I thought it would be a cool idea to have an outlet for all musicians who come our way to have a place to share what they're working on, and obviously I love letting people hear what's going on in my brain...

I'm intending this to be part of a longer piece of music, think Mike Oldfield. At the moment it's just a short excerpt.

For people interested in such technical gubbins, on this track, I play:
Tack Piano (sampled)
Acoustic Guitar
Mandolin
Bodhran
Cajon
Solina String Machine (sampled)
Electric Organ - Bass pedals (sampled)
Electric Bass
Electric Guitar
Distorted Electric Guitar

I like that. Had to look up a couple of names (Bodhran and Cajon). I should have realized they
were percussion instruments. I look forward to hearing a bigger chunk where the time is right.

Your "In Dulce Jubilo" sounds pretty cool as well. Of course, this is still my favourite:

You turned my threadbare string of notes into something magical.

Thanks!! In Dulci Jubilo is one of my favourite pieces of "Christmas" music, and of course, it ties in with my love of all things Mike Oldfield!

Your piece was a blast to make, it was fun having a string of notes with no context to work with Very Happy

Rather than start my own topic, I'll repost this here if I may:

At a holiday resort we visit regularly, I'd noticed that the octagonal bandstand opposite the hotel was embellished by a succession of musical notes all the way round. These notes were clearly chosen for visual effect rather than as a tune----all over the place, in other words, but in 3/4 time.

Anyway, this time I wrote them down and constructed a similarly all-over-the-place accompaniment. Well, not exactly... Each chord is taken from the first note of each bar and is kept within the same confines in the bass clef as the tune is in the treble. This means that almost all chords are inverted (i.e. with a bass note other than the tonic).

For those foolish enough to try it out, the piece is to be played at walking pace, as if one were strolling round the bandstand in an anti-clockwise direction. I should add that you can start and end anywhere. Every fourth bar is cut short in the left hand to indicate the end of one of the bandstand's eight sides.

That's pretty neat, Bob. Nice build-up there. And great swirling organ towards the end. Actually, it sounds fairly complete as it stands...

Thank you, sir! I think I summoned my inner Jon Lord a little! haha.

I'll take a look at the score you posted when I get a chance to sit down and examine it (I don't read music, so I takes me a while to relate where the notes are on the stave to where they are on the keys!)

Maybe not being able to read music is an advantage where this piece is concerned. Believe me, it looks much more interesting than it sounds! Musicians of The Board, Let's Hear What You Have! Biggrin

I’ll have to show restraint, looking at my brain is already trying to turn it into ragtime.. haha

I’ve been quite busy musically this year between uploading a lot of vocal/acoustic guitar covers to YouTube and trying to pull and album of originals together.
I wrote this one a couple of weeks into lockdown and looking back at it now, my subconscious was definitely trying to get something out.. it’s one of those rare examples of a song I’ve written from start to finish in one go.
I had quite a lot of fun experimenting with different sounds here including putting double speed vocals through a vocoder and making explosion noises with my mouth for an impact sound going into the solo.
