Liner Notes: 


host corinne54
prompt Dream

Been playing with this guitar part for a couple of days but didn't have the B section or a melody. Plenty to fix and add but I'm way late already. Partly because tuning a 12 string takes a long time.

Guitars: '69 Martin D12-20
Note: Skirmish: 1 hour to write and record

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I love love love that industrial drone!!! It's even got a steady rhythm like the old Gaelic songs do, so tanners and workers can keep time properly... Gives it an edge that I really dig!!

Love that trippy, slightly off-kilter 7/8 time! This is a really ear-catching sonic tapestry of textures. Nice one!

Love that heavy bass. It feels like it’s just behind the beat and trying to catch up. Some nice guitar squeezed in there too amongst the synths. Very cool.

hypnotic rhythm and nicely done!!! the whole thing hangs together nicely! I always wanted to write in unusual time signatures, but my brain keeps 4/4'ing everything, it seems!

Nice one. The bass anchors everything - otherwise we'd float away into the dream with you!

Wow! This is really gorgeous! I love how the music ebbs and flows so smoothly. It is very relaxing.

This is mesmerizing. The 12 string really makes the song and adds that sense of dreaminess. Not to mention the interesting chord changes throughout the piece. This is really cool.

Lush, exotic - impressive, even more so because you're skirmishing. I love the sounds you use to create melody.
