It's been too long since I've had any time to post anything here! Been way to busy with work. I am hoping to see some changes in that area of my life. I sure miss being around here!

I was toying around with some 7/4 rhythms in my head, and came up with the idea for this song. All the tracks are RealTracks/RealDrums, along with some organ I played.

Solid Ground

To accomplish the 7/4 meter, I had to alternate 3/4 and 4/4 in BB. Took a little work, but I think it turned out alright. I hope you enjoy this one.

I hope to be around a lot more this year!

This turned out more than all right! I am amazed at how good the 7/4 timing works.( I mainly think in 4/4. :)) This is an very inspirational hymn--one I could see added to many hymnals. What a treat to listen to before I head off to worship service today!

Really nice work on this, Steve smile That hook is insanely catchy, and I love the progressions too. 7/4 is a time signature you don't see too often and you nailed it here. I barely noticed it wasn't 4/4 although it was obvious when I payed more attention.

Not a thing I'd change - thanks for sharing!


Cheers,

Excellent!!! Steve, what you have done with that time signature has made this one really shine! Everything here is of the highest caliber....vocals, musicianship, production etc! You have once again presented something that is in the upper echelon of music posted here! Oh and btw, this is a great song! Thanks, Torrey

This is superb. Everything: technical, musical and lyrical qualities are, to me, off the scale here. Exceptional achievement.

"To accomplish the 7/4 meter, I had to alternate 3/4 and 4/4 in BB. Took a little work, but I think it turned out alright. I hope you enjoy this one."

Whoa...I bet it did take a "little" work and it paid off big time with a superbly cool groove.

This is high bar material...the write, the vocals and, wow, that band. Sounds like y'all have been out gigging for a long time...so cohesive.

This is one that will seriously stick with you with its fine vocals, catchy groove, memorable hook and upbeat lyric.

A most enjoyable listen!

Hi Steve,

Brilliant!

There's something very infectious about this track. The rhythm rolls along so easily,
surprisingly when you consider the multiple time signatures. It just begs to be played
again and again.

Love the vocals. I've always admired your singing and this is some of your best.
Everything works as it should in a faultless mix.
Might be tricky to dance to!

ROG.

Terrific tune you have here . . . very engaging, highlighted by some great choices on the arrangement and production. Really like that organ in the bridge. Well done! Enjoyed my listen a ton.
