    I love this! It's got kind of a sad but still happy vibe. I'd love to hear a longer version.

    Who are these holes of asses? Well, I was expecting something really bad. I was pleasantly pleased by this one. Nice chill sound man. Great job and respect for rocking some hybrid-style country.

    The airship rises,
    your cargo is our past.
    It doesn't get high!
    Pull it back,
    people sighing.

    I'd try adding some strings to spice the progression up a little bru. Nice, melodic piece.

    Hi Michael,
    this is a ballad of a disappointed one. The question I ask myself is who the A ... is now. But I miss your otherwise great creativity. That doesn't mean this track is bad. No, you've already done something similar and this deep part of the song is something I like so much about you and your compositions. I immediately thought of your track for werewolf, even if it is even more reserved. Sometimes it doesn't take much to say a lot anyway. Your voice would have been perfect here. I miss the soft yet powerful sounds of your vocal machine. Have a nice day / evening my brother!

    haha, very sage words! yes i did pursue this same expression for some time, i have been known for beating dead horses. honestly, ive been away from the guitar for some time and im starting to yearn for it, so look out. and my damn voice, my cat has my tongue and i cant find the rest of it anywhere so, between those two things i have plenty of practice to do. im glad youre listening, Matthias!

    sublime simplicity, at least on the face of it. it does all it needs to, tugs at the heart strings with an uplifting sadness. well thats what i think anyway :)

    Reply by xstokes

    thats the crucial thing with me is fighting the urge to overplay things start going right, i get excited, now its all fucked up. and a loopstations unforgiving. so your comment means a lot!

    Precioso tema amigo Mike, con mucho sentimiento, de los que te llegan al corazn. Esas guitarras te cuentan una historia, ms que triste lo veo tierno, romntico para bailar lento, abrazado a la persona que ms quieres. Me gusta ese sonido envolvente, intimista, es muy adecuado para vivir y disfrutar de esa intimidad. Otro enorme trabajo querido amigo, que tengas un buen da compaero. Salud y paz.

    Ballad of an asshole...Hmmm must be some Ballad because it sure doesn't sound like it, judging by this you certainly captured something spectacular!...sounds lovely this has those heart pulling elements similar but not the same obviously as the gentlemen sir robin (CF) has running through his music. Nonetheless this is very good! work here as always. Pulchra Musica.

Description : Here attached is a new country tune I put together using several loops I bought off a disk set. I call it 'Old Tyme Country' as it is close to being Bluegrass as well. (Bluegrass usually has a Mandoline, Fiddle and a 5-string Banjo, and a rhythm guitar at least).

This instrumental features no guitars or regular drums. Rhythm here is provided by a Dulcimer, a Shaker and a drum like instrument called a Djembe. (An instrument from Africa, looking like a tall Bongo drum)

An acoustic stand-up Bass is used along with a 4 string Banjo, and the Fiddle is the main instrument.
Put all these together and this is the sound you can have. Hope you'll like it.

Description : Hi ya,

Well, here is my latest country tune...called "Welcome to Nashville". It is an instrumental. Maybe someone will add vocals to it? Also I added a screenshot of the 'ProTools' program I used to put the song together so you can see what it looks like with in a software program as completed.

The song is uptempo featuring an acoustic guitar for rhythm, also an electric rhythm guitar doing more of a vamping sound to add in fill to the overall rhythm.

Also has lead guitar which is quite busy throughout, and Drums, Bass, fiddle and pedal steel round out the song.

Hope you like it.

This should be classed as Country Rock or Southern Rock but those genres aren't available.
Using a fender Strat on the left, Gibson Les Paul on the rightintro lead is the LP and outro lead is the Strat. Drums written in MIDI. Harmonica, vocals, bass performed by yours truly.

Description : Just a simple country waltz featuring a number of instruments, and the main instrument...Pedal Steel guitar. Not an easy instrument to play and certainly not a cheap instrument to buy. Decent new ones start out at around $2,500, but like everything else, if you have the desire, 'you can do it'.
Drums, Fiddle are sample loops. Contains 2 rhythm guitars..one with tremelo. Piano, and the usual Lead, Bass guitar.
Near the end.....they all play at once together.

Description : This is my first serious attempt at a country song.
I am playing all instruments except for the drums....they are MIDI.

I hope you enjoy.
