Bayou-style Jam? - Dadmother [WIP]

Just started working on a little jam inspired by a sort of Cajun/kind of bluegrass sound (maybe with a sprinkle of Celtic influence?). Anyway, I’m enjoying making it so far. Right now, it’s just a flow of ideas that have had very little automation/mixing/anything done to them, so it’s rough, but the ideas are coming together and the foundation is in progress! Here’s a little snippet:

@MisterMaster, thanks for keeping the posts sharp :heart:

Gonna try and use the upright bass in this! Probably pizzicato to make the track more thump-y.

we have sax and we have pepper full shape and low low pass, but we need better. The glacial and crate digger packs have some nice organic drums we could use.

Some of the percussion did indeed come from Glacier :sunglasses:

nice! Also, lake is a good sub bass when you layer it with something else. Maybe velvet with turned down low pass could work. Idk if you need a sub bass, but this is a good tip regardless.
