Just finished this sucker. . .
Spent all night writing, sequencing and then, finally, "mixing down". It's a rough mix, so I would appreciate any comments on making the over all sound better.
It's temporarily titled "Repeat that Cliche". There's a number of musical cliche's, actually. Some are chord progressions, one is a musical line that's been "quoted" in MANY-A-SONG/Instrumental, etc., etc. My goal, actually was to finish this to add to my "Holiday CD" that I give as gifts to friends and family. So, for good for for bad, it took a few "musical cliche" stuff, mixed it together and came up with this piece! LOL! Another goal, I should add, is simply to WRITE MUSIC! I need to practice and this piece has provided me a wonderful time to practice putting "pencil to paper" and recall compositional and arranging skills learned long ago.
Anyhow. . . I'm tired but extremely happy to be doing some music writing. As mentioned before in other posts, writing music is exercising atrophied muscles for me. It hurts but it feels good in the end.
So. . . here's my latest. . . Repeat that Cliche . I will change the title for this year's "Holiday CD", of course. But for now, the title fits the music! LOL!
Enjoy. . .
P.S. This number is 80% Garritan sound libraries (JABB, GPO and Stradivari). The "guitars" are Chris Heins Guitars and Music Lab's RealStrat. This bass is from Wizoo Sounds. Everything else. . . Garritan! (You're one great guy, Mr. Gary! )
PPSS . . . I notices that THIS post marks my 666th post! Not a good sign. . . .
