Just going for something whimsical.

https://soundcloud.com/david-snyder-gigs2/cinnamon-tree

I am enjoying my journey through the 2019 Real Sets. Got stuck at 317 "Guitar and Piano for Songwriters." I was shooting for a simple sound and purity in the mix on this one--used the Waves Abbey Road TG Mastering Plugin (love it) on Instrument Bus and Drum bus, with final polish in Ozone.

CINNAMON TREE

V1

Adam and Eve
In the garden of Eden
Walked near a Cinnamon Tree
Adam said Eve
Now look what we’ve done
I guess we’ll have to live free
Eve said to Adam
Just take my hand
Cause I’m just a woman
And you’re just a man
We’ll drive ‘cross this earth
Find our own promised land
Cause we’re doing the best that we can

CH

So they rolled down the windows
Held hands in the dark
Drove ‘cross the world
With a wide open heart
They made love in the meadows
And slept by the sea
And kissed ‘neath a cinnamon tree
Yeah they kissed ‘neath a cinnamon tree
a cinnamon tree

CH

Now there’s lovers from Asheville
And Asbury Park
Searching for faith
But it’s a shot in the dark
Cause you are what you are
And it’s all you can be
When you know that you have to live free

CH

So let's roll down the windows
Hold hands in the dark
Drive ‘cross the world
With a wide open heart
Make love in the meadows
And sleep by the sea
Just like Adam and Eve
We’ll kiss ‘neath that cinnamon tree

Inst.

This is a clever idea for a song. I wish I woulda thunk it. Lyrics and music flow nicely from verse to chorus--I especially like the change in the last chorus. It gives a completion to the song.

Nice job. I like the tracks you used.... nice and full but simple.

Channeling Dylan again.... ?

I like it.

Sounds like you're starting to get your vocals dialed in a bit.

Very nicely done, David smile Loving the lyrics on this. They are really unique, clever, and definitely memorable. That aside, your vocals are top notch as always and the chorus is nice and powerful. Definitely picking up the Dylan influence on this one, which is never a bad thing by me.

Great work, and thanks for sharing!

David

Excellent work on this, one of your best vocals and a strong set of lyrics.
It was also immediately engaging and nicely familiar.

Very well done.

David,
From Eden to Asbury Park with a sweet message and rolling music... had me swaying.
Really enjoyed the lyrics and everything on vocals/backing/mix sounds just right.
Very good!

Issuing a different Cinnamon Challenge.
The vocal intro gave an impression of impending strut R.O.C.K. nice touch to confound expectations.
Really enjoyable narrative.

Had a hankering for something simple. A well-writ little song with some big ideas tucked into the twang and that time sig. Very satisfying.

As a side note: I'm glad they didn't make love in a Cinnabon in the airport waiting for a flight between Asheville and Asbury Park. They's people tryin' to eat.

Hi David,

It's been a while since you posted a song, but man, this was worth the wait! Great intro, excellent writing, and possibly your best vocal yet.

People have mentioned Dylan, I'm hearing some Springsteen vibes happening also.

Very, very good!

Hi David!! Good to see you back!! Really like this.....has a great rhythmic drive and some wonderfully creative DS lyrics!! I have a question. The style is SINNER. I was curious if you just liked "the band" in the PG demo, and that word was the trigger for this creative tune. Kind of a shot in the dark but then again: Is there really such thing as coincidence? Really nice work David!! Take care. Greg

I agree with everyone.

Clever write. Fun song.

Style is _SINNER.STY

Hrm... I don't seem to have that one on my list. wink

I guess you take inspiration from wherever you find it!

Love how the stately and measured pacing of the instruments couple with the the spirited and emotive lyrics and vocals on this track.

Well done, David!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
