Lady In The Fedora

Dunno what genre this little ditty fits - Americana (folk rock) I guess. I took the SC photo of Janice last fall and it recently inspired the write as she does love her fedora! Hey, even Bud can write an upbeat love lyric every now and then smile Tom (tommyad) contributed a very cool guitar lead that really elevated the tune and seemed to fit the vibe so well (as I recall he capoed at the 12th fret to get that sound).

Janice: vocals (lead, lead doubled on bridge and two harmony tracks) Rodes NT1 > Scarlett interface > Logic Pro X / Nectar 2

Tom: lead guitar / whatever the man does

Bud: production, engineering, mix and photo of Janice

RTs/RDs and effects:

RT 995:Bass, Electric, HardRockLA Ev 120 / Waves Bass Rider / Neutron 2

RT 2499:Guitar, Baritone Electric, Rhythm PopCountryBrent Ev 120 / Neutron 2

RT 1681:Guitar, 12-String Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 12 / Neutron 2, Ozone 8 Imager / EMT 140 Reverb sim

RealDrums: NashvilleEven8 (snare doubled and additional cymbals added) / Neutron 2 / Waves CLA Drums / EMT 140 Reverb sim

Mastering: Ozone 8 and Ozone Tonal Balance

Thanks to Tom and floyd for mix counsel.


V1
lost in thought driving into the evening sun
It been a long day, he was about half past done.
he pulled off the highway for gas and a meal
a live music sign hung in front of a local grill

V2
she was perched on a barstool looking so serene
singing with heart and soul, the room was cheering
She was playing cool licks/riffs on a fine old Martin
but she had something special that got his attention

Chorus
she smiled at him beneath the brim of her hat
lord he had never seen anything quite like that
he couldn’t quit staring at the lady in the fedora
oh that lady in the fedora how he adored her

Bridge
years have past since that night
but he never forgot his first sight
Oh the day he drove down to Georgia
he still adores her his wife in the fedora

Chorus

One of my favorites from you two, I heard it a while back, and have listened a couple of times since.

Janice is her usual awesome self with that tone and phrasing smile

And Tom had me right from the start with that super cool intro.

Love the mix on this, especially the drums, those Toms sound awesome! I have a few of those CLA plugins, I don't however have CLA drums. Will need to pick that one up the next time it goes on sale for $29!

Thanks also for the additional mix details, never thought about putting an imager on an individual track before but I'll give it a try soon. You mentioned Ozone reverb, I didn't know they had a reverb module?

Excellent track, listened a few times and will listen again.

My bad Dave. I meant to say Izotope reverb. I used the Izotope Nectar 2 reverb module for all my reverb. It's a sim of the old EMT 140 unit. I'll edit the post. Good call!

I'm glad you like the drums. Tom told me about the CLA Drums and I grabbed it cheap.

I've found the Imager to sound good at times when I have a track panned near to the center. I convert all stereo RTs to mono before mixing except for keyboards and drums - pretending that I know what I'm doing smile It's always seemed odd to me to pan a stereo track. I leave keyboards very near center...something I learned from fj.

Thanks for everything you said. We appreciate it!

J&B

Wow - this is fantastic! Where this really got me was the vocal performance. Those harmonies are absolutely flawless. And when the chorus came in - boom, I was sold. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the radio. A++ on this one!

You really should be proud of this one - thanks so much for sharing smile

Nice love song y'all. I knew you had it in your Bud!!

Great guitar sound too Tom. Excellent vocals as always Janice.

Are you sure that was capoed at the 12th fret? That wpould be craY high. Didn't sound like it. I guess I will have to listen again.

Man, adds on facebook are getting *way* too smart! Scary actually.

I mentioned CLA drums in my review, then just now when I go to facebook there is an add from waves for CLA Drums. And, it's still on sale for $29, so I bought it.

Thanks for the tip!

J&B, Thanks for letting me take part in this great write, performance and production. I had a blast! Yes David, that's the Tele capoed at the twelfth fret and fingerpicked. Thanks for all the nice comments from everyone about the guitar part, Tom

Hey guys, this is a great track. Love the super guitar work and the 'Linda Ronstadt' vocal delivery.
Beautifully engineered and produced. Thanks for the listen!

Janice Tom & Bud

Like Dave I heard this a little while ago and playing it again is like hearing an old familiar favourite.
Lovely guitar work - not easy playing with a capo at the 12th fret - great mix and sound, strong lyrics and of course a beautiful vocal with some lovely harmonies.

Another top notch composition.

Peter

Janice, Bud & Tom,

I love this... The sound and overall feeling are great. It's fresh, and as always Janice has full emotional control of where the song is going.

Perfect write, mix and delivery - absolutely pro all the way!

J&B,
What the listeners above said... and I like the softness at the centre of the story. A happy ending with ringing guitars ( great work, Tom!) and standout vocals, of course.
A little of the Byrds, with all the goodness of Janice & Bud.
Excellent work.

Robert

Thanks Deryk. This one was fun from start to finish. Thanks for mentioning the harmony. They are two tracks by Janice with slightly different amounts of reverb and delay.

Glad you liked it!

Heartwarming write, well sung, solid mix. Subtle harmonies. The kick certainly comes through on the headphones!

As usual, nicely done!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

I always have high expectations when I see you post a song. Yet, they are never high enough.

To me, it's catchy, has a cool feel to it, produced really well, and has really nice instrumentation all the way around. I like that drum sound, too. smile

Do I also need to mention that the guitar and vocals are great? Ice is cold...as long as we are mentioning things that are REALLY obvious.

Great job all!

Hello, Janice & Bud, Tom

Really wonderful collaboration!
Tom's guitar work is great.
And it is surprising twice that it is the Tele capoed at the twelfth fret and fingerpicked.
As John said, I also love the 'Linda Ronstadt' vocal delivery.
Beautifully engineered and produced.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

B&J + Tom,
EXCELLENT stuff.
The vocal is just the San Francisco side of country - the Tom guitar is very cool.
My only suggestion would be to take the 12 string guitar track and hammer it with a good compressor & add a little top end to bring out some chime - it'd be Byrdsian then. Alternately add a strummed 12 string with the same compressor/EQ treatment to get chime happening - that'll go well with Tom's work.

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
