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:

Another meditative noodling for a video... VSTi drums, sonatina orchestra, bass and a few guitar notes.

Nice update Gerd - your music captures the peace and tranquillity of these journeys so well. :clap:
I like the way you can bring those guitar sounds in that fit so well too!

When it got to the cows appearing, i couldn't help but think of Atom Heart Mother .... keyboard and guitar bringing hints of Rick and David to my mind.

I like ambience. You catch the feeling well and its much more meditative than my attempt to play ambience whit a guitar. :lefty:
A synthmusican, Oortone, composed a ambient song a couple of year ago where I tried to catch the feeling on my guitar. I
slaughtered the tune like rock :big_smile: but it turned out good anyway in the end. It´s on the album "A Fabulous Idea"
on Spotify. https://youtu.be/5k8liwtvamk U catch the ambient very sensitive and your guitarplying is a minimalistic
masterpiece of art. Listened to all of your the vids. Maybe we could mix or ideas in a collab after the summer ??? :think:

Thanks! :shy:
Actually it wasn't difficult, I used a i-VII-iv-V progression with some Sonatina VSTi's (great free VST btw!), put a simple drum groove on it and noodled along.

I like your ambient work a lot - sometimes it has a Mike Oldfield touch (and I like MO!). Wonderful! :pray:

Part of my family in quarantine, myself having a cold (not C. I hope), so time to edit some videos.
The usual noodling and vst playing. Minor/major change over the circle of fifths...

Another most enjoyable video journey. :thumbsup:

The progression might be simple but it's what you do with the phrasing and the note emphasis that makes it special! :clap:
Lovely stretches of guitar noodling too.

I'm glad you mentioned Sonatina. I'd been meaning to download it, and had forgotten about it.
