Hi Elliot ...

What a fun, care-free song! It took but a couple of seconds to put a smile on my face!

Great BIAB backing tracks. And what a marvelous vocal!!! Made me feel happier and just a little more "comfy" as I listened. I really, truly like this. That was a delightful treat ... just what I needed.

Wishing you the very best ...

Alan

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

Ahhh, hot sand, cool breeze, and friends, What a great combination. A great feel, Elliott. Full moon, sunsets and a child's voice. Man! Great tune, with a perfect band and vocals. I was expecting to hear a steel drum solo, but the guitar was a welcomed surprise.

Hello Elliot,

I hear a cheerful song, with a reggae touch, clear vocals and a strong chorus!
Now I am thinking of making me a Rum and Coke ( Cuba libre), while just before listening to your song I will not drink today.
So thanks you prevend me from doing that and pour me that drink!
Very nice song!
One tiny thing: I prefered it if your band plays a bit louder to the vocals, so they become more glued together (if you get what I want to say),

Hans

Pleasant little tune...at a perfect time!

And, yes, gain staging is task #1 when setting up a multitrack mix. It's about getting to the final loudness level with everything balanced to the ear. Different streaming services can have different requirements.

A good, free meter for measuring the loudness level on your stereo output buss, is the Youlean meter (I use the Pro version).

https://youlean.co/youlean-loudness-meter/

If you haven't seen this one, here's a good video on measuring the output loudness level:

Reggae is a genre we enjoyed for decades...

Happy lyric, sad lyric or the phonebook reggaeis groove is always
infectious and upbeat. And your song is certainly no exception.

Nice write, vocal, guitar, production and band.

Enjoyed it,

J&B

The guitar lead was from real tracks. I used the DirStraights solo gtr and generated several variations and cut and pasted edited it until I got the final lead.

Really nice work - you don't hear too many reggae songs here on the forums, so this was kind of a breath of fresh air smile Loved the groove, and the guitar solo fits perfectly in the mix.

Thanks for sharing!

Catchy upbeat song for a summer playlist, definitely works on a hot beach dancing on the sand with good friends - just remember to keep your distance smile

Just what the doctor ordered, a fun song.

Super vocal with outstanding backing tracks, loved.

All I need now is some rum.

I don't know about everyone here, but now that I've settled in to our "new normal" I've taken to rearranging and dusting off many things in order to keep busy and productive!

I'm picking up old hobbies, picking up clutter around the house, and as it turns out - finding forgotten picks!

We snagged these gems many, many, many years ago after The NAMM Show one winter. Check out the old Band-in-a-Box logo! Click here...
