Daybreak (Slide Guitar)

June 22nd, 2018 + 4:06 PM  ·  JieXian

Hi guys! It's been a long time since I last posted here. I hope all is well with you.

I had spent some time working on a song that started out as "15 to 5" (which I had posted here) now turned into "Daybreak". It has a slide guitar but it isn't a traditional blues song, and I referenced Rodrigo y Gabriela's tracks quite a bit for this.

I posted it here because it's not music video, and I'm not really looking for a review focused on the video.

I'm quite happy with its current state but I feel that I there is more that I can do, composition/arrangement wise. I feel that an element is missing, like a melody or some vocals (and adapting the arrangement to fit it).


I hope you'll like it!

Hi everyone!

I received an email a few months ago and I thought I'd come back to say hi!

For some reason I took a break from making music back when I was more active here, and when I got back I had forgotten about this place

I wasn't very active back then so you might not know me but I remember how everyone was so attentive and detailed in giving me valuable feedback, I had learnt a lot from you guys and I'm very fond of this place.

I have been extremely busy with my work and I have had to put making music aside .... but now when I'm thinking of getting back into this I find that this place isn't as busy as it had been back in 2012

Oh well

epiphany at last

Updated version:


added a crescendo and changed the guitar tone and other small mixing tweaks

after hitting so many many dead ends, I've finally found an arrangement I'm happy with.

a v3 of this:


Somehow the limiter clipped in places that shouldnt. I set a ceiling of -0.3 but somehow it clipped in 1 spot where the intensity never reached that high >_>

What am I

Halt! Just lie down and stare at the sky...

My first ever track with Ableton

The next step I'm thinking of is to add a more percussive climax a la


(Denis you can add a guitar lead if you'd like. I can't make it work and I feel satisfied with this )

I have a problem with making it louder without clipping it...
