Re: You wanna deep dive into Chicago Blues...

Nice! :dance: But slide on pinky doesn't work for me. :icon_whoknows: It was the same for me. :sad: Until I got a decent quality made to measure glass slide from Diamond Bottlenecks. Huge difference. I like the better mix you can do of fingered single notes and chords plus the slide when the pinkie...

Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

I'm afraid in the UK we have political parties mainly inhabited by people who think that lies are acceptable and use them so regularly that it's become a habit that they can't break. All these lies then spawn a mistrust by the public in those in power and contributes to the disregard for orders give...

Re: Back to the blues...

"The Blues After a While" just exudes blues-iness! Seems your exploration of far-east music hasn't stopped you channelling Delta. :thumbsup:

"Sunburst64..." singe sweetly too. A treat to hear both these recordings Fenson! :D

Re: More Gills in a Pink Fish

That's some choppy waters to battle - good video and the music does fit - well done. :D Was that a roll at the end? :yikes: So far no members of the close family have had issues with Corona. I've just been given details of an appointment for the first dose of a vaccine - involving a 60 mile round tr...

Re: Hanging MIDI notes

Great video. Majestic views and beautiful music - nice arrangements and sounds! :clap: Not so keen on the majestic steep slopes and loose crumbly rocks and stones. :D But I'm a vertigo sufferer. :sad: Going back to the hanging notes I saw that there is a button to click in the Cherry Audio Polymode ...

Re: REMEMBER THE MAC

Remembered, and Mac was such a good man and good friend who should be remembered fondly.

It hurts that the list of those to remember with sadness keeps growing.

Re: Hanging MIDI notes

I'm afraid i can't help on that - i do have various occasional problems with MIDI (mainly due to my lack of knowledge) but I've not had hanging notes. Have you tried a different MIDI keyboard? There's a SoundOnSound forum thread on hanging MIDI notes in Reaper - don;t know if it's of use / if you've...

Re: Blue Noodles

Not for the first time I found myself loving the freedom allowed to the player when letting blues into the music! :cool: There were a few times when trying to add the organ track that I wished I wasn't being quite so much free-form. :roll: Thanks for listening and being positive guys! :thumbsup:

Blue Noodles

Acoustic parlour guitar. As few notes as possible - suiting my relaxed mood.
A bit bluesy - close to being a one chord vamp. Bit of sparse organ thrown in.

Not my usual!
Too minimal??? :icon_whoknows:

Re: Ambient

Thanks Fenson! :thumbsup: I've recently watched a commercial film on dvd where there was an extra about the music soundtrack. The composer of the film score mentioned he'd used the Paul's Stretch software a good deal to incorporate stretched sounds into the film soundtrack. It was quite a low budget...
