Genesis of the Song

Forgetfulness and sloppiness sometimes result in new grooves. Decided to create a song based on a ccmixter guitar line. Looking through guitar samples, unreal_dm’s C_100 seemed a reasonable victim.

While considering an accompaniment for C_100, pitched C_100 up to Eb to try some accompaniment in Eb and then went back to C forgetting that the guitar was pitched up 3 steps. The result was a pleasantly dark, mellow groove.

C_100 was remixed with very few tweaks and changes to d’notes. In addition to pitching up the track 3 steps, we ran the track through Amplitube for more bite, twang and bit a spring reverb.

Once the bass, rhodes and guitar groove was in place, drums were needed. Searching ccmixter for drums at 100-105 bpm, discovered that Rey’s Gentle Joy drum loop well complemented the bass line.

At this point Rey_DM was basically done. However, Rey provided a bell loop with Gentle Joy that was calling out for love and attention. Pasted in the bell loop with some minor tweaks and it added some needed color. ElRon added more color with the horn accents, starting bells and final production. All rutabagas were removed.
