    nice to see a band set up here on LM! I miss playing with other people and even though this style isn't a fave I admire this! Great to hear/see some fresh things up here

    Reply by 2Sisters

    Hello, thanks for the nice words. You're right, there's something special about playing in a band. Why don't you do it anymore? We also know that LM isn't necessarily the right place for the type of music we make. But I love talking to other musicians. Mainly because there are so many different people from different countries here at LM. Greetings Manuela

    My goodness, you make great songs like an assembly line. There is so much creativity and joy of playing in it ... you can't ignore it. I know I can't add anything that hasn't already been said, but I still have to comment. Big compliments to you and the other musicians. In addition to your beautiful voice (of course), I particularly liked the strings... wonderful.

    Hello Mickey,
    Well, there aren't that many songs. One song per month on average. There are musicians here who are much faster. We are currently in album production. It's a lot of fun, but also stressful at the same time. With so many very busy people getting rehearsal, studio dates is not that easy. You can only do that if you work effectively on several songs at the same time and make good use of the time you have together. Above all, it's a lot of work for my little sister, who is largely responsible for the musical arrangements. I admire Angelica for the calm, serenity and at the same time authority she exudes.
    Thank you for your kind words, best regards Manuela

    Beautiful country ballad, the strings really enhance the magic of the track. Manuela's beautiful vocals create a wonderful atmosphere for storytelling for the listener. All the musicians
    involved contributed excellent performances to the song. With great song writing and production made it a very enjoyable listening experience, for which I gave it an instant fav.

    Great job!

    Hello Dennel, thanks for your message, the fav. and of course your great praise, which I am very happy to pass on to everyone involved! I'm glad you like the song. There are still a few little things that we need to change before it's finally finished. But good things come to those who wait *Smile

    Nicely produced song, all the instruments are well placed and mixed, the backing vocals are nice, they add a lot. To me this is pop more than country but I guess it depends which country you are from. ;) I like the title and the lyrics tell a story which I also like. Well done folks!

    Hi Manuela
    This is again in one word beautiful.
    I think the music is so fairytale like and your voice sounds very beautiful here.
    Again very well done everyone.
    This is really top notch!!

    Ich schme mich zutiefst, dass ich Ihnen nicht geschrieben habe, weil hier so viel los ist.
    Aber ich habe dich wirklich nicht vergessen und werde dich bald etwas von mir hren lassen.

    Hallo Mom, ich freue mich wirklich sehr, dass dir der Song so gut gefaellt! Ich freue mich aber auch darurber, endlich ein Lebenszeichen von dir zu bekommen.
    Du musst dich nicht schmen, du musst es nur tun! *smile

    Hi Manuela. Sorry, I didn't hear the previous version, but this one blew me away. The full and well-balanced mix is the solid foundation which allowed your stellar vocals (which always brings on the big smile and nod), to shine with ease. You already know how I feel about your vocals. Also, tremendous performance from the team as always. Lastly, your ability to express your talent with your sister through multiple genres and own the genre is most admirable, big time. Great production and performance. Have an enjoyable and peaceful weekend.

    Hello Mark, thank you for your kind words! You know how much I value your opinion. But your praise belongs to the whole team. Without these excellent musicians, it would be very difficult to implement our ideas. We are really looking forward to our first album. Unfortunately, it will still take a while to complete.
    I hope you had a nice weekend. I wish you a good start into the new week. Greetings Manuela

    Country isn't really my thing, but your vocals are. Great stuff as always!

    Hello my friend, it doesn't matter if you don't like country music. Everyone has their own taste and prefers their own style of music and that's a good thing.
    Then just enjoy my voice *smile.

    Kind regards and good luck with your album

    Wow... Y'all always come straight out the gate with so much
    production savy. I love the vibrato in your voice, it's your
    signature sound for me. I can feel your connection to a song
    when your vibrato comes into play it's intense like you're in touch with your soul. To me all of your tracks are album ready, this one is without doubt a keeper. Cheers to you Manuela, and everyone involved in making this track.

    Great track.Faved.. PEACE...

    Thank you for your great compliment. I really appreciate that. But what most people here at LM don't realize is how long we actually work on a song, how long it takes from idea to execution to completion. Sometimes it's weeks, sometimes even months. It's all the nicer when you find out that you like the song. After all, applause is the artist's bread and butter! *smile
    In many songs there is actually a lot of me and also of the others involved. They aren't off-the-shelf songs (that's how they say *smile in Germany). I also know that here at LM we are actually wrong with our kind of music. But we still feel comfortable here.
    Greetings Manuela

    Well, another masterpiece of a track Manuella. I know it may be hard to believe, but I love some good country music. No one can tell a story like a country musician can. I agree with your comment to Zoot about not wanting to just convey a text with your voice. Country vocalists have a way of expressing words to where you can visualize the story being told as well as feel it. The country musician can have a song titled My Old Dirty Boots, and when they get done with it, you will know everything there is to know about Old Dirty Boots. Amaizing sound and arrangement and mastering. PEACE. T576 OUT.

    Hello my friend. Well masterpiece! There's still a long way to go, with a lot of work, before the song is ready to be released with our album. But it's great that he likes it at this stage.
    Why don't I think you like country music? I know many musicians who, apart from their own genre, also enjoy completely different music. I think that your own flexibility and versatility is important for your own individual advancement!
    Thank you for your great praise, best regards Manuela

    Most Listeners don't know how much comes to play with your creations.
    Bravo everyone involved! Great rhythm Manuela! Don't listen to country much but I feel like being around a campfire some marshmallows right now I don't know why sorry good song!

    Reply by 2Sisters

    Hello CC, I am very happy about your great praise! Especially since I know you're not a country fan.
    Did the marshmallows taste good? *smile

    Hello Manuela, I think to sing a slow tempo song like this would not be easy at all. But it sounds excellent, backing vox really complement your voice. Nice strings arrangement. It's a really good song that tells a convincing story. Production is awesome as usual. All the best, Chris.

    Reply by 2Sisters

    Hi Chris, you are right, this song is really hard to sing. I think that's because I don't just want to convey a text with my voice, but also an expression.
    Glad you like the song

    kind regards Manuela

    lovely country track, your vocal is right in the pocket Manuela, beautiful tone. great music from the band, acoustic guitar is so nice, Angelica your keys are delicate and soft and the drums are perfect in the right space sound wise, but the vocal is standout for me, excellent production and a great title top marks

    Reply by 2Sisters

    Hello Paul, thank you for your nice comment and high praise. I think it's great that you like the song so much. I'm not that satisfied with my singing yet, because I think I didn't hit the right note twice. But maybe I'm being too hard on myself *Smile.
    Greetings Manuela

Description : Here attached is a new country tune I put together using several loops I bought off a disk set. I call it 'Old Tyme Country' as it is close to being Bluegrass as well. (Bluegrass usually has a Mandoline, Fiddle and a 5-string Banjo, and a rhythm guitar at least).

This instrumental features no guitars or regular drums. Rhythm here is provided by a Dulcimer, a Shaker and a drum like instrument called a Djembe. (An instrument from Africa, looking like a tall Bongo drum)

An acoustic stand-up Bass is used along with a 4 string Banjo, and the Fiddle is the main instrument.
Put all these together and this is the sound you can have. Hope you'll like it.

Description : Hi ya,

Well, here is my latest country tune...called "Welcome to Nashville". It is an instrumental. Maybe someone will add vocals to it? Also I added a screenshot of the 'ProTools' program I used to put the song together so you can see what it looks like with in a software program as completed.

The song is uptempo featuring an acoustic guitar for rhythm, also an electric rhythm guitar doing more of a vamping sound to add in fill to the overall rhythm.

Also has lead guitar which is quite busy throughout, and Drums, Bass, fiddle and pedal steel round out the song.

Hope you like it.

Description : Just a simple country waltz featuring a number of instruments, and the main instrument...Pedal Steel guitar. Not an easy instrument to play and certainly not a cheap instrument to buy. Decent new ones start out at around $2,500, but like everything else, if you have the desire, 'you can do it'.
Drums, Fiddle are sample loops. Contains 2 rhythm with tremelo. Piano, and the usual Lead, Bass guitar.
Near the end.....they all play at once together.
