Hello VT ...

Thank you so much! You're a very accomplished and knowledgeable musician / composer and your nice comments put a big smile on my face. Again, thank you. Take care and have a great 2021.

Hello VT ...

I always feel privileged when you stop in for a listen and leave a few well-chosen and considerate words after listening to my musical.

Thank you so much for those very kind words. "Unique and imaginative" are powerful words and I am deeply humbled and simultaneously pleased your suggestion of them. Thank you so much. Thank you again for your kindness. Glad you agree with the spatial placement of the lead guitar. I simply wanted it to be a gentle but easily identifiable track that kept the music cohesive and going in the right direction. Many thanks for your input and support.

Wishing you everything good.

What an amazing song. I absolutely LOVE music that creates a mood. I've probably mentioned that a few times now. smile
Anyway, you always seem to be able to catch my ear and bring me to a place where I know the feeling of what's happening without a single world being used. THAT is what blows my mind. FEELING in music is pretty much everything to me. I completely forget the tools you are using and just listen to something that speaks to my soul. You consistently bring that to your songs. This song being one that really showcases that.

Thank you for having some fun with the mix and and chord choices. You did both in a way that I think any musician would give you a tip of the hat to. Not weird; but VERY interesting can be hard to pull off. You made this seem like child's play. I know that I could not pull what you did off.

Thanks for sharing this. I will be listening to this a good number of times in my life, so I thank you for that gift. It's fun to be inspired!

Aaron:

What does one say after such a terrific review? A sincere thank you is what first comes to mind. Even though I do not spend nearly as much time "tweaking" my compositions as most folks do, I generally have a good idea what I'm trying to achieve as I put my songs together. I focus more on "listenability" and 'feel" than I do technical issues - not that I don't consider the technical issues. I just want the listener to enjoy the song. Most listeners who are not musicians just want a song that entertains them, speaks to them, or just catches their fancy.

As you may know, I'm also an author. I approach my literary writing in a very similar manner. I just want to tell an interesting story. In my music, I just want to create something that catches the emotion of the listener.

Again, I am humbled by but very appreciative of your very kind review. Thank you so very much!

Wishing you everything good in 2021.

Alan

YES!! Alan, I got so caught up in the feel the first go-round I had to listen twice to consider the mix. Dang, it's mixed so perfectly --everything plays its part so well in its place I'd swear they were in the same live studio. This is soooo good.

Hi Marty ...

Thank you so much! You are always very kind to my music. I appreciate that very much. As I think you know, I do all my "mixing" on the chord input page ... no DAW other than using Audacity to covert it to an MP3 and a WAV. I might slightly touch up the EQ or give the tracks a small amount of compression. But everything else is done in BIAB.

Again, thank you!

Alan

Hi Leon ...

Thank you so much for all your very nice comments. Glad you enjoyed the song. I appreciate you letting me know. As far as many talents, I've always enjoyed the creative side of things. I don't know how much talent is in that, but I have a heck of a good time with my projects. Again, many thanks ...

these genrés ! Absolutely superb
music !

Ahhhh...such a relaxing piece to listen to after a tiring day of work. Thanks for composing the right prescription for my exhaustion. Beautiful composition and nicely layered and mixed production. That lead is in the mix just right...like baby bear porridge.

The thing that strikes me about your BIB creations, Alan, is the way you manage to select the best melodic pieces and make them into an engaging whole.
Lovely stuff.
