Here's a tune that's all BIAB. This is an older tune that I never recorded until now. When I was playing in a band some years back, the keyboardist told me that nobody had ever written a song about or for her. So, I sat down and this was the tune I came up with: A Song for Mel

Sliced and diced in ACID Pro. It's a waltz and since not all BIAB track I have are in waltz, I had to cut and paste to create a waltz feel. Thanks for listening!

Plish, this is really great. We don't hear many waltzes anymore. Your vocal is outstanding and your lyrics are great!

I can hear Willie Nelson singing this one and in fact it did sound like Willie's guitar during the lead.

PS - you might want to tame the pedal steel at the end. Me thinks he over did the vibrato. YMMV.

Thanks for the input! Funny, you're the second person today to say this sounds Willie Nelson-ish.
Yeah, I actually had an even sharper ending but tweaked it to stretch it and bring it down. May be worth toning down a wee bit more ;-)

Thanks again!

Nice tune, I agree this has a Willie vibe about it. Enjoyed listening.

(PS. While I was at your page on RN I couldn't resist listening to Big Wad Of Gum - what a hoot!)

Thanks Josie!

Also, thanks for the reminder on BWoG! That's a total BIAB tune as well (at least that version) smile

Appreciate you taking the time to listen!

Yeah... Ntown doesn't do waltzes these days but they used to be huge there back in the day.

The line "dancing cheek to cheek" reminded me of my gigging days. Out drummer sand 70% of the show and ran the banter with the audience. When we were getting ready to start a slow one he'd often say, "Here's a slow one..... grab that special person and get out here on the floor and dance cheek to cheek..... and if you don't like dancing cheek to cheek, you can always turn around and face each other"

Nice job and I'm also down with the Willie vibe. BTW, you did a great job splicing up those RT's to maintain the waltz feel.
