I get so laid back at times I just fall over. Being a lunatic I have a soft spot for the Moon.

I like this cool instrumental, your title fits. Nice mix too. Good work!

I share your sensitivity to the moon. Your song is beautiful it says much without a word uttered.

Thanks Danny I am not sure man should ever have stepped on it LOL. Fantastic achievement but I have long held the view that some places are much better without a human presence and the moon is one of those places. I know the moon is still the same
but every time I look at it I can't help but think there is now a footprint on it. That in itself is not a bad thing but would I be crazy to say it has somehow lost its innocence?

that reminds me of a song by Tracy Lundgren called “When We Danced Without Shoes In the Playground”.
I too remember going barefoot and enjoying the innocence of childhood. :rolleyes:
I hear where you’re coming from Gerry, but I have a different perspective.
I think that Mr. Armstrong’s remarks were meant as an inclusive demonstration that when we “all of mankind” put our minds and more importantly hearts and souls on a problem,
WE ( all together) can solve it together.
That’s why I choose to replace his word mankind with “human spirituality”.
And especially now, in this ubiquitous day and age of the Internet, we have the ability to connect and to yes, change the world to a place where our children can once again be free and childlike.
I don’t have to ask :huh: , I already know that I’m crazy. :P
So what’s wrong with that? <_< ;)
Peace. :)

Hey Gerry,

I think this is a really awesome song. I've recently begone doing some yoga, and this would most definitely make it to any yoga playlist out there. It's very relaxing, and the bell chimes come in at just the right times. I dig it, man! Not sure what your plans are for this, but you should submit it to Buddha Bar!

Why thanks my friend, I honestly have no plans at all for my music and I am the worlds worst pitcher. Too many highs and lows in the past so these days its just for the fun.

Sounds great. The guitar sound is awesome. Makes me feel like dreaming and smoking weeds. If ever I did that of course, but it is not the case. :)

Nice demo
Very moody,
What is the keyboard on the backing track?
Have you got lyrics? or would you like me to write some?

Thanks, keyboard I use is a Yamaha KX 61 but it has no on board sounds I mainly used Symphobia for the backing tracks. I honestly think this one is an instrumental so I'll skip the offer of lyrics although I reall appreciate it.

All the best,

This is pretty awesome Gerry. Really well done instrumental. I have been experimenting with a few instrumentals myself lately, hence the reason I was on this section of the forum. I thought I was doing ok until I heard this, now I know I need to go back to the drawing board. Kudos to you.

Thanks Allan really kind of you and I am glad you enjoyed it. You should hear some of my stuff LOL I have a bin full of ones that never quite worked out but it's all part of the learning and the fun. Posted Image

Great work.

It's funny, Gerry, as soon as I saw the title I thought, "Didn't Gerry do that moon one ages ago?". I somehow do associate you with "moon-related" numbers for some reason.

You and Tracy often seem to me to have a lot in common, musically. You're both masters of texture, and texture is a key factor in my personal appreciation of music. I've always loved your guitar sounds, and somewhat envied your mastery of the tremolo bar.

This is a wonderfully reflective and contemplative little number. There is absolutely nothing I would suggest changing. Even the tympani was perfect. Well, almost nothing. I just felt it a shame that it seemed to end a little abruptly. ;)

Hope all is well with you!

Thanks Simon me and the moon dream a lot LOL. I know you have mega ears for music so a thumbs up from you is a real compliment and I thank you for it.

All fine in this part of the world and I hope likewise for you and yours. Take care and thanks again.

Gerry,

Really nice work. Smooth as can be. It was reminding me of something else on here, and when I checked my posts, I saw
that I had commented on another "moon" piece of yours awhile ago.

To my ear it would be a good fit with nature shows, maybe travel video and the like.

Keep 'em coming.

Eric
