Hi John--I really enjoyed watching your new video for "Lazy Summer". You really captured the essence of the song (no cares in the world). What a great, carefree song!

Thank you, Jeana! I guess I'm catching up 20 years later where a video must accompany a song. I have to say that I had a lot of fun putting it together and I'd like to do some more. The challenging thing is finding the royalty-free clips that don't cost anything.

Just watched the video--damn is that stick footage? It's all quite GREAT John kudos!!
And you know me, I always balance these thoughts from a dif point of view--ONLY thing that seemed outta place were too many cats! Yes I know you love them! The first one fit nicely, the others seemed a bit forced...
That said, very impressive and as you know don't impress easily!
Kudos my friend!

Thank you very much, Warren. Yes, those are stock footages. I found them off of sites that give them away royalty free. The second cat is the one I'd like to break up into smaller sections with different subjects. It's hard to be picky when you're looking around at freebies. Otherwise, the cats stay. Meeee-yowwwwww!

John did do a nice job on the redo!! You do sound great bud, only thing I would have suggested is some of the BG instrumentation needs to come down a tad, and your vocal UP a tad...but that's just my opinion,
it's 100% + better, nice work by all.
Peace,
Warren

Excellent, Warren buddy! You are very much deserving. I can't remember if it was Casey Kasem or Billboard itself that said the very best of songwriters will hit #1, even after a long wait. It's proof of making it there on your solid songwriting skills alone and not on what's chic, or glitz, expensive studio tricks, or fads. You've always written great songs and the charts (that none of us understand) couldn't stop you. I'm proud to see you there!

Hey, master music maker: again a great job on "Letter to the Lord" and "You Met Godot." (Everybody click on those and listen!) Many thanks for the stars and your enjoyment of "The Most of Nothing." That one's on my list for a remix, too, but that's so early 70s I think it's down the road. It was an interesting song to write because the feel of it sounded like something Graham Nash would do, but I knew I had the right melody for it. John

Hi Warren, thanks for listening to my new song and the stars. As you may have seen it is not finished yet I'm kind of putting it up for Feedback. Any thing you notice that needs improvement or any feedback? The keyboardist was sick and he's going to come back and put the keyboards in plus maybe some more vocal harmonies and then final touches by the producer. The goal of this version is to make a more marketable version hopefully for a sink placement

Hi Randall,
Well I sent you a Bjam email, suggestion on that last verse before the outro, I'd cut totally, but on 2nd thought would just cut the lines by 1/2, use the last 1/2 would be my suggestion, so then you'd have a "super outro"...
I've used that technique before and it gets the listener to the end, without hampering the lyrical meaning, and possibly more marketable as a 2+ minute tune vs. a 3+ minute tune.
Let me listen to the tune for the second time and if I can hear obvious instrument adds I'll let you know either way via Bjam email...
All the best,
Warren

Warren, You brought back memories of my 19 year old husband that was drafted in 1965...3 months after we were married... only by the grace of god did he not have to fight, he was shipped to Germany were he repaired the Huey instrument panels that had been shot up in Nam, we did not know soldiers were being booed when they returned.... I was ever so proud of him... I keep a green light burning in my window to thank all veterans for their service... I, as a wife of a vet, I never understand sending children into war... 18-19 year olds are children and sent into fight old mens wars.... Your song is so spot on for so many vets...thank you!

Oh my ma'am, you have not only made my day, but your comment and thoughts make this songwriter so happy I tackled the subject! You are so right, and I'm glad your husband had a job that didn't require the worst part of that and other "conflicts "!! My brother and I are 13 months apart, we had to participate in that damn lottery, where 90 or less were drafted in--well my number was 286 I believe and he 300+, certainly dumb luck for 2 kids that growing up didn't have any...
May you stay safe! Hell, not my day--you made my month!

That will take cooperation, maturity, independent reasonable thinking, discarding archaic, selfish, and destructive attitudes, and replacing them with peaceful resolutions. That's beyond the scope of so many people. Yet something instinctively and naturally keeps those of us with those ideals striving for the peace and sanity that the entire earth desperately needs.

Hey John, did I get your latest "melody line" post correct on your page? Leaving out the melody line is a REQUIREMENT for many library submissions, ALTS often can be just the bass, just the lead guitar, just the drums (if good enough) etc. And you start the ALT at the same ZERO point, so in a 3:22 song, and if your lead guitar comes in at 1:24, there is just silence until then...yes it's baffling to me, but rarely have any of my successful airplay included more than SECONDS, not minutes...it's just the way libraries work most of the time...of course it is GREAT when a minute or more is used, and super great when an actual damn SONG is used...which I am still waiting for...
hugs,

This could be a great thread of information if anyone else would like to join. I'd like to know more about it! I have read that an instrumental version is a really good idea to accompany a song with. I've been taking a guess that an unobtrusive melody line would work very well in an instrumental as it would make the instrumental recognizable and they could pick out any section that they would like to. I would make the instrumental much shorter than the actual song. Whenever I have listened to instrumental versions on the screen, I could easily make out what the song was because there was a melody line included. So I'm guessing there's a lot more about the libraries that I haven't heard about. You have some really good and interesting experience with it. Any more insights?
Hugs,
JW
