Points of Departure (2/4: Guitar)

Guitar (melody) track to “Points of Departure”, the eighth song (and title track) from my recent Jamendo album.

There are only four tracks in this release series:

1. Bass
2. Guitar
3. Piano
4. Percussion (made with Renoise)

This song is meant to serve as a complement to “The Wind of Distant Planets.” Where the seventh song had a very busy sonic space, this one is comparatively open.

On the chorus sections, the bass changes from a riff to a cascading series of chords that push each bar by a quarter notes (salsa bass style). The changes in this section are all derivatives of the B diminished scale — B13b9, D13b9, and F13b9, essentially a cycle of substitutions.
