Me Time, G3 and Audacity, original, ambient

Post by Beatnick » Thu Nov 08, 2018 1:26 pm

Listen to Me Time

This was recorded about 3 years ago. There is not much to say about this "song". I was trying to use the G3 to get a sitar like sound and this is what I came up with. Recording was very simple, I recorded directly into my computer while using the looper. It was all done in one take and then I edited the beginning a bit to keep it from being too long and repetitive. I kind of wish I had done a little more variety instead of repeating the same riff over again. Maybe one day I'll add some simple percussion or keyboard to give it a little more variety. Enjoy.

It is pretty, although a little short. You did capture an Indian sound. You could add some chanting over this. The artist Krishna Das does songs that contain one or two looped musical motifs (I guess you'd call them that) and chants over top of them. Some of his work is really good (although it all starts sounding the same after a few songs). I am very interested in songs build around a chord progression that is looped the entire song. Some of the most popular songs are made like that.

Ya it seems more like an idea than a fully realized song. It sounds good. I like the sitar effect. Keep working on it. Glenn

Thank you The Cracks and Lungfruit. I appreciate the input. I actually recorded it about 3 years ago and it was really just intended to be a quiet, end of the album song. I haven't really recorded much since then though. Just some little jams and equipment testing. Only just now did I really listen to it and hear how much room there is for improvements. I'm considering putting this on my R8 and seeing what I can come up with.
