Stardust On The Moon

We've not written anything new in a while, so I pulled this one from one of last year's folders of songs not yet posted or not yet finished. I wrote and recorded this in June of 2018. It's a slow 12/8 nylon acoustic track with subdued backing trax and has a slight Old West influence. I added a small amount of reverb on the snare rim shots. It's all BIAB ... nothing from me other than the concept and the arrangement.

Isn't BIAB a fabulous tool? One of the best investments I've ever made in my life.

The tracks is really cool though with bass & lead acoustic up the middle and the snare/rim to the right, (makes sense given that it would probably conflict with the melodic guitar), along with the brighter parts of the 2nd guitar the left seems a little vacant - some low stuff and the middle tones of the third guitar but it feels like it's a reverb channel - a popular device for a while...
The elements are very cool.

A very lovely song...
I really enjoyed listening to it...
Perhaps someday you will add lyrics...
These are the rough lyrics I heard as it played...

Stardust on the moon
Drifting down from heaven
Covering you hair
With glimmers of gold

As I hold you in my arms
And we dance in the moonlight
My heart's rekindled with love
We had in days of old

Stardust on the moon
Stardust on the moon
Filling my heart with love
For you

Stardust on the moon
Stardust on the moon
Filling my heart with love
For you

Alan, that's quite a lovely arrangement! Great job putting this together! This could be used as a promotional tool by BIAB to sell the product! Thanks, Torrey

That`s a lovely vehicle you`ve created for the nylon guitar.
Very atmospheric of the olde west!

Alan,

This is beautiful...as are all of your instrumentals. Always well thought out, nicely put together. Really "shows off" BIAB - and your skills using it...

Beautiful.

Very beautiful tune, that style is one of the best in BIAB. Excellent chording, it really makes the nylon guitar sound real - like it was playing just for this tune.

Nice!

I'm a big fan of the waltz time in the first place, and the nylon string lead is lovely.

Hi Ray ...

Thanks for the listen and comments. When I get a chance, I'll fill in that left channel a little better. Glad you enjoyed it otherwise. Thanks again ...

I'm delighted you enjoyed your listen, Jim. And that lyric is a great starting point. I like it!@ If I decide to add a lyric, I'll get back to you and we'll flesh it out a bit. Wishing you the best ...

Talent + BiaB is a helluva combination - as demonstrated with this composition.

A showcase within the showcase!

Really nice Al and very cinematic...hope you have it on Songtradr.

J&B

PS Did add a separate stick track to put the verb on?

Alan,

Really nice man. Very smooth.

I want to apologize for being so absent from the forum. Also, I will be candid that this part of the post is kind of a generic “form letter” to my old and new forum friends.

In brief, work is very hectic right now and I am having a hard time keeping up with the forum and even writing new songs. There is also a lot of new material hitting the boards—more than I can listen to and reply. People are on a roll!

Instead of backing away from the forum I want to stay involved by just giving the equivalent of a “like” as opposed to full-fledged commentary.

This way, I can just keep listening, and enjoying and reply with a simple LOVE IT or something like that.

I do listen, love your stuff and really want to continue following those who are so dedicated to encouraging others, even if it is only with one word.

Hope this makes sense, thanks for your artistry and forgive my brevity going forward with massive time constraints.

Also forgive me if you see this message more than once until I know I have covered all my bases.

Peace!!

smile

What a great mood you've set with this piece. The melody is strong, the backing and progression easy to listen to. I'd put an album of such pieces on for those special occasions. Very, very nice.

Dear Alan,

first of all: We hope that Di is improving or, even better, has become totally cured again. And that you two can get a bit relieved from all those sorrows illness causes.

Yes, I 100% agree: BIAB is just invaluable (which doesn't mean PG shpuld raise it's price :)), and, yes, I can't think of anything I'd rather spend my dough on, too.

But as marvellous as it may be: It takes a lot of musicianship to be able to come up with such a nice song like STARDUST ON THE MOON.

It's a very appealing song, got me to sit back and listen to it with my eyes cllosed - just lovely. (But to be honest: Wouldn't have expected anything less good from your side.)

Dear Alan, all the best to Di and you and thanks for another very, very nice compistion and production.

Take good care,

Stefan

Hi Al-David, fantastic choice of instrumentation on this. The different elements really glue well together and excellent guitar riffs too. Thanks for sharing!

I thought of some of the romantic scenes of any of the great Italian film directors of the 50's & 60'--Fellini, Rosselini, Bertolucci -- though the contemporaries no doubt carry on. Not just the classical guitar, but it never hurts.
