A wrote this ballad many years ago as a straight ahead guitar picking song. Over the years I’ve wanted to release it but just couldn’t find the right string sounds until now. Summer love could be considered an ambient or movie theme track but I love it. The string arrangement took lots of time but I think the drums where the biggest challenge. Programming the breaks and transitions is always challenge but is also one of my favorite parts. Being able to hear what you want and then struggle to make it happen is very rewarding. All of the animated scenic shots in this video I found for free on various websites. the rest are photos I’ve taken and animation I created.
You will find this track on my ninth album “I’m gonna let it ride”. The album has eight cool tracks with a mix of Ballads, Blues and Smooth Jazz. Check out Never meant to make you cry, I miss you and the title track I’m gonna let it ride.
