Just going to leave this here.

Working on a big project, so no time to write music or even visit here to listen, of late :-( Today, I "threw a tantrum", stopped working for the day and wrote this instead. I hope it was worth it ;-) - thanks for listening, all comments welcome.

I think you have good bones here, nice track, good progression.

Just needs a melodic element on top and you are good to go I think.

I agree with Dave, James... (which is usually the case).

A nice track James, with some hooky changes, a very enjoyable listen.

Well, a melody, some words and a voice BUT it's a backing worth the effort.
You've made installment one.
next tantrum you can knock over one of the remaining tasks.
And proceed toward completion step by step.

Hello James ...

First, I hope your project proves successful and fruitful.

A very nice, relaxing tune with a great foundation. Love the chord progression ... exciting for such a pretty song! You use BIAB quite well!

Wishing you the very best. Take care and please be safe ...

Alan

Hello musician17,

Very relaxing soundtrack creating a pleasant atmosphere. A small melodic line would have been well received but it is already very well done like that.

Kindly regard

Nicely done smile Very calming and easy on the ears, which I liked. Definitely gives off a soundtrack-esque vibe. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks everybody - very kind of you to listen. Yes, it needs polishing (as Ray says, a melody, voice and words) - but yes, my next "tantrum" should hopefully push me towards that! Thanks for the encouraging words - it helps to know that this is worth polishing!

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
