    "Twilight Rain"

    http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/...d=2302&alid=-1

    this is a new 'rendition' of a song i originally wrote in 1999.

    this is only guitars, bass, and vox...
    a different, future full blown version with drums, and slightly slower, is in the works.

    this was recorded in 'MAS' mode, which on my 18 track machine (Roland vs1880), turns it into an 8 track machine.
    yikes.
    why did i do that?
    LOL





    -comprised of 7 guitar tracks, 4 vocal tracks, a bass track, wind chime and rain/thunder tracks.

    14 tracks in all, bounced down to 6, mixed to 2.

    The rain sample at the beginning is too indistinct - even with a reasonable amp & h'phones it sounded like noise & ended very abruptly so that it seemed the tape moise ended suddenly.
    The music - your voice reminds me in eaqual parts of the fellow from Yes & Robert Wyatt.
    the music is Yesish as well.
    Very nicely played.
    Is that a drum I hear thudding occasionally in the background or are you tapping the plate on your guitar?
    The bass sound is almost Proggy Genesis except yours is fatter - I prefer yours.
    Nicely done, I kept looking for a Roger Dean LP Cover to roll on.
    Beef up the rain or get a more destinct recording of it.
    Some percussion would be nice.
    Very lovely nevertheless.

    rayc-
    thanks for listening...
    good ear, on the rain track....
    i went back last night, and re-mixed the entire thing, with a different angle on the EQ's and the levels and pans.
    i'll post soon...
    i brought the rain up quite a bit, re-eq'd it so it'd sit pretty, and more evenly blended it in and out of the sections where it is.....

    Yes is a name that pops up quite often, when i do certain kinds of songs (like this one)

    i'm a huge Yes fan, but they were never an influence..
    meaning, i never learned any of their songs, and only sang any of them in the shower.
    LOL

    i guess that's a good thing, that it reminds somebody of anything!
    maybe i should really break out my close to the edge album, eh?
    that, and Fragile.

    any percussion, would have to be hitting the guitar... there's nothing else in there....

    thanks again for listening....

    106 listens, as of right now, and only one comment...
    hm.

    either no one's into mellow tunes, the mix sucks donkey tail, or my breath stinks.

    I enjoyed it. I thought that everything sounded pretty well done. Maybe the vocals were a bit too loud, but thats always a tough standard to determine with those kinds of songs because they are so vocal intensive.

    One other thing, the song was a bit long for my tastes. The volume seemed to drop during the guitar solo section, so I thought it was ending, and for some reason that felt like the natural ending on the song. But that is probably just me because those are a personal taste issue.

    But aside from that I thought it was a good song. Nice guitar tone. Whats your guitar rig?

    nice track. i too found the rain at the beginning confusing, sounded like white noise at first, then i got it. not sure if that's a bad thing, sometimes it's cool when you finally "get" something. other than that, a very nice recording. everything sounds bright and airy. maybe a touch weak in the low-end, but beyond that, a fine job!

    I'm digging that I may not have much recording/musical advice because I'm a newbie.. but I love the song. It sounds great
