Floyd,

It's already been said a thousand times but you are the master of this kind of song.

I love your use of harmonies and all the little details that make a difference.

Well done!

floyd, this is another master class in lyric crafting. Beautifully written. A fine vocal and the top shelf production that we are so accustomed to. Love the congas. Really good listen. Tom

Wow Floyd, this is a perfect 'crossover' - pop with a country flavor. Exceptional lyrics, very strong write and a great mix and arrangement. Everything falls right into place. Vocals and harmonies are superb.

I like this one a lot.

After several listens to this we are struck as always with what
a fine singer and writer you are. Your lyrics are like a fine book
where one can always count on a gem for every page. No matter
the subject or the genre your lyrics are invariably full of cool
little twists and turns...never over done but enough to separate
them from the pack. Perhaps it your ability to offer a fresh take
on any theme.

Your mixes are showcases (well this is the showcase) for just how
amazing RT's and RD's are.

Oh yeah, cool percussion too.

Kudos mr jane

TWO big thumbs up (unless you count my big toes!) Another great effort Floyd!! Take care. Greg

Shigeki Adachi - Thank you for those very kind words. The GroovyFolk guitar is overlooked, I think - a good choice for an acoustic for certain songs - it play interesting patterns (quite James Taylor-ish). The Percussion RDs fit nicely with many of the regular Drum RDs and give a song better movement...

Thanks, Herb - glad you made it through it without too much effect. We were fortunate that it stayed far enough east that it had little effect here...

Addendum to our previous response:

We've now listened in both vehicles, on the larger "living room" system and of course on our monitors. The mix is remarkable on all three and IMO that is a primary indicator of a great mix. Heck it sound good on our iPad!

Floyd

good one bud.

the lyrics on the song and arrangement.


Top notch.

I am a bit apprehensive to comment ....now.

Been away working from home and

came back on the forum and seen what my last post had caused

but I enjoyed this.

And had to comment.

Take care.

What can I say that has not been said? Terrific voice that has somehow found the ideal lyrical and musical styles to allow it to reach the heights.
I am working a bit on constructing bridges and composing fills. Haven't found a better teacher than your tracks; so, thanks.

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

Read more about these enhancements here, or jump to the New Feature - Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) Enhancements section of our New Features video here.
