Pat wanted a duet. Janice Merritt and floyd jane.
So I dug through some old stuff and found something that I thought might work.
It sorta does - use your imagination a bit.
The original thought was to have this be a true duet. With Janice and I swapping lines
or each taking a verse. But that didn't work out. There is too much range to the melody
so the key is wrong for one or the other. So we worked around that
the best way that we could - to make it as "duet-like" as possible.
The song "evolved" to have a bit of percussion (I had never recorded it before).
I have never really "been through" the RealTrack drum kits.
The Nashville kits usually do what I need - and usually, the Even8 one, at that.
I wanted a snap-snap....snap on this so I had to "go looking" for it.
In doing that, I came across the Salsa kits - not quite what I was looking for, but kinda cool...
The Nashville Skip kit had a nice subtle feel for the 1st verse, so I grabbed that, too.
I auditioned EVERY kit. For some reason, I skipped over the Calypso.
When I finally tried it (last), it was, of course, what I had been looking for. IF I COULD GET TO YOU
