Hello musos!

I have just finished my latest track. Its a bit of a mixture of electronica, jazz fusion, classical, and prog rock. It has plenty of fretless electric guitar and LinnStrument too.

I hope you enjoy! :)

As soon as I saw fretless guitar and LinnStrument I had to have a listen.
Awesome sounds!
Constantly evolving and fascinating!
I like the key for the guitar solo (and nicely played!)
Well done Jonny!

Finding 10 minutes in my day is tough but I managed.

As a big prog rock fan going back almost 50 years, I can't say I've heard anything that quite sounds like this. You seem to have a little bit of everything in there. Closest I can point to, and even this is as loose as it gets, is Tangerine Dream. But even they're a stretch here.

Enjoyed every second.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it, and took the time to listen. I suppose what I like about progressive music, is that it gives you a license to be as creative as you want, without any concern that your ideas should suit a particular style. As long as they are congruent, it's okay :party: It is a long piece of music, so I'm glad you had a good time :)

I was just listening to McLaughlin's The Promise and this fits in nicely with stuff from that period. :tu:

Lurvely! (And a +1 on the McLaughlin "Promise" comparison...)

Thanks heaps guys :)

I'll have to check out 'The Promise'. I've got a bunch of Mahavishnu albums but haven't listened to McLauchlin's solo stuff. I'm always on the look out for new music to listen to!

I don't know that I would put The Promise up too high but as with any of his albums and cds you're bound to find interesting bits...and the scope of his work is still among the most impressive for any guitarist. To wit, the year before the Inner Mounting Flame, I heard him for the first time in this acoustic duo with Larry Coryell:
