Another Rainy Day (w/Birdman Wayne)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Following on from the song 'Rainy Day' I posted for the MacJams Coffee House, Birdman Wayne suggested that a guitar solo would be a nice addition - there was a natural space in the song (for that purpose) - so, very kindly, Yeman (Birdman Wayne) sent me the two solos on this version. I added an couple of additional guitars and bass guitar - the drums are from Discrete Drums.

I'd like the thank Yeman for his fabulous contribution - he is a very gifted guitarist.

Missed the first one
But soooo glad I caught this one... this is PERFECT for a little coffee house number, as I always remember coming in out of the cold damp evenings in London to some warm little shop, and I can just imagine you in there playing this... it fits right in. I love the tune and lyrics, very smooth song-smithing here, and gorgeous singing and guitar playing. Of course, Yeman's guitar work in the middle was just perfect, skillful and tasteful. On headphones, it seemed that the rhythm guitar was off to the left a little too far, but that's about the only critique I have (perhaps do the double-the-track and spread-it trick to keep it centered but away from the vox and other guitar?)
ttfn,

Thank you
very much for listening and for your critique - the acoustic might be a wee be more left than I intended - I always try and keep instruments (other than bass and drums) away from the centre so the vocals can breathe - I'll take on-board what you've said and give it a try on future projects.

Thanks again, Peter.

Yeman's
solo is something else - he sent me 3 different ones - all sounded great to me - he is a real perfectionist and a pleasure to work with. Thanks for listening Mark.

Take Care

Hey Yeman...Those solos are spot-on-the-money and utterly sublime!

You ROCK my friend!

Be well!

Clean and clear
What nice additions to this great song - you have a big future Yeman!

Great song - especially excellent production. A suggestion on the mix: the RH acoustic tends to dominate a bit - maybe you could double the track and put it in the LH channel (slightly delayed to fill things out) - just a thought, and by no means essential.

I really like this one.

Thanks Neil
really spooky - I was just listening to your latest. Thanks as ever for your comments. Originally, this was just acoustic and vocals - I would have re-panned the acoustic a bit more central but I had bounced the track with the vocals (not sure why I did that) so I was stuck with that bit really - I guess it adds a bit of 'space' around the instruments - I must have been listening to too many 'very stereo' 60's albums!

Thanks again

Cool Peter and Yeman.

I always like to here how someone else's song can develop and grow.

Yeman your leads are REALLY nice! And Peter, the added production really fits the bill.

Thanks Vic
There are always so many ways a song can develop and change - When I recorded the Coffee House version, I used a drum track (I hate click tracks) - so in a way this is more as I was thinking - but I really wanted the Coffee House version to be kept simply acoustic. I could never have imagined Yeman adding such a wonderful solo though!

So, this is first for me - both collaborating and posting another version of a song.

Thanks for listening!

I am sorry Pete I missed this one. I am a very naughty girl :)
I loved your other one and also love this edition too. Great job.
You guys well done. I keep strumming away at my own guitar and am pleased to say I think I am making some slow but sure steady progress. lol
Great listen as usual.

Peace Dee xx

Fits nicely
I'm not sure if I've heard the original song, but I like this version. That guitar solo comes just at the right spot and it fits just right.

The arrangement sounds pretty good otherwise too.

Wow Peter and Birdman
Yeman is truly gifted, indeed. Love how you keep the British accent on the singing. A lot of English blokes tend to do the American thing on vocals.
Gloomy weather in England. Isn't that redundant?

I had a great time Peter. And a shout out to Yeman!

like this Carol - I never know which way a song will go but I think this is quite typical - I can't resist acoustic guitars - Yeman's solo is the icing on the cake here.

Thanks for listening.

Glad you have done this - it has made me realise what a strong song it is and a second playing really reinforces that.
Inspired solo from Yemen really works well and I really like the production too.

This was an excellent song in its original incarnation, and this is nothing but an improvement. Lovely singing, great guitar tone, and that solo is excellent, with some lovely melodic runs that perfectly complement the song. Excellent stuff. Nicely done to both of you. Peace.

One suggestion
I like this song a lot and I think the one thing is needs is a bass guitar coming in at the first chorus. That would really kick the chorus into high gear. Enjoyed it. Try the bass guitar, trust me.

crissew said 2868 days ago (December 16th, 2009)
Hmm
just notice you said in your description there is a bass guitar in there, in that case even easier, beef up the tone and bump it up and have it come in louder at the first chorus.
