So I wrote the chords for this and chose the style ... and then I thought: hang on a minute. I know it's just a musical bed/background, but why not let the listener himself/herself imagine the melody? It's an experiment ... if it doesn't work "as is", I may write a melody or at least a spoken word track for this ... but I thought: I like it as it is - and I'd love the listener to imagine his or her own journey here. Hence the title: "Fly With Me".

Honest comments, as always, always welcome - thank you so much for listening to this little experiment of mine :-)

Lovely backtrack. Very easy to imagine a lovely melody playing across this backtrack. Well done

Hi James,

This is a really nice backing track. Such a great introduction and I love how you stayed on the tonic chord for so long before setting out on your harmonic adventure.

As is often the case, you take the listener on a journey that uses inventive chord progressions. I often find myself sitting here thinking, "Ooooo, I like that!" and I dash over to the piano to try and discover what the progression was.

Thank you once again for a fun ride.

All the best,
Noel

"I could ride on wings of man-made things or answer the call in my soul." Yeah that was the opening line, James. Very good write. So much potential.

James,
The held chords of that pedal steel do suggest and leave space for imagined melody; I have a feeling you`ll be creating some of those gentle spoken words for this enjoyable track.

Nice band ... we've liked that lush steel RT for years. Good choice!

Mellow track. Some of the changes were a bit more out of blue than others, but they're your signature chord changes.

Felt like it was ready to stop around 2:00, the sax brought it back to life.

Around 3:00 I was looking for another change, and that quickly followed.

So the form was pretty easy to follow.

I'll borrow a punchline from a comment David Snyder made on an unrelated post, only because it fits with your title:

You should man.

That would be fly!

OK, it was funnier when David said it. wink

Well done! laugh

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

Oh my word. Thanks EACH ONE of you for listening and for such nice comments!

Noel, I can send you the chord progression in a private message if you want (if the message software allows for that) ... as David Cuny says, it's just some of my "signature" chord changes which can seem and indeed be a little abrupt at times, but ... if you want it, I'll be only too happy to send it. Thanks for such kind comments!

David Cuny: I don't know how you manage, both time-wise and otherwise, to give such detailed feedback on every song that you comment on ... but THANK YOU. The David Snyder quote made me smile!

EACH ONE OF YOU: THANK YOU.

Hi James,

Thank you! That would be great. I don't have Shigeki Adachi's (animarorecords) perfect pitch so I don't instantly know what a chord is.

I've sent you a private message.

Much appreciated smile
Noel

Hi musician17,

Nice progression of well thought out chords. It's an instrumental that lets us create our own melody and it's good to let our imagination create our own melody. Original intention.

Kindly regard

Take away the steel and this could be one of Velvet Underground's pastoral pieces.
Very tasty.

Nice one, James. Second time through I picked up things not heard first time listening.
The graphic is geese migrating. Coincidentally, Confucious said, "Music is like a flock of geese on a tranquil, motionless pond. One flutters. Soon the entire flock takes flight, ascends, circles the pond. Then, one by one, they return to the pond and it is tranquil once more." Something to that effect.

It's always so flattering to receive such nice comments from such great musicians as you are. You'll forgive me for feeling like I'm walking on clouds for a few moments, right? :-)

Thank you!
