Track 4 is coming along nicely, although I think the guitar strum pattern during the folky parts was a bit bland. Here is a sample of what we have been working with.
It works, but it’s nothing special really. Bluegrass guitar is usually is a bit more interesting than this. That’s what I love about the genre, there’s so much talent in the instrumentation!
I have to admit that I’m not all that talented when it comes to more intricate guitar parts, but I took a crack at spicing up the strum pattern to make it a tad more interesting. Here are the results.
Not amazing, but still much better, in my opinion!
In other exciting news, Rob dropped some mandolin on this track as well. So then, here is the same clip with the newer guitar strums, and some simple mandolin. It’s not well mixed with the bass and drums yet, but we’re definitely getting somewhere with this track!
I suppose some banjo would be nice at some point too…
