Description
Somewhere between jazz and funk - junk I guess. Just a little dittie built around a really old bassline. I have no idea how jazz works and I stink at funk so neither label is warranted.

Still, it's groovy and has stuck in my head for so long, I deemed it worthy of laying down. May be a full tune one day when i learn what the hell I'm doing.

All midi. No loops, no instruments.

That's cool how you made MIDI music actually sound good. Most MIDI I hear is really crappy but I like what you did. Good job!

are the key there. If I could play that quick key riff on my guitar?
hmmmm? Ahhh i only wish! You have a knack for gettingthe bass down
so kewl I noticed...and it's all midi! Right mix! Sounds a little grungy.
Just like it should. Are those still 8 bit sampled drums? Makes me think
about digging out my old roland TR-707. I'm rambling....dude I like it!

Thanks for the ramble.

I built the song in entire in Easybeat - a barebones midi authoring tool for the Mac. No drum machines, no external hardware. Just a midi track that I modelled in GB. Same for all the tracks. That's my favourite one-two combination - Easybeat to Garageband. I compose in EB using tablature notation then I export the tracks as .aif which I then import into GB as software instruments. Now I'm rambling.

Glad you liked it.

Heavy and funky with hinties of nujazz - great fun. Now I'll need to listen
to something a little mellow to clear my head of that groove before I go to
bed

Kickin' bass
Very cool jazz/funk sound (would it be "junk" or "fazz"?) I think it's well
worth studing on and seeing what you might come up with.

BTW, my college jazz band instructor used to tell us basically that the
best jazz players, eventually, were those who had no idea how to play
jazz. Which was really encouraging because I was a French horn player
trying to play jazz bass.

Forced ukulele lessons in grade school threatened to forever destroy any chance of me growing to love and make music. Mercifully, the hatred of stringed instruments dissolved during adolescence, along with my innocence and respect for authority. Ente... [see more]
