Description
Good friends of mine got married a few weeks ago. I was one of the groomsmen. An honor. This is for them. This was a much longer work. Too long, so I took the main themes and condensed it. No reason for repeats. Added sax in lieu of the lyrics

May need some more obsessive compulsive tweaking.

At any rate. Here it is, as is.

Yes. Firsties. Thanks for the cool comment. So much is software driven these days that expressing ideas is all it really is. But I'll take the credit for it. Helps to have inspiration.,, and good friends; like you.

Love. Ain't it great?

Too much echo? The ending. Need to go back and look at that again. Thought everything was tied down. Either way... Having fun

Andy, a somber reflective song. Yeah, this would suit a few words. Exceptional playing with a real authentic mood set from the lungs and metal. It is always a pleasure to hear anything that has you playing on. Cheers Andy.

Henke
thanks - interesting comment... the sax - or I should say, interaction between idea / mouthpiece to tone is much more expressive than I alone. so far have not found a digital instrument mimicking the sax that can come close to the subtleties of embouchure - muscle and diaphram control... I just know that someone is working on it. analog lives on.
Check out my latest song called Tommy Cat
Henke said 2096 days ago (July 27th, 2011)
Right
A digital instrument can "never" mimic an analog. Their strength lies instead in creating a variety of sounds that could not have been made by an(y) analog instrument. But then again, music is emotion and emotion will probably always be most truly played through an analog instrument. (Beside the sax, another fav is the cello, btw...) /Henke

michael2 said 2096 days ago (July 27th, 2011)
wow
this is really nice. I envy your ability to play horns. the one thing I can't fake with MIDI. beautiful melody and chord progression. I keep hearing a remix that is reminiscent of Air, but with the vocal pad sounds that 10cc used in "I'm not in love." very nicely done.

I read everyones comments and I try to just put down my own opinion.
This is a Beautiful Song! The sax does says it All for sure, but I imagine some vocals in this would be just awesome also. I think we all second guess our own work but I feel our own material kind of evolves in time. and gets better and better the more we perform it. What a very lucky Bride and Groom to get such a great gift . Great Work Andy ! I truly love this song !

Love inducing. A real beauty Andy.
Ok, I may be not completely right because nobody mentioned it, but I think the sound of the strings solo @2:15 is no match for the exquisite finesse of the sound of your sax during the rest of the song.
