Description
A determined, busy street struttin, dirty & nasty lydian stroll.

After finally getting a new keyboard March 9, 2007, I wanted to get something out to break the ice.

Put together quickly, I used a few loops for rhythm, and my keyboard to use the available sounds in Garageband and the Jam Packs.

GUINESS
I love guiness. Fun number here. Sounds to me like it's a lydian flat 7 stroll. With the inclusion of the B flat plus the predominant use of the notes C, D, E and F# it has more of a whole-tone scale or cell sound to me. Nonetheless very interesting. Makes me want to take a stroll....down to the pub....for a Guiness!

Thanks and
Your right on all accounts on the lydian stuff and I dig your stuff too. You care about the details.

Didn't spend a lot of time on this one, just wanted to get the juices going since it's been a couple of months. Now that I have a keyboard again, hope to be more active with Garageband on top of the 8 to 5, and two big band rehearsals a week. Only so much time.

Thanks for the comment and the listen.

Got some nice layering here...
...I like the fading and reintroduction of the different instrument themes.

Like to hear a screamin' guitar in there (no surprise), but not upfront...more in the background. Coming and going.

Nice groove.

You Volunteering?
You got gear to doctor it up some more, your welcome to add those guitar lines. I can hear them too, unfortunately, I can't play'em. It's predominantly a C lydian flat 7 scaler tune. You can play on that or go outside a bit between the fault lines. Let me know if you want the files.

Just got the gear...
...let me get used to it for a while. I need to practice using GB and then how to do the collaborations. Once that's done, I'm on it...
Need to practice my electric a bit, too. All acoustic, lately.

Cool
I especially like the squiggly wide stereo synth. Reminded me of the Meters, maybe with a wee bit of Devo thrown in.

Thanks
Thanks for listening. Just used what was available in the synth sounds to add some contrast. Hope to do something more next time. This was just to get the ball rolling again.

nice and edgy
i like the edginess - the individual trax seem to come up against each other in unexpected ways, with the groove holding it all fast. very interesting! anne
damiengh said 4539 days ago (March 19th, 2007)
thanks
Thanks for listening. Hopefully the edginess wasn't too edgy. It takes some measures in to get used to listening to that mode (lydian), but hopefully the beat kept one progressing forward enough till it took hold in the ear.

I put together fast and I probably should have did a better mix for the conga was a bit loud and I could have used some guitar lines. Just wanted to get creating again. Thanks again.

Great groove!
The music really does kinda stroll along...Nice understated funky groove. Love the change up/build up mid-way. Had me gently bobbing my head and doing a little neck crane.

Be well!
