Here's a link to a YouTube video I did to accompany the audio...

Click here or cut and paste the following link in a new window in your web browser...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQiun-kcFiI&feature=youtu.be

These days, especially in the world of karaoke, you see recordings done "in the style" of this artist and that. This song was actually WRITTEN in the style of legendary singer / songwriter Skip Ewing. Now I'm not saying I'm the next Skip Ewing but his style of writing was definitely a big influence on this song.

BIAB did all the audio. All I did was sing and added a bit of BIAB reverb cut back to about 25%

Here's the BIAB details on the tracks...

Key=G , Tempo 86, Length (m:s)=3:06
Style is _CMPFBF3.STY (2 Acoustic Guitar w/ Bass Ballad)

RealTracks in style: ~712:Bass, Acoustic, Bossa Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 2334:String Quartet, Rhythm PopChamber Ev 085 (used beginning at verse to 'til end)
RealTracks in style: ~~365:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~~362:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 2038:Guitar, Resonator, Soloist CountryRob Ev 085 (used for solo fills throughout on solo track)

I used PowerDirector 12 to put together the video utilizing a standard and common built-in transition effect

Thank you for taking the time to listen to my tune. I appreciate any and all feedback!

Kevin,

If you are going to emulate a writer, there are few better than Skip. He has a knack with a story line, writes solid lyrics and stunningly beautiful melodies...

It would be nice if you could post your lyrics along with everything else here. I had some difficulty catching some of them (got 'em after 3 listens) and they are well worth hearing. A very interesting story line and some solid writing.

Your production and mix suit the song nicely. The vocal is a bit "buried" at times (thus my difficulty). Not sure what would be best to help that.. perhaps taking some lows (eq) out and a slight boost in the mid-high range...

A very good first post. WELCOME to the best forum on the web...

Looking forward to more.

floyd

Thank you for the great feedback! Being a not-so-confident vocalist I guess I tend to not push the vocals out in front as much as I should but I'll have to try the trick with the EQ to see what that does and how it works. I did do a small step-stone up on the top three bands of BIAB's 10-band graphic IQ but I need to get a bit more adventuresome I see!

Thank you again!

Enjoyed that Rutherford. I love gentle wistful story songs and think your voice is great for it. Liked the backing too especially the resonator. Cheers.

Very cool song and video. To sort of confirm what Floyd said, I got the same feeling. I just did not know how to explain it like Floyd. I am quickly learning to embrace his comments if I want to make my songs sound better. I want to encourage you to do the same. Even if you choose to leave it entirely alone, the song is great!

Rutherford, this is an excellent first post. I do agree with Floyd about the vocals however I do respectfully disagree with your not to push your vocals out front statement. You should! You have a super voice!

This is an excellent mix. Your vocals are good! Your lyrics are outstanding!

I'm looking forward to hearing more from you.

Thank you to everyone for the WONDERFUL feedback! Whether it be music, videos, or anything in life, if you stop learning you stop growing. So I am going to take all your constructive feedback and put it to good use, adding it to the palette that is me.
