Among the trees
Happy with this one. A song about the feeling of awe of finding myself alone walking in the woods near my hometown near a fire watchtower when out wandering with friends on a clear evening.
I had trouble with direct-in on my guitar so I mic’d it up my amp, but isn’t exactly the tone I had dreamed of – a little tinnier than my ideal tone but I think it mixed alright.
Fairly pleased with working with the GarageBand pre-programmed drummers, I usually just make songs sans a rhythm section, so it was fun to play guitar off of the beat on one of these.
Had written a chunk of another track that was even more jingle-melody focussed but a few days ago it gave me the ick and I got frustrated with it enough to pivot to this tune instead.
Happy with the final product, though I could see this being denouement to a long slow-burn-of-a-song to earn that half-time energy.
Hope you enjoy!
Looking for feedback on
Did I capture the energy right? Do the drums work? Does it need to be part of something bigger?
