Fly Higher has its name from the fact that I composed the first notes sitting with my iPad on an air plane. So the name stuck

It is a pop song with a strong melody and a swinging jazzy rhythm. I have been playing with changing key several times during the rather long chord progression. Mainly acoustic instruments and voices. But also a few polished synth sounds.

And it is the first song I post where I play on my new Roland A-88 midi keyboard. And I love it.

Very happy old country/americana/western feel. Love the melody. It is great you could start this idea on your iPad and then do more later. Technology is so cool! I love the chords and shifts. Do DO DOGGY! DOGGY! mm DA DA! love it!

Peace,
Tony

I like the fact that your synths and technology don't dominate your tunes...you leave room for acoustic guitars (and the little vocal doob a doos) and such. They don't overpower the listener which is a great touch.

Nice, ken. smiley

Very nice, Ken. Don't you just love the iPad? Greatest thing since the four-track.

Those voices give the piece an Enya-esque feel for me.

I once composed a song on an airplane. You seem to have had a much prettier and all round more pleasant experience. Granted, mine was in China squished into a tiny chair on the way back to Hong Kong in a thunderstorm, lol

This is terrifically pretty. Its simple melody and chords seem ready for a commercial about the iPad and its wonders!

You have a nice happy feel in this one. This can turn into something really cool. Even cooler than this is if you move it one step forward in an open collab. You may get something even cool out of the tune but I do note your creativeness. Very nice indeed.
Oh I hear some female vocals now - See there you go. COOL!!

Mikee Artist Has a cinematic feel to it, almost like when they use Simon and Garfunkel songs in movies. Has that same melodrama/melancholia in there somewhere. Very cool.

Happy mood, uplifting. Graceful ease, flying high above the clouds. Love the plucky acoustic guitar? & the vocals are sublime. Wonderful interplay between the guitar & keys. This melody will be playing over & over in my mind all day long. It's a beaut.

Thanks for sharing with us. Masterful original composition, vision, performance & production.

Thank you so much for the nice comments.

The strings on this one are synth. I have used both Omnisphere and Zebra synth sounds and I usually tweak them a little from the presets

Another beauty, Kenneth. I love how you are able to work with these long chord structures. It's a real skill. To make something so coherent, with a melody that carries you all the way through, that's not easy. I love the second guitar instrument, acoustic, such a nice and bright tone to it. The voices add a playfulness, with their choppy arpeggios.
