Description : In 1981 while working at a ski resort during summer I was driving in the local country side while a huge thunder storm was gathering...I happened to look up and saw this hang glider spiraling out of the sky in the most amazingly controlled corkscrew manoeuver I've ever seen...I pulled over and watched as the pilot at no more than twenty feet flared into a perfect three point landing..This guy was obviously a master at his craft...I strode up and offered him a lift and found out he was Juan a Brazilian hang glider expert over for the world championships at Mt Buffalo....two months later I heard that he'd been killed flying into high tension electrical cables in neigbouring New South Wales...this track is in his memory.

Description : A track I did with a friend ages ago. I play the guitar and he sang and wrote the lyrics. The lyrics came mostly from headlines in the newspaper that sunday. Recorded using a crappy old microphone direct into cubase with a few overdubs
Description : Just an acoustic/piano piece I threw together a few nights ago when coming home from university. My brother and I were doing some acoustic music together in my room, just having fun; came out with this; I immediately got on my DAW and recorded it before I forgot how ti went lol. Hoping to get some strings on it soon as well as some vocals from the bro! :P In the meantime, enjoy this instrumental.
Description : Here's a lil' acoustic instrumental I never wrote words to. Used a Guild acoustic guitar mic'd with an AKG C214 and my trusty ol' Yamaha MOX8 for other instruments (excluding shaker - that was real ;). You can find the guitar loops to this song on my profile page. Maybe one of you looperpeeps can come up with something for words on this. Otherwise, enjoy le moosic :3
Description : This is an acoustic cover of the song "Come As You Are" by David Crowder. I recorded, mixed, and mastered this one in two days! Almost done burned me out haha! Hope you enjoy!
My older brother does the lead vocals and I do everything else, from instrumentation to harmonies. No vocal-editing whatsoever in this one. The guitars were all one-take recordings. Updated the audio - I added tambourine hits in the 2nd and 3rd choruses; just helps make for a more moving song.
Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Enjoy! There is a drumless version too, with completely different atmosphere : https://www.looperman.com/tracks/detail/181322

Description : It gives me great pleasure to upload this track I did with Richie. Usually we work "backwards", with him building a track around my vocs, but this time his instrumental came first. I love it's encouraging and motivational lyrics and as always Richie's care in making EVERYTHING perfect! :-) Totally didn't know what genre to put it in. Enjoy.

Description : There were two separate tracks in work, but who knows why I got tired with them and then decided to merge them (or at least what left from them) into one piece hence they originate out of same musical purpose. No worries...no world war was ment here, except my recent personal one...haha...and you don't want to know about it.:) It's not real etude by any means, yet it's quite alot about practicing...practicing...
Description : This is my attempt at the one-hour challenge for LM (finished at 57 min 48 sec). I had to mix/master on the go and this was the result. Some bad chords here and there that I did my best to conceal, one-takes on guitar and piano and used an awesome acapella from a1000times, who wrote the words that Dikaiko sang over. I really like her voice. Anyhoo yea, I like this one a lot so probably gonna come back to this in the near future. Comments welcome.
I got the acapella here: https://www.looperman.com/acapellas/detail/7656/marauder-feat-dikaiko-by-a1000times-132bpm-dance-acapella
EDIT: This track has been updated. I think I'm going to call it finished :)
Description : I put this under acoustic even though I did use a couple midi tracks. I felt they sounded acoustic enough to put the track in that category. Suppose it could be chill out as well, however you want to label it, do so. I used an Indian flute and an electric guitar sounding plugin with some tremolo added along with acoustic guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Nothing too complicated here and I felt it sounded good enough to upload so enjoy!
Description : BEAUTIFUL guitar with pianino chords. This is sad guitar. But this guitar have a positive mood.
Description : This track contains only free loops from several Looperman artists. Had to thank once again the excellent loops to their owners - i think the result is one of my best tracks ever, plus have a slight spaghetti western like feeling which is cool ... Hope you will like it too. :)

Description : Written for Claudio's birthday (my Italian friend) in obvious waltz manner and with slight classical touch this tune appears to me almost painfully simple and minimalistic (and indeed it is)....and yet, Claudio who's very familiar with my music says that this is one of the nicest pieces of music I've ever written even if it wasn't his birthday present....well, who knows if he's right..:)^^
Very nice feel to this piece! well done!!
an acoustic track from planet... nice candy for my ears!!!
very very refreshin........background story was amazing...the changeups and progression is somethin you rarely hear in hip hop so listin to this made me envy your craft and genre....music like this heals and soothes and i feel very glad that i chose to listen to this one....very nice....keep inspiring and motivating raisin the bar for all genres to respect.....~thez
Great track..love the story behind it,as unfortunate as it was,it sets the mood and creates the perfect imagery.very nice,clean sounds and rhythm.the Bass and Guitar bring this to life,with endless possibilities,mayhaps some vocals....
Really cool tune. I like the thing going on with the panning...of course the fretless really brings the gel to the track. Who played bass on DAvid Gimour's About Face album???can't recall but the bass feels like something from that era,,,,,and that's a real good thing. I too thought the 12 string was a little thin in spots, but that's just on one listen. Won't be the last though. TK
Well, I don't know all the technical lingo but I really enjoyed that intro. The atmosphere of this takes me to a relief of some sort, a lifting of the spirits because of something left behind, something you didn't need, baggage.
Good vibes on this! May even have yourself a vocalist ;-)
Cool description mate (though it sux that the guy died). I dunno why, but this makes me think of a setting similar to the one in Monument Valley nat'l park- with the mesas, spiders, and all. Musically, this makes me think of what'd happen if INXS met up with Collective Soul and did a face-off with Steely Dan and Pearl Jam. Very nice jams here mate. Wouldn't change a single thing about it, but if I were to suggest anything it'd be to consider adding some tribal chants/singing (but that's just my craziness chimin in there). Otherwise, this is golden. Will def fave/save. Lates!
Mate brilliant, great guitar work, very nice arrangement in this piece, nice solid beat,crystal clear in the mix mate, can not fault in any form at all, goin back for another listen, loving it...Hope all is good in your neck of the woods Dave...Peace friend...elsd....
I love that fretless playing! It's SO COOL! The 12 string is a nice compliment to the jazz bass! Some of the best music I've heard on looperman! I'd fave it if I could!
What a great track Dave (and a sad story to boot). The fretless bass here is superb and the mix is top notch! Great stuff - I've taken a download for future enjoyment and would fav it if there were still such a feature.
The intro had me hooked...crazy how much a life can impact another, even in passing.
The bass is wicked in this. Very wicked. I found the guitar to be a bit... scratchy(?) at times. But it wasn't anything major.
The track paints a picture of that hang-glider in my mind...Soaring high.
Great song PJB.
Every little thing in this one shines, but it is the bass that steals the show (as it should). A beautiful sentiment and a beautiful tribute.
Another classic from one of the best. I hope all is well.
Bravo Dave. Beautiful work.
Hey man you got a great groove going here. That 12 string really made this production stand out. That Fretless Bass is so smooth. 3:50 of pure enjoyment! Filaofsoul!
man, I love this one PJB....It reminds me if something good, though I don`t recall what...beautiful sound from that acoustic (12) and everything in this one just fits like a glove and is a treat for the ears...great stuff...thanks for the DL....Ed
i listen again and again
it s only in my head
sorry when i cry
IT IS DEEP INSIDE ME
Hey Dave. This track soars with all sorts of atmosphere and emotion. Sad to hear the story behind the music. I think I'd rather do freestyle ski acrobatics off a cliff and do something that I loved doing at my last moments than waste away slowly waiting for my last day. Your friend may have met his maker quickly, but he did it doing something he loved. Great song
Your new girl has a beautiful voice ... lol
You play at your best determined in the night .... smile .....
Your new song asks me to go.
or to fly with a kite over the Andes Mountains.
With choice of very beautiful proportions of all instruments.
Reverence for your description, for this man ....
For your track only the highest grade ......
Wonderful track here.
Great intro and when the instruments come in,Wow...breathtaking.
The song floats with the moving separation of tracks that make this an experience as much as a great song,which is rare to me.
The 12string is sweet and your bass has a great tone,the notes are very clear in the mix.
That change at 2:08 made me smile with appreciation that you made those chord choices,refreshing and stay's in your theme but makes you think again,question and definitely conclude that this is a very special song worth a lot more than one four minute listen so thanks for the download.
Oh yes,the guitar picking at and on the change was perfect.
I wish you could see how many plays I gave this:)
mighty fine piece of art of expression ... the fretless bass is in the right hands for sure ... it needs fine ears and a lot of feeling for the tone to get out the best of that instrument, and you have all that attributes and two more: the ability to compose and to arrange the music you feel inside ...
me as the lucky listener is just thankful ... ;-)
Hey Dave, it's always great to hear a new one from you. This is a really sweet piece, much like the rest of your tracks. Great intro, equally great ending. The mid/ending started to go in a slightly different direction like Ensam mentioned, kinda wished it hadn't stopped. I agree with Toonz, vocals would be a nice touch but that being said, it still is a nicely produced instrumental.
Always a pleasure, thanks for sharing!
I don't know why, but this to me sounds akin to something R.E.M or somebody would do... I like it!
Just need some killer vocals now Dave :D
Ohh the sounds in the intro are absolutely Hollywood. There is some phasing going on with the acoustic guitar and the same guitar sounds a bit thin.
Anyways beside that small detail...love the bass...the fretless has it's persona sometimes and it works here perfectly. I like the sound of that snare, almost like a Slingerland Classic.
Well I think the song describes perfectly freedom. I don't know why but for some reason that's where my mind want's to go now maybe because of the up-tempo sound.
that is some exemplary music, one hella of a soundscape painting.
what more could i say? salute Dave
An amazing and wonderful work. I enjoyed every second of the track. An amalgam of sounds really rise above the clouds. A superb music.
Amazing track...Loving the acoustic guitar. Great Bass play as it fit in real nicely. Everything in general mashed up real well. Also really like the intro, set the mood.
Also guessing that near the end you brought up the bass intentionally...dont know if thats just me but I actually liked it (didnt really like it at the first listen) after listening to it a few times.
Great job and dl.
Exemplary track, as I would expect from you. Beautiful clear sound, beautiful playing and an interesting arrangement. The mid8/ending kinda reminded me of a Skynardy type thing going on but I won't hold it against you ;)
Nice one mate
Dig it....love the vibe.
