Here's a tune wot I wrote.
It was going to be a song. It even had worms - “Shadows of evening, slip from the sky” - etc but as I can't sing, it'll just have to be another Instro – again - as usual.
Typical of slow Instro tunes of the 1960's – 70's(“Shadows” - geddit?) its in an “Enchantment Under The Sea” style (remember Back To The Future?). Many a fine 'Date' ended smooching to a tune like this.
I'm a relative newcomer to the Showcase Forum. I usually do “Covers” using BIAB which, of course, can't be put up on here. But there are some amazing Songwriters here who have well and truly opened my eyes to the fact there is so much more to a tune than C, F and G7.
So this one isn't! Lol !
Guitar is “Lady”, my beloved hand-built Alan Brason Strat with Kinman pickups and Elixir 11s strings.
Chain is – Guitar - Korg ampworks mini-modeller on AC30TB /twin cab setting - Zoom2000 EFTP on patch 36 – thats it! Simples!
Here is the BIAB recipe -

Ian,

That is absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous tone on that guitar. A beautiful melody with just the right (subtle) backing to let your guitar SHINE! Goes to show you don't need 50,000 notes played as fast as they can be to make great guitar music.

Love it. Gorgeous. More!!!

Ian,

"Lady" sounds beautiful, loved the tone and that was some very, very tasty vibrato work!
I really enjoyed it.

Hi Ian,

You really have a gift for wonderful melodies. While I'm not a guitarist, I found this a pleasure to listen to. I closed my eyes and just let the music wash over me. I loved it!

More please!
Noel

Love your guitar playing.

The only thing that I think might improve this is to maybe completely drop the strings out in a couple of places. Your guitar is a lot better than the strings and I think w/o the string backing in a few measures, it might put the focus more squarely on the lead guitar.

Really lovely piece Ian!

Ian

Goodness me! Thank you for all the kind words and comments.
All this came out of a chord "noodle" one night and before I knew it I had the bones of the tune.
My grateful thanks to Floyd,Boehm,Mike B, Nels, Greg, Richard, Noel, Ian, ROG and Steve for listening. What is interesting is that you guys are MY Mentors - you compose and create amazing music - and if my effort has pleased you then I am more than happy.

Ian F - I DID try the technique of dropping the synth and (later) the strings out at intervals. Indeed in the first part of Verse 1, I did just that. What I was aiming for, in the end, was the gradual introduction of backing to make a more climactic finish rather than showing off the guitar.
"Lady" needs no encouragement to Show Off. "The Show Isn't Over Till Lady Sings" (lol). If you enjoyed her sound then she will be pleased too.

Floyd - half of the composing should be down to you. If you remember "Claire", there are some chords in the tune that I had never heard of and sounded beautiful. You generously showed me your workings and what they were. I tried weaving a couple into the melody that I had in my head and they worked so well. Thank you for your kindness and sharing your knowledge.
cheers
Ian

Excellent! Sounds like Mark Knopfler playing a lead out tune for a 1960's prom. Just a great guitar tone.

Hi Ian,

Boy, did this performance conjure up memories of Santo and Johnny, and Duane Eddy. That beautiful guitar sound.
