Hi, friends !

I do apologize for not having
been able to follow up on the site
too often ! My other commitments
have just overwhelmed me.

I did also experience something
I haven´t done before i.e. I just
lost myself and my voice ! I wrote
some 5 pieces and could not finalize
not one of them as I probably wrote
them too complicated or I just could
not produce the voices needed for them.

So, I thought I had to make it somewhat easier
and so I wrote this one but even this one had
to be adjusted at least three times (downward)
Maybe this has to do with age ?

In any case, here is FINAL RIDE
based on the style: CTRYPOP.STY
Instros: Bass: 1208, Guitar 1: 405, Drumes = Realdrums = Nashville
Even 8/5 Hihat, ride, Pedal Steel: 603, Guitar2: 629
Synthpad: 1840

AND ON BOX:

Recorded with Mixcraft 7 Pro and stagg Mic on
my Lenovo Laptop.

Here are the lyrics:

FINAL RIDE (MUSIC & LYRICS BY NORMAN WIBE)

Hi, guys, weather´s so nice, and the surf´s on the rise
grab your boards, run to the oceanside
for a final ride
just can´t hide, the tears in my eyes

It´s been so great, you know that everything nice, has to come to an end
yes we´ll have to leave, that´ll be our impending fate
so don´t, be late
don´t be late for the final ”bend”

Let´s go surfin´, a final time, surf right soon, mornin´till noon
it´s been a great great boon, yeah it´s been a great great boon
Oh what fun we´ve had to ride those waves in the sun,
in that hot ,shinin´sun, gettin all that copper bronze tan
copper bronze tan

You know we´ve been right here, yes we´ve been right here, all summer long
and now we´re finally gettin´, rid of the foam
home, sweet home
time to leave this bay, singin´ along

Let´s go surfin´, a final time , surf right soon, mornin´till noon it´s been a great great boon, yeah it´s been a great great boon
Oh what fun we´ve had to ride those waves in the sun,
in that hot shinin´sun, gettin all that copper bronze tan
copper bronze tan

Sorry to say, but season´s finally over, for the rest of the year
it leaves us dreamin´, dreamin´ for another return
turn, til´next turn
we´ll have to live, with all those sweet, mem´ries to share
we´ll have to live, with all those sweet, mem´ries to share

Cheers
Dani

Dani,

Nice song - I enjoyed the end of summer lyrics.
Your voice sounds fine and those trademark harmonies are smooth. Your vocal range is much greater than most of us,so you have a ways to go before you meet us in the middle!

Hey Dani,

It's great to see you back posting again. The surfin', summer fun lyrics definitely get the thumbs up from me.

I agree with Robert. There's nothing wrong with your voice. As far as I could tell, your vocal cords sounded just as good as they always do.

I enjoyed my listen!

All the best,
Noel

Another great delivery Dani.

You've captured the Surfin' style once again, and it was interesting to hear the pedal steel sitting nicely throughout the mix.

Nothing wrong with the vocal delivery either!

Thanks for another Dani classic.

Indeed once again you are the surfing master of the forum!
Trademark vocals and harmonies as usual. Good work!

Nice one Dani!! Fresh off your crooning Mel Torme to your Brian Wilson beach boy harmony sound. This is great. Love the melancholy of the "final ride". Great feel, and great vocals!! Take care. Greg

Hi, Floyd !


...and very many thanks for
your most kind words !
I discovered that I was
writing too complicated tunes
and had problems singing
them so I had to start from
scratch and write something
easier to sing (as I thought
before ! started to sing the
background) !!1

Cheers
Dani

Your vocals sound great to me!

This is a very smooth and easy going surf song. I liked everything about this one.

Two thumbs up

Hang ten my friend!

Hi, Rob !:))


I feel honoured for your
most kind words. You know that
there are most probably many
guys and guyesses that could do
these surf tunes much better than me
I just happened to among the first
to test it

Rob, thank you for your kind comments !

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Greg !:))


I´m so glad you liked
the tune ! It was the
third version as all the
other versions crashed !

I was dubious if I ever
would manage to do those
backing vocals but I did
(on the edge) !

Muchisimas gracias por
tus palabras amables !

Salud !
Dani
