Uses samples from:


Tools I Used

I used, miking the instruments acoustically with an SM-58

Samples I Used

I used the acoustic guitar and lead vocal from Shannon Hurley's "Sunrise", which is licensed CC NC.

Original Samples

I added a rhythm mandolin part and counterpointed it to the guitar, in order to make the guitar sound a bit more exotic. I added a guitar and lead mandolin on a "riff" that is not in the original, and let the guitar fill the space after the bridge with the solo. Plus there's a tambourine.


No real issue here. I played everything from 0:00.

Other Notes

This was a hell of a lot of fun. I heard something else in the song from the way the original producer did it - something simpler, yearning to break free. This was my attempt to release that.
