A song that's been on the back burner for a few years...just finished a few days ago.

One day while I was still at work, a rain storm rapidly approached. My sweetie rushed out to cover our bass boat just in time. Our friend and neighbor remarked on her quick action, which provided the spark for this country sounding tune.

https://soundcloud.com/blushasta-music/quite-a-woman

QUITE A WOMAN

Each and every morning I wake up in happiness
Can't believe she loves me it's chemistry I guess
Some kind of chain reaction where two lovin' hearts ignite
All I really know is that she's quite

Chorus

'Cause she can silence her class with just one look
Not afraid to bait her own hook
When she borrows the truck she fills the tank
Covers the boat if it looks like rain
She can sew the wings on a butterfly
Talk them apples right into the pie
That's right she's quite a woman

I could sing about those emerald eyes and ruby lips
Sexy talk sexy walk the way she swings those hips
Makes me thank my lucky stars I'm her Mr. Right
But, all I'm gonna' say is that she's quite

Repeat Chorus

Bridge

Now I don't like to sound just like
An old worn out cliché
But, I've been living on cloud nine
Since our wedding day

Repeat Chorus

Nice retro sounding old style country tune.

You have some really cool lyrical phrases in there too... sew the wings on a butterfly.... talk those apples right into a pie.... Love it!!!!

nice writing.


So... on the solo, it loses it's groove. Did you use a dobro straight pattern instead of a dobro swing? It sounds like the lead is straight and the rest of the band's swinging. Gotta watch the details.

Thank you all for listening and for saying those nice things. I'm a songwriter first, I guess, so I'm ecstatic that you like the song!

As far as performing the song and recording it, I'm always in a rush, trying to improve there, but it's a challenge:) Thanks again.

Man, I can't get away with anything around here! Just kidding.

First, I value your critiques and I'm thrilled you like the song, Herb, thank you.

On the recording.... Yeah. The sw solos I found were so Texas/Western Swing, not at all what I was after. But, the ev solos had all the cool riffs and the twang I wanted. I think my best option on this is to work out my own guitar lead and play that. As you noted, I went with some ev Brent guitar and some ev resonator to create an instrumental which is a compromise, and prolly not a real good one. The vocal could be better too. This one is a one-take I recorded to edit the RT's, kept it, and then used Nectar 2 for some harmonies. I'm planning to use Melodyne on my next projects, have been watching the tutorials, and I have some songbird friends who are going to sing harmonies on some songs too.

Thanks again for taking the time, Herb.

Scott

Scott,

A VERY solid write! Interesting and original...

Good production. Nice balance to everything (nice drums!).
Nice vocal...

Get those solos right... once again, this is too good to have anything "not quite what it should be"....

Very enjoyable.

I'm with fj on this....the tune is well worth playing around some more with the solos. The lyric is way way too good not to. And the mix is spot on. Hey, that's the best use of an RT harp that I've heard yet!


It's really an experiential thang regarding mixing sw and ev RT's. I frequently put a swing bass on our bluegrass compositions and although the BG tracks are ev it works fine. For years I'd play a swingish walking bass with our BG band and get away with it -- or at least I think I did smile I've mixed a few sw and ev RTs other than just BG and, in general, I can feel them fighting each other or at best gently tugging -- which may work.

Scott, Some great lines in this one. I may be in the minority here but I didn't like the way the verses were left hanging on the word quite. The rest of the write is very solid. The drums are sounding good. The vocal is good. The mix is good, but as others have said the solos need work. You are most definitely heading in the right direction. Keep writing! Tom

real nice song and excellent performance. Good back story and lyrics, too. I am not sure if I would have noticed the solo stuff if others hadn't mentioned it above, but I guess they are right (ha, ha). Do the solos yourself if you can (or get someone else to do it).

Mighty fine line listen. You know I gotta like it since it has the word "chemistry" in there!

Love the lilting bounce of this tune and the Tom T. Hall-like lyrics. Nice clean-sounding arrangement, and a perfect vocal.
"Talk them apples right into the pie" indeed! That's a video I'd like to see.
Thanks for posting this one.

Nice tribute to the one that sticks by us through thick and thin.

"I could sing about those emerald eyes and ruby lips
Sexy talk sexy walk the way she swings those hips."


Easy big fella stick to the script.

Scott,

Some cool lines in there, good melody and strong vocal. I also like the arrangement. The solo probably could fit tighter.

I like your song a lot.
