Description
This is a preview of a tune I'm working on. It doesn't have an official title, yet. I've got some of the lyrics and some of the ideas down. I may remix it or wait. There are some minor latency issues, I'm overlooking, as well as bass timbre. I will probably redo this one someday, if it has any goodness to it! I might recheck the frequencies...

Used perc loops. Hand plucked keyboard parts. Kind of a new style for me.

Thanks man! It's been a real puzzle. But mostly a time issue. I'm glad you took the time to listen.

Maurice!
I'm glad you are enjoying this thing. I needed to know weather or not to keep working on it. It was really drab for awhile. So I had to add parts to spice it up. I thought lyrics would help. I haven't been too inspired, yet.

Thank you!

I'm happy for your kind comments, man! Whatever I add to this, I'm guessing it will need to be dramatic.

Lots of potential
Good sound choices and space for collab additions it seems to me.

I couldn't hear any latency issues. But you may be hearing the 'sticky notes' as you play your keyboard. You can always move the notes by hand if they record out of place.

Andrew!
I'm glad you aren't hearing any issues... :) I'm being overly critical. I am using my computer keyboard. I play the chords as best as I can, then tweak the notes. But, I have what I need, eh?

Those
latency issues could easily be the heart and soul of this song. I dig the ambient buzz (coming from your mic'd guitars?). Very real vibe here.

sonnyjim!
Yes Sonny, I think you might be right about the heart of it. Too, I have to change that old battery in my condenser mic. But it does add a bit of warmth, I'm thinking... ;) Thanks for your generous comments!

Hey Guy!
Thanks! I'm kind of at a pause with it, waiting for time and inspiration. But it's definitely got some work as well as tweaking.

you are definitely onto a start of a great song here Doug. Don't force or rush this one........... and don't leave on the wayside.

I'm not kidding when I say can be a epic piece.

Very pretty Doug.
You really should bring this one to a complete finish. It's just too gorgeous not to.

Write some sad words and have a female sing either the whole thing or share the vocals with you.

Color me MOVED!

Be well friend!
