Apparition

I've been having some fun busting out the old cello a bit this year.  Thought I'd try to highlight it on another track or two before the year is over including this one.  I added some guitar, vocals, household item percussion, and just a touch of musical saw as well.

  Thanks!  I'm a fan of household item percussion, too.  Both aesthetically and due to necessity!

  Thanks!  I think I'll try to get at least one more cello-centric track in before the end of the year.

The song is real enough, and pretty good too.

Nice! I hear some saw, and maybe some pop corn tin along with the cello.  I think this may be some of the best cello on your tracks that I have heard, in my opinion.  Dreamy mix. The low vocal harmony is especially soothing and came out well.  Always an adventure!

  Thanks.  It does, in fact, appear to be real.

  I believe I did use the popcorn tin along with a couple other things I had laying around that I could just bang on.  Glad to hear the cello is working good on this one.

I also like the way how those cellos take over in the end. A nice piece of camp-fire melancholy for the early hours. Great!

  Hey thanks.  This probably would be fun around a campfire now that you mention it.

Great track, and lovely work on the cello, I'm hoping for more cello before the year is over!

Makes me feel fuzzy and warm, perfect soundtrack for autumn smile

  Thanks!  I've definitely been having fun with it this year.  I'm pretty sure I'll bust it out at least once more before the year's over.

  Thanks!  It does seem to have a bit of an autumnal feel to it I think.

Another catchy track to add to your campfire collection.  Really cool vocal harmonies along with the main vox towards the end with that cello supporting the low end.  Well done!

  I actually am thinking about collecting up some of these cello-driven tracks into some sort of album or something after this year's over.  Thanks!
