Chopsticks Ballad


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I wanted to make a rock song, and made some choppy riffs. But when I started jamming over it, a ballad came out instead. And once again, I am having a trouble coming up with a proper song title. Anyway, hope you guys will enjoy. Cheers.

Nice construction. Lots of interesting things happening throughout. Tasteful chord progressions. Things unplanned often materialize from an almost orthogonal idea.

chop-chop-chop...
Yeah, this one was definitely unplanned and it happened kind of fast. Not really well thought out as a whole, but I will have to take it for what it is. As always, thank you for the support, Les.

Fine Chops..
I am a fan of choppy riffs on any instrument esp guitar.. You have a fine mix going on here and there's a jazzyness to the electric piano(?) A proper song title... hmmm..now that would depend on whether you want to keep it an instrumental ( as it's fine as is) or not.. This was very good to my ears.. If I think of a title, will send it your way

Thank you
Thank you for the kind words, Joyce. The synth part was mostly happened very quickly, and I was feeling a bit Jazzy at the moment. The other title I was considering for this one was "Ballad of Choppy Joe", but I think I like "Chopsticks Ballad" more now, haha. Cheers.

Cool
Needs vocals. I hope someone sings on this. Is that a possibility?

vocals
As you can see, all of postings have been instrumentals. So it is unlikely I will add vocals to this myself. But if someone wants to do so and develop this, I am all ears. Thank you for the listen and the comment.

this has too much variety and life to be labeled a 'ballad.' cool intricacies.

The guitar is played on iPad garageband, and I did a little tweaking using JamUp Pro. Kudos to Apple and PositiveGrid! :) Thank you for the comment.
