i became possessed w/ wanting to make a train tune. i was thinking that i was able enough to represent musically what was going on inside. i then decided, that if this were true, i should be able to pick a theme and see if the theme could be confirmed by others - kind of... addmittedly, it was an easy subject for percussion. curious to hear if it's a strange african train to you... way lotta intense focus to get this out of gb - that makes me so afraid of logic pro express, but it's next in line if anyone has any good thoughts about it, please share. thanks for stoppin by and thanks for your comments. cyd

Congratulations on this production which is a very solid and good work. It will accord me while I´m driving. Don´t be afraid of Logic Pro. It will take you time but it is a fantastic programm - especially since it came to apple. There is so much to discover in it. I love it even I don´t know all it´s hidden secrets. Each day there is something new to be discovered and in the beginning you can use it like GB. There are things which I can do better in GB f.e.recording midi and audio in the same time. But Pro is a Pro-programm.

Definitely not your typical train tune. Very good.
Am thinking about Logic Express myself - it was recommended to me by a friend - lots more sounds, better sequencing and scoring also.

cydniko Artist thanks for all of the kind words they mean alot to me, expecially at this point in the process. i'm really excited about my new toy, gb, but just a little intimidated by logic pro. the only thing that helps is, that i love to read manuals.: ) thanks for sharing your thoughts on logic pro and also, thanks for taking the time to listen and then, respond. that's a biggie.

A very cool tune! Love the sound effects. Great groove and feel. The bass sound is well-chosen.

I have my own train tune, you know -- it's called "Railroad Jazz." You might like to listen to it. It's here on iCompositions.

At my elementary school music job, I put on a show with my first graders called "Songs of the Railroad." We bought them all engineer hats. We had choreography -- it was great. Among other songs, we did, "The Loco-Motion."

Keep posting, Cyd! I wanna hear some more.

This is very nice. Bluesmen used to work on the tain motif so there's a good tradition going anyway, but this is something else. Well done. (y)
I'm gonna go listen to your other stuff now. smiley

I like the way it is sort of disjointed and a bit out of time...until the first train passes...and then it falls together very nicely. I jumped trains as a kid...rode them back and forth across the great plains...so I was hooked.

I'm a real train fanatic so anything to do with trains is good. I also have a train song. It's just called 'Trains' for now. I will upload it at a later date. It's sort of based on something done by Pink Floyd, so keep an eye out for it.

Thanks

only just discovered this one.
really great train tune.
I am into model railroading and this hits the spot!
It does have an African Soweto kind of groove.
I can imagine all the hard work that went into it.
love it!

Absolutly fantastic!
A bit looong and monotone after halfway...
But I guess there's some distance between the stations!
I got oilstains on my hands!
and I can smell them....
when is the next due?
Chew chew....
