Very nice musical take of this pella! Sounds like you have sliced the voice and extended the whole thing adding many variations. Musically, it is a great job. But i remain skeptic about the sound.. but that’s another story ;o)

Thanks SOL! Glad I didn’t listen to your one first.
My apologies for the sound, I just couldn’t resist poking every ballad cliche into the listeners ears for this one..
Cheers

When I saw that you were ‘back in town’ I checked the latest remixes to see if you had already uploaded a new gem. But ofcourse, you were not that quick. ;-) But here it is and a very fine one if I may say so.

Thanks Sub, picked up heaps of inspiration and ideas in my short trip away. Good to be back :-)

I think I’m having a Tamla moment with this!

Great use of the samples which all seem to fit well together which is much easier to say than to do.

Thanks for a very smooth moment!

Thanks again for listening RT.
Listening to some old Stevie Wonder and (yes I admit), the Four Tops a few times lately has sort of rubbed off a little.

This does have a soothing feel. I like some of the piano parts and how towards the middle you build the song with more instruments to give the song a fuller sound! Good job!

Thanks, but I really should thank you for such an easy pella to work with.
I agree with LS. You go girl!
Your voice and pro delivery lends itself to so many different genres I think you will be a very busy girl. x

Great job surfer boy, consider panning the instruments out of her way and opening up the mix as its feeling a bit mono.

I considered doing it in this style but thought she might get the soul ballad treatment so i am in another place with it he he :-).

… back in my days, we didn’t have none of that newfangled stereoh! ;-)

Scombers back…

As smooth a peanut butter. Nice job bringing the other work into the mix also. Rebecca’s tones lay perfectly on your backing. You go girl :-)

although I poked fun at the LS, comment - a bit more stereo treatment would elevate this totally lovely traditional arrangement right over the top - or should that be “right in the tube”? ;-)

Massively impressive effort, but for some reason the reverb on the drums left me a little flat- and I do agree that things could be a little more opened up stereo-wise. Not trying to be Captain Nitpick, it’s just that such a nice arrangement deserves the best it can get! ;-)

Really nice arrangement. I’ll join the nitpick chorus but only because this is good enough to warrant it. I don’t know what they are yammering about, but the whole thing feels a little claustrophobic to me, so maybe I am agreeing with them. It feels to me like they are singing and playing under a blanket. Intimate? yes … ideal? perhaps not.

I don’t nit pick losers… in fact I don’t even finish listening to their mixes. So if I’m bothering to nit pick, it means I really care and I think it’s worth my terribly valuable time ;-).

Nice work Scomber :-).

Well for the discussion about mono or stereo, you get the points that your remix works even in “mono”.
Okay that_s for the technic, for the music I would say this is beautifully done, a very classical ballade and not necessary to mention, fine guitar playing…..;-)

It’s sad that music like this is not the “in” thing anymore. This reminds me of a Gladys Knight and the Pips track. “Neither one of us”. Good Job and also some valid advice from LS.
Excellent.

Peace! ;)-
