Mr. Snyder implied that my last one was a bit somber and made a request...

Perhaps a bit over-the-top... but there are elements worth exploring...

A bit of "carousin' with the boys", drinkin' an' hollerin'. Likely at night.
A bit of the kissin'-the-girls thing... though in a limited manner...
Since Brent handles the leads, I'd venture to say that was a Telecaster...

This will give you a picture of...


UNCOMMON GRACE

i'm shootin' pool and having some beers with the guys
and my phone rings, i tell 'em that was grace, i gotta go
they start whoopin' it up 'bout how i'm wrapped 'round her finger
some whipped boy-toy led by the nose
fellas, some things are hard to explain
grace ain't no ordinary jane
   
   a careful collection of contradictions
   nothing sits right, nothing out of place
   not even trying, she's the center of attention
   that little girl grin, that movie star face
   that's the picture of uncommon grace

well that took 'em back a bit they didn't know quite what to say
room got kinda quiet as i headed toward the door
i hear charlie say "man, she must be something"
i say "you never seen the likes of her before"
a tornado. a goddess. a full-out addiction.
grace simply defies description
   
   a t-shirt and pearls, worn tony lama's
   hears her own drummer, sets her own pace
   stubborn like her daddy, a beauty like her mama
   rifle in the window rack just in case
   that's the picture of uncommon grace

she's standing in the hall when i walk through the door
that grin on her face, her robe on the floor
   
   a quiet storm, giving, demanding
   temp tattoos beneath tattered lace
   gives her heart with wild adandon
   any man would die for just one taste
   that's the picture of uncommon grace
   damn good picture of my girlfriend grace

i've been graced.

Hi Floyd.

A spoken verse! Never thought I'd hear that from you, but doesn't it work well. Man, I just wish I could do that accent.

Hey what a picture you've painted here. Sounds like a nice girl. I thought at first you were going for the old joke - he walked into the room with easy grace...

Superb track which rocks along nicely. Great vocals and harmony and absolutely no complaints about the solo this time!

Good LOUD.

Loved the whole thing.

ROG.

Awesome!!!

Now that's what I'm talking about!!

smile

Loved every bit of this, especially the drum production, for example, the little flourish of a two thump at the very end, and the drums rolls in the middle.

How did you do that???? I know they are samples, but what's the technique?

Great song!!

What a tune, Floyd! Had me groovin' in my seat smile Nothing like a good old country tune! Extremely catchy, extremely well mixed - and that guitar solo at 1:30 is wicked!

Thanks so much for sharing, you should be proud of this!

Just wonderfully infectious.

I really like the combination of the spoken versus the non. I think it was the perfect touch for this song. I feel it presents it more overtly as a story. Loved it.

My favorite (only by a sliver) of three beautifully crafted choruses!! This is a top-notch write.....clever, fun, and catchy as heck. EVERYTHING works perfectly.

Not a word that could be better
Not a note out of place
That's the picture of UNCOMMON GRACE

Uncommonly excellent Floyd!! Take care. Greg

Floyd,

This is great - love the word play and the mix of talking/singing... Excellent production as usual and a strong performance.

Loved it!

Yeah! Loved the spoken word parts, really worked well. Top notch from the beginning right to that cool little B3 lick to end the song.

Excellent!

Thanks, ROG. You know I am always thinking of you when I'm setting that lead in the mix... smile

Yes, David likes this, and so do we!
We especially like the transition to the chorus ( like I commented on SoundCloud).
Nice work once again!

hey Floyd,

Di and I were wondering why this isn't on the radio ... then it dawned on us - it's too damned good! This sounds professional as anything out there. Great lyric, backing tracks and a splendid vocal performance. If it gets any better than this, we'd have to call it something besides a song. This is a bar of excellence that few, if any of us, will be able to approach.

BTW, we liked it!

Alan & DI

Well FJ, just like every one of your songs, this is my favorite wink I hope that doesn't water down my comments!

Anyway, this made me laugh...

Just once I wish DS could spit out what he's trying to say. It's always soooo vague what he's lookin' for wink

I have to admit, when I saw the title this was NOT what I was expecting. I may have been more along the lines of what DS was saying.

Anyway, this song is so cool. The semi-spoken part is fun, and that chorus! LOVE IT! It's catchy! Really, really catchy. I would be you walked around with it stuck in your head when you weren't working on it?

As far as production, I feel that may have been the tightest I've heard from you. I mean, it LINES up! I felt every instrument fit exactly where it should be.

Loved the grove. Love the changed between sections. Just a lot to keep the listener interested!

It's not my name, but you had me at "Mr. Snyder" wink

Cool stuff....

Lots of comments on the spoken verses.... I didn't see anything on the mods/de-mods throughout. I thought that was an excellent idea.

Well done.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
