Revamping an old song with a new arrangement, some new lyrics and and emphasis on simplicity. BiaB was the key.

I used BiaB 2021 and these elements from BLUERIJ>STY Blue Ridge Mountain Country Folk
521 Bass, Electric Pop Syncopated Ev 36
3156 Fiddle, 5 string, Rhythm Americana Mountain
3185 Guitar, Acoustic Rhythm Mountain
1108 Guitar Acoustic Fingerpicking

Thanks for listening...Dan

Hi Dan.
Something in your voice reminds me of Marty Robbins.
It's a good voice and I think you should bring it up a couple of db in the mix.

Hi, Dan.

Well done - your voice really carries this song. Nice write and production as well.

Apropos to nothing, verse one got me thinking - on paper, "Lord" and "word" should be a stronger rhyme than they actually are. wink

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

Dan,

Great vocal on this—agree with Vic it could come forward just a bit. It’s too good to hide. I like the song; soft and easy on the ear, with a pretty melody. Like those back vox as well—they really add depth. Good stuff!

Best regards,

Deej

Deej...thanks for the comments...I like to put the vocals into the mix and don't care for them too out front...I probably err the wrong way...I don't hear "Marty Robbins" when I sing I hear me and that scares me enough to try to hide my lead vocals...now given the genre of music I write that's counter productive because the message is more important than the song or the singer... so I know your council is sound...it's always been quite a quandary....thanks for he thoughts...Dan

I also got a Marty Robbins vibe and yes I remember "A White Sports Coat and a Pink Carnation".

You do have a good voice, don't a afraid of it and don't bury it in the mix. Nice harmonies on this very good song.

Hi Firesong,

You made a very nice song with this one!
While listening to it, something sounded familiair and made me think of Harry Belafonte (in a way).
Also your use of the background vocals is very good.
I liked it!

Hans

Yeah, Dan! Great use of BiaB. It's perfect for reworking songs. [I found an old file yesterday of a song called Blue Prince, and there were 15 different versions]. Man, so glad you brought this one out of the "old song" category. It may be a simple arrangement, but it's simply brilliant.

Is it too much to say I love BiaB?...or just that I really like it...I bet I have at least 50 songs that I've either written or redone because of BiaB...the perfect tool for the writer/ composer that doe not have a band at their disposal...Dan

To steal a Greg Allman phrase, "Everything's hittin' the note!"

We enjoyed the write, the band, the mix and the vocal.

We remember a LOT more about Marty than just "A White Sports Coat..." And yeah there is a bit of his timbre in your vocal but ultimately it's yours and a good one.

Nice!
