Nice one Ben, good to see you break from tradition, though I'm sure I heard you play ever so slightly ahead of the beat a couple of times wink.gif

You're welcome. smile.gif In a word I think it is the dynamics of the track that makes it so captivating. Right from the opening set up of the theme, the use of dynamics keeps me glued to listening. And from there on throughout the track there are the slow buildings of tension and release. All of these things combined with technique, note choice and making every note count, or important, are very well done and do exactly what they are supposed to do, which is to keep the listener interested and curious as to what will happen next. Of course the theme and mood of the track play a big part in all of this but it is the dynamics used to illustrate the theme and mood is what brings the listener to the place that you have created in your mind. So congrats, to you and your mates on a job well done. cool.gif

PS: This track would be awesome as part of a movie score or as a movie theme I think.


Righto, thanks smile.gif Tbh I'm quite surprised people have ranked it so highly but that's the beauty of creating... we're not the best at judging our own stuff rolleyes.gif

I heard that Stephen Kings 'dark Tower' was being made into a movie...... C'mon, the gunslinger following the man in black across a desert all foreboding and doom laden? It would be a crime not to use this track in the score.


Man, I would love my tunes to be used in other media, especially a movie or game smile.gif

As Rich also said, I think this is your best track so far, at least from the tracks I've heard. Very, very nice! smile.gif

In all seriousness, regards timing... when you're playing lead lines or a run that is not intended to be exactly following certain beats and accents then you can intentionally move around the beat, especially if you're playing a series of notes that only occur that way once, rather than a repeating feature of the track.

If you listen to a Satch track for example, all the main verse / chorus type bits will have clearly defined melodies with clearly defined timings. When he adds a run or when he gets to the solo he'll let loose and maybe cascade over the beat in much the same way Marty Friedman does.
