Position:
87 in Jazz, 3129 overall

This was recorded originally during the late spring of 1994, just before I met my wife to be. This song was my first recording with me on bass guitar, and mixing jazz with new age. Also involved a music theory idea I had back in 1989 that I had yet to try in a finished recording, I call it relative progression, there probably is another name for it. The idea is that you use harmonic relativity to build progressions. For example: in this song Dmin7, to Fmaj7 to Amin7, then G7 to Bdmin7 to Cmaj7, and then starting over.

Tech Notes: Again another midi recovery from the past to the present using the same methods as "As You Like It" with one exception. In '94 when I recorded the original, I did all of the midi on Cakewalk, then dumped it to the first two tracks on my TASCAM PORTA ONE 4 track cassette recorder. Which I took apart and cranked the motor speed as high as it would go, yeah. The third track was me playing Bass. Well I didn't have the porta one anymore but I had a bass, so I replayed the bass line and recorded it directly into Cakewalk Pro-Audio 9.
