.....   

and although I know I can overlay sounds on my FX box - I'm not at all sure I can play a "take" in reverse....  hmmmm  - does Audacity have that function I wonder...  I'm sure it does - won't be quite the same....  sounds like a project for this coming weekend...  LOLOL

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Interesting concept!

Audacity does have "reverse", it's right in the default effects. 

Violin/fiddle has a less consistent envelope than plucked instruments (where each note starts loud and then fades/decays), so it *can* be less obvious of a "backwards" instrument sound when the track is reversed.

Next question? 

Did he write it with the thought of playing forward and backwards at the same time?

It sounded pretty good to me played together.

 

Just curious,

  Oh yes, I would really believe so, it is not "accidental" by any stretch of the imagination LOL, and is just the sort of thing a crazy genius would do.....    It's kind of like a "rondo" taken to the ultimate extreme...  why "bother to overlay the same parts, offset by a bar, when you can harmonize the entire piece by playing it backwards......"  

EDIT:  I've only got as far as starting out with an arpeggio (seemed simple) C, E, G, C', C' G, E, D - and even THAT is quite strange when overlaid in reverse because of the overlay of the C and C' being a strong octave sound, and the overlaid E and G which I would have imagined might have had a "minor 3rd" quality to it, doesn't really sound as "obvious as I would have thought"....  interesting...

I mean to say, obvious, ain't it ?   ( Scottish humor at work here.... ) roflol
