Well sung, fun lyrics, stellar arrangement. Having heard some of your songs, I'm no longer surprised by how good your song are, but I am continually impressed with what do.

In the worthless trivia category, the reason for 12 in the Imperial system is to avoid having to deal with fractions. That is, 12 can be evenly divided by 2, 3, 4 and 6. When you're building stuff, you don't want rounding errors to cause problems, so dealing with integers is just simpler. Same logic with a 12 hour clock, and 360 degrees. Only with degrees, you basically get to divide by 5 without a fractional result as well. I'm all for avoiding fractions.

Earl, Beneath the green arrow that Videotrack points to, there's a button called "Solo". That isolates the drums so that all you hear will be the drums. Regards, Noel P.S. Thanks for the graphics, Trev! my latest song: Accidental Lovers

Power chords also sound great sustained, so you might consider going through your song and changing all the chords to held power chords (i.e.change chords from something like C to C5...) and render out only the guitar track using an electric guitar. You can then layer held strums these behind "normal" electric guitar chords, so you get more grit without having to put them up front in the mix.

I've got a lot of Indiginus instruments, and love them all. They're fun to play, and sound great. Unlike some VSTis I've bought, they really do sound exactly as they do in the demos. The only reason I don't have The Steel is because I don't have a much call for it the music I make, and BiaB has some really excellent steel guitars. But it's up there on my "To Get" list. Keep in mind that you'll need the full version of Kontakt to play this, or you'll be limited to 15 minute interval

As Trev said earlier, we went metric in the 1970s, but we still use a lot of "descriptive" terminology, such as "He's very tall, well over six feet" Or "the surf was big today ... well over 10 foot waves."

Thank you, Tangmo!!! I appreciate your advice. I'll try the compression when I go to RB. You know, I automatically default to 7th chords, dominants and minors, probably because of the blues influence. I can try the power chords; that might make a big difference. Thanks for that idea!

I heard what you said about keeping the tone like you want. Here's your solution. REAL STRAT. I've heard folks who were using this and as a guitarist it was really difficult

Not your issue as long as the promoter or venue is licensed with the PRO or the song’ publisher.

Ember, Mario, Marty and Noel...my sincere thanks to all of you for your individual comments...I did a concert two years ago celebrating 40 years as a songwriter and my son and daughter did a rendition of this song with me that night and it was one of my favorite moments of the evening...I love the song and am so glad you enjoyed it...this song literally would not exist without the inspiration I got from BiaB and the Lord (of coarse)...Dan

Harv, did you live then where you live now? I remember back in 1987 I crossed the border from Sarnia into that state up north because I needed strings and generic stuff like that and the first real city was Port Huron. I went to some music store somewhere in that area but I don't know if it was Port Huron or further down into Marysville. I remember that day because I forgot my work visa and had a HUGE problem with the border. There was a bar in Port Huron that was the hot spot on Sunday night an

We are kinda in the same boat. I don't have a rock voice either (at least not unless it's more southern). In the "style-picker", you can toggle by genre and locate all the styles you have under "heavy rock". That's likely to be your best starting place for finding something in the feel and tempo. Beyond that, if you want to use other guitars added to (or replacing) guitars in the style, you have a couple of obvious options. 1. If you use a DAW and common DAW effects, yo
