Prison Jig

This song is not in a battle

Recently went through some tough times... wrote this as soon as I "got out".

Recorded late one evening during a blizzard. Took about 3 hours (minus the break I took to eat dinner and watch the Iron Giant).

Does this song not follow the Rules? Please Report Abuse

As always, taka, your stuff is ace. Yet as always, you make your songs so long even with all the groovy effects it may become a bit too repetitive to listen to on a regular basis! I once made a playlist with all your material and then exactly this problem becomes apparent. You have tons of talent and it shouldnt be too hard for you to get some places with your stuff.

Gather up a few decent musicians and start rehearsin (are you in a band btw? you should be!) I bet you can make a good buck out of it, possibly even achieve a decent amount of fame.

I will have to download this one though. haha.

Awesome job!!!the composition and arrangements are amazing!!!!!!!The violin sound is solid and crisp...many interesting concepts going in the layering....The Violin and marimba like sound add a great detail as they work in melodic conjunction...The two mayor changes are amazing from the fast paced to the great break!!!!I think I might take a shoot at doing some guitar arrangements counterpointing and harmonizing your violin!!!Would that be OK with you???I wont post it until you listen to and Ok it!

Dude, I love celtic music, and this drove me bloody crazy. But this is Taka making celtic music, so it`s hundred times better.
Man, that violin is completely ace. Also, and a Prog Rock fan, loved the whole sequence of changes, and the length doesn`t bother me at all.
What I would do is to give some reverb to the bass in the beginning, cause it sounds so dry. But that`s the only detail I could change, cause the rest of the composition is completely brilliant.
Man, when you make your first tour, just come to Chile. You totally rock!

This is very cool.

Something always different and cool on bandamp, eh?...wow!

I didn't like how the synthesizers fit in, but the dislike was pretty trivial compared to how much I freaking love this.

I like the piano and tempo switch.

A very cool listen
