Four Footed Friends

My tribute to pets.

I built the song in BIAB and finished the tracks in Studio One. I played the guitar solo at the intro and break and the string background starting at the break.

The style I used for this song was _CELTICUS.STY. I used the following RealTracks:
Bass=1106 Banjo=1105 Harmonica=2859 Guitar=1108 Guitar=1109 Piano=1188 Drums=NashClassicWaltzSW Fiddle=1107

Below is the link to my song Four Footed Friends:

Barry ...

A very nice tribute to a furry loved ones. We have a mini Dachshund. She was given to us just before our son passed away, so she's pretty special. Nice playing and a really sweet lyric. The mix is perfectly balanced. I enjoyed my listen a lot.

Wishing you the very best ...

Alan

Loved it. Great song, super vocal and video, all in the perfect mix.

We always have had dogs. Today we have two [*****]-Tzus so I can really relate to this song. You put into music how we feel about our pets.

Excellent work!

What a cool song. I enjoyed it.

I've got a dog.... Lilly. Many of the folks here know her story..... I'll just say that she's my buddy and goes almost everywhere with me. She's a certified HRD K9 and we are a team. She's a most amazing dog.

Loved the song.

Hey Barry! I liked that a lot!

In my opinion, using video to engage more of the listener's senses is a good idea whenever it makes sense to do so... and especially in this case, pictures of cute animals are bound to generate a whole separate home run. When you combine an interesting song and a well made video, the end product benefits from the extra work you put into the production. Given the choice between listening to an audio-only tune or an audio-visual production, I'll pick the video first every time.

I look forward to hearing/seeing more from you!

I really enjoyed this! laugh

Honestly, I wasn't sure I'd like this song when I clicked it. I figured it would be maudlin and cute.

Which, of course, it is.

But it was also catchy, really cleverly written, self-aware of the genre, and made nice use of alliteration.

I mention this as a compliment that you've won me over despite my entirely unreasonable predisposition to not enjoy the song.

I was happy to be proven wrong, and in such a big way. laugh

And since I was thinking "Cats don't come when we call", so you get an extra star for addressing that! (As well as a number of other questions, both theological and silly). grin

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

We all need some friends.

Nice little tribute to those that are the most loyal.

Nicely done.

"There's no way to convince them to get off of the bed." Ain't that the truth.

This is a good sing along song.

Your lyrics are spot on about our beloved critters.

Thanks Pat! I usually look for the songs that have videos too. I like the videos that contain the lyrics. I'll watch it the first time for the pictures and then watch it again and read the lyrics.

Thank you David for the comments! We have two stubborn cats and I'm not even convinced they know they have names. If they do they never let on.
