BLUES FOR AFTER THE RAIN
Instrumental Guitar Composition by
Robert Len Stallard -- Guitarist-Composer
-
I recorded this video on 18-Aug-07 during another creative night of insomnia. In this video, I perform my original instrumental guitar composition "Blues for after the Rain". This is one of the tunes I most enjoy performing.
ABOUT THE TECHNIQUES
-
The guitar tuning for this song is DADFAD (D minor) and I use some of my usual "self-derived" techniques that define my guitar playing style. The only effects I use for the guitar are EQ and reverb recorded in stereo. I'm playing my trusty Ibanez Talman TCY20VV small-bodied acoustic-electric guitar.
ABOUT THE COMPOSITION
-
I composed this tune between January and September 2005. My inspiration came from two events: A night without electricity after a severe thunder storm and evacuating with my family from Houston to Oklahoma during hurricane Rita. Fortunately, the hurricane missed Houston by about 100 miles, but unfortunately it did produce some tragic effects.
Because of the circumstances that inspired this composition, I dedicate it to the victims of natural disasters worldwide and as a prayer for the survivors, hoping that they have put their lives back together or soon will do so.
This tune reveals my influences from blues and progressive rock music such as that from Pink Floyd, Yes and others. Though it is a bit long, the tune presents several variations throughout so it's like several songs in one. Hence, I categorize it as "progressive-symphonic" blues.
ABOUT THE VIDEO
-
In addition to my performance, you will see in the background actual time-lapsed video of cloud formations in movement and hear real sounds of stormy weather. I experiment with various video filter effects and accelerate the speed of cloud motion.
The source of the photos and background videos are from various online public domain repositories, and the storm audio files are royalty-free sound effects (waves) I purchased online from the authors. Here are the main sources
