Did you try the link? Soundcloud is acting wonky.

Yes, "Sorry! We can't find that track. Did you try to access a private track, but were not logged in? Maybe the track has been removed."

That's what I get when I hit the soundcloud link

Okay, it should be embedded here now. Sorry about that.

I finally found what was picking at my brain.

This song jumped into my mind during the outro at the end, specifically the repeating melody over the vamp on the tonic. Different keys, but transposed and reimposed and thrown over this groove was fun times!

I mean the chord progressions are quite different, I had to sort of stretch this idea to make it sound good. Fixing that pink floyd groove in my mind to make it fit well with the tempo of this collaboration you put up was more of the challenge than anything, while still capturing that pink floyd melody

My favorite Floyd song.

I'd love to hear what you came up with.

Coincidence, I think not.

It really wasn't anything more than my pursuit of this melody that jumped out upon hearing your collab. Basically playback the collaboration and take whatever instrument you want and just figure out that pink floyd riff and play it in the key of E rather than it's original key of G. That's all I really did.

With that said, I am really starting to think that coming across this social construct, with the people I've encountered thus far, is almost too good to be true.

I am just learning the ropes of Ableton Live, the computerized perspective of music making is very new to me, I'm from a background of classical piano, and free improv. So I would love to add something in the future but would probably need a hand to get myself to a point of effectively contributing something. This sounds like a lot of fun though =)

Ah man!!! I'm digging this vamp. I'm gonna go break it down on my keyboard now! Be back later with questions and comments, as I am bound they will come up.
