Here is my week 14 song for my 52 Tracks project: Sorrows of the Moon

http://52tracksblog.com/2016/04/07/track-14-sorrows-of-the-moon/

A very spare arrangement, just bass guitar, piano, and drums.

701 Electric Bass Pop Half Notes Sync, 1006 Piano Pop California Slow, and Nashville Even 8^5 Real Drums.

Thanks for listening. Comments are always appreciated.

Very nice set of lyrics - quite a sophisticated song. Can hear the Jackson Browne influence or Al Stewart for that matter.
May have been nice with a little David Lindley like slide or violin to break it up a little but overall another very nice song.
I'm very impressed with the the variety a you are coming up with on a weekly basis.

Hi Fred,

Very nice song. It's hard to make a sparse arrangement shine, but you did a great job with this one! Still, I'd kinda like to hear the big production version of it... ;-)

I'm curious to know.. looks like you're planning to post a new song every week for a year... Will you be starting from scratch every week? Or do you have a bunch of songs written already? Maybe you're redoing them in BIAB?

Either way, such a goal would be way out of my reach! Good luck to you, sounds like a fun and satisfying goal to shoot for!

Thanks for the comments, Pat. Some of the songs have been recorded in a week this year, while others are final tweaks and mixes of songs I have recorded in the past six years but never truly finished. I have changed some instruments because I found better RealTracks. As the year moves on the great majority of songs will be newly recorded. Happily, I am becoming more efficient in arranging, recording, editing, and mixing.

Fred
