I was messing around with my electric guitar last week and came up with a new composition. In my head, I heard an Ennio Morricone-style score, with a choir to uplift the drama of the guitar sound. I can’t sing very high–I’ve always been an alto–but there is a “human voice/violin” option on my keyboard that fits the choral sound I was looking for.
I’ve had my Casiotone CT-360 keyboard for about 30 years. It still works, and it’s so much fun to play with. I’m learning/practicing piano chords on it, and I have yet to explore all its studio elements.
I call this composition “Hero Comes to Town.”
This recording has a raw sound overall because I only have a basic mic and my Fender amp of 24 years produces a lot of static. I doubt I can get the amp fixed in Fiji because they run on a higher electrical voltage than the U.S. here, and I don’t know a good guitar tech, but that doesn’t stop me from playing. As in life, you’ve got to be able to focus on the signal instead of the noise.
