Thanks for the positive feedback!

Icelander, I've sent a PM so you can hear what I was thinking of when I wrote it.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

It was really a sort of transition thing from Miller's jazz to the "Rock-a-billy", with some elements of both (check the Anders sisters "Bugle boy" sample ). The jazzy element in these 'full band' boogies comes primarily in the voicing of the vocals, while keeping the core chords of the band relatively simple.
Boogie woogie 'purists' would however say that a proper BW should be entirely performed on a piano (like here ).
In many ways songs in this style are basically just a fast 12-bar blues, only with major 6th chords rather than 7th. I confess I cheated a bit on that last part, by adding a dim chord, but oh well. For a first (and my only) swing song to date, I'd say it's close enuff! wink

That'd be Reykjavik, yes...and kudos for spelling it correctly wink
However, I think you're the first finnish person to refer to either of our countries as 'Scandinavian'. Most people only include the other three nordic countries in that definition (we get exluded for geography, you for the language).
Anyway, thanks for the compliments... although it now rather looks like David has stolen most of my thunder here already, grmbl! grin

In case anyone is curious, we've agreed not to continue with the collaboration.

Thanks for the folk who liked the lyric - including Icelander.

As Icelander put it, he was looking for someone to simply add some paint his completed house - not suggest remodeling it by tearing down a wall.

I'm just not clever enough to write a lyric that hits every note as written - even with my own songs! smile

Nice tune Icelander and we're curious about the result, when the vocals (and lyrics of course) come in.

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: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

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": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

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