My first love is blues guitar, but lately my guitar learning experience has taken me in the realm of a genre of music called “deep house”, which is kind of like chill or ambient music. And here at my house in New Zealand there are some native birds called “tui” which have the most amazing variety of songs. I’ve been listening to them for a while now, and I found they often sing in Bm. So I started trying to imitate their songs on my guitar, and that led to this composition. The backing track was largely made using my new Novation LaunchKey Mini to create some synth sounds through Logic Pro. I’ve never played a keyboard before, but I found I can slowly play some 3 or 4 note chords with one hand, and that’s all it takes. As for the guitar, it’s my Martin Dreadnaught Junior > Blackstar tube amp > Scarlett 2i2 > Logic Pro. I tried some effects, like reverb, delay, and equalizer, but they all sounded worse than just the clean sound of the Martin. So there it is. I think this is my 3rd original composition.
