So... here's a second effort. Most of this is BIAB - about 20 different RealTracks. With an acoustic guitar and electric guitar track added. Harmonies, again, by the BIABettes...

Forever's Not As Long As It Used To Be

Comments/suggestions welcomed......

Have at it.

Hi,

From beat 1 it was outstandingly obvious that you're a professional in this genre. What a great song, great arrangement and brilliant sound! Very impressive.

You've certainly raised the bar for what is possible with BIAB!

All the best,
Noel

I agree with Noel!

Super song, great vox, outstanding lyrics and backing tracks.

You are a pro!

Noel, Mario, Frank -
Really appreciate the very kind words. BIAB is truly an incredible, wonderful "thing". Having WAY TOO MUCH FUN with it. SO much credit belongs to PGMusic....
Oops... gotta go... the band is waiting....

Like it a lot! Good story, what I call "turnaround" style with the hook both starting and ending the chorus. Nice lines, story flows.

Is that BIAB or RB?

Excellent job on the BIAB stuff -- nice mixing and production, too! I enjoyed the whole thing. Dang, I tried to find something to complain about (ha, ha) -- couldn't!

There's a lot to like here and I especially like how you hold out "looonnnngggg" - nice touch.

Good song, mix, arrangement. It's all been said.

And you've really got those BIABettes working for ya - some people have had a little trouble getting them to sound that good as they can be an ornery bunch..LOL!

Well done Floyd.

Very nice production work. The lyrics are excellent, they cry ballad to me. If I could suggest, try slowing the song down and making it more of a tender ballad. Your vocal and mastering process was flawless. Ballad or not it is still great work! Thanks for sharing!

My PC won't play it either. I get a popup saying 'Install Quicktime' but I've already got Quicktime installed?? Is there another link I can use?
Thanks.

eddie - the tracks are, of course, BIAB. I do my mixing in Acid Pro.

Kevin - appreciate the listen. I guess in this case, I'm glad to "disappoint ya".

Josie, Tommy, PgF - thanks for the encouragement... as for the BAIBettes, I find "them" quite easy to deal with. Much simpler than using my old Studio Vocalist.

Outstanding hook line. Very catchy.

Nice use of BIAB.
