    Been playing with Reason all night to try to get a Toto feel into Herbie Hancock's "Maiden Voyage." It didn't come out quite like I'd hoped, but I thought I'd share anyway.

    Maiden Voyage backing

    I layed down a quick melody, but the solo part is just scrap. I'll probably try again tomorrow when I'm not so exhausted. ;)

    Maiden Wreckage

    If anyone could throw a decent solo over this it would be much appreciated. :D

    Edit: Just uploaded a new version of the backing. I threw a rock beat over the solo section to get it a little closer to the Toto version I'm shooting for.

    BTW, here's a remix of Toto's take that I've been playing with:
    Remix of Toto's "Maiden Voyage" - NOT Norm playing!!!

    As you can see, I've got my work cut out for me. ;)

    I'm done beating myself up over this one.

    Lessons learned:
    1. I don't have the skills to produce a backing in Reason that sounds as good as whoever produces Toto. ;)
    2. Steve Lukather makes it sound easy to play slow. It's not! He embellishes every note.
    3. I suck at covers! (I'm not even gonna mention my improv limitations) :(

    Maiden Voyage, final take...for now

    BTW, I just uploaded the final version of the backing also. Same link as before.

    don't beat up on yourself Norm. Yah done good and thats a tough one. Even knowing the chords, I can't get anywhere with it at all.
