this was a really old song of mine, i have early renders of this dating back to 2014.

i've completely rerecorded it a few months ago, but after listening to it again, felt like i could do better, especially with the drum mix.
they still aren't quite right, but its much better than it was before.

nevertheless, I really love this song - really peaceful, like a nice early morning flight over miles of forest...

I especially love how I mixed the "orchestra" at the end. Give it a listen at 3:55 if you think the beginning drags on for too long.
I layered several different stringed instruments from my YPG-235 in different octaves to make it sound like a full orchestra.

if you were curious about what instruments I used...

Guitar:

  • Epiphone Les Paul Standard
  • Drop A# (A# F A# D# G C)
  • EMG 85/60 @ 18v

  • Mesa Dual Rectifier

  • Mesa 4x12 cab

Drums:

  • Superior Drummer w/ stock Avatar kit

Everything else:

  • Yamaha YPG-235 keyboard
  • Stock REAPER plugins

Sorry about the lame thumbnail - i might do something about it in the future

Please leave comments! compliments, criticism, death threats (ok maybe not death threats), etc!
i wanna get better! tell me what you like and dont like so i can improve!
