Hi Randy, Thanks for the comments on my Piano Song! Great observations. Interestingly, it was an actual acoustic grand piano I recorded with an SM58 in my bedroom. I think your comments were right on point! Thanks for taking the time. Paul Pierce

Hi Paul, Very nice piece. Your comment to me facilitated my being able to listen to your other music. What a treat, you have some real talent my friend. Not only great tunes but real instruments and real players...pedal steel... Im green with envy.

Hi Randy, thanks for a kind review of New Empire. Good comments, I'm grateful for any feedback.
I hadn't meant to enable this particular version for review because it's a condensed version for a specific opportunity. A lot of the variation is missing compared to the original (just titled Empire) you may find that has more dynamic and more variation.

Thanks again,
Bob

Hi Randy--I listened to "The Procession". Very beautiful! Thanks for your review of "Dora's Lullaby". I wish I had string sounds like you do, yours are very realistic. I appreciate your suggestions, I need to see if I can find a better piano sound. I'm not sure what a click-track is, I use audio tracks and record live, but I see what you mean about the tempo.

Howdy... thanks for your kind comments. I've been listening to a number of your other pieces on Broadjam. I just love your melodic sense... I really feel something when I listen, and isn't that the point...? All I meant by the term click track is that I wanted the piece to be able to slow down, and even stop in certain areas, and maybe even slightly speed up in others. For example using the counter on the broadjam player, at about 19-20 (right after you did the intro where you stated that beautiful melody) I could hear full strings come in to state the melody with the piano then starkly disappear by 28. At about 52 the tempo just slow to a stop and pause just before you go back to the main melody.

Of course these are only my opinions, so they dont mean much, but I think this piece could be excellent for a soundtrack.

Great suggestions worth trying. I get stuck in a rut how I record, but mixing things up can only improve my process. Thank you!


Randy Calligan posted over 30 days ago


As I always say, you either have the talent and originality or you don't, the rest is just window dressing... you have all the important stuff covered. Recording and overcoming ruts are what we all struggle with. If you ever have a piece of music that you are stumped on and want to try co-writing with someone, I'd be honored.

Hey Randy thank you for your review of my instrumental alt I've titled Final Minute Alone...I did chop the heck out of it, and my producer at the time (2012) didn't have many cello programs, so your comments are spot on! This is just a sliver of my vocal I think is still on my page, kinda powerful stuff, serious, etc (not that my vocal is anything splendid...but you might want to give it a whirl, it's titled You're Not Alone....
Spot on review, and thanks for listening!

Well wait, I took the vocal down it seems, I've reloaded it--don't know why I did that, must have been all over the planet I guess...LOL

I love them all!! You have an amazing talent. I am not worthy :)
My life has changed immensely. Mother and wife have both passed. Think of you often, just never took the time to search for your music. I still live by music just can't express it like you. Thanks for letting me listen, Randy.

Oh My Gosh Nelson, what a pleasant surprise hearing from you, but at the same time I am shocked. I heard about your mom and was quite saddened by it as I always liked your mom a lot. She was always so animated and up... supplying us with food for a little kid adventures. But your wife..? What happened? That's a shock.

Dear Randy, just listened to all three of your newest compositions and they are absolutely Beautiful!! Gave you 5 Stars & Likes on them all. Are you playing all those instruments or are you using samples & loops. Whatever you are doing, the tunes are magnificent Sir! Great Job, very impressed with your musical talent!!
Happy Trails,

Howdy... Thanks again for the positive affirmations. I don't use loops, however these are all virtual instruments that I play one at a time. Most everything in the classical realm that I write come from pieces that play in my head, so I'm not always sure I should take credit for them.

I had a chance to listen to your music as well, and I am very impressed. Playing, production and writing are all top notch...

Hey Randy, thanks for that info! What equipment/App do you use to compose your wonderful songs??
Happy Holidays,
The Corey's
Oh.........Glad you enjoyed some of our songs!!


Randy Calligan posted over 30 days ago


For the Orchestral type stuff I use mainly spitfire, VSL, Orchestral tools, and the like. Presently using Logic Pro X but hate it, switching to Cubase.

How about you?


Margie & Art Corey posted over 30 days ago


Hey Randy, We use Studio One & Band-In-A-Box. But recently we tried to get our songs released on Tune-Core for world wide digital distribution and were rejected! They detected samples from BIABox in our tunes. We start our songs in either BIABox Samples or Samples from Studio One and then add live Musicians to the songs!
Anyway, not to happy with this blockage from companies that say..........Use Our Apps to write your songs with, then cry fowl, if you use some of their song files!! For us...it's usually the Drums or Bass that we employ!! But that's gonna stop for sure!! We are returning to those songs, that we submitted to Tune-Core and replacing them with Live Parts!!!
Also, can you have a quick view of our Video and tell us if you think this video is to violent?? One of our relatives at Christmas said that is was too violent and that the theme of our song didn't go with the footage that we used in the video?? The link is below on U-Tube.......

Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgG Lrpo3fJY

Hope you will give our video a view, really would like your take on our song & Video???

Happy Holidays.

couldnt get the link to the video to work. Not sure what to tell you on the other... sometimes I think producers just pull any reason out of a hat rather than just saying the piece doesnt fit what they are looking for. I pounded the pavement in the 80s, practically killed myself doing and redoing things, and in the end I dont think they ever intended to do anything in the first place. I more or less just do this for fun nowadays... got burned out pursuing it as a job. I guess I just assumed I dont have the talent so I switched my gears to enjoying it instead.


Margie & Art Corey posted over 30 days ago


Randy, probably the best outlook to staying positive with the music!! We are kind of in the same Camp as you, we just write tunes for ourselves and if people enjoy the material, all is good!!
Happy Trails........

Randy, try this U-tube connection again! I just tried it and it worked! Copy & Paste to the Internet and see if it works??
