Mouse Trap

Uploaded .

I have issues at my house, sometimes they manifest themselves in my tracks. In this case, the bassoon and oboe represent the mouse. The guitar is the peanut-butter.

That bassoon and oboe is so catchy I'll bet the mouse got caught . Yeah the guitar is smooth not chunky style the way I prefer it. Really loose and yet cohesive at the same time. A big thumbs up !

This is real nice. Great progression. Amazing structure as well. Is there a melodica in this?

I love this tune. I'd like to take a crack at it without the oboe too.

I've got a fever and the only cure is "more mousetrap"!

this is one inventive piece! what a mix - are you sure you didn't grow up south of I-10 in Louisiana? You have that Cajun blues thing down and who'd expect you could get oboe and bassoon to work so well with it! wow.

Real professional musicianship. This is fantastic. Get yourself a cat. I have a great mouser. All I have to clean up is the little mouse tail.

I knew it!! There had to be a snap at the end, no question about it. A very accurate depiction of one of the little b*stards sneaking around my kitchen, eventually meeting up with its impending doom. Only peanut butter never worked for me - I always ended up with a bare, unsnapped trap. Always had to go with american or cheddar packed tightly around the trigger :) I've actually watched it a couple times. If I only had some for this wonderful soundtrack!

I love the dancing bass lines - reminds me of scene from Close Encounters where the military/government is 'talking' to the alien craft.

what a great story telling! the oboe is just a delight for the ears..

Excellent. That mouse had it coming. Let me know when you are inclined to do a track about your bear problem: you'll need some heavier percussion for that one!

Nice combination of instruments! Great stuff!

Oh I love this! Sounds like a psychopathic toad hobbling home from some evil doings! Great musicianship - fab execution! The toad thing says more about my brain, so just ignore it.

Cool tune love the trap snap end.

I was about to write, "tell the mouse thank you for me, for the wonderful oboe and bassoon, and give it some more peanut butter", but then ... well, you know. Maybe a nice lily, instead? And but: if a mouse is an oboe *and* a bassoon (choices I quite admire, by the way), what possible combination of instruments would adequately represent the raccoons that keep breaking into my kitchen and stealing all my corn chips and avocadoes? I'm thinking some kind of Gamelan percussion ensemble might almost do the trick ... ... anyway. Wonderful track!

Great combination of instruments. Has a Peter and the Wolf or Nutcracker visual. Excellent!
