Pat - as always, I enjoy reading your thoughts on a song almost as much as writing it in the first place...

"...from concept to chords, lyrics to leads, mix to minstrel.."

That sounds like a songwriter to me (a good one!) - get on that horse, boy, and lay on those spurs!

Danny - thanks for that.

rickey - appreciate the listen...

The best use of the internet IMHO is collaboration. A good use of technology and a good production.

You done did it again! Very nice touch. I really like the way you are able to jump around from genre to genre, but without losing your "signature" sound. Very good job with the lyrics, and the vocals are as good as ever.


Good job, cuz! About time you had something on the forum again! I always enjoy your playing, just wish I could hear it more often.

Good job, guys!

Wow Floyd you really did an incredible job of mixing! I'm doing so many hours of Audio and Video editing for my Church, that I haven't made much music this year. When I saw Floyd's wishlist post I knew this would be the easy way to make music, let him do all the work! Thanks for the kind comments Guys and Josie, Hope Yall have a Great Week!

To steal a phrase from the Allman Bros...that tune is "hitting the note" all the way from the git-go. What a showcase for your song, Tommy's picking and BIAB. And it has the ultimate quality for me -- I want to listen repeatedly. Wonderful effort guys!

I thought this one had "run it's course" and was fading away. That is why I posted a new one (More Than Just A Vase). And then it pops up..

Tommy - Thanks again, man! I really appreciate you lending a hand on this. I think everyone else appreciated it, too!!!

Joanne - thanks for the listen.

Frank - nice of you to drop by...

Dean - good to see you comin' 'round again... thanks.

Bud - thanks!

Hey Floyd,

I didn't think this day would come, but it finally has. Tommy and you burn on this track, but the ending with that buzz saw A (the tonic) leaves E hanging at the end. That's the 5th which is the tension note for resolving back to the tonic. Having it be the last note that the listener hears "upends the end."

It's obviously not a fatal flaw, and you're the only one I'd point it out to without fearing the need to come back with apologies, retractions, etc.

Let that buzz saw sing, but cut the switch if it tries to run beyond A

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:
