I agree with ROG: good song, well mixed and great vocals.
Everything worked well with the images and produced an enjoyable end product.

Hi Danny,

I remember reading in a recent post of yours that these days you're starting to feel more like you're getting the hang of being a songwriter. In my opinion, this song clearly shows that you are indeed a competent songwriter. Moreover you're an equally competent arranger and mixer and an excellent performer. You're way way past merely "getting the hang of it"!

This is a great composition. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing it. Having a slide show to watch while I listened was the proverbial icing on the cake. Sorry I can't type more but I'm feeling a very strong urge to go back and listen to it again.

All the best,
Noel

90db . . . Thanks for the listen and nice comment. Re: dancing, especially these days I truly believe anything goes . . . what's the old saying, dance like no one is watching? I guess that is a great goal, that I too have not mastered. I will sit on stage with you grazing on the gumbo and boiled seafood, heck I'll even buy the beer!

boem, Don and rsdean . . . thank you so much for the time to listen and the wonderful comments.

Noel . . . what can I say in return after reading your wonderful comments other than the check is in the mail. One caveat it will be you who will have to tell Mario I spent my cannoli money as a reward for your nice comments.

You guys made my day!

Later,

Great song Danny, loved it. The guitar work was stellar. One phrase I would change where said after jambalaya I would say crawfish pie. Gives a shout back to ole hank.

Robh, it was actually in there for weeks but did not make the final cut. My 1st thought was (like you) everyone would sing that line automatically because of Hank's son. But at final cut I thought that using that strong a line from an iconic song would be a bit to presumptuous on my part. But just between us chickens when I do this song live, sometimes I throw in the Craw fish Pie.

Cubanpete, thanks for the listen and kind words.

Hey Danny,

I really enjoyed this song... and it reinforces my conviction that there is something extra in songs that are written by performing musicians. To my ears this is clearly the song of a man who has spent a lot of time in front of live audiences. Good job! I see why you get so many bookings!

Beautifully done, both the song and the video.
That kind of thing - a "family" event - has all but disappeared in the UK.
And dancing OUTSIDE and IN THE DAYLIGHT???!! Unthinkable!
We holidayed in Longboat Key, Florida in September and these kind of things are "normal". Made me very jealous.
More of the same please Sir.
Ian

Pat,

Thank you for the kind words and observation re: live gigging as that is exactly what I want to do with my recordings, record them as if they were played to a live audience. In fact 99% of the time before I put anything in the can I play it at least 5-6 time before my audiences, with many tweaks and often as many style and lyric changes as well during these trial runs. Many trials and then every once in the while I get it right.

In fact this tune started as a 180 BPM 16 Bar Train, moved to a R&B style and finally to the end result. But BIAB makes these trials so easy these days. Heck I'd hate to think how long a process like this would take 20 years ago.

sixchannel,

Thanks you for the kind words and time to listen. And yes the family dances are indeed a big part of Louisiana heritage, no matter what part of the world our Louisiana ancestors came from this seems to be a tradition with everyone. Whether it be BBQ in Nawlins, Craw-fish Boils in Acadiana or Shrimp and Crab Boils down where I come from I would say not one weekend passes without some of these family outings and food fest going on. We really like to eat down here!

Later,

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
