This recording was made with mostly BIAB instruments...the only non-BIAB tracks are the Drums (EZDrummer) and the piano (EZKeys).

Thanks,
James

Loved it. Super lyrics and vocal! Excellent backing tracks and mix. It is also a real toe tapper.

I like everything about this one!

Nicely done all around - and catchy too! I'm with Mario all the way! laugh

The lyric "this microbial infection/is making too many people die" is a really clever write, but it made me curious enough to look it up. The internet informs me that a "microbe" is a "microscopic organism", but since viruses (and prions) aren't considered living, they aren't considered microbes.

Which isn't a criticism of the song at all. Just - darned it, you also made me learn something, too! wink

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

James,

Good write. Good vocal.

Nice supportive backing tracks. Good use of BIAB.

Really well mixed. Sounds good.

Thanks, David!

And thanks for the input on microbes. However, there does seem to be some wigggle room there...Just as a point of clarification, acording to the 'microbiology society' (of which I am not a member):

"Viruses are the smallest of all the microbes."

https://microbiologysociety.org/why-microbiology-matters/what-is-microbiology/viruses.html

In any case, this whole area of discussion is way above my pay grade...

Best,
James
