Hey guys...I love to compose an instrumental every now and then but I have a hard time titling them...so...What I need from you is a good title for this piece...so if you listen and feel the urge just throw back to me a thought or idea for the title...I appreciate it and may just choose one...it's no big deal...except that this melody will own the name forever (or until I change it to something else) smile...all comments and suggestions are welcomed...so...if you do...thanks for listening...Dan

Dan, I really like this.
After the first 4 bars or so Butterfly On The Wind came to mind.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

"Leaving the Highlands"

Enter this into Googles image search and you also have your album cover cool

Pretty melody Dan. The thought that came to my mind while listening was "Beside still waters."

What a beautiful and atmospheric instrumental!

However, it's slightly long. I would trim it to a maximum of about four minutes?

"Following" is the first that came to mind.

Hello Dan ...

As you know, 90% of what I post is instrumentals. And I have the same problem. This is simply gorgeous. So well done!!!

The title that came top me was "A Long Way From Home".

Beautiful in every way. Congrats on a song well-done.

Hi Dan
What a beautiful song
The melody is just awesome
The song fits very well in today's time.
The joy of life is for many people on our planet no longer or only to a small extent.
Music can help a little to give people hope for better times.
The hope is the decisive step into a better time.
My suggestion for the name of your song would therefore be:
THE POWER OF HOPE
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Hi Dan,

When I saw this was an instrumental I was initially disappointed because I absolutely love your voice!

But you nailed it, love the melody the violin is playing, so powerful and emotive.

Sorry, can't help you with a name, I'm hopeless at that sort of thing smile

Lovely!

"All The Way" were the words I heard when the violin came in with the melody. Love the melody, by the way, and your surrounding instruments are so good. The song is lifting --very lifting-- all the way. Such a good job of counterpoint melodies intertwined with the main one. "All The Way" or "All The Ways."

Came back for another listen, and I second thought I'm sticking with it, Dan. Or you could call it "Rose" because it always sounds so sweet.

A beautiful piece, Dan.

(So I'd call it "A Beautiful Peace")

My thanks to everyone who submitted a thought and especially a title suggestion...there were some great ones so far...let's review...Butterfly on the Wind, Leaving the Highlands, Beside Still Waters, A Long Way From Home, The Power of Hope, All the Way and A Beautiful Peace...Wow! these are all great...they are all so cool and even profound...I think I'll compose a tune for each of them...by the way I had initially called the tune "Mystery" and now it's a mystery which one I'll choose...BTY if anyone else wants in...I haven't made up my mind but I'm leaning toward one of them...this is exciting, right? Stay tuned!!

Outstanding instrumental

Simply extremely beautiful

I would call it "Alone with my Thoughts".

PS - I know for a fact that naming instrumentals can be very challenging!

I pictured a camera speeding across the ocean onto a beach and then soaring high above cliffs and meadows and finally passing among majestic mountain peaks.

"Mountains Of Stone"

Oh well, just my 2 cents worth. I am a big fan of instrumentals, I like empowering listeners imagination with music. Nice piece, I liked it.

Nice.

I like the tone of that lead violin. What did you use? I saw Geno but have no clue....

Also I think the lead violin is a bit too loud. Back it off a few dB to let it sit into the mix a bit more comfortably.

Add nothing that adds nothing to the music.

You can make excuses or you can make progress but you can't do both.
