"The Dreaming" is a laid-back melodic instrumental with a dreamy feel.

I decided to try and capture the tone of my tube amp, rather than recording direct with amp simulators. I'm pretty happy with the results for my first attempt. I also had some challenges with mixing this release and spent more time on it than I have with any past releases - I feel like I finally got what I wanted though.

I used the middle pickup on my strat for most of this which is not a usual choice for me, but it just seemed to have a singing quality to it. I also enjoyed doing the volume pot swells and creating all the ambient noise for the outro section.
