Hey All.

I’ve been working on this tune with Magne Kolstad and we could use your help. I originally did the vocal to the backing tracking you hear as the second song on the playlist. I sent Magne the vocals and then he completely changed the backing track to what you hear as number 1 on the playlist.

Now, we really like both of them so we were wondering which one you think is more syncable.

Thanks for listening.

Hi John, I hate to step in the middle of a production tug-of-war but since you asked, I find the 2nd mix to be more engaging and warm, the first track on the play list didn't capture my attention.

Hope this helps!

Jay :)

FWIW: liking the textures and dynamics of #2. Even still - I was expecting a bigger build/hit for the Verse beginning around :59... maybe just some bottom end/bass - brushes/drums?
2 pennies to rub together. :? :) Guess that means I sorta agree with Jay's comment.

I like the instrumental arrangement better on track 1, but I like the vocal arrangement better on track 2. Perhaps a track 3 is in order? Good luck!

Hi John

I think both songs are great, but I agree with the others that the second version to my ears is the more pleasing one. Nice arrangement, I hope that helps.

track 1 with me for sure. however i think it needs to build more on the chorus, it sounds a bit flat and monotonous the way it is now, both the arrangement and the melody, there's no lift. a melody popped into my head when i heard it. if you send me the bed i can put it on and send it back to if you wanna hear. is magne kolstad a norwegian? i'm from norway ;)
