Description
Another BR-8 file, mixed and messed with in GarageBand. Once again, with my former partner Phyllis on vocals...

Having presented something more produced last time, this time we have a simpler acoustic tune: just acoustic guitars and vocals.

The song itself is one of several I've written that one could sing on a grateful morning to either one's loved one or to one's God/Nature/Universe, or whatever combination of the two seems good to you. At its heart it's a gratitude song. And sometimes, in a moment of grace, one can be grateful without knowing precisely where that gratitude needs to go...

I hope one day to do a more polished and pristine version, without finger noise and whatnot, but I rather like this homespun rendition...

Thanks for all the support and feedback on the last one. Hope you like this as well.

P.S. On my set-up, this sounds good on headphones...

Lyrics
Every Day Another Reason


I've got a rosebush in the garden
Its name is Tuscan Glory
I've got the radio beside me
Someone singing 'Darlin' Corey'
I've got so much stuff, I can't believe it's
true
And every day another reason
Every day another reason
Every day another reason to love you

I've got a golden sun at morning
Wakes me up before I'm ready
I've got the secret of good coffee
And that helps to make me steady
I've got so much stuff, I don't know what
to do
And every day another reason
Every day another reason
Every day another reason to love you

Every day another reason
To feel my heart revive
To know my love's in season
To be glad that I'm alive
Every day another reason
Every day another rhyme
Just to know my love's in season
And my heart woke up in time

I've got a copper moon to sing to
It's a half degree of sky
Like a window into heaven
Or a penny on the fly
I've got good fortune running through
and through
And every day another reason
Every day another reason
Every day another reason to love you

lovely
what a nice song! Almost Bob Dylan in the beginning.

wonderful! What is that great coffee secret!

Ed Hannifin said 4324 days ago (July 24th, 2005)
lovely
Thank you!

Trouble about the coffee secret claim is that I can't remember...I think it has
something to do with starting with really good coffee from the get-go...I used
to get Kenya AA, Mocha Mattari, Tanzanian Peaberry from the Coffee
Connection in Harvard Square...that was always a good start...start with clear
cold water...bring to a rolling boil...prepare with either a Melior or drip style
with a single serving Melitta filter...get the grounds wet with boiling water
while the water continues on the boil...count to ten...then add the rest of the
water...use cream or half and half...And a lot of the secret was probably my
old, long-gone coffee measure...Part of the secret being to make it strong,
but not so strong as to be ridiculous...

Weirdly enough, after some years in which my love of coffee popped into a
number of songs, I have lately been drinking really good tea...

Some people are coffee people, some are tea people. I'm a both people. Go
figure.

After all that, glad you enjoyed the song. It's one of the ones of mine that I
like the best for some reason...

Well, yeah, bizarre, I get it about the crockle humper thing, but I don't think
you're relating to the intentionality, and I mean, if I can say this about myself,
the sheer artistry that comes into play with the tuna AND the Twinkies...forget
the pickle question, that's sort of a red herring...Hmm...red herring...tuna...I feel
we're fishing here...how does it seem to you?...

I like this
Your voice sounds quite nice and Phyllis is a great blend.
This is a terrific song to hear.
I am quite pleased of your talents, you are a nice addition to
MJ.
Nice fingerpicking, and good recording of it as well.
Thanks for sharing

I'm glad you like the tune, mr. tiler. I'm also glad you were okay with the pretty
basic fingerpicking. Thanks for listening.

ledebutant said 4324 days ago (July 25th, 2005)
I'm glad I put on my headphones...
...because I missed Ed's WFPCG Stool the first time around. Does he know Poppy's dog tags, by any chance and/or would he be interested in collaborating with them?

Joking aside, the production sounds much tighter on the headphones. Through my crapulent eMac speakers, the vocal seemed to float about the guitar, but through my iPod phones it's just perfect.

This song just takes me back to 70's and the road trips we used to take in my dad's wood-paneled Plymouth station wagon. It brings to mind dozing off in the back seat, dappled sun coming through the leaves as we laze along the road. Very nice again, Ed.

Whatever happened to Phyllis? She's perfect for your music. Get her some good coffee and put her in front of a mic.

I've listened to this four times now. I suppose that makes it download time, especially since I'm a coffee and tea person, myself.



Ed Hannifin said 4323 days ago (July 25th, 2005)
I'm glad I put on my headphones...
Well, my guitar stool isn't much of a performer, being of a shy and introverted
disposition, but it does do some limited studio work...So, sure, for that
"Poppy's dog tags" solo album...

And I'm glad you've confirmed my take on the mix. It's just one of those ones
that sounds nice in headphones. For whatever reason...Shows up all the
mistakes and rough spots and noises, but it also does something good for
it...

As to Plymouth station wagons in the Seventies...Been there...As eldest in the
family, my chosen spot was the fold-up seat in "the way-back" that faced
backwards...Good for musing and dreaming on the long trips...

As for Phyllis...she's hard to get hold of these days...She lives a long way
away, up in Maine, and I don't see her as much as I might...I'm trying to
convince her to buy a Mac if she doesn't have one, and do some of this...She
would blow people away...She's an exceptional songwriter, great vocalist, and
then she plays guitar, piano, I think she could get around on the cello...

Thanks again, ledebutant, for giving this the deep listen. Your comments are
thoughtful and on target as always...

Off for coffee...or tea...and off to the job...

(Hey, one of the things I didn't realize until I posted a song was this whole 45
seconds between replies thing....Doesn't sound like much...but it makes the
reply process a bit more work, doesn't it?...)

Cori Ander said 4324 days ago (July 25th, 2005)
Soo lovely!
A beautiful soothing song! Very well performed! And you
are such a good singer!

I think the world need this kind of friendliness that
permeate your music! Your song mediate peace and trust.
That is a great gift to the world!

A minor issue would be that I would have preffered to
compress the guitar somewhat less. I think acoustic guitar
generally need compressor, but at some amount it starts
sounding a little strange.

PS... I feel symphaty for the "choice of" creaking stool.
Talkin about myself ... how come I spend a lot effort
making tunes, rehearsing and trying to get good
recording gear, and then simply keep forgetting to
manage a non-creaking sitting environment? (Thanks for
the reminder). DS.
Check out my latest song called O store Gud
Ed Hannifin said 4323 days ago (July 25th, 2005)
Soo lovely!
Cori, I'm glad you like the friendliness...as I get older I get less interested in
"attitude music" generally, although I must admit that I have a gentle little
piece coming along that more or less reeks of attitude...

Funny thing about compression...I THINK I know what you mean...this song
was worked on in several formats, at all different times, and I think bits of
compression--and reverb--in small amounts may have added up as
overdubs and remixes accumulated. I put it away for a long time because I
couldn't match a previous version Phyllis and I did on a Yamaha 4-track.
Somehow, that had THE VOCAL SOUND. It was great. Just this past weekend I
got to playing with the compressors available in GarageBand, and started
getting what I took to be a good vocal mix again. Very exciting. But part of
that may have been that I compressed the whole mix one more time, and that
may be what you're hearing. It brings up, say, the thump of my thumb on the
E string, or the woody reverb sound...and that may also come from the guitar
being actually three different tracks of guitar trying to sound like one...

I think creaking chairs and stools, floorboards, and the popping and crackling
of woodfires can be great. I used to get all flustered about the smallest
sounds. Now I kind of like the sounds of life in the space in which I live.
Except the dog, and the air conditioner. Those are still not acceptable....

I call the attention of all chair and stool creak lovers to the opening of CSN's
"Helplessly Hoping". Listen carefully over good headphones. Not only is this a
wonderful "natural" mix, with each singer nicely placed in the sound field, but
Stephen Stills' chair is creaking...

I rest my case.

Easy rollin' folk tune
Very nice track Ejh,to my ears a bit reminiscent of Gene
Clarke (who I love!). Lovely female harmonies on the
chorus... Nice to see the Boss BR-8 in use!
Keep them coming

Easy rollin' folk tune
All my life I've sweated and toiled over a hot notebook, blasted by the searing
heat of the desert plains, risking all to wrestle with my cold-fusion-powered
SM-57, all so that one day, one day when I'm not TOO old, someone
somewhere will compare me with Gene Clark!

Wow. Thank you. Thank you for any portion of that comparison that you
meant. I'm a great Gene Clark fan. He's got his own Playlist in MY iTunes
Library...Mostly Gene with the Byrds, but what's wrong with that?...

How many times in a day can my day be made?

Peter Greenstone said 4324 days ago (July 25th, 2005)
beautiful
Wonderful lyrics, for starts. What a lovely line, "Every day
another reason to love you". The verses put the sentiment
of that line in context very nicely. I really like the sound
of your voice. It's like a cross between a classic country
music voice and a more contemporary folk rock voice.
And as I've said before, your voice and Phyllis's
compliment earch other's really well. Very nice guitar
playing too.

The overall sound quality is full and clear though there is
a bit of noise in there. Personally, I think I'd go with a
dryer mix (less reverb). Of course, it's possible that after
trying that that I'd find I liked it more with the reverb. But
it's something I'd try because I think it would sound more
intimate and maybe more contemporary.

Lovely song.

beautiful
Peter, since you are one of my favorite vocalists and lyricists here, when you
have kind words to say about my voice or lyrics, I'm pretty happy. Is there an
emoticon of a puppy wagging its tail?

I think I know what you mean about the reverb question, and yes, it still is a
question to me. There are some of my favorite tracks that are VERY dry, such
as some mid-period Beatles and early Eagles, where there is compression and
a dry, up front vocal, and I like that...and then there are others among my
favorite tracks that are either drenched in reverb, or have a subtle but all-
pervading reverb that shows up mostly on headphones...

A lot of it comes down to my confidence about my voice.

On THIS track, the reverb question is also in there with Cori's comment about
the compression...I always forget, for instance, that the BR-8 adds just the
tiniest bit of reverb to every track automatically...part of the make-it-easy-
to-record thing...and again, as I add a little reverb here, or, more likely, a bit
of compression there, the reverb comes forward, and with each bounce or
mix there's a little more.

The ultimate solution, as I get more skilled, will of course be to start
everything in the Mac, in either GB2, Logic Express or PTLE, keep it clean,
clean, clean, and actually have some choices at the end of the process.

Thanks as always for your comments. As you see, they are always well
considered, on target, and they always get me thinking...

This song, too, is another reason
Such a wonderfully balanced folk tune. And your delivery is
so honest, so well done, with wonderful female folk backing
vocals adding yet another kind of balance to the track. This
is what makes folk music so great, one of my true loves.
Another reason, this song.

Well, Tobin, you seem to just get it about this song, or about what I was hoping
for with this song. Thanks again for your kind comments. I continue to be
bowled over by When You Left...

In your music and in any of the numerous ways that I have had the pleasure of running accross your words of choice, I am always left pondering...what a nice guy...

This is my first opportunity to hear your music and I am not at all surprised to hear that it is SIMPLY, perfect. The lyrics, vocals and melody are all just avwonderful. Nice guitar work and the song as a whole, is nicely structured.
You have left A very nice dance of words playing inside my head.... Thank you

secrets of happiness
are sometimes revealed in songs on this website. Bronco
has done it with "I'm a Happy Guy." This song, I believe,
contains the real secret of happiness: gratitude. As I listen
to this, I consider it a prayer of the finest sort. One that
we are allowed to listen in on and participate.

Fine work, Ed. Worthy of someone hovering at the top of
TLTSNBN (The List That Shall Not Be Named.)

p.s. again, nice harmonies from Phyllis.

secrets of happiness
Well, I had to go off and visit "Happy Guy"...there's a fun song...

I think you're right about gratitude...I think that's one name for or one facet
of the Big Good Feeling that we sometimes call 'peace', sometimes call 'love',
sometimes call 'happiness'...Gratitude is a great way to all of it, not that one
can 'do' gratitude by sheer willpower...As Cydniko points out, it's kind of
grace-and-gratitude...

I continue be pleased that you like the "total package" of the song...I'm very
aware that my two offerings so far are not "cleaned up" the way some
productions here are...I continue to be grateful that folks are getting past the
rough trappings of whatever I've done here and right to the song at the heart
of it all...There's a tremendous good will here that is heartening,
encouraging...

Thanks for all your support, under all your guises, ledebuTOM....

Thanks, again, Mystified, for getting to the heart of the song. In this context, "joy in simplicity" might be a decent synonym for "gratitude"...

The quality of the feedback that I'm getting really leaves me feeling that what I hoped and intended with this song is really coming through...

Classic folk song...
Wonderful vocals in this sweet tune. The "every day
another reason" is a great hook that I found myself
singing along with. I could have easily envisioned
listening to this on the radio back in the sixties when the AM dial had all kinds of music, often on the same
station.
Your guitar playing is exceptional as well.

hour here at work, so... I thought it best to come back here and
download this baby and have it readily available for my listening
pleasure. Thanks again for this sweet tune.

Ed Hannifin said 4322 days ago (July 26th, 2005)
Classic folk song...
I couldn't hear anything better than that!

Just from the standpoint of pure songcraft, having a hook--and a song--that stays in folks' heads and that they sing or hum as they go about their lives, is just exactly what I'm going for.

I have this dream of one day hearing one of my songs being sung around a campfire by people I don't know...Like "Teach Your Children" or "Morning Has Broken" or "This Land Is Your Land"...some people would scorn that, but I would be very happy...

And as regards the second post, I just had this same experience with ledebutant's In The Garden...had to go back to it earlier today...

That, to me, is when a song is a song, and when a song also becomes a "folk song"; it sort of picks up and travels on its own...

I hope it continues to give you pleasure. (I know not every song that gets stuck in my head is one I would have chosen to stay there...)

Thanks for listening, and for coming back! This means a lot to me.

As to the, uh, artwork question. Um. You'll have to speak to my artistic advisor.

to the other thing, but I am open to your suggestions and expertise, as always.

I so agree
with somebody's comment that it takes you back to the 70's

lovely innocence about it, and very easy on the ears. Good
lyrics and overall feel. Keep up these great tunes Ed!

This is good folk music. The guitar playing is very clean I

maintains, and ends very well.

perfect
seasoned writing... the bridge arrives just when the ears are ready...
lyrics are great "copper moon" penny on the fly... this is the stuff I
love... production works well, everhthing is ballanced and clear... but
your voice shines on this peice.. your tone quality is great, your voice
has full rich lows without being to bassy, while still ful in the mid and
in the highs... I think yours is an easy voice to record

perfect
Scott, thank you for checking out this song. I did think this'd be one of the
ones
that might appeal to you...

I'm glad you like how my voice sounds here. I don't think of my voice AT ALL
as
easy to record. I do have a little bit of a furry low tone when I can find it, but
it's
not like there's a lot of range or classic vocal quality....

I'm also really glad that you like the writing. I am rather proud of that. I do
think this is one of the good ones...

Thanks again for listening and commenting. I do appreciate it greatly...

Another Reason
" hope one day to do a more polished and pristine version, without finger
noise and whatnot,"

I LOVE hearing a guitarist's fingers slide on the strings. It puts me right in
the space with the artist. What a great song! It's gorgeous! Thanks so
much!

Well then. The finger noise stays. Creaky chair, too. Coming from someone with
songwriting and singing chops such as yours, I'll take the praise for the song
very seriously and gratefully. Thanks, stacy!

And yet again...
Thank you for listening, and leaving such enthusiastic comments...

I'm pleased you like the lyrics, and the simple guitar.... and the 'liner notes'...

Yeah, I love morning coffee AND morning tea... depends on the morning... I just found my old Gevalia kaffe coffee maker and brought it into my office... So now I can offer both sorts of hospitality... I'm right with you on the matter of most American coffee...

I hope that some day this WILL make it to a CD, in some form...
