Hi folks,

Hope everyone is well, haven't posted anything in a long long time, so here is an old time waltz.

Never too Old to fall in love.


I probably will redo the vocal some time as too much sibilance in it.

Any comments appreciated.

Thanks.


Style is C_WLZMED.STY (Country Waltz - Medium Tempo)
Style MIDI Instruments are : Finger Electric Bass (34), Acoustic Piano (1), Acoustic Guitar (26), Acoustic Guitar (26),
MIDI Drums :1 Standard Drum Kit (1)
Fiddle background realtrack

Lovely song. Super vocal and lyric. I can imagine sitting in the corner of the pub surrounded by friends all singing this song. Well done

Hi Musiclover.

This is great!

I love waltzes and you've created a wonderful gem here. The lyrics, your singing, the arrangement -- everything worked for me. I liked that your vocals were a little out front and so easy to understand.

It's two enthusiastic thumbs up from me!

All the best,
Noel

Hello Noel,

Its good to hear from you, hope you are doing well over there.
Thanks for having a listen and you comments.

When I think of songs with a positive uplifting message that have been posted on here your songs have come to mind, so maybe that has influenced me when I put this little song down.

all the best for now.

Very much appreciate you having a listen Ember, considering that you are all very busy this time of year, probably with biab 21.

Regards and thanks to everyone at PGmusic for making this all possible with band in a box.

Thanks Captain for having a listen, glad you liked the lyrics, hopefully it comes across as a positive message.

Maybe sometime in future I will try to re-do the vocal, as sibilance is probably too pronounced for de-essing.

Take care

musiclover,

A really nice song. A sweet story, well told.

Your vocal is quite nice - perfect for the story. The backing, too.

I assume you are playing accordion? Sounds good.

You list the BIAB details as (mostly) MIDI. If you are using a vst for the acoustic guitar - it is a good one - sounds good...

I enjoyed the listen. You should post more often! After all we're "never too old to share". smile

Thanks a lot Floyd for taking the time to have a listen.

I use Halion Se as the default synth in biab, I like the sound of it.

The accordion is just notated in biab, I find biab makes it easy enough to enter a simple melody line.

Thanks again.

As Scott said, "I can imagine sitting in the corner of the pub surrounded by friends all singing this song."

His comment brought up great imagery that we have of your country from the many travelogs we watch.
We feel like we've been in that pub.

It's always cool to hear a waltz ... back in our bluegrass band days we played quite a few. Janice just loves them.

Nice write, vocal, arrangement, band and the mix sounds good on our monitors.

We enjoyed the entire package!

Thanks a lot Peter for having a listen, biab does make it easy to enter the melody for the midi accordion.

Cheers.

A wonderful story, and a captivating presentation, musiclover (you wear the moniker so well!). Man, I can hear this song being sung by the whole crowd swinging their mugs in the air. I'm in.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Musiclover,

Some minutes ago I decided to go to the forum again, listen to some songs and do my 'homework' answering reactions.
This morning i did this as well, but then something came across.
So I saw your reaction on my song (Thanks, I will react on it), but also saw your song and heard it.
And what a nice one that is. The lyrics are so nice, especially the last one. I do like these Irish songs very much.
We loved the Dubliners and the Pogues. There was a Dutch band in my neighbourhood imitating the Dubliners very well, but of course not as good as the real one.

You and your nice vocals gave the real touch to this song. Very good!
I think you are right though to get rid of some sibilance. It is something they had to tell me many times. I think I solved it (a bit) so for you it will be easy too ;-)

Nice song!
Hans

Thanks a lot Hans for having a listen, good to know you like the Irish music, the accordion is very popular here as you probably know, and we give our own twist to home grown country songs known as Country and Irish.

I do like to have a clear vocal and think with this one sometime in future I will re-do it again, as sibilance is too much for my liking, have tried de-essing and pulling the frequency down where I think it is happening but it doesn't do much good.

As it says in an online article "its better to get it right at the source" when recording so that is good advice.

Glad you like the song though and thanks again.
