from the new album - "Apollo 18"

Recommended Posts

a really nice, mellow, bittersweet song that features slide guitar.


Apollo 18: the Gemini, and then the Apollo missions that ran thru the 60’s to the 70’s, was an amazing time in my mind; Apollo 18 would have traveled to the Copernicus Crater, but it never happened, and the Apollo program was retired. A bittersweet melody runs thru this song, as the ending of the Apollo program was just as bittersweet.


from the new album "Elemental", available here:

Loving this music. So relaxing. I have upgraded my floor standing speakers and listing the sound in all of the corners. Giving me a feeling like early morning. Keep it up.

hi andrew!

thanks so much for commenting...

glad you dig it,

you're tapping into the vibe i was trying to put out there...

and big stereo speakers, just like the good ole days when folks had the nice stereos setup in every household..

THAT is the way to listen to this!

This is a nice way to start my day.  Your unpredictability is one of your greatest talents.

alright lynn!

this softer acoustic based stuff, is a great chill mode for me...

i didn't really think the slide parts thru,

i had the acoustics done, and didn't know what to do with them..

then the melody for the slide parts just popped in my head,

that was one session to do all the slide parts, so it WAS kinda unpredictable, even for me!!

 

thanks man

Is your acoustic recorded or a midi instrument? Sounds very authentic.

hey rocker! it SHOULD sound authentic! it is!! heheh...

i don't do anything midi, except the drum programming on the rock tunes.

this is all played in front of a mic.

the electrics, like i said before, are all capture direct from a Strymon Iridium pedal. bass too.

I hit play before I read a word written, I heard that slide and thought Bats is in a melancholy, thoughtful, retrospective mood with this.

How sweet and bitter at the same time I can only stand and applaud your skill, your chops, your innate ability to impart emotion into your guitar.

Sincerely thank you for sharing this @batsbrew.

batsbrew . . . in my mind, as I'm listening, I'm hearing a classic . . . it's just so well done ! I'm hearing 12 string, (sadly) I still have one in the closet, used to play it a lot, and really love that sound, but the fingers all went soft, what can I say.  Interesting ambient perc efx you've added here, very tastefully done.  Maybe I'll dust her off.

OOh this is really different bat.  I like it.  BTW until I read your missive, I was thinking you were referring to Nietzsche (little philosophy joke).    I love your instrumentals.  They are very engaging.

hello noynekker!

thanks man, that's real nice of you to say...

no 12 string, just a pair of acoustic 6 string tracks, playing some different voicings, to make it sorta sound like a 12 string.

 

soft fingers, i hear you...

i have 'tenderfoot' all the time now!! heheh,

don't get to play enough.

 

here's a pic of the guitar trio used on this tune:
