Through The Secret Door (for Vickie)

from Short Songs For Patrons II by Chris Carlier



Initially, I was going to go for something in the Canadiana/Americana vein for Vickie, but, as usual, music had other plans. I had this bassline stuck in my head, and it didn't really make sense on an bass guitar, so synthesizer it was!

At one point, I had a bunch of complicated stuff added to it for ambience and to fill it in, but the more I added, the less I liked, so I dialed it all back to just a simple bassline, a melody, and a light bit of harmony to complement.
