Hello, forum friends

After a short charging period, I would like to resume posting my music to the forum again.
This song is re-arranged for our latest recording session in this summer.
I wrote it with Motown style.
I would like to introduce you two versions of the same score, which are the BIAB MIDI version and the live band version.
Any comments encouraged.
Always welcome.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Title: 恋のレッスン (Translation: Love Lesson)

Vocal: Natsuki, our local female jazz vocalist
(This vocal track was recorded about 15 years ago. Fotunately the individual vocal track was found in the music folder of my old computer.)

Link of Live Band Version by Yamaha Teachers:
https://soundcloud.com/animarorecords/love-lesson-live-band-version
These live band tracks were just recorded in this August listening to the above vocal track.

Link of BIAB MIDI Version:
https://soundcloud.com/animarorecords/lovelesson
Style is MOTOWN_1.STY Style MIDI Instruments are : Fretless Bass (36), Electric Muted Guitar (29), Electric Strat Guitar (28), MIDI Drums.
Some other MIDI instruments played with Kontakt were added.
These tracks were recorded about 15 years ago together with the above vocal track.

Summary of lyrics:

While you behave awkwardly
You are ruining the mood of love
I want to teach you
That there are rules in love

You are insensitive
Because you don't understand the delicate feelings
I'm not refusing you
But I'm just only teasing you

Don't miss the chance of love
Also girls are waiting
Don't hesitate, I love you
Now is the time you can kiss me.

When we are hugging exactly
Our fast heartbeats are transmitted with each other
So I understand that you are excited more than me

Trying to tempt you
I must be a little bad girl
If you can't handle me any more
Please look for another girl

I'll teach you everything tonight
The sweetness of kisses and the secret of love
You will be good at loving with my lessons
Because you are an excellent student more than I expected

Don't miss the chance of love
Also girls are waiting
Please believe me, I love you
Please hold me tight while kissing me

Shigeki,
Welcome back!
Your band sounds tight and well rehearsed. Listening to Natsuki is alwaysa treat- she communicates so much energy.
Tough to pick between the versions-I think the vocal processing is a bit different and
clearer on the Midi recording, but I like the wamth of the band sound too.
I hope you`ll stick around - I really enjoy your music!

Robert

Shigeki Adachi,

Welcome back.

Wonderful energy in both versions. Natsuki's vocal is wonderful.

I like the punchy clarity of the bass in the MIDI version. And the brightness of the vocal.
The horns in the live version sound good.

I enjoyed listening to both.

Nice! I liked the first (especially the horns), but loved the brightness and energy of the second.

The vocal is more up-front in the MIDI version, but the MIDI sax is up-front and obviously MIDI.

The introduction on live version intro seems to have a bit less punch. On the MIDI version, the sax comes in right on the beat. In the live version, there seems to be a bit of slapback delay in addition to the reverb on the horns that pulls a bit of the punch.

The live version also has a doubled vocal and strings, which gives it a warmer feel.

Both versions are quite nice. Excellent work!

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

What a tune! The live version took a slight edge for me, personally - but both are lovely. It's a huge tune, and I found it catchy and attention grabbing. Some fantastic progressions and the arrangement is top tier.

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

I LOVE the "live" version. The BIAB midi is fine BUT... the 1st version kicks along a little more.

Nice to hear from you again and with such a nice motown pop song, catchy, uplifting and sweetly romantic. Enjoyable chord progression. Great production in both versions. The vocals are nice and bright especially in the BIAB version.

Hey welcome back.

There is a lot to like with each version.

IF we had to pick we'd go with the live version.

But both are excellent and what a vocal!!
