Noodling for a short video

Post by 12bar »

Just some simple lines for background music.
Avatar vst for the ambient sound, some vst strings and my guitars.
I used the main theme/chords a while ago and without new idea I made another version. :whistle:

We paddled to the Dutch/German border, there's an old pile from 1938 in the bay.

:clap: I have really liked your music for these sort of videos and this is no exception.

You have captured a sense of calm serenity and happiness in the music - which I assume is what you get from being on the water. :cool:

Another video noodling - inspired by "Taste of Blues".
Recorded drums (vst), bass, keys and guitar - no BT used.
Tried to get into a flow, but having not enough time for a one take record it's a bit crippled. Anyway - have fun. It's a tour through my hometown on the water.

I enjoyed that trip Gerd! :clap:

Well crafted track whatever your reservations, and my praise for to you for how good it is with no BT!
I liked the more rapid guitar to coincide with the speeded up film.

The canals look very well maintained and clean. A lot of canals I've experienced in the UK show signs of age, decay, crime and neglect.

Another one, tried a chord sequence with different vsti's and some guitar. Originally it was more, but Reaper crashed again and again killing the ASIO driver. Took a long time to figure out it was a bad vst plugin, because after each crash I had to reboot. :wall:
Anyway, used the remaining part, doubled it and that was it.

Excellent job - despite the technical issues you've come up with a perfect style of soundtrack for the video. :clap:

Good job in getting feeling into the VST track as well as the guitar part. Good choice of key too! :thumbsup:
