A calm melodic piece in 6/8 which I partly composed on my iPad while I was on vacation in beautiful Venice, Italy

A piece with a long chord progression only played twice. With modulations and curls on the melody line and lots of fun chords. Instrumentation is dominated by many different guitar sounds. And a bass sound inspired by an old Italian song from the 60s.

Soft pop with a twist of jazz waltz.

The image is one I took at the Grand Canal in Venice. Enjoy.

Kenneth this is REALLY nice. I like the way you described the background of the song. You have good idea's when it comes to chord combinations/progressions.. This one can work too with vocals.. not me.. but there is some suggestion when listening that vocals would really suit this song well if you ever do another version. Must have been some vacation.. Great work.. as always.. Wayne

A very effective production and a good mix. I like the synth/bell effect partway through which adds an extra accent to the melody. Enjoyed all the guitar parts and a couple of them reminded me of the guitar sounds from the 60's spaghetti westerns. That's a great picture you took. Maybe we should have a scrapbook on here to just post photos. Enjoyed.

Has a Angelo Badalamenti feel to it for me. Lovely waltzing flow and glide to this. Love the guitars in this, beautiful dancing in mid-air melodies that I will be hearing in my head all day. Absolutely love the harpsichord? in this. Great work, thanks for sharing with us, outstanding.

I love Venice, and it sounds like you loved it, too, if this beautiful piece of music is anything to go by. I like the dream-like quality to it, slightly unsettling shifting chords underneath the pretty melody line. The guitar is very well played, with little twiddles on it. I don't know how you did that, but it's very appealing. And I LOVE waltzes, so this was one more thing to admire smiley

I like how you compose, I guess you have been effected by the same music I've enjoyed when young. Because I really do enjoy this melodic and reflective approach. Even the punchy bass and brings back to the wonderful 1960'ds sounds etc. that just don't seem to go away from me too far !

You really have a nice approach to music to my liking !

Nice track and well put together. That bass sound reminds me of Bert Kampfert and all those 60's pop instrumentals. It was a quite significant development for the electric bass as before that pop orchestras had used acoustic bass.

I can smell the coffee Ken (albeit an expensive one!)
This has an ambiance of drifting along after a splendid Venetian lunch perhaps...lovely recurring melodies that waft in and out and relax the listener.
Those ipads are useful little toys eh? If you can produce stuff like this on the go then where will it all end??

Happy days Kenneth...

Kenneth, absolutely my favorite piece from you! Well written, and the ambient flow of all voices speak in one universal language. AHHH the floating, and the history blended with the present, what a delight! This is NOT the Venetian canal that Kathrine Hepburn fell into, but one my ears will love to return to for a swim often!
BRAVO

Thanks so much for all the nice comments. I was very busy last week at work but tonight I believe I caught up with all your songs. So much lovely music from all of you. And that just makes me more proud when you come and visit my songs and leave your precious words.

By the way. This is the song that inspired the bass. A Eurovision winner from 1964. Gigliola Cinquetti - Non Ho L'Età. Italy won at the final in Copenhagen (Tivoli concert hall). This was when they still had a live orchestra.

Isn't it a wonderful song?
