ROG - thanks again for the discussion (I've been mixing with phone for some time now - checking the final mixes on external speakers...)

Tommy - thanks for the listen.

Mike - appreciate you stopping by for a listen and a comment - I know this is not your usual "cup of tea"...

Robert - thanks for that. Brooks and Dunn were not necessarily a direct influence - but my writing style developed through the time period that they were at their peak - it was more a mix of everything that was on Country radio during that period... Garth, Alan, Clint, Vince, etc, etc...

Danny - thanks. one of the nice things about this place - we all seem to have come from the same time warp....

I'm beyond my budget in superlatives to describe your work, Floyd. "Perfection" comes to mind immediately but even that seems to fall short. I like everything about this'n. Just keep 'em comin'.

Phone on the wall? I'm so old I remember the candlestick phone on the hall table!

The overall excellence and consistency of your arrangements and productions amaze me. The arrangements are always spot on for the melody and lyrics. The lyrics are always chock full of wonderful imagery. The vocals "sit" so well in the mix. The instrumentation is never too lush or too sparse.

What's up with this tune? Well, "just another" of the above.

I wanna be able to do this when I grow up.....

I love the song. Great lyrics and vibe. What i am most curious about is how you got the breaks and shots to sound so "real". I cant seem to make that happen. The ending was slick too, anything other than the default mode sounds abrupt on my system.

Anyway, keep up the great work.

Thanks, Dave

Don - you say the nicest things! It's always SO nice to have you drop by! Thank you.

dani - thanks!

Bud - appreciate the comments - as always...

Dave - Thanks for that. The SHOTS generally come out the way I expect without having to do anything to them. The HOLDS are often too loud (guitars particularly) and I lower the level in my DAW when I mixed.
Ending are often tricky. I sometimes create my own - put the (BIAB)end out a couple measures farther than the song goes. Then the last measure (your real one) gets some like this: G C,G... (and then mute the last chord that BIAB puts in at the end).... hope that makes sense...

I just became cognizant, aware, alerted, and stuff of the dial-tone ending. Very clever, my friend. I've listened though many times.

@Dani: Southern Bell is a huge telephone company in the Southern States. Floyd had fun with the wordplay.

Well I learned two things from this thread before I even listened to the song. Firstly what Roger said about the panning being on the reverb rather than on the instruments themselves. Can't wait to try that one out. Secondly I learned from Floyd how to do the ending. Something I have been battling with from the start.
Oh and great song Floyd. So glad I dropped by!

Hi Floyd. I wonder if you would mind explaining how you do your endings a little more? I am confused as to what you do in BIAB and what you do in your DAW. Do you use the “Generate two bar ending” ticked in BIAB and them move those bars out so that you don’t use them? Do you “mute the last chord” in your DAW? Sorry for all the questions….

Joanne,

The ending that I described was not quite accurate... here is what it really looks like:




I've used a 2 measure intro... a 4 measure song... and then a 4 measure "ending".
The last measure (of my ending) is: G,C G... (<< a HOLD)
and then the BIAB ending is out a ways from that (no set distance - just far enough to stay out of the way) - That part would be cut in your DAW.

This is one example for a simple ending that you have control over...

You can download the SGU here if you want
Example: Endings1

Hope that helps...

floyd

I like how you worked in the dial tone ant the end.

Maybe your next song should be "Can You Hear Me Now?"

Floyd,

I almost missed this one. I had a hip replacement 6 weeks ago, and I have been out of circulation for a while, trying to get back on my feet again (literally)! I sure am glad I listened to this one though! As always, excellent job on the vocals, arrangement, and production.

Very clever song, right down to the dial tone at the end! Keep 'em coming!

Steve

Dial tone hell - remember it well.

Enjoyed listening and the way you poked some fun at the angst. +1 to what's already been said concerning the song, vocal, and arrangement.

Floyd, I want to take this opportunity to say that your overall production sound has steadily improved over the past year since you first started posting here using the program and the RT's. You've taken to it like a duck to water. Kudos!
