Dear Forum Friends,
Has anyone ever called you “so serious”? I used to hear it all the time. It was like fingernails on the chalkboard to me. I guess I’m still pretty serious but I do let loose for just a little while as the song suggests.
This past winter I upgraded to the BIAB UltraPack and got some great Dixieland RealTracks. How can you not smile listening to that kind of music? So enjoy and find your inner-child.
Here are the wonderful RT (thanks PG).

(I'll post to soundcloud soon)

It's been a while since we heard this genre. What a nice refresher! We're still smiling! Your vocal is terrific on this. Also loved the message in the lyric. I'm (Alan) serious enough to take carer of my responsibilities. After that ... I just try to have fun.

A fun and and entertaining listen. Thanks!

Alan & Di

PS: loved the background laughing near the end!

Fun listen! We'v had a blast playing around with those RT's.

You put them to good use supporting the vocal. Wrapped it
up in a nice mix also.

Hi SD,

a fun listen. Like all those little trifles you worked into your mix. I'm sure it was also fun making it.

Thanks. Glad you liked it.

Al & Di,
Thanks. This is my second song in the Dixieland genre. It's so much fun.

Thanks. The RTs are so much better than the equivalent midi patches.

Thanks. The sound effects were really fun.

Glad you liked it.

Thanks. It was really fun doing this one.

Glad you liked it. Thanks for listening.

Thanks for your comments. I took the Berklee Music Production course a while back and learned a lot. I guess it's helping.
Take care.

Hi SD,

Very nice angle for a song, very enjoyable by the way.
About the 'serious' part.... we both have been called "too serious" back in our days, but we've loosened up for many years now!
Song is very well done.
