Track 5: Ultralight

I’ve just finished re-tracking Ultralight. This song was written circa 2010 if my memory serves me correctly.

It’s written in Bm; the rhythm for the chorus is a technically challenging scale pattern that is somewhat reminiscent of the rhythm used on Yngwie Malmsteen’s track Deja Vu.

And there’s also the challenge-response solo bit between 2:45 and 4:15 which I’ve preserved from the 2010 take. We march to alternating drum beats in that section, which definitely breaks up the monotony of the timekeeper and influences the dynamics of the song a bit more!

This is track number 5 for the new album, and I hope to write another one prior to our upcoming Croatian road trip.
