Description
Beat The Beast is me who try to beat that git.. As I think 2009 come to be a year I have to learn the thing.
I started this one with just one drum loop so I had something to play with, after I played my keyboard using MASSIVE to get some cool dark sounds and I also mixed up some midi loops (African Marimba) using Drum 'N Bass Remix drum kit that I thought fit well to the first drum loop.. I also added a few "Texture" loops.

Okay I know I know I can't play but what a heck I am practices and have lots of fun when I doing it... So take it as it is A SKEAN GUITAR PRACTICES SONG.... All criticism is welcome I can take it... Life goes on and hopefully someday I can play... COOL.

You are off to a fabulous start with guitar!!!
I love the beats in this and especially the sound of your guitar with them. The effects are cool also, but most captivating of all, is the original style you possess when mixing. You say you used Massive to use some dark sounds, and those are really cool, especially when contrast with your guitar playing. Your guitar has a smooth , sweet harmony going on, and this really captures my attention. Another great one, my love! XOXOXO Morning Light:)*

Great fun
Loved the beats and the guitar playing sounds cool so far. Good aim to go for in 2009. But as most of the guitarists will tell you here, that you will never stop learning how to play the guitar. Keep having fun Kenta.

Hi bro
Yea I love mixing w beats as drums are my fave instrument.
I love the rhythm, it make it easier to learn/play the guitar if I have some drums first.
And you have absolutely right about learning the git thing, it's amazing instrument, I have not read any books or whatever I look at some youtube movies and so on but that is all, I'll try to hear the tones/notes and put some feelings to it BUT wow I feel Im stuck... SO hopefully 2009 I can learn some more cool riff.... Time will tell :D)

Take care

Cool beat
Yes, fun for sure, and it sounds to me like you sure can play guitar! Have you considered having a bass in there? It might add another dimension. Good stuff!

Wow
TX :D you nailed it...hum the bass is the last thing I put in to my music, this time I have to admit I forgot it..hehehe.. Maybe I was to excited as I had done the back sounds and start playing the git in one take over it.... I must go in to GB again and test w a bass.
Ones again thanks for your great support it sure helped me.

Take care

Good Production
The overall sound of the song is good. It seemed a little disjointed, that is the playing of the guitar to the beats, but still a good overall effort.

Keep up the good work!

Good start!
Or, a good ending of 2008! This is really cool, I had no idea you played the guitar, but you do it very good also. I like the beat which goes very well with this dreamy landscape. Suggestion would be to add a bass to further emphasize the beat. I think this is a very good start and I can see this song going just about anywhere. Depending on the kind of bass and added vocals, I can see this becoming a dark dance floor song, or even an earlier Nick Cave style song (late 80's)... Very good!

Hi my dear friend
long time no see :D I hope all's well.
Oh! the Git I can't say I can play BUT sure I have fun w it.
You know I bought the git when I was to US and got married BUT I had almost given up playing it... I have told my self 2009 have to be the year to learn play more with the git.

About the bass THAT was a miss :( composerclark woke me up on that thing too, so Im working with that now, BUT vocals that we have to see as Im not so good singer.
But if I can found one who want to sing on it that should be cool as I like this song a lot.

One's again TX for check it and take good care of you and yours have a great 2009

Having my
second listen...
I really love this Kenta - you definitely have a natural talent for the guitar. I also loved your last guitar blast track. This has a great beat and sound mix too. Could be much longer.
Cheers

half the battle
Half the battle of getting that guitar going, is having your head in the right place, and you have aptly demonstrated that not only here, but in alot of your other music pieces.

Your ears have a vision....go with them ears...and the guitar will follow.

Wow thanks alot
Your words means everything too me.
It make it worth all the work I put in to my songs.
You have so right about my ears I can't read a note the only thing I can is listen and put all together with the feelings I get from all the sounds/noise I'll use/make.
So one's again I'll thank you from bottom of my heart for your great support.

Have a great new year 2009 with more cool JibJab (I love it) and so on.Cheers

Sounds great!
Here's my advice on playing guitar: Just like the drums, the harder you hit the strings, the better it sounds. ;)

Really enjoyed this. Nice, thick layered sound. Some great textures in both the drums and guitars!

Thanks for sharing.

can't play guitar?
I don't believe that for a minute after listening to this....it's is really good!!

I am liking this...almost like an impromptu jam, I like the reverb-echo the guitar is making...and the drums make a very good backdrop for this....very tribal

Skean said 3246 days ago (January 2nd, 2009)
Thanks my friend
I try my very best to learn the thing, BUT it's not easy.
All this is just improvising over in my opinion cool sound bed.

Have a great 2009 and all luck with all the things you do.

Sounds good to me
There is no right way to play the guitar - so just keep beating it till you're happy. Sounds like a "son of egobandit" tune. Way to go Kenta.

You may call it practice...
...but I like it. You're musical talent obviously makes up for any guitar skills, because I can't tell you're still learning it. It's a cool ambient flow...love it.
