Oh boy. Where do I start for this one? Well the earliest version of this track I have found is from 2014, but I’m almost positive I started this song in 2013. I originally did it with FL-Studio’s Hardcore faux guitar pedal software. Then I gave up. I tried again. Gave up since I loved the idea of the song but I wanted to wait till I could play a bit better to actually give the song my all. I am going to upload all of the old versions (that I can find) along with the final version on my bandcamp for free since sometimes it is cool to hear the evolution of a song. From concept to final product. Am I happy with how it came out? Sort of. Part of me wants to delay the song another year, but at the same time I know if I do then it will never be done.

HOW:

This song started off in standard guitar tuning if I recall correctly. But as of this final version it was done in an open D, meaning instead of EADGBe it was in DADF#AD. I played the main slide part on my lap with a metal slide bar in my left hand and my right hand finger picking. I played it again and again, each time with a different progression and underlining melody just winging it. After many many many many many attempts I ended up with this version. I totally shot future me’s self in the foot since I didn’t write down the notes or anything… Besides that, I went through again with FPC drums and made them all unique as possible within my limits without going crazy with it. I did a whole bunch of playing some lead licks and then reversing some of it as well. I then put the guitar back in standard tuning and tried some lead in sections and accidentally creating a whole other groove that starts early but you don’t really hear till 0:59 seconds till 1:43. People who listen to music too closely will hear some guitar around 1:20 which was a little lick I made, then lowered in pitch and volume. Also at 1:11 you can hear some 1st position licks and chords played then pitched up an octave. At the end of the song you hear some weird circuit-like noises, that is actually my open D string then me really messing with the delay pedal live. Why? Because I liked it. Oh and I don’t know how to play harmonica but I tried anyways in the 1st half of the song. I got sort of cocky and added some slight gross beat to the last instances of the harmonica to give it a bounce. Besides that it was just a lot of boredom and lil noises I made for fun.
If you want to use my song just PM me and let me know what it is for. 99% of the time I will let you use it no problem.

I don't give enough credit on how you're able to keep a song sounding so 'analog'. You give all of your instruments a space and it really makes each sound stand out especially on higher end speakers. You shot yourself in the foot by not taking notes? You can pick out notes from a spectrum or play by ear. Still, I really want to see a short film or something with one of your songs. I still can't get around to doing something like that myself.

I also reeaaally like the illustration. Honestly the 2D illustration style seems very fitting for your character.
