A Short Interlude At Jasmine Falls – An Instrumental Piece by Me!
So, this afternoon I thought I would quickly put down a piece of music on SoundCloud (only about 100 years overdue, but you get that).
This is the opening to an instrumental song I wrote on the guitar a long time ago. It’s not the best recording in the world, but I had fun.
The piece consists of two tracks: my very clumsy picking of a major seventh progression with a short lead overlay.
The interesting thing is, as soon as I published it, I had some instant likes. I’m not sure if they really did like it, because of how quick it was liked, but I appreciate the support anyway.
The guitar projects I have been working on this year have had one delay after another, but here I am, on the verge of making it all happen, well it needs to be by November all being well. My playing partner Tony and I have committed to finalising our play list so that we can meet out musical event obligations later in the year. Then my very good friend Steve “The Tiger,” Lane or Lois for short has kindly invited me to hangout his group which would make six guitars in all (The Eagles anyone?). Apart from that, Steve and I over the last few days have started putting together a parody regarding lockdowns using Gerry Rafferty’s Baker Street. Steve’s handy on the sax, so he has promised to dust it off as we pull this thing together. Our rendition is a follow up to Laney of the Undercroft which he and I composed a long time ago when we resided at UWA. It was quite something to listen to at 2:00AM in the morning. Steve added the more interesting lyrics 😂
