Been absent from the forum for a while, again, so slowly catching and starting from the top gave me all the motivation I need. Great write Floyd and your productions keep getting better and better (if that is possible!)
Loved it!

Floyd,

I read with interest about a "clash" in a familiar, straightforward chord sequence. Here's an easy to finger C#m7/B. In the picture below, the circled area is a C#mi triad, with the little finger playing B in the bass. So C#mi/B is C#m7/B with the mi 7 in the bass. Possibly this could be useful. Good tune.

Dean

You give us something comfortable to hang on to even when we journey with you into uncomfortable subjects. That is a particularly good talent to have and easily keeps you in the top 1% of lyricists and storytellers here on the forum.

Enjoyed this one a lot.

Charlie

Charlie - I really enjoyed reading your review. Thanks for that...

Yes, another cool ballad with that typical Floyd signature.
Professional arrangement, very good choice of RTs, and of course beautiful vocal and backing vocals (TC Helicon?)

Rob and Anne-Marie

PS in our opinion nothing wrong with the bass smile

Thanks, y'all! Appreciate that....

Thanks, Richard. I was listening to JB before most of the world had heard of him, so there is bound to be a bit pop up now and then...

What a set of lyrics to start a song!
This is up to your normal professional standard with beautiful singing and an excellent production.

to paraphrase your closing remark
Keep at it laugh

Alyn

Thanks, Alyn. If only all "start lyrics" would come as easily as those did... they sort of just "fell outta somewhere"...(they did come from Buzz's stories - he actually did all that stuff...)

There is a clash with the bass and guitar that at first sounded quite odd, but I have grown to like it as it sets a tension up to dive into the 1 chord for the beginning of the 1st verse. I don't hear that one off note when that bar is repeated during the verse as the guitar plays the chord in a different position. I know this is being really picky. I know you are a perfectionist and I'll bet this didn't go unnoticed. So did you also grow to like way the intro hung on that clashing chord before it resolved? I hope these comments don't detract from the fact that I really love the song and am going back for more. All these words about one little chord choice. What the hell is wrong with me? Another Great Song! Tom

Tom - I mentioned earlier that I have changed the bass line to not walk down to the B, since the fingerpick guitar would not do it - and so clashed because it stayed on the C#... should have done it to start with, but you know how easy it is to "move on"...

When we were in Tulum in '81, the ruins weren't a tourist site (as they are now) - they were "just there" to walk around if you wanted... we camped in pup tents on the cliffs above the beach about a half mile south... there was a small thatched "gazebo" with a grill where some guy would cook whatever fish the locals caught that day - each night for dinner - our one meal each day, since there was nothing else there... heaven - best grouper I've ever had in my life! It would be tough to find anything like it anywhere in the world anymore...

Thanks so much Floyd for your comment on Law and Order. It's much appreciated.

Now, what I was really hoping to hear is the workaround chord I suggested in the diagram turned out to be useful. Of course, whether that particular voicing will work inside the song is your call. As far as the "clash" goes, I don't hear it because my ears are used to hearing, say, the mi7 played by the bass. You can walk the bass all the way down just as it stands. I'm really not sure what folks are hearing, only that it isn't familiar.

A well written, well-performed tune. I've used that same perc realdrum in conjunction with another drum set -- it works very nicely in certain situations, like this one here.

In any case, another super song, excellent! You have a way with words that very few do.

P.S. I was on the later side to Jimmy Buffet, didn't find out about him until Living and Dying in 3/4 Time. But White Sports Coat, 3/4 Time and A1A were a major part of my mis-spent youth. I started drifting away from his albums after Changes in Attitudes, though. My friend got his first Nashville album at some point in time back then.

Hi, Dean. By the time you got here, the "clash" no longer existed - that's why you did not hear it. I had "asked" BIAB to play that slash chord for me - which it doesn't do - it will do many slash chords, but the 6m7 with a bass a full step down is one the fingerpick RealTrack won't do...I tried a few substitutes, but never found one that worked. I recoded a track myself, but it would not sit right in he mix - so finally, I simply eliminated the slash bass note since that was where the clash occurred...

Floyd, I get it. It's fairly typical for BIAB not to have certain chords in the vocabulary of any particular style and I worked out a million tricks to get it play what I wanted - and all of them used slash chords. It turns out that the freakiest chords you've ever seen can always be rewritten as "stacked triads," which generalize slash chords. Instead of a single note in the bass, you have entire triads. Will BIAB will ever advance to that stage? I doubt it because there's likely to be little call for them.

In any case, I see your name all over the Forum page. You seem to have unlimited imagination and all the necessary chops to bang across whatever's in your head. You're one of a kind.

Thanks, Kevin. I heard "Sport Coat" before it was released to the public - my buddy and I used to rummage through LPs at our local radio station - Easy Listening, so all the good stuff went to boxes in the basement - When we started playing in bars at 17, we called our duo "Pencil Thin Mustache"...

Man, what a write. A literate but not at all pretentious love song. That's
a hard target to hit. A veritable clinic in how to write this type of tune.
The RT/Drums/Percussion choice is both interesting and very
supportive of the lyric and the typical fine vocal. With an instrument
like your voice mixing it up front like this is perfect. The harmony
is as lush as the strings.

Another great tune rolls outa the palatial jane studios!
