Weekly #songrequests: “melancholy” (2013.09.04)


This week’s #songrequests takes us to a slower, more melancholy place. I asked you what instruments I should use and the ones that seemed to fit into this style included: banjo, ukulele, violin, trumpet, water in glasses, hydraulophone, bouzouki, duduk, shenai. I was able to work in some guitar-ish sounds, plucked strings, violin, a lonely-sounding lead, and a glass harp. (The last one is that wine glass sample I captured this weekend.)

p.s. I’d love for you to hear me live! Yes, in the real! Check out my upcoming shows in October:
