Hey ya'll,

I wrote this feel good song called She's In Love in the tradition of the sixties girl groups - lots of harmony and horns.

Style is _SOL60HS.STY (60s Soul with HornSection[110RS])

RealTracks in style: 1569:Bass, Electric, Soul60sA-B Ev 110
RealTracks in style: 1578:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Soul60sA-B Ev 110
RealTracks in style: 1572:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Soul60sHighA-B Ev 110
RealTracks in style: 2110:Horn Section, Background, R&B Ev16 110
RealDrums in style: Soul60sTamboEv^1-a:HHtSnr, b:BsyBss

And I sprinkled in a few extra horns from the individual horn rt's but not too much.

All comments are welcome. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi Josie,

Well done! I enjoyed it. I liked the key change, too, and the lift in energy it brought with it.

All the best,
Noel

Josie, that's absolutely wonderful!

You've captured the feel of the era perfectly and the harmony vocals were just sublime - please post and tell us how you recorded them. I really enjoyed listening to this one - three times so far!

ROG.

Nice work, Josie... Carole King would be proud!

As above, harmonies were very fine, and I especially liked your tasteful use of the horns... very convincing.

ROG,

Thank you. You made my day with what you said and listening three times!

I recorded the harmony tracks with my trusty old SM58. The tracks are a combination of live and harmonizer. My TCH doesn't work for every song but it's nice when it fits. The kids you teach who can already sing harmony would have a blast with one.


Brad,

Carole is my hero - heroine - heroess....well I wanted to be her when I grew up. Never quite boarded that boat but I have a good time anyway. And thank you for the horns comment.

I appreciate it.

I like the song a lot! It really catches the '60s feeling that you were aiming for. It's a fun song to listen to.

I'm not thrilled with the mix, though - it doesn't seem to have the sort of energy that I associated with the genre, and loses a lot of "oomph" at the modulation - exactly where it should be building excitement again. At 2:12 (at the modulation) you can hear the horns being dialed down.

I was listening to a number of other songs (like this and this), and it's sort of surprising how sparse those arrangements are. I think you'd get a more effective mix if you followed the model of the 60s songs, bringing the drums and horns more forward, but creating a lot more space in the arrangement.

Or leave it exactly as it is.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

groovy baby or what ever we said in the '60's,it is too early for a "far out man".
totally enjoyable.

I like the "with me" at the end ... good idea.

Right from the first beat, I knew I'd like it...you have the girl group sound down perfectly!
What I liked most about it is the simplicity of the vocal lines...allows your beautiful harmonies to really shine. And the little modulation in there was very nice...it came a bit unexpectedly, so it was a nice surprise!

Hey Josie,

Let me just say I really like this one!

Love the acoustic guitar on the right... and then the electric on the left in the chorus, just couldn't work any better than it is!

Great vocals, wonderful mix!

Maybe it's just me, but I'm not really hearing the horns, but it doesn't matter 'cause what I am hearing I really like!

Nice Job.

Greg

You nailed the 60's vibe there Josie, well done. Reminded me of the girl groups back then on black and white tv. Very nice.

Josie,

As always, good job! (Not that I am old enough to be familiar with this genre!)

Actually, one of the first bands I played in was a 50's & 60's girl band. (No, I wasn't one of the girls! - I played in it to be around the girls!) Good times.

You did a good job of capturing the feel of the genre!

Steve
