With the Rider Came the Storm



So, as planned, finished up two in-progress songs this weekend, here's the first. I always loved the soundtracks created by Ennio Morricone for 70s Westerns, so I headed off to recreate something similar (all without going back to listen, so just from the impressions in my memory).

Got a chance to put the new Aerodyne Jazz bass through it's paces, and used both the Strat and the Tele for the guitars (and the Ovation for the acoustic of course).

After some consideration, I did decide to add brass and some "nonsense sound" vocals, as those were part of my impressions I had floating about and it wouldn't have seemed right to try without them!

To turn mp3 into mp4, added a couple of screen shots from Red Dead Redemption 2, another part of the inspiration for diving into this too; one screenshot run through the excellent FotoSketcher for extra atmosphere.
