    Default A new tune

    Finished this one recently. It's a sad song, but I hope you enjoy it. Comments welcome and encouraged.

    Is the percussion you knocking on your guitar? It works well for the tune. I liked the modern flamenco-ish feel to the song at the beginning. There were a lot of unexpected instrument sounds going on about 2/3rds of the way towards the end.

    Thanks for listening! That is indeed me knocking on my guitar for the percussion. And unexpected in a bad way or good way? Sounds at the end = ehru (which I legitimately performed on the real instrument), a horn VST played with a midi keyboard, glass slide + ebow, some filter and tremolo effects, a very tiny bit of piano, and some layered up clean guitar.

    Not in a bad way, but I couldn't place one of the instruments (the ehru?) which was throwing me a bit.

    Beautiful mate. Funky, soulful and relaxing! Very creative layering, from the ebow swells to the exotic instruments. Would love to hear more like this.

    Gotcha. Yeah, the ehru was the main bowed sound. I really like how distinct its tone is.

    Thanks for listening man! And thank you for the kind words. I do have more in this vein in development. It's always a challenge finding the time to finish projects, but my new years resolution for 2020 was to finish and release more of my music, so I hope to share more soon .
