The girl on the great avenue
on: December 18, 2018, 16:08:38
Some time ago we met a very old lady and she told us her bicycle adventures around the great main avenue of the city of Madrid
This lady left this world a year ago and one night I started to make her this song that although it has no text, it has all that sometimes can not be expressed only with words.

Greetings,
Marcus

I love the sound of this.....your voice becomes an instrument. I'm playing it my office right now and one of my colleagues has just popped in for a listen.  :)

Wow, that was a pleasant surprise! I read you mainly do instrumentals which I'm not into that much but I really dig this. The "vocals" work brilliantly, an almost Arabic feel to it. I guess a little bit more low end in the mix would not hurt and I was not too fond of the sound of the acoustic (using a built in piezo mic?) but that's minor stuff of course. Well done & welcome!

Hey @Marcus Nalgaber .. wow I really like this. Not a listener of instrumentals generally myself so i was intrigued by the comments. - the vocal works really well. Off the back of the ‘trad’ thread it actually reminds me a little of a type of Irish singing called ‘Sean nós’ or translated, old way or style.  Check this guy out - I think you might like him :



Anyway, really enjoyed your song. Welcome to the Kitchen!

I picked up on the hook right away and it's still going around in my mind. A very pleasant listen.

Very sad about your friend and I'm sure she would appreciate such a thoughtful gesture in remembering her.

Welcome to the forum @Marcus Nalgaber !
I enjoyed the introduction to your work.
A nice groove on the rhythm guitar and the vocalisations are cool  (I can hear a similarity with the vocal effects of some of @Mora Amaro La Loba  songs). The music is a hypnotic contrast with the video`s busy city images and the melody stays with the listener.
