The Reckoning Time

Years ago we were immersed in traditional bluegrass and playing in a frequently gigging band (Janice on guitar and Bud on upright bass in those days). It’s been a long and fun journey to our current bluesy Americana productions but it’s also fun to get back in touch with our music roots. So here we have a redo of a song we recorded 25 years ago with the great Randy Howard.

Recently we had an opportunity to share some time with floyd during which I played some of our bluegrass for him including the original recording of this tune. He suggested I create a BiaB version of it which we did…and we asked him to join in on the vocals which he did. smile And for which we are most appreciative.

Gospel songs have always been part of the bluegrass repertoire and we performed many in our live performances. We rarely wrote during those days but we did attempt to write this, hopefully, “traditional sounding” bluegrass gospel song.

For this remake we used two different structures of bluegrass harmonies within the song and I did a lot of comping to try for a traditional bluegrass rhythm guitar sound with the obligatory guitar “g runs” and a bass track that pretty much duplicated what we played on the original.

Whether or not bluegrass is to your liking we appreciate your comments!

Janice: lead and harmony vocals / Nectar 2
floyd: counter point vocal (third verse) and harmony vocals / Nectar 2
Bass: RT 592 is the basis with individual notes comped from RT 1393 for the walk up and down sections Logic Pro EQ / Waves Bass Rider / Waves CLA Bass
Guitar: RT 593 “G Runs” comped in from previous project / Waves CLA Unplugged
Fiddle Rhythm chops: RT 593 / Waves CLA Unplugged
Mandolin Rhythm chops: RT 599 / Waves CLA Unplugged
Fiddle Solos: Comped from multiple regens of RTs 596/2032 / Neutron 2 / EMT 140 Plate Reverb sim
Mandolin Solo: RT 820 / Waves CLA Unplugged

Janice & Bud (and Floyd):

What a nice sounding tune—generally I’m not a follower of bluegrass, but this has all the elements that attract me to a song: great melody, sweet, clean harmonies, and terrific instrumentation and backing. A total toe-tapper, this one. And terrific vox throughout. Outstanding!

My regards to you all,

Deej

Hi guys,

I know nothing about bluegrass, but this sounds good to me! Cool song.

Always a pleasure to hear Janice do her thing, and floyd is sounding good too.

Mix sounds good through the phones, Bud, and always interesting to read your production notes. I needed to google "G runs", never heard that term before! Learn something new every day smile

Good stuff guys and gal, enjoyed the listen!

Janice Bud & floyd

You've done a superb job getting a wonderful sound. Looks like lots of comping there has resulted in a great track, and Janice sounds wonderful, loved the harmonies and Janice & floyd together always sound brilliant.

Top job on the production Bud leading to a terrific project and collaboration.

Peter

Nice work on this! Loving the classic bluegrass vibe on this. It flows perfectly, and as always the vocals are stunning. The harmonies are really smooth, and I thought it was perfectly catchy.

Thanks for sharing smile

Yeah, the FIRST thing you learn with bluegrass guitar is that run and then a zillion chord change runs. A great BG guitar picker once told me it him a year to learn the runs and 20 years to learn when not to do them! Thanks!

Wow, you three, this is truly sublime.

A remarkable sound in all ways and on all levels.

Love it. And I DO love bluegrass. So I was happy.

Also, glad to all hear y'all three finally got saved.

I was worried there for a while. I hope Floyd did not corrupt you too much on the visit.

This genre is one that I know close to nothing about - I can just say that I really enjoyed listening to the song. I think the vocal performances sounded really good in my ears and I admire all the talent that the three of you have!
