Almost sounded like the Ventures at first, it really changes as it goes along. Great use of Biab's amazing versatility Tim, thanks for sharing!

Tommyc,

Thanks for listening and commenting.

Yeah I was thinking of the Ventures when I came up with that main tune.
The wind is a symbol of life in this case and life definitely has allot of changes.
Tried to reflect that in the music.

Tim,

First part immediately thought of Ghost Riders in the Sky, then the story goes
on. No resemblance in melody at all, but rhythm and style.

The primary theme stays thruout, but your changes did add something special.

And it would be a great soundtrack.

"Clint Eastwood" back again.

Thanks for your work and sharing.

This is a good one. I like songs with a melody and this is a nice one. Couldn't wait to see which instrument sound would come in next. Very well put together with an unusual mix of instruments. Creative much!

Great mix Tim...

Q: How did you get/accomplish the cymbal swish? Sonar?

Man...do I have a lot to learn...sheesh.

Cheers!

Yes, I used Sonar to create that cymbal swish via midi data.

Tim,
The rhythm section really gives a solid foundation for the creativity of the lead instruments. Great Job.

Josie and SD,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment on my song.
It means allot.
I really love westerns, both movies and books.
Had much fun doing this song.

Hi Tim!

When this song first started playing, I thought, "Oooooh, nice! Very Baby Elephant Walk styled". Then it took on a character that reminded me of Clint Eastwood and westerns. After that, I stopped thinking and simply tapped my foot and smiled as I listened. I've got to say that this is very creative and very enjoyable.

All the best,
Noel

to me it sounds like a collaboration between the Doors, Sons of the Pioneers, Fleetwood Mac, Bela Fleck and Enya. Who'd have thought THAT would work??

I like the fact that you have fused a bunch of styles and avoided coming up with a song that sounds like a knockoff of a thousand other songs. You also managed to make it interesting (oftentimes such experiments don't come out as well as the composer hoped)

I also like the judicious use of sound effects. They make the song so much more interesting because they add unique moods and memories held by every listener who has ever experienced those sounds at memorable points in their lives. I think it would be very difficult to evoke such a respoinse with music alone.

Anyway, two enthusiastic thumbs up!

Pat,

Thank you very much for listening and commenting. Greatly appreciated.
You pretty much put into words what I was trying to accomplish with this tune.
Thanks again.
