rehearsing a little bit of mountain music on the electric gourd
Further exploring the #drone, I experimented putting the three outputs of the #WMD triad into three different oscillators, all using various timbres, whilst having the three notes being output varied slowly by a attenuated LFO.
As usual, I augmented the sound palette with #AmbientGuitar meanderings.

#music is very delicate. when performing/recording, the aim to make it sound well is the main hindrance in getting it to sound well.
powerful look at a failed America

Paul McCartney explains how he (and John Lennon) wrote some of the #Beatles #songs:
For example he dreamed the melody of Yesterday and Let it be was also inspired by a dream he had.
I'm really interested to know more about how people write songs because it inspires me. How do you write songs?
