Thoughtful Music For Reflection™
Sounds good. Again on this one I would back down on the held strings and other sounds and let the acoustic guitar come through more. You can bring the strings in more towards the end (last 30 seconds). I don’t think you need a drum track, but occasional ride and tambourine touches might work. My speakers might not be catching it, but a bass track with some movement might also work, especially during the short vocal breaks…. like when that flute-ish riff is happening.
Thanks so much for your input James, and all the other listeners I got feedback from. I’ve lowered the volumes of all the background instrument sounds. And I’ve also lowered the held strings a bit more until the last verse. I’ve also adjusted the bass line, and I’ve tweaked the sync timing of the counter melody in the last verse. Note that the guitar is more up front now, and a bit of it’s natural percussive component is coming through more. All these adjustments are included in the new “I Must Go (v5)” track that I’ve added above. Please let me know what you think of this new version. Regards – Justin
As usual, your production is stellar. Since you ask, MY preference would be to hear ” relying instead for rhythm on the guitar line” punctuated above the ‘organish’ sound. That would indeed, for ME, “keep the arrangement of this song simple, … and meditative”. Thanks for sharing!!
Thanks for your comment, Richard.
