It would be difficult to argue that Shakira put a foot wrong between Dónde Están Los Ladrones? and the Fijación Oral albums but being dragged into the Diva business and inevitable celebrity collaborations may have been good for sales but something seems to have been lost along the way.

It better be quite short as you’ve got twenty minutes.

For Bill

Having seen the call to guitars from Chords Of Orion I’ve knocked out a tune for #AmbientGuitarHighlights.

The series I’m attempting to appear in has been quite generous in the application of the Ambient tag so the fact that I’ve overplayed a bit will hopefully not be my undoing.

This was going to be backing for E-bow and what not but in the end I rather liked it as it stood. For anyone who follows Bill’s channel the choice of UD Stomp to base the sound around will come as no surprise but everything else was added on a whim.

It may all look a bit serious which is due to not being entirely decided on the structure of the tune before setting off and trying to remember when to wiggle the controller and volume pedals.

I’m going to claim the fluffs were in fact on purpose as they tended to produce the most interesting delay effects.

This was not the first take.
