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!


Cheers,

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.


Cheers

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!

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

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!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
