This is a great collaboration between Wade and Nuno. I had so many approaches, including looking into Lebanese Dabke rhythms to provide some kind of backing. None of them worked and, as usual, the simplest approach seemed the most effective.

The drums are very straightforward: a simple half-time pattern acting as a counterpoint to Nuno's syncopation, picking it up a bit towards the end. I overdubbed the ride cymbal pattern for the verses. It originally played all the way through but it sounded clumsier on the louder sections so I cut it out. The ride cymbal idea stems from both my intent to get some kind of matching rhythm in plus was inspired a bit by Pink Floyd's 'Let There Be Light'.

Anyway, I hope you like and enjoy. HD download available as the mix could probably be better.

You're welcome, Nuno. This, like so many of your uploads, is quirky but so very, very satisfying and enjoyable. I don't pretend that the opening similarity to a PF tune I mentioned didn't help the inspiration, but I love this template.

I had so many ideas for this track, but the very simplest beat worked best for me. Keep the time and let you and Wade deservedly shine!

This is a great track. Not for everyone's tastes, but it's the rhythms, tones and originality which sets your playing apart. Wade's refined playing just raised it to another level.

Very well done. All I did was add an easy drum rhythm to it. The glory is both of yours.
