TRAGEDY

A song about the break-up of my friend's marriage.

Written and produced by Nigel Spiers

Featuring the amazing talent of Brian Harley on Guitar.
For you guitar aficionados - can you spot where Brian changes pickup on his Fender Telecaster during the lead break?
Bass - Simon Marks
Drums - Al Olds
Piano - Nigel Spiers
Vocals - Nigel Spiers

Unfortunately I didn't take a note of the BIAB Style used when I wrote this song but I do remember it was an all MIDI style.

Best Regards
Nigel

Nigel,

Like his one a lot—cool, jazzy feel with a great vocal. Love the sax and sweet harmonies. Terrific work on this. I am wondering if the vocals should sit back a it more in the mix—but if so, just a tad . . . see what others think. But regardless, sweet tune.

All my best,

Deej

Wow, this was terrific. Right up my alley. Great singing, great guitar. Like a busier Robert Cray. Excellent job, all.

Hi Folks,

Thanks for your kind comments and suggestions.
Yes - I agree - the vocals may be a touch loud in the mix.

Best Regards
Nigel

Great song - excellent groove. If I'm not mistaken, that change occurs around 02:12.

Hi Ghostgum,

Spot-on - at 2:12.
If you send me your address I'll send you a chocolate fish (do they still have those in Australia?).

Best Regards
Nigel

Hi Nigel,

It's easy to hear that you are no stranger to writing and producing excellent songs.

I really, really like this.

Everyone has done a great job!



All the best,
Noel

The song immediately announces itself a blues and delivers throughout.

Engaging vocal, excellent guitar chops. Clean mix.

The bit dodgey pronunciation of "tragendy" until 3:51 adds to the flavor. wink

Fun listen!

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

Hi David,

Well spotted - I wish I still had the original recording tracks so I could edit that out. I must have had a cold that day!

Best Regards
Nigel
