J&B, beautiful song! The new verse fits like a glove! Janice's vocal is so pleasant to listen to and it carries the song so well that there is no need for any backing vocal accompaniment! Thanks, Torrey

Hi there J&B.

A faultless backing track and mix, which serves as the perfect platform for Janice
to leave me spell-bound as usual.

What else is there to say?

J&B,

Your lyrical changes give the song a more uplifting feel (particularly liked the change from "wearsome" to "wondrous land").
Lovely crystal clear mix ... and then there`s Janice singing the tune to make us forget anyone else ever did!

Janice & Bud

Lovely. Simple but extremely effective backing - sounds crisp and professional and compliments Janice's performance. Liked the lyrical touches the dial twiddling and of course the vocal - could almost hear a choir singing along.

Janice & Bud...

The clarity in this is stunning. Each instrument and vocal sitting perfectly against each other. At any one time the ears hear the bass, the mandolin, the acoustic guitar "doing their thing" AND perfectly supporting the vocal.

And what a gorgeous vocal it is. One of the best recorded vocals that has ever been posted here. I think.

Your re-write/addition - excellent.

Y'all are at the top of your game. Lucky us to be able to share that...

Gillian Welch, Allison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, Janice Merritt....

Yep, she belongs right there with the greats.....

Stunning recording.

Bud, the stars aligned when they placed Janice's talent in your production hands. I don't think its the software Bud. You have what it takes hands down. (pun intended) ;=)

You don't often hear this specific type song end using a fade out but it works and adds that bit of modern and unique personal touch to the song to make it your own.

Superb on every level.

Charlie

We appreciate that Rog! Those three backing tracks proved to be more of a challenge than I anticipated. Glad they worked for you.

J&B, this is another in a long line of great vocals. The mix is crystal clear and the instruments are placed perfectly. The added verse is just right. Absolutely top shelf from the song picked to the finished product. Tom

Thanks for checking out the changes Robert. That was most thoughtful of you. And we’re delighted that you liked them. Thanks for mentioning the mix and Janice’s vocal. She was very happy when reading it.

Thanks Peter. Sometimes less is indeed more...but I’m never sure so your comments are very supportive of the effort.

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
