WATERFALL DREAMS – PART 1

Below is a shortened version of my soon-to-be-released track on Insight Timer. I love this description I came up with for my track: “Let yourself dream as soothing acoustic guitar chords cascade over you.”

Composing “Waterfall Dreams” was very enjoyable. For two months, I added sections and enjoyed the major and minor contrasts.

I recorded the guitar parts for my song during a period of one week. The final track of 34 minutes was created after I edited over six hours of recordings. Those recordings were hard work!

I considered that it might be fun to have water sounds splashing in the background. I hired my piano arranger to add some sounds, but after listening to his ideas, I decided the guitar sounded best without anything added.

There are three sections to this composition. The first is major, the second is minor and the third dissonant section contains chords that I composed when I was 19-years-old.

That instrumental from 1980 was named “Waterfalls” and the beginning chords inspired my later acoustic song named “Take Me Away.” More about that song is at this link: TAKE ME AWAY

I think it’s very cool that I can share a cassette recording of my instrumental “Waterfalls” that was recorded in1980. For my meditation version, I slowed it down considerably!

Below are performances of my song in progress.
