Hi All,

Here's a simple little song called Paper Plane.

Paper plane
Sailing high at midnight
Silver stars
Lighting our way
Take your seat
Say goodbye to the Apple
Close your eyes
We’re on our way
 
Painted words
All around the city
It takes time
Graffiti fades
Lift our wings
Up and over the Hudson
Close your eyes
We’re on our way
 
Paper plane
This is Captain Midnight
All the stars
Fading to grey
Feel the rain
It’s summer in the mountains
Close your eyes
We’re on our way
 
Paper plane
We’re on our way
La La La La
We’re on our way
La La La La
We’re on our way
Paper plane
We’re on our way

Nice, laid back tune sir. I really like that tremolo effect on guitar.

You continue to make great use of that baritone RT!

We absolutely loved this song...it took me (Bud) way back to the Captain Midnight I knew as a kid and wondered about at night looking at the stars...and of course I wore the decoder ring smile If we could only decode things so easily nowadays...

Wonderful!

Dave,

Thanks - I appreciate that.

The tremolo sounding guitar is a Baritone RT - a great sounding instrument.

There's a spareness to this arrangement that compliments the wistful lyrics.

I'm always impressed how you can bring a poetic feel to your songs, but still keep them melodic and unforced.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
