3 for 3 in 3 diff genres (w help from the Forums!)

Post by JohnnyP » Tue Jun 23, 2020 3:52 pm

Hey TAXI Folks,
A certain "Critical" TAXI friendly library that gets killer placements just emailed that they've accepted all of my latest submissions.

Two cool things about this (to me anyway lol)! One- the songs we're all different genres- "modern male singer songwriter", "female pop/Urban-pop advertising" and "male blues rock" that I produced and hired vocalists to sing.

But the coolest thing is the singer songwriter song was one I posted on the the "Peer To Peer" section of the TAXI Forum back when I first wrote it. I got some great feedback from Ethan Okamura, Tom Hoy, Tom McCormack, Peter Rahill and I think Dan Weber. If I forgot anyone I'm sorry. All of those TAXI members offered suggestions that I seriously considered. Thanks to all of you for helping me out!

here's a link to the S-songwriter song.

The TAXI Forums rock! Best, John

You forgot:
"Fortunately, after seriously considering their suggestions - I opted to leave it alone; which worked out best...
cause that's the track that got placed. You guys helped a ton by making the mistakes for me.
It's been said 'you learn from your mistakes.'... but a wiser man said, '...but learning from THE OTHER GUYS' mistake hurts way less!"

Good report, John. :? 8-) :P

Lol Peter! Seriously I took a bunch of the advice offered and ran “with it” not “from it”!
Off the top my head- “ make it less wordy”, “shorten the bridge” “cut down on the guitar string squeak” Etc. you guys helped a lot!

Congrats John! That is a big win to get 3 accepted at once, especially from that " certain " library ;) I'm grateful that my name is among those who helped you in putting the song together. " A Boy Can Dream" has got that free spirit feeling like Johnny Orland's song " See You ". Very nice. Keep up the great work!
