Thread: Another Original Tune

  1. #1

    Default Another Original Tune

    A person on a recording website offered to master tracks for people. I sent him this track and he worked some magic on it. He has multiple Pultecs and other tube gear that really added some goodness to the track. Put on the good headphones or hook up the good speakers.

    I'm playing my Girouard mandola on the first time through, then the Heiden, then the Old Wave oval hole A model octave. The track ends with the mandola and Heiden playing harmonies.

    Added some time-lapse videos I've been shooting for some eye candy too. Hope you enjoy it.

    Great tune Don! Sounds PRO! Although, I think you do a pretty PRO job yourself.

    Really Great stuff Don!

    I have to ask what inspires you to write? I haven't written anything in a long time.

    Appreciate all your comments!

    Dave Hanson: Pultecs are tube EQs. You could buy a Gilchrist with what the guy has in tube gear for mastering. Really imparts some richness to the tones. Not sure any of that comes through once youtube mangles it.

    Tim: A lot of times I'm just noodling and a little melodies will pop out. I grab the recorder and capture them and then see if they lead anywhere. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. Really pleased with what the others added to the arrangement, and what the mastering did to tones.

    Thanks for kind permission to post the TAB Don.
    Hope this is about right, (corrections welcomed), love the harmonising improv on C and D parts, modal changes and slightly crooked call and response rhythm.
    Classic tune.

    Don’s inspiration might be implied by the tune’s title.

    Thanks to both Don for writing such a cool tune for the mandola and for Simon to post the ABC to get me started! And, as always, great visuals, Don!

    I've got the opening riff but I'm not familiar with this format of tab. Is there an explanation somewhere?

    ...and really cool tune Don.

    You paste it here set, mandolin tab, A4 paper, SUBMIT, and then download a pdf with notation and TAB.
