Thanks! That’s very generous!
Thanks for the responses! Much appreciated.
…the guitar solo is WILDLY inappropriate here
Now here’s the thing with the solo section. I did explore the soft option… but it just seemed at the time the whole thing was sounding WAY too prissy, sweet and syrupy… in fact I was thinking Holly needs to skip down the road, shop-lift a packet of Rothmans, smoke the lot THEN come back and sing the song! Ok, just kidding… - but I really felt like I needed to inject some dirt, a bit of ‘metal’ to offset the dominating ‘sweetness’ which is largely due to Holly’s vocal of course, backed by piano and strings. In other words opting for extreme contrast rather than complimenting what’s already there in abundance.
Ok, thinking about it, maybe a went TOO far… and perhaps toning it down a little is justified, but I aint doing flutes or recorders!
