I have a brief song in my collection, provenance unknown. It’s about a minute & three-quarters, and sounds a lot like the closing credits to a TV show. The feel of the piece is a bit melancholy and has a slightly Western sound (as in Country, not occidental).
It’s in a somewhat slow 3-time with a heavy beat on one, kind of a lugubrious waltz. What few shorter notes there are in a quarter/eighth triplet pattern (or you could say it’s in 9/8).
The melody is a fairly basic four bar pattern played on an acoustic guitar, and gets repeated with some slight variation. After the first few times, a slide guitar comes in. About a minute in, strings swell and the guitar is played more forcefully; there’s some winds a bit after that (could be synth) as well. Then it all quiets down a bit and ends.
The basic rhythm, with the first measure lead-in is (- means no notes played):
1 2 3 [| 1 - - | 1 - -&| 1 - - | 1 2 3]
(repeat bracketed segment, with some varying rhythms in the third and fourth measure)
Forgot to mention, it must have come before 2007, as that’s the date I have on the file. No other information, other than it does sound familiar to me.
