What happened to the soundclick players on the posts?

Seems Soundclick has finally disabled the embedded player.

I notice overnight all the music links on this blog are gone. Here is a blog post on how much that affected my hits: https://anttismusic...

The Smell Of Stale Cigarettes / She Leaves In Dawn


EDIT NEXT DAY (I Added vocals)
(And also made some of the instruments a little quieter (I updated the instrumental), I still hear it has some problems especially where the verses start, but I am not feeling too great, so I let those problems be. (On another hand feeling shitty helped me write the lyrics.. :D))

Another day another instrumental, I would love to sing on this one, but my voice is shot and I do not know why. But since 2011.. My flus tend to take 3 months at a time..

Today.. I decided to make something different once again.. So.. I watched a country song tutorial:

To make my own melody.. I painted a 9 bar long C melodic scale and made something a little
bit similar.. Then to write the chords.. They were easy to find for the melody, C, Eminor, F and G.

To write the slow part in the middle, I simply painted over all the notes, then pressed down the
alt key and stretched the notes to be twice as long.. I added some notes to the piano chords so it
did not sound too sparse and added some more hi hats..

The Ample lite 2 guitar is playing a pre made country guitar pattern in the end.. I chose some simpler
chords for the beginning to give it more of a feeling of a change..

The strings playing in the fast part are intentionally moved a little bit off so that they fit the melody better, violins naturally have to start a little earlier than piano to be in time..

And that is it..


The Smell Of Stale Cigarettes

the smell of stale of stale cigarettes
and trace of her perfume oh lord
is all I have left now
since she left in the dawn

goodbye my love she said
just like
on the night we met

goodbye my love she said
and this time
it's for good

the smell of stale of stale cigarettes
and trace of her perfume oh lord
is all I have left now
since she left in the dawn

just like a cliche in a country song
I am left, wondering, what I did wrong
I couldn't help myself
I just had to screw it up

Just like a cliche in country song
with my, achy breaky heart
so it goes, this old, life
kids grow up, and so did, you and I
