I've had this chord progression in the head for a while but didn't know what I could do with it. This sounds rather like a jam than anything else and it's been a bit frustrating to not be able to make something more polished with this, I've felt annoyed on so many levels, my playing, the sound, the mix, somehow the track seemed to request more work than I could give it this week. I might keep working on this someday. Guitars and bass through Line6 Helix, drums is EZDrummer2.
This is an outtake from this week's livestream jam session, and I hope it shows how much better it is to jam along with someone else (although noodling alone has its perks!)

Here's a slightly derivative track this week. I had a few light and fun melodies which I mixed in one track, poured some samples, stirred a little and here's this... thing. It's not bad, it's not very good either, but it kinda flew together in a random fashion. The process was not unpleasant.
Another four-track all-guitar thing, again very loose. I'm working toward something with these, and while this one doesn't get there, it's a step. Four channels of PureSalem Mendiola, one of them through Balls Effects KWB, all of them with varying degrees of convolution reverb.
The title comes from the "beginning" association of the surat Al-Alaq.
