Description
I posted this song earlier as a demo called Bounce.


This is just the second version of the song. I had to post this up. John is just incredible on this. John Libby(karmatoburn) blew me away with his soloing. His playing inspired me to make some changes to the demo. I do have another version of this song coming with John and a special guest MacJammer.


Karmatoburn:Killer Keys
Hectorious: Just Bass and Other Stuff

There's the bass!
That's better. Some of the percussion is still a little abrasively scritchy,
but that may just be me (some kind of stick-hit thing at about the 1/2
mark along with the distorted guitar hits, for example.) Overall this has a
light bouncy feel, especially with KTB's touch... but that bass really
propels this along, and I'm glad to hear it better now. Nice work guys!
Interesting faux-ending too, caught me by surprise... was that supposed
to be there, or did an ET sound "excape"?
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thank you
Yes the ending was on perpose. Thanks for all the great advise.
I changed it as soon as I read your comments.

KTB still hasn't heard this version yet:0}
I put all together while his is Japan. Hopefully he'll dig it to.

I have one more version of this song coming soon with another surprise MacJammer playing on it with KTB and me.

What I'm really enjoying...
..from the two of you is an ability to make something groove while also
having a nice, melodic, musical feel to it...

I am deeply troubled by how much that graphic element looks like
Christopher Walken falling into a galaxy....

I love the round tone of the bass...

Yes it does look like him doesn't it.

Yes this really cool how you can create music from your house and send it to
somebody else across the country and world. To help you with it.
Speaking from John and myself Thanks for listening.

its allready a real nice song.

Yes
That would be really cool but I cant find anybody to do some sing for me.
You know what would be really cool if I could have a couple of sexy vocal lines
in the back ground. Let me know if your up for it Tanja;0}

Once Again, This Just Soars
Great soundscape here. KTB adds just the right touch with his keys. I like
how you stopped the soundscape, about 3/5 through, right after the
rapid snare hits, to highlight KTBs riffs. And then that relentless groove
just slides right back in. Most excellent gentlemen. Looking forward to
the next evolution.

Thanks for coming back
to give it a listen. Your right KTB just blew me away with his parts. The funny
thing is I was getting the impression he wasn't even thinking that his soloing
was that great. I told him to send those parts to me before he left the States.
Like I said earlier he still hasn't heard this mix yet.

I made this bed of music a while back but as soon as I got his parts. I wanted the
focus to be about him. I wanted the back ground to flow up and down with his
floating like melodic lines. KTB's playing really inspires me to be a better
musician and also to make my demo's better.

Again!
You guys just keep cranking out great instrumentals. Love the groove, the keys and the skritchy drums. Mellow bass just keeps everything moving forward.

well
I just wrote a comment about how groovy and sexy your tunes seems to be ... and then this site broke down annd I lost the comment before I pushed the button. Anyway... they are, and I guess it has to do with you being a bassplayer, with focus on keeping the groove going.

The soloing is brilliant!

You two are a perfect musical match!

Nice
spacey mix. I love how a track can take up as many intrepertations as
there are imaginations. Nice work KTB.

Hello Tatin
It is pretty amazing how different people(musicians) hear a song with there own
idea's in it.
I'm very happy to have you and so many other MacJammers give this tune a go.
That's all I really wanted to do with this sound bed. To get all of you thinking.
Thats what makes this place so much fun for me;0}
