and the way you changed pickup settings. The muting really worked well. Great melody. The mix sounded good. Nicely done. Tom

Ian, I definitely hear "The Shads" in it. May I share it with my friend, Nokie Edwards of Ventures fame? I agree with ROG on the palm mute. Perfectly executed.

Thanks for the "ear candy".

Hi Janice & Bud
Glad you enjoyed it. It was fun to put together. If ever I form a Band, an Accordion is going to be right in there.
I usually set my BB as one long chorus anyway so it's not that. Maybe I should have tried D... At the end. Its a bit of a crash stop at the end but with a bit of luck, the audience won't notice! Lol
Cheers
Ian
