This song came together after I was playing with some harmonics and the track got built around it. I was going to upload it then I thought Robert might be able to convert it to a song with lyrics.

This is the original song:

Changes

This is the band:

It's fun and interesting to hear the original.

When we were about half way through Janice said that it reminded here of part of the soundtrack for the movie Dune. It does have a cinematic feel.

You, the white strat, the amp and the fx created some fine engaging guitar over some well thought out backing tracks.

I'm not knowledgeable (but trying to learn a bit) about guitar fx but they created a really cool sound particularly with the delay.

Nice!

Really cool sounding...
You play so well & tastefully...
I'm glad you included a link to "The Atlas of Remote" so I could compare the two...
I also really liked that collaboration.

Scott,

Nice to hear the original... It has a "majestic" feel to it. Distinctive.

Sound like a soundtrack for a large army heading into battle...

The Wah is cool!! Enjoyed the listen.

Hi Scott,

That's a very nice solo you did in this song! That is something I must learn one day...
And I liked you used that DOOMED-style as I did with Strnger in my house (second part).
You only slowed it down a bit more. I nearly could sing along.

Bye for now,
Hans

Scott

Nice tasty playing - some very nice textures and dynamics - wrapped in a pretty melodic phrases.
Nicely done.

Scott, this is definitely movie material, maybe a march for an emperor. Super chops, as always, but your tones took it over the top for me. Great work here.

Robert's vocal is excellent in the collaboration version.

Scott you should be very proud of the original version and both of you should be very proud of the collaboration.

As others have said, it's got a very cinematic feel, a slow and steady march forward. Very evocative.

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

Scott,

This is great. I love all the textures and layers. Has kind of a Daniel Lanois vibe which I love.

The kind of piece that puts some ooomph in your step. Cinematic? Yes...but also the soundtrack for the best way to get through a day--calm and purposeful. Good stuff.

This is really cool!!! Reminds me of the songs of the 70's.....the longer you listen, the deeper you get. Love the way the drums work with that melody which has kind of a Celtic feel. Wonderful work guys!!! Take care. Greg

Scott, somehow you are able to put a touching feeling in every note you play... makes it a very nice track to listen to.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Scott,

It's great to hear the song before it became "Atlas of the Remote".

You've definitely got a knack for making instrumentals very engaging for the listener. This one was no exception.

I'm really pleased that it engaged Robert to write words because "Atlas of the Remote" is one of my all-time favourites from the two of you.

Thank you for posting this and giving us all an insight into your song's journey.

All the best,
Noel

Scott,
Enjoyed it much. Unusual in a very good way. Got a hint of darkness in it, but listens very well.

Thank you for sharing!
