A local group of guitarists came up with the idea of collecting original guitar instrumental tracks, compiling them into an album to put on iTunes, Spotify, etc., and donate any procedes to a charity (yet to be determined).
This seemed like a rare opportunity so I decided to toss my hat in the ring. Trial by fire!!
I had been fiddling around with a chord progression so I used that as a start.
Anyway, here is what I came up with. Fans of Stranger Things will understand the title :). What really surprised me was how fulfilling it was to "write" a song. This version was a scratch track, but in redoing parts I kept missing a certain something that I captured on the scratch track. So some misses here and there were fixed through the magic of technology rather than retake entire parts.
The bass player in my band was kind enough to provide a wonderful bass track that really tied the whole thing together.
I played the 2 rhythm guitar parts and the lead melody. Drum Beats+ provided the drum track, and my bass player laid down the bass track.
