A composition from a guitarist friend who's playing days are sadly now over due to serious ill health. I have his permission to use this tune.
Arranged by me in a "Shadows" 'red Indian genre' style.
BT is all BIAB tracks. My thanks to Pipeline for telling me how to get 2 drum tracks on one SGU. Lol.
Tracks on SGU -
RealTracks in song: 1174:Bass, Electric, PopCalypso Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 1175:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm PopCalypso Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 1175:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm PopCalypso Ev 100
RealTracks in song: 1278:Synth Pad, PopUplift Ev 120
RealDrums [in Song:CongasEv8[single]: a: More High Congab: More Low Conga
RealDrums [in Song:PopRock16ths^04-a:Sidestick, HiHat, b:Snare, Ride

Main guitar is my hand built Alan Brason Strat with Kinman FV pickups. Infills and harmony from my $120 Harley-Benton ST-62 budget Strat.

I hope you enjoy it -

AND for those who like their Rhythm guitar to be louder in the Mix - this is just for you (lol) -

Yeah!! One of the best instrumentals I've heard on this site, just outstanding! Definitely hearing a Shadows vibe.

Excellent composition from your friend and a wonderful job on the track from you.

Very much enjoyed this one, well done!

Very impressive number...
It stands very well alone but...
I can easily hear it as a backing track in some future movie!

Hi Dave
Thank you for your kind summary. As written it was a LOT heavier but I wanted a lighter, "Shadows" feel to it. I think it worked.
Hans is not a well boy at the moment and has given up playing the guitar as he can neither sit for long or work his fingers like he used to. The Devil is Old Age! Back in the 60's he was a band member of a well known (in Germany) Beat Group.
The tracks came easily - I started out with BLANK-STY, figured out the chords using the Acoustic Guitar RT and then built up from there.
Ian

Nicely done - very well textured, and it flows super smoothly. I'm really sorry to hear about your friend - I have no doubt he's immensely happy with the work you tune with his tune.

Thanks for sharing smile

Not only is this a great tune but it is also a fine tribute to your friend.

That clean guitar is so captivating that it's easy to not attend to just how good the backing tracks are.

The calypso vibe sets a great bed and we much liked the multi-drums. They are a lot of fun to experiment with and you made good use of it.

Shadows...yeah...nailed!

Kudos!

Thank you everyone for all the kind words.
It was great fun to do and I'm grateful to Hans for allowing me to mess up his Original in MY way.
I love the chord progression, especially in the bridge and that is what drew me to it in the first place.
I dont think it would have got past First Base if I hadn't found that Acoustic Guitar RT early on. Those arppegio'd chords are so precise and clean. I was easily able to build on that.
And my Strat is not as "clean" as you might think. In some sections I have used a Behringer US600 Harmonist pedal set as "Reverse 12 String" - whatever note I play I ALSO get an octave down too. Have to be careful how low I play or the second niote is a Bass guitar. lol
Many thanks
Ian

HI Ian ...

Loved this! Has the basic sound and style from the several of the early 60s group, yet feels contemporary in so many ways. Love the sound of your guitars! This all rests very nicely in my ears. Excellent job and tribute. Very, very nice!

Alan

Hi Greg - thank you for your comment. I'm never sure if what I perceive as a good mix is anyone elses. Glad you like the sound of my " Red Lady".
Hi David - yes, I changed Hans' original from an OD Fest to very much a Shadows style. The melody can truly stand it.
Hi Alan - Hans' background IS from 60s and 70's Beat Groups in Europe and the tune does fit with that Vibe, although HIS Demo to me (some years old) was quite Overdriven. Thank you for the kind review.
Cheers
ian

Your mate writes cool progressions.
You play very cool Hank Marvin lead/melody.
the arrangement is really cool though I'm not overly fussed on the synth pad - a Farfisa or B3 would've sounded more "of the time" but that's small beans... well done, very well done & tell you cobber as well.

Hi Scott and Torrey - thank you for you kind words.
Hi Ray - I tend only to use RTs or any resident basic midi sounds. I did try the various B3s but but they were all too over the top.
Hi TuneMonger and Misha - thanks for listening and your kind comments.
