I concur with Janne : your beautiful songs and ever positive contributions are a highlight of this forum.

Robert


Robert,

I appreciate the visit! Thank you for listening and for commenting. I always find it very valuable how others hear my songs because I lose mixing objectivity very early in the process. I'm glad to read that it 'worked' for you.

All the best,
Noel

Melodically and Lyrically this is just brilliant.

Trev


Trev,

Thank you! Without a doubt, and as I'm sure you've picked up from forum comments over the years, Alan and Di are remarkable people. This song would never have come into being if it wasn't for them.

I appreciate your continued support and I join in with you wishing everyone good health and happiness smile

Best wishes,
Noel

Thanks for visiting the thread, Ember, and having a listen to my song. I agree, it's a great forum and it seems to get better and better as time passes. PG Music did well when they created this little bit of the web smile

Best regards,
Noel

Scott,

Thank you for the visit. It's always good to see you and read what you think about my songs. I'm always cautious when it comes to working with guitars because my instrument is piano and guitars are a bit harder for me to mix. That's why I appreciate your comments. Your expertise is the guitar so, if my songs work for you, that's always a hopeful sign smile

All the best,
Noel

Di and I are both so appreciative of this. It literally brought tears to our eyes. We can't thank you enough for rendering such a beautiful song that came as an inspiration from one of our forum posts. It sounds like Noel Adams - no one else. And that makes us very happy. That Adams guy is pretty danged good, you know!

we all have our challenges in life and sometimes get a burnt burger when we were expecting a steak. Every day is a struggle for her - and sometimes me - but we have a closet full of tenacity. I miss those days when she and I would spend hours in front of that camera and sing our silly butts off. And she's always been gorgeous to me.

Again, a personal and very heartfelt thanks for this masterpiece. God bless, my friend. And we send our love and well wishes for others on this forum who have to face uphill battles of their own.

Alan & Di

Alan and Di,

There are no two ways about it. You both are amazing! Thank you for the encouragement. It was absolutely my pleasure to be able to write this.

Always best wishes and lots of good thoughts,
Noel

It's always good to see a new song posted by you and I enjoy and appreciate the stories behind the inspiration. You are always so generous with your comments and time. You make this community all the more engaging and warm.


Hi Lawrence,

I apologise that it's taken me so long to reply to you. It seems that the journey that took me away from the forum a little while back is still not over and it required me to be absent again for a bit. That's life, though.

Thank you for taking the time to visit Soundcloud and have a listen. I always appreciate reading what you have to say. Now I just need to learn to be as creative as you!

Thanks again,
Noel

A lovely write. I especially like the "knock knock knock" - most folks would not think to do that. The melody is extraordinary - going places that surprised me at ever turn.

The production is super. Those acoustics sound SO good. Excellent mix - everything sits well. A delightfully "relaxed" vocal. So nice!

Hey floyd,

Thanks for dropping in! It's always great to see you smile I'm glad you picked up on the 'knock knock knock'. I was trying to think of some way to make the act of knocking on a door an aural experience by using words. This seemed to do the job (for me at least).

Also, thank you for your thoughts on the mix, etc. Getting guitars 'right' is always a big challenge for me because I'm a keyboard player. These days, I avoid plugins other than Ozone for the final mix and some EQ to reduce bass-related muddiness. The instruments that come from PG Music seem to do the job really well with minimal adjusting.

Hope things are sailing along well for you up there above the equator.

All the best,
Noel

P.S. I'm very mindful that I've let a couple of your songs slip past me. I sincerely apologise for that. I'm planning on tracking them down!

Noel,
There's a touch of the Go Betweens' Robert Forster to your phrasing.
Nice work.

Tom,

Thank you. Your comments started my day in a perfect way. I appreciate that.

I think that I'm discovering that the lesser the number of instruments I have in a mix, the more chance I have of getting it to sound ok! I don't think I could ever adventure into the territory of some of those productions that you and floyd seem to put together so effortlessly... maybe one day.

Thanks again for taking the time.

All the best,
Noel

The lyric, the melody and your vocal have a symbiosis which very few artists can match.

And we often voice our love of productions that work with a small number of tracks. This is a GREAT example of that.

Simply outstanding.

J&B


Hey Janice&Bud,

I appreciate your visit to the thread and your comments. Thank you for listening!

I'm just about to head off for my first day of teaching for the year and reading through your thoughts once more this morning has given me the shot of enthusiasm I needed! I'm really, really grateful for that smile

All the best to you both!
Noel

This is incredible, Noel smile The way this is presented is so interesting to me. It definitely has a unique quality to it I can’t put my finger on. And by the way - your vocal performance here is unreal! Overall it is just a well executed and well written tune.


Great work - you should be proud of this! Thanks for sharing smile

I think this tune is a little short.
I thought that it would be nice to repeat the bridge and the last clause after adding an interlude.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hi Shigeki Adachi,

It's always good to see you! I'm glad you had a chance to visit and to have a listen. I appreciate your comments. Also, thanks for your thoughts on lengthening the song. I haven't tried those yet but I will get around to it smile

All the best,
Noel
