This song is not in a battle


Some of you know me and my wife are celebrating our 25th Anniversary on Oct 11th  - My wife works in a School and can't take that time off, so we're celebrating early going on our first ever Cruise around the Mediterranean for 2 weeks on the 10th August. I can't wait.
So here is a little Cuizin number, I came up with the idea yesterday and recorded, produced in 9 hours.
CHEERS ALL!!

**EDIT**
Here's a remix - This one sounds a bit fatter and smoother IMO

We're 3 days into the cruise, it's amazing. The live music is superb, the service is outstanding.
Cheers M

Great picture - you guys looks like you're having a grand time! Also, this tune is amazing - hard to believe you did this in just 9 hours. Great drum track!

Cheers BC. The tune started with two chords, one of which was a variation of a minor ninth chord, one of my favourites for this style. I then created the bass line and could not find a melody to match, so I thought of trying identical melody bass and melody lines and filling out with fender strat picking rhythm and percussion. I spent quite a bit of time on the mix and panning. The drums I was lucky to find a pre-set from groove monkey, which you can import into Ezdrummer drum software, again tweaked the mix on them that I'm used to anyway. The solo's were just three chords, which was improvised on an Archtop, filling further with a Rhodes pre-set, again quite easy, three chords.

Not sure if I'll have enough money next year to build the studio. The cost of living can creep up on you.
I do have another ideas, but it's purely circumstantial at the moment - that is if I decide in a career change becoming a photographer and I can make more money, a studio will be required in which I can combine it to a photographic/music studio

Video of the cruise
Here is a quick edited video of the cruise with this track and two others, one of which I wrote on our wedding anniversary 2012 - despite it being quick to edit, it's about 20 min's long, so you may get bored.
One of my favorite photo's was capturing a Dolphin showing off as we were leaving Gibraltar taken from our staterooms balcony. I think they were celebrating that the UK who owned Gibraltar gave it back to Spain,  I believe on the day I took the shot
