Another acoustic, instrumental tune. This is the first track I've made in GarageBand (my Ubuntu machine died hard last week).

I love the noises that filter in. Awesome harmonics and door knocking percussion. How did you make that ringing at about 1:50?

This feels much cleaner recording wise than your other stuff, not to put any of it down.

@Corduroy: The ringing is made by... a cop car driving past. That's another thing different about this and previous recordings - new digs in NW DC. The cleaner recording is probably thanks to the new MacBook (a work machine, don't tell anyone!).

Oh, wait, that ringing is actually my guitar. The song was feelin Sigur Ros'y, so I went in that direction.

A new MacBook? Funny, mine came in the mail today and I have done nothing but play with the new Garageband. The recordings are so much cleaner than on my dads old laptop that I used before. I've sort of felt a kinship with your recordings because we seem to have the fuzziest laptop mic recordings on this site. And now we both 'updated' at the same time.

And yeah, it does have a Sigur Ros thing going on, and that ringing guitar is very nice.
