Every Day I Get On The Train - Unfinished Dub #46

By NWSPR on November 18, 2018 11:58 pm

I started out laying down beats for an 80s style hardcore thrash track at 160 bpm double time and then slowed down to 108 bpm before adding instruments. Then thought it would be a better beat driven dub sound. I ran up to the last minute and posted my Frankenstein's monster of a track. 2 basses, 2 guitars, 1 harmonica, drums and synths from Logic and a dash of text to speech that never got worked out. A fun week 46 but not what I expected. I'm running on the fumes of fumes at this point but only 6 more weeks to go!

Good luck everyone, hope you're doing well and the tracks are still coming.

Pretty high-octane fumes. Lotsa fun!

Great sound and upbeat vibe.  Digging that harmonica.  Sounds awesome.

And yet you keep on trucking, cruising on that plane. Great work.

One thing I love about your work, and I hope to embody this characteristic as well, is that you seem to just go "all in" on your tracks.  No matter what the style or vibe is, you just dive into the emotion or story or sentiment of the song.  It feels like you let the song guide you, as opposed to the other way around.  Very awesome.

That jangly steel guitar that was panned was perfect!  Is that a virtual harmonica?  It sounds so good!

Sassy. Serious attitude. Love that guitar and harmonica.

This is so eloquently put! My feelings exactly.

Your tracks are chockful of character and freshness and never fail to liven up the mood! This week is no exception smile

great train journey, like meeting Bob Diddley in a high tech bullet train smile  Excellent combination of backwoods and futuristic trips. Love it, it has humour and techno drive, a total package!

Thanks! Kept it up beat and light. I am feeling pretty drained musically at the moment.

Thanks, I know about 4 notes on the harmonica and trot them out every now and again.

Super big thanks for one of the best compliments all year! I do try to throw everything at it when I can and get lost in my own world. Not every week though.  I am constantly amazed at the conviction, skill and truth you bring to your tracks, so right back at you.  In regards to that harmonica, it is the real deal $5.99 marine band harmonica in the key of C. I bought it at a toy store 8 years ago and it sits next to my studio monitor for emergencies and in a panic, can add something to a track. As I have said in prior comments, I can only string together 3 or 4 notes on it.  My big brother was a serious bad ass blues harmonica player, but not me. Did not transfer to me smile

Thanks! Nice how a couple of live instruments can color a track and spice it up.

Thanks! I really appreciate it as I am really running out of juice as we approach the finish line but I'll make it. I may have peaked thought smile Gab, I always look forward to hearing what you'll come up with each week, you never let us down!

Thanks! and Thank you for referencing Bo Diddley as that's dead on. I once read a quote from a music critic that said if Bo Diddley got a nickle for every time a musician used the Bo Diddley beat or one of his riffs, he'd be the richest man on earth. I was fortunate enough to see Mr. Diddley perform years ago... square guitar and all. A true innovator!

Super catchy beat with that riff.  The bass sounds great especially along with the marimba/vibey thing.  Nice work!
