The Ride Out

By Anon_Buster on December 13, 2020 4:09 pm

Still discovering song structures and what I like. I went back to playing the acoustic, since I actually came up with songs when I played that in college. Here is a simple acoustic track (metronome clicks included since I didn't take a second draft of the original idea-recording this week--my work location changed along with my hours).

[Note: As we're hitting the end of the year, and I'm not sure if I'll be doing Weekly Beats again this coming year, just because I want to explore longer, more difficult options. I've appreciated the feedback and support each of you leave with your comments. It's really encouraging and has heled drive me forward when I really wanted to chuck my computer and keyboards out the window. If anyone is interesting in keeping in touch or sharing work after Weekly Beats, shoot me an email with the "email" button in my  WB profile.

Very nice sound on this guitar. I like the fact that you get both a clear crystalline sound but yet it keeps the organic element of real playing with the sound of the hands sliding on strings during a chord change, etc.

Regarding next year's weekly beats, actually it's only during even years. So next one is in 2022. I just discovered that last week by reading the forum. So this is actually 2 tracks left before a full year off.

I have enjoyed your music and the explorations you were taking! Let's keep in touch! I'll shoot you a mail this week.

This is really nice, man. Feels like it would work nicely with someone singing over the top of the guitar, too. I'll shoot you an email soon; would be cool to hear how your music making progresses when you experiment with different ideas and explore them more fully.

i'm no expert of guitar, but this track is great. The atmosphere is so nostalgic, and your game is very emotional.

Nice guitars, it sounds good. I am not sure if I'll be back in 2022 yet, but as Kedbreak136 mentioned, it is only every 2 years, so I have a year to think about it.

Good job this year! smile

This track is so beautiful. Great you have found the accoustic guitar to express yourself. I wish to hear more of your stuff in 2022.

Very nice!

Nice bit of work. I'm not noticing a metronome or anything though, so just a relaxing bit of acoustic it is.

WB is once every 2 years for pretty much the reason you described. People get burned out, want to do something else for a while and just want to give it all a rest. In the meantime, there're a bunch of us on the Discord (it's the right-most icon on the top-right of every WeeklyBeats page).

This def has a nice nostalgic feel to it.  Like I'm coasting on my bike down a leaf strewn road.  I feel ya on the WB_burnout.  This is my 4th one and every time towards the end I say to myself "self, i don't think I'll be doing this next time"  Then after that year of no WB right around December the new years resolution itch kicks in and I trick myself into another year.  That being said I actually am not sure if I'll be back either.  Mayhaps I'll finally get an album done lol.  Cheers to the new year and I've enjoyed listening to your tracks this year!
