floyd, The first thing that hit me is the sound of the drums and the overall clarity of the mix. The next thing is the modulations as mentioned by Herb. Great stops! The talking blues feel really adds to the story. It's like you're sitting next to me at the bar swapping lies and tall tales. Superb! Loved it! Tom

Someone throws down the gauntlet, and you turn into yet another perfect song.

Plus, you turn it up a couple notches more with the spoken word bit.

I've been schooled by fj again - and I love it. laugh

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

Absolutely sensational Floyd, this is waaaay-up-there.

The contrasts between spoken verse and singing really give this marvelous dimension.

And everything is all wrapped up in a very impressive set of lyrics, and topped off with outstanding guitar work.

This is a best seller for sure.

Wow Floyd this is so different than your other tunes. There were so many part of the production that were unique. Well done. Super vocal and very creative lyrics. And the backtrack was superb...

Smokin' HOT FJ!
Super lyrics, arrangement, vocal, production....you name it...

(If I was listening with you in person I'd be doing the Wayne's World "we're not worthy" salute after hearing this one. LOL!)

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


Greg - thanks for such a nice review. I especially appreciate that you made note of the lyric...

Sheeesh, you put a song up and within no time all the entire superlative bucket has been unloaded on you.

Pick a comment, any comment, from the above and we agree. The spoken word, the modulations, the drums, the write all deserve the praise.

"a careful collection of contradictions"

That is a great line and for us it can describe the write. It's obviously good ole boy leaning but with some very literate twists throughout, e.g., ain't no ordinary jane, I've been graced, and more.

mr jane, this one is definitely not an ordinary mr jane.

For anybody that hasn't yet...turn this puppy up to 11 and listen to how it all holds together so well.

Masterful!

Hello, floyd

Great track! Catchy song!
It is wonderful to organize the songs that come back and forth between D major key and E major key.
As many others said, the combination of the spoken parts and the sung parts are really nice.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

This is a bar of excellence that few, if any of us, will be able to approach.

BTW, we liked it!

Alan & DI


smile - Thanks, y'all... what more could I ask for?...

Throw a Telecaster in there too and turn it up to 12.


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




Thanks for all of that, C!... If I can get a "really, really catchy" out of you, then I've done my job!...

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.
