Shy Boy under the silver sky

THANKS TO THE GREAT ALMIGHTY PHIL HARMONIC FOR THIS LATE UPLOAD !!!

I guess some of you could relate to me in this: I wanted to rescue and old project and some plugins and presets didn't worked as expected. Maybe it was the jump from 32 to 64 bit edition, maybe  this project used some old VST I don't forgot long ago... Whatever the reason, I thought: "I've got more than two hours 'till the deadline, so what could be wrong if I reinstall both versions in parallel?"...

Well, technically nothing went exactly wrong, but the system entered some massive selfupgrade, with both versions autoupdating and scanning the library... and it's been like hour and a half and I still can't restart Live. I'm not sure if I could make it...

Anyway... here you have a really simple ambient guitar piece. I'm not a guitarrist and these basic figures took me ages, though I'd still close my eyes and pretend I'm rocking along The Jesus and Mary Chain smile

It's maybe a little bit rough, but I think it could suit some winter days ahead...

Will be back the minute I fix this mess. Until then, have a great week...

P.S.: Could you believe it's been 49 songs already? 49 ?!?!

Your playing sounds really good to me; excellent ambience.

Next week's the big FIVE OHH!! Loving this ambience. Many thanks for this work. Gonna help me fall asleep on time. Glad you were able to get this done in time even after two installations!

Glad you dug the vibe, Christian smile Yes, maybe my sound is way more electronic that this, but I've always had the impossible dream of having a late 80s-early 90s alternative band... ffor which I would be probably talentless.

I soon turned as a musician to sample based music, but my secret dream was always being Peter Buck from R.E.M. or fronting The Replacements smile

Thanks for listening!

Well, I owe Phil Harmonic and his infinite patience for providing me an upload link less than an hour past the deadline. It was hell, really, watching the time go by and my software just "updating, please wait..."

I'm really flattered you found this relaxing enough. My favourite ambient pieces are bedtime pieces smile

Thanks Jim. You're way too generous. I'm one of the wackest "guitarrists" on WB, if you can call what I do "playing" (place my fingers, record 9 takes for 2 bars or something, slice them on Ableton instead of learning to play them right... I'm a sample chopper at heart, sorry).

Thanks for listening and your constant feedback

Thanks Q-Rosh! I was aiming to that alternative scene I never lived (maybe just the people on MTV) smile

Great atmospheric guitar work, the sound brings back memories for me.

Great atmos

Ugh I feel your pain with the old version/upgrade problem.  I experienced that a few years ago when I decided to install the latest mac OS and then found out oh right my mbox2 is no longer supported.  Oh well got a new Scarlett 2i2 instead smile 
That being said this is an excellent ambient guitar piece.  The sound reminds me a bit of New Order's guitar sound but of course nice and mellow smile
