    Hello fellow MLR’ers, would appreciate any feedback on this song — production, instrumentation, arrangement.

    Soundalike would be “Sesame Street” style acoustic family/kids music.

    Keywords: kids, harmonica, banjo, fun, acoustic, group, accordion, childhood, together, outdoors, backyard.

    Description: Fun and frisky, this instrumental acoustic tune evokes simplicity, kids, family warmth and love using acoustic guitar, banjo and accordion.

    So my supplement to library income is as a freelance songwriter for Macmillan Educational Publishing. I’ve written hundreds of children’s songs used in dozens of their courses designed to teach English as a second language.

    Yours has the happy vibe needed for the genre. I think a lot of the track is MIDI instruments? Over the years I’ve purchased a kids toy accordion, harmonicas, kazoo, a banjo, recorders and all kinds of percussion. Don’t be afraid to set up a microphone and record these instruments live. It can really add another dimension.

    Hi Michael, thanks for the “happy vibe” compliment…yes, only the guitars and basses are live, banjo and accordion are midi … I’ve been getting into recording live percussion lately, and that’s a good suggestion — stocking up on noise making percussion.
