"Glad to hear it!
And you are right about side-chaining. Very much an EDM thing and other punchy pop things with lots of sub woofer stuff that everything else needs to dance around to be heard."

"I love the short-wave chatter. Great piece!"

Damon R. Mathews replied to 8Rivers's discussion Without You - An instrumental epic piece
"With respect, I wouldn't break out things like side-chaining. This just needs basic EQ. Up a few db at 2500 - 3500. May still need a touch more 5000 and/or some 8000 (for "air").
Scoop out some 200-300 - thats where the mud lives. And/or simply roll…"

"Thanks for your time, Dane.
Good call, by the way. I thought the sudden ending was dramatic - and have doubted it ever since. I think I will do something else.
I keep thinking that the short-wave radio noise and chatter might need defending. But…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Damon R. Mathews's discussion Two Chord Wonder
"Nice composition. Not much to comment on because it works - no trouble with any loud bits. At first I thought the quieter pianistic passages were too light in contrast but on second hearing they seem to fit well. In spite of just two chords the…"

Sam Umar replied to Damon R. Mathews's discussion Two Chord Wonder
"Really liked the vibe here, except maybe the radio chattering on the background. I probably missed the chord progression as you mentioned, perhaps because I enjoyed it too much. It kinda reminded me of an 80's movie or something."

Damon R. Mathews replied to Dane Aubrun's discussion A short piece for those who need insomnia treatment.
"I loved this and played it twice immediately. For a piece that should "lull you to sleep", it seems equal parts restless. And that makes me think of Arnold Bax who so often seems to quietly "bust up" a peaceful mood as if to say "this is the peace I…"

Thanks so much for listening and helping!"

"The Hammond can be an amazing and powerful instrument..... And it can be dorky, too..... And all stops in between.
Thanks for listening and liking!"

H. S. Teoh replied to Damon R. Mathews's discussion Two Chord Wonder
"I admit this isn't an idiom I'm familiar with at all, but I liked it nonetheless.
I don't know how to answer whether the loud part is too loud: I usually adjust my speaker volume to the music I'm listening to, so I can't tell the loudness in an…"

Ingo Lee replied to Damon R. Mathews's discussion Two Chord Wonder
"Only two chords but lot's of inspiration here, you call this jazz well then I'm a jazz fan! The loud part works fine for me; not sure if exciting is what I got there, I'm not a big organ fan no matter what Jimmy Smith says.  Now Raymond Chandler,…"

Hi Everyone! Happy (please, please, please) 2022!I explore two areas quite a lot: tunes with ridiculouly long chord progression - like 36 bars - the goal being to do it "secretly". To not attract attention to that,Or: super short chord progressions…

"Let me know if I have taken too great a liberty here......but I added some EQ and a bit of compression to the tune. This brought up artifacts in your mix - and running through my equipment made that worse - but still, it brought out good things,…"
