Topic: "Train To Oregon"

    "Train To Oregon"

    Another piece; certainly not complicated ... very tonal.

    Written from an acoustic guitar demo. Period.


    I had a bass-player friend that always used to preach to me about subdivision. Something beyond the whole note... He was also a classically-trained trumpet player. ALL rock-n-roll guitar players should be forced to 'study' under schooled musicians*. Perspective is always good. Is it not?

    *Not sure that the inverse is true...

    Percussion too loud, I know. A persistent issue of mine. Mixing on cheap PC speakers...

    First, yes - a bit loud. - the drums.

    You know, I almost moved to oregon; but now moving east to south carolina.

    I think subdivision and counterpoint are very important and helpful; gives more interest when used in balance.

    It is hard to hear the guitar. Did you do any major panning?
    Overall, nice melody and transitions. Very pleasant and professionally suitable for your purpose.

    Much enjoyed Phillip.

    Also, like the new font.

    Reading your last comment:

    Buy a nice set of headphones. May help with mixing issues. The wider the frequency range the better.

    I bought a ticket to ride on your "train." It was a
    very picturesque, folksy ride and I loved the simplicity
    but overall beauty you crafted when writing this piece.

    "Train to Oregon" is very indicative of its title. Might
    even be a great cinematic piece. I think so......

    Great work, Phillup

    Your kick drum is thirty-seven times too loud. It would be just about right for a heavy metal tune.

    I will give it another listen when you do your remix.

    A nice tune aside from the balance issues. Fire the drummer.

    I seem to get a parking page on this, Phillip...
    perhaps you might post a working link when
    you have a moment so us chronically late
    types have a chance to listen... lol?
