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 ๐Ÿ˜‚

So I hope you enjoyed A Short Intelude and yes there are other tracks to come. I might even sing a bit too…

  3. Wow, beautiful video and music and photo. There’s a distinct sound appearing several times as if a piece of metal scratching. I guess it is deliberate, right? A unique feature of the Jasmine Fall. What a name. I love it.

    • Thank you so much for appreciating what I have put together here regarding this recording. The piece of metal scratching is actually my left hand sliding up and down the guitar neck when using bar chords. You do hear this a lot with many songs, ii’s just they have very good mixing equipment to reduce or minimise the impact of the sound.

  4. Dear Sean,

    Thank you for sharing with us your “Short Interlude At Jasmine Falls”, the beginning of one of your guitar projects. May you develop your instrumental song further to your satisfaction!

    I shall reciprocate with my own composition called “Country River“, which is a musical quiz. No one has been able to fully answer the quiz yet. Perhaps you can! Here are the clues: the piece contains two folk tunes and one national anthem. See if you can identify them.

    May you enjoy the music to your heart’s content!

    • Hello SoundEagle, I enjoy the richness and fullness of sound regarding your compositions. I can hear the title reflected in each composition, which I think is what each muscian tries to achieve. “I’ll Always Be With You” evokes those mellow jazz tones I like and reminds me of those iconic characters played by Humphrey Bogart. I also like very much “Till Eternity” with its swing feel and possible gliding on the dancefloor. Keep composing ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Than you so much for your very kind words. My aim is to keep recording those pieces I have tinlered with over the years, as well as new stuff. Maton adhere to CITES re is sustainable approach to using Aussie timbers in their guitars. When the kids were doing music at school, I would often find the guitar pictured in this post had gone with them, rather than use their own – its sounds better dad ๐Ÿคฃ

    • Thank you for your awesome support, Janis. I wrote this one a long time ago. Anyway, there will be others: The Blues in Tangiers, When the Cherry Blossom Blooms and Rise Above the Storm, to name a few!
