Thanks for the comment and listening. The original was played on steel guitar by Santo and Johny (Sleep Walk) Some parts remind me of the sounds of a music box. I used to really like listening to them as a kid. They most usually had trailing notes in between the melody notes, somewhat to playing a chord one note at a time with slow equal spacing. I am sure there is a Santo and Johny video out there.

A really busy musician site I used to hang out at has gone to a couple posts a year in the music section. The rest of it is about as slow. Job climate and all I think people are more worried about surviving than posting.

In the comments you said the original might be hardly recognizable, but no issue for me as this is my first expeosure to a songe named Sleep Walk. Also you said it might sound like a music box version, again that reference is lost on me, unless you mean literally an old time wind-up music box.

In any case your Almost Sleeep Walk does have a pretty sound to it.


Far as it being quiet around here on BRB, It has been that way a long time now, and it seems to have gotten worse that last few weeks.

My version of Sleep Walk has a "music box" feel to it This version is simple enough for most to learn if you enjoy it. This was recorded direct into a my first DAW using a Zoom G2 for a pre amp. It may have a smidge of reverb on it but that is about all. It wasn't edited just played straight through, so there is an occasional "bump" but nothing too distracting.

I come here occasionally but seldom see many new posts. Where did all the people go? It was really busy when I first joined. Sad since this was a real friendly place.

Regardless it has some fair ideas in it for those who may wish to use them so I "cleaned" it up a bit.
As usual, for me, it's all about the guitar. I'm still working out how I want to present the vocal at this time.

To some of the people round here the name Mike Vernon might sound familiar, particularly if you're blues fans. Check out his impressive curriculum:

I've just had the honour of having him as producer of my new band's first EP. If you want to take a look or download our songs for free, just click here:

And here's a NEW VIDEO of another song he and I wrote together:
