Dreams Of Own [JULY 21ST SKIRMISH]
Wednesday July 21st Skirmish hosted by @Amanda West. The theme was to write a Disco or 70's themed song.
So I turned to Robert Fripp's classification of Discotonics (a sister-genre to the infamous Frippertonics that was to include drums added to the guitar loops & can be heard on some of his solo albums), an idea he first explored in his solo work during the late '70's. I pulled up HG Fortune's wonderful Percumat 2 VSTi in my "Live" Jeskola Buzz setup & got it grooving with a beat I quite enjoyed (at two-thirds of it's initial speed - 75BPM vs. its suggested 120BPM). The next thing I did (inspired by a recent forum topic on tunings, &c…), I tuned my guitar to my so-called "Dropped B" tuning (EADGBB) which I haven't used for quite some time. It was great to get reacquainted with it. Then I found a sweet Flanged/Chorused tone for my Strat, pressed record & had fun. I have to say, I do like some of the riffs that came out of this - especially the one that ended the song. And those two loops were fun to build & play around with.
Thank you to @Amanda West for hosting these Wednesday Skirmishes - they seem to be the only ones that have worked out for me so far. This was lots of fun
