Hi Dani, thanks for listening. On the BIAB chart, each bar containing the Linda lyric reads (d d6) followed in the next bar by (d d6 dmaj7). Good ear.

I was attempting to duplicate as closely as possible the guitar riff from the original recording and on occasion in the 2nd bar, to do so, I reversed the 2nd bar d6, dmaj7 to force BIAB to track the riff more accurately.

Regards,

Charlie

Charlie - nice "first attempt". The instrumentation is well done - good mix. The lead vocal is a bit "up front" - you might want to have that sit back into the mix just a little more. A little more reverb will sometimes accomplish that - or a couple of dB less volume (or both). The vocal is nicely done - and the harmonies are terrific.

Welcome aboard!

Hi Charlie,

nice first post.
I like the harmonies.
I can only support Floyd on the mix.
Enjoyable listen though.

Hi Charlie,

It's great to see you posting in Users Showcase.

"The groove you have happening in "Linda" is very infectious. It's the style of beat/rhythm that really appeals to me and that I feel very comfortable with.

I found this very easy to listen and it sounded really good to my ears.

It was a pleasure to sit back and to be entertained!
Noel

nice first song. Looks like you'll be "one to watch" for new stuff.

I agree with the comments by Floyd on the vox not setting in the mix properly. Skills get better, the more you work and mix.

Every now and then I like to go back to some of the old stuff I was writing around that same time period..... I start working them up, and then generally change my mind....

I enjoyed that song.

Thanks to all for the reviews and comments. Constructive criticism is always welcome. I apologize for the poor vocal singing and mix on this one. I rushed through everything and posted without critical review of the song as I allowed my focus to be more on learning the BIAB song structure process & experimenting with styles, and generating tracks, then setting up and learning how to get a song from home computer to Soundcloud to here. I really appreciate all of your kind comments and encouragement.

Regards to all,

Charlie

Very nice song. I like the vocals - a little processing will bring out some depth to your voice.

Charlie,

Welcome to the forum! Nice first submission! I agree with the comments on the mix, but this is a nice song, a great start with Band In A Box.

Looking forward to hearing more.

Steve

I agree that the instrumentation and RT's are just right to my earls, smooth, well mixed. I also have to be careful about having vocals too up front:) This is a sweet song and a terrific submission. Keep them coming.

+1 to what they all said Charlie. If you don't have it yet check out the trial demo for Ozone from Izotope.

Thanks for you comments and recommendation. Ozone must be a good program, it is the same one recommended to me by my brother recently. I took the opportunity to visit your Soundcloud site and I really love your vocals and production. I especially enjoyed I Can't Be Your Friend and She's In Love. I look forward to hearing more from you.

Thanks Greg for your comments. I was not the lead vocalist on the original recording and having heard both versions, the lead and backup leave a lot to be desired with my attempt at doing both so I have nowhere to go from here but up. LOL I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's exciting to get comments from folks who I've been listening to and admiring their work for months.
