Floyd,

I submitted it to several prime-movers in Nashville whose names you would immediately recognize.

If nothing more, it will probably sell Band In A Box to several top, first call session players.

Awesome job by you and Janice.

I would LOVE the chance to see that whole hour. You are truly a hookmaster. I have come up with a few but you seem to throw out more ideas than I come up with!!

And you got Janice to do the BGV! Pickles wasn't available?

What a great idea!! And who better than the Godfather of the forum to take on such a task. Floyd's songs are consistently fantastic writes. And, his production is among the elites on the forum in every regard (won't mention any names except to exclude myself-I'm still learning the arts of production and mix). I really hope they release the expanded version. I loved the video but it felt more like a trailer than a full tutorial. I'm anxiously awaiting the full release. Thanks for doing this Floyd!!! Take care. Greg

Ok...I, apparently, have not been on the forums often enough. I just saw this now. This is so cool! Seriously, there needs to be more of this type of thing. If this doesn't inspire people as to what can be done, I'm not sure what will.

FJ, (and Janice) you did a great job! I'm not sure why this is striking me as so different, but I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure if I'm nodding my head in approval or bobbing head to the song that's now stuck in my head. Either way, it's a good thing!

Thanks for doing this!

Hey floyd and Janice,

I found the Youtube clip a really excellent and really well spent 5 minutes and 49 seconds. I enjoyed every step of the journey. Inspiration everywhere!

floyd, as I see it, you are one of the most motivational people who reside on this forum. I have learnt so much from you over the years and with each new song that your pen leaves in it's wake, I continue to gain songwriting insight.

I'm really pleased that you put this video together and I'm looking forward to seeing the 'documentary' version.

Thanks for being so supportive of us all!

Best wishes for a great 2018!
Noel

Thanks Floyd for sharing your method of writing. I always wondered sometimes why I would get stuck sitting writing and then take a walk or drive the car and then the verses would start flowing and I would have to stop and write them down or I'ld forget before I got back home. Do you have to stop the mower?
