Song For Essie

By Tweaklab on November 8, 2020 11:50 pm

Thought I'd have a go making a piece inspired by one of my favourite albums of all time, and one of the albums that got me into beat making! This is also my first track to include slide guitar.

Oh wow, between the gnarly bass at the intro and the cool breakbeat, before going into wahed out slide guitar, this is an awesome track. And it also sounds very nice.

What is your favourite album you're referencing here?

Love how much different ideas there are in this track, and how they all blend together into a neat 3 minute package. Really cool.

WOW!  You can be such a musical chameleon at times.  If you told me this was a FBS b-side, I would believe it.  As someone that also listened to that album 400 times (I sold it a few years ago though) I can hear you referencing different elements from the wah guitar, slide, bells, and up-up, down-down-down, down-down-down, down-down-down-down I know EXACTLY what you are doing.

You wrote a message in code that can only be read by people who listened to that album

Genius!

Yo, that's funky. I really love that organ, then the bells came in and it felt like it could easily take a couple more layers, choir on the left, brass on the right, stuff like that.
