Thanks for listening and the praise.
As I wrote in my reply to floyd I used snippets from them all as samples, only a few ran continuously. I just sorta got carried away grin

Thanks Peter,
You mentioned the 2 parts that were time consuming, going through the harmonica RT to get the rhythm right drove me mad!
I practice singing every song I do as I write them in BIAB so I soon noticed the bits that needed to be worked on. The hard part with the words was not tripping up on them.

Thanks for listening

Train surfing cetainly beats the British sport of folding neatly one's copy of the Financial Times, looking at one's watch and tutting when the train is yet again delayed because of the "wrong type of rain" grin

glad you enjoyed

Hi Alyn,

I really like what you've done with Peter's poem. It's excellent. The phrase 'hiphip alla gibson' springs to mind smile Hmm... that looks good in the instruction area above the stave. There's nothing like a bit of Italian music terminology to add a touch of class...



Seriously, though, you and Joanne have done a really awesome job with this audio and video. Top notch all the way!

All the best,
Noel

Alyn - I don't think you used enough RealTracks... nice job on the vocal! All mixed together well...

The BGVs were cool!

Cool stuff.

Yeah, I'm down with floyd...that paucity of tracks is really notable smile

Y'all have fertile imaginations that go waaaaaaay beyond my more pedestrian approach to writing.

Other than the aforementioned virtual lack of RT's we most enjoyed this entire production
including the video. Again, as mr jane alluded to .... dark and scary.

Assuredly interesting and enjoyable!

The music transports that "rhythmic danger" very well.
Very interesting arrangement. Liked the vocals and the background vocals.

Thanks Guenter,
I spent a lot of time trying to achieve that train rhythm; wasn't too happy with the result ,but gald it worked

Cheers Rob,

Not too sure what you mean by Trex. I assume you mean Marc Bolan not the largest land carnivore of all time, so I take that as a compliment, Thanks grin

I did wonder if there were enough RTs crazy I didn't realise how few many I had actually used.

So glad you-all enjoyed this, wouldn't this forum be so boring if we all posted similar style songs,
And it certainly shows what a great program BIAB can be.

Thanks from Joanne, Peter and me for the nice comments

Well now ...

That was really different, but in a good way. That repetitive rhythm was like a "drone of death" in my ears, which is very effective for the song. Loved the video ... pretty scare what they do!

And holy smokes ... that's a mouthful of words! Very creative and well-done ... great listen! Congrats to all three of you!

Thanks Al,

I tried to make the rhythm a bit edgy so and glad it worked.
Yup, those words brought back the memories of my speech impediment when I was a kid and proved I had definitely overcome that p-problem grin

All the best
