Original post is below the broken line. The link to the original song, has been removed. As I just cleaned up my soundcloud completely. I am starting fresh, with this piece here. This is a much cleaner mix, of me playing guitar over electronic beats.
Now… This stuff still needs, “a lot of work, and a lot of development.” I know , so we are calling this, “a demo.” of sorts.
What I would like to work on over the next few months is: Getting back into good practice at guitar + figuring out more structure, changing my beats up a little, having sort of v/ch/v/ch themes. So… A lot of work to do. Hopefully this mix is ok to your ears. I am not 100% happy with software guitar sound… I have to figure something else out
Thanks for the listens again
Renoise = wonder!
What a difficult day in the USA today. I really do not want to get too wordy here… But before I say anything else, “I want to say that my heart goes out to all the people, who were directly effected by yesterday mornings tragic event.”
Now… I’ve put together a new piece of music. It has, “a lot of mistakes in it.” Basically, I got a new audio card, that allows me to record my guitar. The last one, “did not.” It was, “a poor choice of audio card,” this time, “I made a good choice in Audio Card.” NI, Komplete 6. I got a good deal, on a brand new one…
So anyways, for the last 7/8 years that I have been music producing, I have been trying to record my guitar playing, "cuz that’s what I do, I am jazz guitarist. its specifically why, I wanted to learn how to produce music. erm, to record my guitar. ) I’m going in circles… lol.
So, over the last years, I have had so much trouble getting everything to mesh. “getting electronic beats, and synths, to mesh with my guitar playing.” Its been really difficult. I thought I was really close a year ago, but now its a year later and now, “wow, I am getting really close.”
Now… My guitar is, “a little rusty,” because I have had to focus so much on the music production side. But now I know the music production, and what I want from it well enough, that I can kinda do, “music and guitar at the same time now.” Which… I am ok with. I can’t believe how hard it was to get here.
So anyways… This is jazz. Yes I know the scales I am playing. Yes I know why the polysynth is playing those particular chords around and around. This totally qualifies as jazz, “because I know what I am talking about,” and this is not, “beginners luck.”
Ok… So… 100% produced, mixed, mastered, recorded in Renoise + vst synths/effects.
Thank you so much for reading my rather long rhetoric, and cheers for the listens, I hope you are all well
