i wrote this one some time back, as an instrumental.
i got the idea for the lyric, from a very strange dream i had,
and the music just seemed to fit.


this is a first mix,
curious to know if there are any translation issues, or mix ideas you might have.

In my best Tommy Chong voice, "Heavy man!"

I love the middle eastern feel. I can hear you throwing in some middle eastern modes in your solo.

hey michae1
thanks for listening

the bass track resulted from about 6 different attempts, with different pickup, tone, gain and styles,
the one i ended up using was my favorite.
that's a carvin LB70 bass with active electronics, thru my pedalboard, with some boost and compression, and into a sansamp bass di.

but in a dream state, anything is possible.

so much of the work i'm doing now, is really just about learning how to mix in a new DAW (presonus studio one)

for example,
For the vocal section, I played two keyboard parts, panned right and soft right,
and used a stock Wurlitzer and stock B3 organ plug with some effects in the plug on each.
Used my maudio keyrig direct to usb to play the keys. The presonus studio one sampler is called presence XT.

Two rhythm guitar parts, panned left and soft left.

Bass is the Carvin LB70 with the active electronics into my pedalboard, and into a sansamp bass di.

The beginning is interesting, I used a glass slide and miced my cab, using my usacg strat…

I played two different keyboard parts, don’t remember exactly what they were, but one was an electric piano for sure…

For the reverse lead in to the vocal section:
Starting on a common downbeat,
I played 8 guitar parts backwards, along with a bass, and two new keyboard parts…
I hit a note on each part, and let it decay… or in the case of the gainy electric parts, let it feedback…
Then I flipped them all backwards, and line them up against the downbeat of the lyric section.

Got some good, different stuff going on there.

To me, some Dream Theater overtones. Nice steady direction with a little break.

Lots of production work went into the intro. Tasteful, geared towards the title.

Nothing screaming at me that sticks out needing a fix. I'm sure the 24 bit original sounds better than the SoundCloud cut.

hey eddie of the falcons...
yes, lots of production in this,
even tho it's a very simple song, that could be played with one guitar.

i wrote it on guitar, but learned how to play it on piano, and started with the piano on this one.
i'm just starting to dig into what is available with studio one, as far as keys and synths, and it's a lot.

the 24 bit does sound quite a bit better, i'll post a link to a 24 bit 48k file as soon as i finalize the mix, and get some advice on that file.
thanks for talking about it
