I really tried to come up with something new... been working on this track since I upgraded to 2013. The lead is me, after listening to some of the generated solos. Took me 10 tracks of recording the solo, then cutting and pasting the best parts into the final solo track within my DAW. Thank you, arthritis!

Any way, trying to be original with this one.

In The Mood

Any hints as to what this could be classified as? Thanks in advance.

Mike

Mike,

That is quite enjoyable. Kind of a "George Benson vibe" to it (your lead especially). I'd call is "cool jazz" or "smooth jazz" - or just "enjoyable music". The rythym guitar - the real fast chord changes - are a bit too much "up front" - they "get in the way" of your lead (and it's good enough "to shine" - let it) - knock that back a bit and let your lead instrument "take the lead".... I enjoyed it.

Thanks a bunch, floyd ... I'll remix it based upon your recommendation. I had a feeling that the lead was a bit too much in the back (or, blended in too much, not standing out).

Thanks again!

Cheers,
Mike

Hi Mike, I think is closer to "Smooth Jazz" than anything else. I agree with Floyd, the solo should be a little more up front thru-out the song. other than that, is pretty enjoyable.

I agree with Pete and Floyd.
Nachdem in 5 deiner Realtracks "Smooth" steht, hat sich
die Stilfrage eigentlich erledigt.
Du hast "Gitarrentalent".

Hi Mike.

Wow! There's a great deal of skill on show in this piece. I sat back, closed my eyes and just let the music paint pictures for me. It was wonderful to listen to. Have you tried this with BossaRock percussion in Realdrums? I found myself wondering how it would sound with a Latin lilt to the rhythm.

A very enjoyable listen!
Noel

Thanks so much, Noel! That's a good idea with the BossaRock percussion. Will have to try that :0

Thanks for the kind words and the listen, Sir
