Tom,

Thanks for taking the time. Your thoughts are appreciated.

After that first draft I sent across, everything wove together seamlessly. I used to look forward to a budandjanice email appearing in my inbox because I knew it would hold some more ideas and tweaks for lyrics and music. I don't think it's possible for collaborating to be any easier or more enjoyable than what I experienced. It was great to be part of the team.

Thanks again!
Noel

Hi,

It reminds me of a Joan Baez's tune, very smooth ballad, I like it.

Noel & Company -

Late on this one as usual, but ditto to what ROG said! He's a music professor, so he must know, right? grin

Excellent stuff. A 9000 mile collaboration.

Noel, Janice, Bud...

A lovely song. Neat hook - have heard Bud say that a number of times smile

The melody is a real standout. One of those that you feel you have known your whole life (like the perfect partner!).

Excellent arrangement and mix...supporting that gorgeous vocal perfectly (another perfect partnership!). All parts (instruments) are so clear - nice space.

A terrific collaboration.

Tom, that is so nice of you to say that! You know us well enough to understand how the lyric completely reflects mine and Bud's relationship. We really appreciate your support.

Hi Trev,

Glad you dropped in!

One of the beauties of BIAB is that we who write songs can get away with doing so little. I began this backing with the style _CELLOW2.STY (Dual Cello Waltz) and its default tempo. From there I played around with what other Realtracks were potentially available. When I received Janice's vocal, it became clear that a minimalist backing was all that was needed to frame her wonderful singing. From my perspective, too many instruments were distracting. I wanted to come up with an arrangement that allowed Janice and her melody to shine as brightly as possible. I'm pretty sure that I can safely say that we're all glad to read that it worked for you.

Thanks for passing through the thread.
Noel

Hi Kenny.

Thanks for taking the time to listen.

While I sent a draft melody to Bud and Janice as a starting place. That was all it was meant to be... a starting place. This was my only contribution to the melody. The end result morphed quite a bit from that first draft. The best analogy I can think of is that of a butterfly and how it begins as a cocoon. My melody was simply a cocoon and under Janice's nurturing it became a butterfly. The final melody is Janice's and, like you, I think it's really beautiful.

Thanks again!

Regards,
Noel

Nice waltz, beautiful lyrics with a crystal clear message and great lines like: "How did fortune choose me? I haven't got a clue". Completed with Janice's voice that fits the song perfectly, 'tomorrow' sounds really Noel smile I like also the cello, especially its raw power at the end.

Hi Josie,

Welcome to the thread. Thanks for giving the song a listen and taking time to comment. The lyrical tapestry grew with each trip across the equator. In so many ways, everything about this song was a team effort. If any one of our contributions were removed from the process, the song could not exist.... collaboration at its best, I reckon!!

Regards
Noel
