Hey, everyone! I got through another draft of my puzzle/mystery track, “Gumshoes.” What you’ll hear is the last incarnation of the tune on Finale. Like my “Theme for the Woods,” I have decided to stop here and leave the track on the back burner until I revamp, mix, and master it in Logic. I’m waiting until I have a handful of tunes to work with before I start doing that, though, so it’ll be a while ’til you hear another draft unless I get inspired to add to it before then. There are a handful of things that I’ll experiment with tweaking when I get to the revamp, but for now, I think this is a pretty close rendition to the final. Enjoy!
In almost record time, I have come to release the second draft of my puzzle/mystery piece, “Gumshoes”! If you’ll recall from my post regarding the first draft, I’m writing to the above picture, which depicts Jen, Mog, and me as sleuths.
Let’s check out what I thought I would do last week and compare it to what I did do:
I’d like the initial right-hand melody with the non-piano support to be longer before there’s a transition into the viola-centric section. I enjoyed writing the support and want to use it to embellish the main melody more and in different ways early on. Not done. I decided not to do this after writing the very last parts of this draft. Instead of continuing in that spot, I kept the transition, which I liked, and then chose to create a whole new section of embellishment on the tail end of the piece, which will lead to whole new idea due to the new direction.
