Tolo - 'Lenie's Gift'
on: October 20, 2020, 20:08:23

Hello everyone... hope you are all healthy and well...

 This was written for a friend - who really supported me and my music through thick and thin - and so the story goes... for her birthday she wanted a song, and here it is. Like the person, this one is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma (like us all) - probably only two people can understand the layers and chapters here. It makes sense to me - but I am sure you guys will find your own meanings 😎

*Spoiler alert* - I go a bit 'prog / jazz' in this one... No idea how or why - but it seemed to suit at the time.

 Happy to receive feedback of any kind - let me know if it makes you feel anything at all etc...etc...

Ha, this is funny. I had a friend named Lenie. In class. So it's some time ago.
Lenie, a very very Amsterdam name.
And I like her present a lot. Except for the strat parts in II and IV position. To avoid that, my strat only has the trad I, II, and III positions.

I only wish you'd post the lyrics. (Got a Kitchener by the tail smiley).

I am curious about her reaction, your gesture is very nice.
Go go go To! @Tolo
Kind regards, Gus

@LePlongeur  - thanks Gus. Yes - the lady in question is Afrikaans - but of Dutch descent - so I guess that makes sense. I don't know how old you are - but this one is nearing 70 - so unlikely to be the same one... 8) Thanks for the feedback as always.

@Marcus Nalgaber  - appreciated Marcus - guitar guru thumbs up is good for me  ::e-guitar::

Ahhh, now I see @Tolo.
I am 28 all day long. Except when shaving. Then I am 70 in 2 months time.
In theory she could be ‘my’ Lenie. In reality it was a name that was frequently used. If she did MAVO3 exams in a school in Amsterdam Slotermeer? Otherwise she is your Lenie.
Kind regards, Gus

Tony this is music and symphonies exactly as I like them. From the big and wide soundscape to a mix of crystal clear and distored guitars on a layer of precious drum and bass beats. When I visualize the sound image and the tone taste you have chosen in your mix, many 60, 70, 80 images pop into my head.
Very well done

Hola @Tolo

Strolling through the forum that is a bit lonely in terms of movement and interchange I have seen your post and since I had not commented on anything despite believing that I had already commented to you, I will tell you today.

It is a very careful production, like all yours that I know. The sound of the guitar at some moments reminds me of the Wild West movies ... it's my appreciation, nothing more.
I like the development, the different parts appear with a musical logic that keeps the interest and the pauses give it breath.
It is true what you say, there are parts whose setting suggests many possibilities in thought.
Very nice listening

Keep well
