This song is not in a battle


I had great fun puting this one together.

It really started out as a Jam, for the first time ever I the first track I put down was the lead, I must have been mad.

Cheers.

I used a pre-set rhythm for the solo and bridge and taped out the start on the pads.

Funny I was thinking of adding a bit of piano, but It would have too much hard work for me.

Glad you liked it.

Cheers

Ahhhh this brings back memories of a jazz bar I used to go to, where anyone could get up on the stage towards the end of the night and jam...leading to some great 'never-to-be-recorded' jams (nearly like this one had you not recorded your lead haha!). 
Considering this was a jam, did you have a metronome going when you first recorded the lead?  I only ask because it sounds like the backing drums are on time, yet I can never seem to get that to work with software drums without actually recording with a metronome playing.

I use the alesis sr-16 drum machine midi to my Yamaha workstation, which is synched to the sequencer, so I'm able to jam to it without recording it.

is the lead on a seperate track to the rest, i think its worth redoing the lead just to make it sound abit neater, and a piano would be ace, but it would have to be virtuoso playing. u could get someone else to collab on it?.
 otherwise, very groovy.

 jazz bars are great.

very cool jazz piece... the backing music is so well done that like stated before maybe redo the lead part to blend it just a bit more... it's still damn good though... gets high vote

Yeah, after I mixed it, I realised the lead in the mix was too low, so yes I can raise it.

I think TK was tinkering with the Ivories, I can play a bit.

If any body want to have a go the key is CM7/6

Cheers

Must agree with Marino, this is really good.
Love the drum track even more that I know it's programmed, very good work.

Picture the scene, Its Saturday morning, I have a shit load of administration to do, so I've stuck all your music in the top-player, and thats me! 
I love your music Denis your just so chilled, its so consciously present but in NO way obtrusive!

love the brassy stabs, really good stuff, good quality recording, production is good, like the reverb on the guitar and the levels are fine, nice tune, not your best, but still enjoyable to listen to waiting for more...

fantastic. A slip up or two here and there but a great groove. "my fingers cant keep still". Love the horns. It just needs someone snapping his fingers.
