Last month Folderol posted this 'Wandering' and insinuated that a bit of collab would be welcome.  Roll Eyes

I eventually got round to having a listen to this.

Here I kick off with just a single finger-pick guitar line to try and establish the 6/8 timing which is there in the original composition.  The way that this piece has been built up, initially, tends to disguise the rhythm so I played this part in an attempt to regain some 'fluidity'.  Lips Sealed

To follow on I intend (at the moment  Undecided ) to add a melody on the whistle and, possibly, augment this with some bouzouki ..... can you tell I've been away from the folky stuff for too long.  Roll Eyes

A perfect accompaniment to the existing music - I am blown away by your acoustic instrument production skills, Mr. Fraser!

 Cool
Thanks for the kind comments.

For the next instalment I have added a whistle melody line.  I have also doubled up and panned the original synth part, with the guitar and whistle going midway between them.

I have a strong feel towards developing this a bit further.   Cool
My instinct is to leave this instrumentation as it is, then add a bridge section with a minimal selection of the chord structure but with a different instrument choice, then return to the original theme to finish.  Lips Sealed

We shall see what develops over the next few days .......  I got to say that I am truly enjoying getting back in to something.
Thanks, Will.   Kiss

The guitar part adds a solid foundation to a song that was wandering a bit, very good idea.
The melody adds a story to the song....

I do think that the melody comes in to fast, give the song a bit time to build up  Wink

I think you are probably right, although I did feel that the chord structure does not allow the melody to have a 'late start' (IMO).  The next step may be that I will stick an introduction on to compensate.  Undecided

I quite agree with this idea. I would think a guitar intro would be best. That way the synth remains in a supporting role which I think it fits well.

Would it help if I sent you a 'throw-away' copy with a leading click track of a few bars built in so you can synchronse more easily?

Like the whistle Smiley

 Shocked
This darn tune has been haunting me all night and day  Lips Sealed Tongue

This latest incarnation has an intro, followed by the main set of themes running into a guitar/bouzouki bridge, then back to the initial theme to finish.
I'm quite happy with the development of this ..... Roll Eyes but .... Roll Eyes
I feel that I would like to make it into a 'song' now.  Cry
Trouble is I don't think I can sing it  Cool
Time will tell  Undecided

Thanks Will .... you are making my life a misery, mate  Roll Eyes   Cool

Witnessing this metamorphosis has become like a musician's spectator sport - thrills, spills, and no clue as to where it's going next.
Go Will!  Cool Cheesy

It's James that is doing all the hard work.

I gave him a bit of coarse hemp string and he's weaving silk strands into it.

 Cool
OK .... I've given up on the 'song' idea.
I am just about to do some audio cleaning and a bit of mastering to wrap this project up, from my end.
Will .... shall I send you my files for you to compile as YOU would like it?
