Harvest Soundclick


Out in the meadow tossing hay.
The skies above are turning grey.

Get it stacked before it rains.
Or our work will be in vain.

The summer breeze is blowing in.
With work near done its time to grin.

Standing silent all stacked in rows.
Lets load it up its time to go.

Slaving hard from dawn to dusk shuck the kernels off the husk, lets go.

We dose-doe do when evening comes, play the fiddle beat the drum lets go

While in the field I'm plowing mud.
Work so hard I'm sweating blood.

Turning sod and plowing straight.
Dinners waiting at the gate.

Fresh earth makes the sweetest smell.
The seed is in and planted well.

Throwing sticks and chasing crows.
The seed the steal from fresh hewed rows.

Slaving hard from dawn to dusk shuck the kernels off the husk, lets go.

We dose-doe do when evening comes, play the fiddle beat the drum lets go

Hi Rob,

You've got a great ear for melody. I loved the feel of this one. Reaper is a great DAW. I was a longtime Sonar user but moved over to Reaper and have never regretted the change. Reaper is also now way more superior with MIDI than it used to be. That's a great asset for things like strings.

Ron, this is top shelf all the way. Great backing tracks with a super vocal.
Never question your wife's choices. You were one of them!

Super job, Robert.
Thanks for posting it. Was it all done in BIAB? (or did I miss something.

Seems to me that some handclapping would be a great addition. Call the mates over for some Fosters and set up a couple of mics!!!
Record a stereo party then fade it in or out.

Too Cooloola!!

Fantastic! Wonderful use of BIAB. I love the vocals too. The only thing I'd drop is the constant tambourine. Great lyrics too.

I love this and this is why I love BIAB. It has really freed me.

Great tune!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication:

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me":

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
