Microdots

Nasty, brutish and short

I find myself making a lot more hastily assembled guitar instrumentals - this is one I did yesterday. My current methodology is: Find a rough idea and play the rhythm guitar into Logic Pro X, extemporising where necessary, with the tempo adapt feature turned on. Then add the other bits. Usually this results in random bizarre time signature shifts, but I seem to have managed to keep it all 4/4 this time. Yay, me. It's sometimes a surprise to hear what comes out. I have no idea why it's called Microdots.

Padded out to 1:30 by the judicious use of echo.

Oh, and all the guitars are a Fender Jaguar, the bass is a Fender Jazz and the drummer is the one that comes with Logic, because I don't do percussion.

I really liked it! Not a muso, but the particular tone of that guitar was beautiful.

Was slightly expecting sub five second Napalm Death metal from the "Nasty, brutish and short" description but that's 100% on me!
