I have two new tracks, songs I’ve wrote and produced with Ardour.
"Logo Mais" is a straight pop/rock tune, reminds me the eighties a little bit. I think of it as a “road song”. The drums are super simple, and made with General MIDI. I’ve also used amsynth in a part.
"On The Road Again" is an old blues version which I adapted the original lyrics in a new melody and harmony. Again, super simple percussion. Kind of low-fi arrangement.
I commented on “On the Road Again” at the LM’s forum, as I said there a great reworking and fresh arrangement of a very singular tune in it’s original form!
You’re a good writer with interesting chord voicings and progressions! Logo Mais has a strong hummable melody that gets in your brain! Good vocals too! The fact that it sounds ‘80’s’ make the drum machine-y beat not very noticeable in a good way and just a part of the sound like the jangly chorused guitar… Great stuff!
Wow @pdechery you are quite prolific! I enjoyed the tunes - good playing and vocals. What did you use for your General MIDI drums?
Yeah, I’ve read your comment on the forum, thanks a lot for the feedback!

Totally true, I can remember a bunch of hits from that time that used drum machine beats like this one
I’m a big fan of jingle-jangle guitar players, as well as blues players. Kinda mix them both together here.
I’m glad you like it!
I’m doing an album project and I have a list of songs to record. Sometimes I remember an old song I did and I want to record it too. It seems like this will never end
Until now I’m using the “Standard Drums” instrument in the General MIDI plugin. It’s not bad at all, even if compared to the kits in Hydrogen.
I got a suggestion on the LM forum to check this plugin. So next project I’ll be trying that one.
