52 Weeks of Music – Week 2: Bring Me Home

Well, here we are again, and after a few hours slaving over a hot DAW, I’m back with another all-new, all-original piece of music for your delectation.

This time, I’ve farted out a blatant Devin Townsend rip-off, all downtuning and delays and Lydian scales. The song is called Bring Me Home.

Download the song here – Bring Me Home

Some technical notes: this song uses my Yamaha RGX-420 Drop 6 baritone guitar, which is tuned down a fourth to B-E-A-D-F#-B as standard.  Unfortunately, this required me to use my 5-string bass, which, to be frank, sounds a bit crap compared to my Ibanez 4-stringer.  Anyone want to buy me a new 5-string bass?

Also, after polling for opinions on Twitter, I’m going to record a podcast where I talk about the songs and the recordings in a bit more detail.  More on that when it’s done, hopefully later tonight.  If not later tonight, then probably Saturday.

Anyway, enjoy the tunes, and be sure and tell yer pals!

The Scottish Guitar Quartet

I listened to the Tartan Podcast for the first time a couple of days ago, a podcast that highlights independent scottish bands and artists (I’ve submitted my own stuff to it, so here’s hoping! :P) and the latest episode turned me on to the group emblazoned on this blog entry’s subject header, The Scottish Guitar Quartet. Download the latest TPC to get a listen to their lovely laid back jazziness.
