Don't Be Shy by HatchBatch Released!

Written back in 2020, this track was inspired by a viewing Big Fish in concert.  The original Stratocaster lead was converted from audio to midi, cleaned up in Cubase Score, and then converted back to audio.  It's a fast 2/4 cut time with a triplet on the quarter note.  Thus, normally called a swing, in 2/4.  Keyboard plays on the 1/2 beat most of the time.  The strings are accent on verse but pad on the chorus.  What can I say, the drums are hot!   A dance track.

New Track Out! Feeling My Way Check it out!

  Feeling My Way (Spotify) I am "Feeling My Way" into a new process to create music.  This track is the start of a new vocal to instrumental series.   This track started as a Strat guitar with voice improvisation. Later the voice impro was converted into a Strat guitar lead.  Next the guitar audio creates a chord track which then runs an automated rhythm guitar accompaniment.  The string part came later as an improvised counter harmony.

@billjonesmusicstudio now on Instagram!

  I've setup an account on Instagram  @billjonesmusicstudio It was a learning experience on getting a decent product to the platform.  I started the account with daily improvises, called the Video Jam Series. I also modified some YouTube videos to run on the platform.  Currently, I am working on a new method of creating music using improvised voice and guitar/keyboard.  My experiment with Instagram Reels went well, with one posting spinning up 1,200 plays.      The Video Jam Series shot live guitar and keyboard improvises.  Some jam motifs are worked out a few minutes before.  The goal is to capture improvised music.  Then, after initial recording of audio on both iPhone and Cubase DAW, the audio is processed.    Processing can include: Adding complementary instruments Adding EQ, compression, guitar amps, normalization, tempo detection, midi note editing   Importing video to Cubase, lining up audio files, exporting video with processed audio   Video is converted to the Instagram &q

NEW RELEASE! Acoustic Guitar Solos by HatchBatch

For about the last 8 months, especially during pre-vaccine COVID-19 days, I have been recording acoustic guitar.  Some of the tracks in this release originated from several video series on Instagram.  Others were final versions of tracks written earlier in 2020.  Most tracks are missing drums and the volume is set fairly low.  This makes for "easy listening" and a very relaxing 1/2 hour of music (16 songs, 28 min 42 sec).
