When I saw your new contribution I was
looking forward to listening.
It's a masterpiece again.
And again I like your harmonies very much.
I can't tell if they are Biabettes or real.
The lyrics are very uplifting.

Great song, lyric, arrangement, the whole thing
I really enjoyed it.
I am impressed with how you got BIAB to do such a good job weaving in the guitars and breaks. Nice ending as well.

Thanks for posting,
Dave

Floyd,

Not only is the music great, but.

Very "Inspirational".

Really enjoyed it.

Thanks for sharing!

Another great tune, Floyd. No negative comments here.

I am particularly impressed how you can set the mix with all those guitar parts going all at once without creating a messy, muddy distracting jumble. I know, it's in the EQ and the panning and such, but I just haven't learned to really do it yet.

Hi Floyd.

Nice to see you keeping up your impeccably high standard.

Nice arrangement and I simply can't fault the mix. Add to that, the very clever lyrics, excellent vocals and harmony and you've got a winner.

Hi Floyd
remember what I said to you - that "music" had disappeared in the so-called "POP" world and had gone to C&W. Clever, thoughtful and/or humorous lyrics, great tunes and real instruments playing real people (and I include BIABs RT players in that).
This is a perfect example. AWESOME!!
Loved the song and the way it progressed to Rebecca Lynn and then at the end you had the neat Coda break (if thats what its called) that took us back into the chorus for the final time.
In key of G and I soon grabbed my acoustic and was riffing out those chords with my little pinky doing the RnR bit on the chords.
SUPERB.
cheers
ian

Floyd,

I agree with all that has been said. Wonderful imagery and great vocals. The "horns" must be buried in the mix, I couldn't hear a one of them.

Just great all around, every dimension. As good as anything I listen to on the radio, if not better than most.

Those are real harmonies, sung independently, aren't they? I am gradually less excited by the harmony-machines, even though they get better and better.

One question, forgive my ignorance... barrel races? Is this something I should go to? Been a long time since I was in Texas.

I love this forum. It seems like "family"...

Guenter - Thank you. It's about time for some new from you (which I look forward to). The harmonies are, in fact, "real". Although, the fact that you "wondered" makes me "proud" of the BIABettes....

Dave - Thanks - it really pretty easy with what PG has given us...

Frank - appreciate that, as always.... missed ya, man... you need to get some new stuff "out there" - you should have been on the list...

Daisy - Panning is important, but I don't really do any EQing to the tracks - they are exactly as they come out of BIAB - it's incredible stuff...

ROG - I really do appreciate that you "take a listen" and take the time to comment...\

Joanne - Thanks.

Ian - so glad you "enjoyed this"....

austin - You are a funny man - "Horns".... isn't it about time for another from you???

Bob - I assume you are including this as a "bonus" to that CD of mine you are selling??? (But, seriously.... you are doing some VERY COOL sh**)....

And Brad.... you always seem to get your own reply....

>>>> Those are real harmonies, sung independently, aren't they?

They are. I did 2 harmonies - and as I was "auditioning them" they seem to both work, so I left them...panned left and right...

>>>>> One question, forgive my ignorance... barrel races? Is this something I should go to?

Barrel races are a regular rodeo event - most often, a women's event..

The Wiki definition:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barrel_racing

..and a video to show you what it really is....

If you're gonna write about something... you ought to know what you're "talkin' about"....

Hi Floyd!

I'm very late to the party with this one! All I can do is say ...



... to everything that's been said above. This is truly outstanding from every which way one wants to look at it.

I'm always impressed by the metaphors you discover and the way you unwrap them in the lyrics. You're one heck of a talented songwriter.

All the best,
Noel

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
