Tepee

Woudn't it be great to have a house the price of a Tepee? :)

In a house like the famous Spellings, such as Tory, it could be tough to even be a family cause you are so spread out like in that mansion! But there must of been some cemented nice relationships due to a tepee:) They had to get along, cause it would be miserable if they didn't :^)!

Great playing and
with a great rhythm - love the percussion, and the rolling guitar pushing the whole track along. What kind of effect is that on the second guitar? Works well, I think, against the "clean" sound of the other guitar. Very nicely done. (I bet my teenager would love to live in a teepee, by the way. Maybe I'll suggest it...) Nice work. Thanks for sharing. Peace.

It's great!
The constant pushing beat is really nice, and as usual, the recording is so nice and clean. Interesting color instruments used there, too.

Nice piece of work BIll
Very interesting dynamics between the two guitars and the drums and percussion. Nice changes and as always the playing sounds flawless.
The second guitar at times sounds kind of like a sitar.

Thanks for posting this one Bill, I really like what you've done here.

Be well my friend

wonderful piece
always love to see a new post from you, I particularly like the celtic feel that this one has to it and the percussion. I have to take this opportunity to tell a teepee story -- my ex-wife, who hated camping and would never agree to go, ended up marrying a man who lived in a teepee. The irony of love is a wonderful thing...

Peace,
Paul

Tepee
UTF,

hope I didn't raise nightmares for you !

I know it is no piece of cake for couples in a small place like that,especially to live for long periods.

I know my wife and I and two kids at the time had a 35 foot SouthWind RV. We lived in that for about 6 months for the possibility of building a bouse. But we realized that even that was too small.

My hats off to families, especially historically that lived in such a small area. Incredible I think. Sounds like you really were into camping sorry your ex wife was not (at the time) interested.
Cause love can go out the window if one of the spouses is not happy were they are living and the other is a fanatic about it.

Enjoyed your comments!

Geronimo!
I can appreciate how your notes tap into that American Indian music vein...and the percussion has a horse trot shuffle to it, those harmonics muster images of old american cheif ghosts in my head...what is that second intrument that comes in? cant tell if its keys, guitar, flute etc...
very enjoyable song Bill!
thetiler said 3379 days ago (January 28th, 2008)
I think it is the Turkish Saz Zither
you are referring to. That is the part at the start and other sections as well.
I used a bunch of plug ins in Logic 8 to obtain the sound I wanted for it, including the Fat Equalizer, Chorus, Adaptive Limiter, Space Designer for a tad of reveration etc. I used my 49 e synth to finger the sounds, with touches of the pencil

I tried by G20, Strat and was goinna go with other sounds but then I got a bit wacky. I was happy with the way the Turkish Zither sounded in the loop browser of World Jam Pack and though I would add it cause it provided some substance to it when I used alterations of chords at the beginning of the piece.Of course what is great about that is that you can add chrods and finger a basic chord that you like and can move up and down accordingly to obtain the chord sequence you like, taking away notes or adding"Alimar-ingly" :^)

Thanks Tom for posting!

I always
appreciate your unique perspective and your ability to draw inspiration from the seemingly mundane. Yet you make such a valid point. Our family lives in a small cape yet there is more than enough space for us to disappear and spend time apart. Ironically enough, the past 4-5 years we've been camping/ RV'ing together so that we are forced to rely on conversation and comfort that comes from being close together...which (the ironic part) brings us closer as a family. Certainly can't complain about that!

Bill- outstanding playing, as always. Thanks for the food for thought as much as the song!

Thanks AC
Yes, I remember my dad and mom going to Camp Meeker which is about an hour or so drive near San Francisco. I used to love it there. So many things to do. I was never into camping but what a great life in the country for kids. But then when I turned about 11 I got into little league and all the country stuff kinda went out the window :) But to this day going to the country on weekends has such a dear, dear place in my heart !

Can't hold this one back!!
How can one not move to this great tune! Wonderful playing, driving, insistent beat, and the way you hit those harmonics! Do you overdub to get the equivalent of 20 fingers? :o) Seriously, a terrific tune Bill. Glad to have found you!

All the best,
Doug

no
this tune is not overlayed with other guitar parts. There is of course other instrumentation I added in logic 8 but not the guitar.
The fingerstyle guitar is straight fingerstyle solo and I overlayed latter with the Turkish Zither synth, bass, percussion etc.

Thanks Doug for stopping by!

sooooooo good
bill - i can't tell you how much i enjoyed this piece.
oh sure i can!
8)
it's bursting with color, texture, and vibrant non-stopable energy. the "horse trot shuffle" percussion nuzzled my ear nicely. the change at ~1:30 was perfect. what a wonderful piece. this is comin with me to the office to blast when my fellow workers are gone. you are one talented player! anne
jiguma said 3377 days ago (January 30th, 2008)
Love the change up Bill
Just when I was getting comfy, you lifted the tune. Relentless hihats and congas add to your typically excellent playing. I like all the synthy bits, but would actually like to hear just the guitar track on its own - no synths, no percs. I think that would sound really good too.
Good one Bill,
Neil

Cure for depression...
This song has such a jolly and uplifting air around it. I can listen to this on a gloomy day, and it can deceive me into thinking that everything is bright and sunny outside. I do need this kind of imaginations specially here in sub-zero Minnesota! Thanks, Bill, for the musical antidepressants you give us every time!

expanding horizon
I had to check this out, because co-incidentally I just came across a photo of me taken in front of a Souix tepee at Pipestone, Minnesota, on a family camping trip back in 1962. (We slept a tent ... the tepee was on display at the national monument!)

Another refreshing tune - with a highly enjoyable mix of sounds jamming along with your excellent guitar work.

Your musical horizon keeps expanding: in this song it's as wide as the Great Plains : >

Your music
is not really to my taste, but I can appreciate your guitar playing, if I was half as good as you I would be very happy! I always enjoy listening to your intricate style.

Sweet!
Good as anything you have done Bill! Leastwise creating a nice backing track. You have been more virtuouso on the guitar when it is just your fingerpicking but this just has such a nice overall sound! You don't need to hear it from me with all of the fans you have but great job as usual!

nice work. You know, a wooden flute or recorder would work well in this too. The Zither you described above gives a nice contrast that works so well, but "Turkish" didn't really strike me as I was listening, I just saw your comment to Tom W...
