Love your voice.
Nice piece of work!
Excellent piece of work, there's so much going on and yet it all fits perfectly
Excellent love those drums........
Totally pulling off the style! (And the mix is fabulous.)
Nice! Love the arrangement!
Agree with Greg - great sounds. Also enjoying the folky flavours.
I'm curious what you are using for your wind instruments. It sounds similar to an Akai Professional EWI4000S. I have been admiring them from afar for a while now.
Wonderful easy listening that develops all through the piece.
Pure, real nice.
Lovely melody brings a beautiful sentiment.
That sounds very nice, beautiful melody!
excellent layers! Joyous!
I really like how this one builds. Awesome song.
Tender tribute, thanks for sharing. Love the flutey additions - beautiful!
Wow, 31 years - congratulations!
Great approach to lyric writing. I'll have fun analysing that later. Love the music and melody also. Ooh, lovely break!
Always so affected by your lush instrumentation - this is lovely.
Nice writing! Love that Instrumental break!
Love the laid back approach. Great lyrics!
Moving lyrics! Great guitar sound.
Love it! Great things can come out of bad experiences.
Thoroughly enjoying this. Nice chord progression and melody. Love the words.
Different sound, Love the ebow work and the chord changes. Great work!
Love the acoustic sound. Very nicely done. Nice segue into the Christmas classic!
Love the lyrics. Describes the modern word perfectly.
ATTENTION-Updated track. Guitar added (courtesy of Marc Halikas) and new lyrics in third verse.
Something about this makes me "sway". These earth rhythms are neat stuff!
Not at all, Norm. In fact, thanks so much for being technical. Baiao is a preset pattern in EZD from a collection called "Cocktail". I just stumbled upon it in the planning stages of this tune and it seemed perfect. I YouTubed some Baiao vids. The rhythms are infectious. Thanks again!
Great work, Alex!
Love the atmosphere and vocal work.
Kinda reminds me of Mose Alison, I don't know why. I like the lyrics and the slide guitar work!
Love this track! Great brass sound!
Pretty finger style guitar work!!
I like your Pop style very much!
Sounds like both the Beach Boys and the Beatles grooving on the same track. Neat!
Thanks so much for all your kind words on this.
Richard-This was actually the first MIDI tune I did back in 2009. It was really kind of a test. I downloaded Cellofan and plugged it into my sequencer (Samplitude 2008) and was amazed at how it sounded. After a bit of jamming, my fingers just seemed to go to the right place for that melody and I built the rest of the tune around it.
Robert-It's funny you should mention that you actually like when the percussion comes in. Most people say "Hey, You really had me almost asleep there, then the drums woke me up"! Not consistent! What's wrong with that! Contrast is great! Franz Schubert used contrast in the second movement of his 8th (Unfinished) symphony. It starts out so sweet and serene, but changes to a dark and intense feel real quick. Glad at least somebody agrees with me.
Thanks to all here who've listened, commented and even favorited all of my music! I enjoy Alonetone very much!
This is a pretty piece. The title matches it perfectly.
