A pop ballad song. It will take you to your good old days.

https://soundcloud.com/hirokata1121/dear-old-days

For this song, two real styles are used;
1. _PRAIRPN.STY. Prairie' Solo Accompaniment Piano
2. _POPH085.STY. Slow Guitar Ballad

It starts with the piano solo accompaniment and moves to the
band play featuring two acoustic guitars, an electric dreamy guitar
and an electric bass with a real drum, and plus piano for the last part.

I hope you like it.

******* Summary *******
Key=F , Tempo 90
Style:
_PRAIRPN.STY (Prairie' Solo Accompaniment Piano)
RT887: Piano, Acoustic, Solo-Accompaniment FolkPopPrairie
and
_POPH085.STY (Slow Rock Ballad)
RT518: Bass, Electric, Pop HalfNotes Ev 085 , Dow Tomlin
RT365: Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 085 , Jason Roller

RT542: Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dreamy Ev 085 , Darin Favorite

RGC Orchestral Forest <= Melody-3

A very gentle and thoughtful melody.

The VST Flute came through really well on my system.

I liked the change of instruments, this worked to give the song further dimension.

A very enjoyable piece. I liked the way it evolved: the arrangement took the listener on a journey.

Thank you for your comment. For this song, the toughest part for me was the selection of instruments other than the flute and strings, and also how make them sound not monotonous. As for the selection, I reached the final ones after four or five trials. As for the sound, I overlapped two tones of the same instrument and I think it worked well. I am very happy you like them.
