 Cheesy
Great to have another lyricist on board.
I'm up and ready to start this.
As soon as I have the 'bassless' version from Kara next week there'll be no holding me.

Hope it's not to much Texas truck driver, but thats what I got?

Excellent lyrics..

No such thing as too much Texas anything. Wink

Welcome aboard.

James works with Reaper in windows, Wyatt works with Auditon in windows, Kara works with Audacity in Linux (I don't know what his Windows DAW is), and I work with Ardour in Linux. Each of us sets up a session, and we post our tracks here. For this purpose, MP3 is not suitable because there are timing discrepancies, so if you can work with Ogg Vorbis, MonkeysAudio, or FLAC, please do. This way, each of us has a complete set of tracks that we can mix to our own taste, and compare production styles.

One good procedure can cure a dozen problems.   Cheesy

Kara, could we also have a BPM and an 8-beat click track intro, s'il vous plait?

Ok here's a take of my verses. No compression or effects so you can do your thing with them.
Oh and it's a mono track.

Is there a prefered bit rate for posted files? Ogg is about the only format of the suggested ones that I've used before, so if anyone perfers something else I may need some direction.

Nice work on the vocal action, Michael!  I'll plug it into Ardour as soon as we get a BPM from Kara.

Ogg Vorbis level 6 (I think that works out to 192 Kbits/sec) does a nice job for exchanging tracks.

I have some thoughts on the project I'd like to throw out. You guy's can kick the tires and see how it feels.
I was listening to what we have so far and kind of felt like the verses I added don't really match Oren's so i came up with an additional verse that I think is a lot closer to the kind of vibe that was in the original vocal? (maybe not). But i thought the song structure could be like this 2 verses bridge 2 verses and possibly repeat the last two?

Another dusty highway - Pounding pavement dawn to dawn
Another blue plate special - a coal black coffee to wash it down
But the thing that keeps me move'n - is just knowing your around

Keep your picture in my wallet - just to keep me straight
I keep it to remind me - when the hours getting late
The only thing that gets me through  - the thought of growing old with you

Another day has passed, my friend, Another sunset is going down,
And as my life goes on and on, And as the world keeps turning 'round
I feel you should know it is such a comfort, Just having you around."

You know we've seen some hard times,and the good times wer'nt that great.
But you always stood beside me - when the extras had to wait
It took me all this time to realize - what a blind man could see
I've had an angel in my pocket - growing old with me.


My be a little less truck driver and a little more George Jones? Anybody got a pedal steel handy?
Does it seems like a complete song now?

Another option would be to take Oren's verse as the chours and repeat it twice and on the second pass change the last line to
"You know I find such comfort just growing old with you"

Let me know if I'm getting ahead of myself here or being to forward. I am excited about this as it's been a long time since I've worked with anyone or had people to bounce ideas off of. I've got pretty thick skin so dont hold back.
Thanks guy's

Enthusiasm is never out of style around here, Michael... Wink

I like what you've done. Let's wait for further lyrical additions from any late-comers, then paste it all together and call it "patchwork" blues.
   Beautiful - a new genre (and who's going to argue... the style is original to us Cool)
I can do pedal steel if it will add to the vibe....

(my Linux computer just had a hard-drive meltdown, so I need a couple of days to re-group)

Cool this is getting started Cool

Let's fix the song structure as proposed.
Verse 12 bars
Verse 12 bars
Chorus (bridge)
Verse 12 bars
Verse 12 bars
Repeat verse 12 bars

is this ok ?

What about the chorus, how long ? 8 or 12 bars, same chords or should we change the key ?  to what ? Suggestions?

As soon as we agree on this, I'll lay down the musical track. Since we have a lot of musicians here, I propose I put down only drums and piano which lets room for others, ok ?

And welcome aboard Michael Cool

Lovely!! Drums and piano would supply structure for the rest of us...

For the chorus/bridge, how about 8 bars, like this:
G-D-A-A
G-D-A-A
G-D-A-A
G-D-E-E
Weird, I know, but... wOO

I'm good with wherever you guys want to take this.

I have a couple guitar tracks I been sittin' on,
but I'd rather hear it all up with the vocals installed,
and respond to that.

You only get old once,

Cool

Well, one thing for sure, it ain't funny to play keyboard without a bass line... I had to imagine the bass playing in my head at the same time of playing the keyboard  Roll Eyes

This will be the structure of the song :
Intro
Verse
Verse
Chorus
Verse
Verse
Chorus
Verse (closing)
End

BPM is 60 and there a litle count-in to syncronise your tracks.

It's all yours now  Cool

Here is a shot of Ardour set up for 60bpm, Kara's drum/piano track loaded, and Michael's vocal track synced to fit. Now I can insert the real-time effects for each track, and edit the vocals to place them in their appropriate location.

Cool Oren, allways nice to see a Linux DAW in action  Cool
You forgot to setup the markers of the sections  Grin

Well, I guess first thing we need now is a bass track, I think James will handle that  Cool
