Thank you Charlie and Bob. Great to get raps for the overall sound. It wasn't an easy mix.

Hey guys, thanks for your comments. I'll admit I was (am) a little nervous about how the lyrics in this song might go down, people's sensitivities and all. But now that they've been formally requested...

Walking in the Shadow

Walking in the shadow of madness
Walking through the valley of death
Tex takes a gun, kills everyone
Says it’s all for the best
Mama is down on her haunches
Tears made bloodshot her eyes
Rage fills the streets, they’ve turned up the heat
Some other poor suckers must die

Ali is walking his Corgi
Up to the end of his street
A bottle is thrown, assailant unknown
Ali is burned to his feet
Boom goes another jet engine
Fragments resound in the air
Bodies go down, parts of em found
Good to know somebody cares

Footsoldiers appear on the Network
In uniforms pin-striped and grey
They demand choose a side, ain’t nowhere to hide
You’d better do what we say
Better build up your assets
Invest in our castles of air
Like a dog with a bone, they won’t leave you alone
Til you knock and there’s nobody there

The summer sun now is relentless
Another small island gone down
Coconuts float, so build a boat
Nobody told you to drown
They say it will cool down this evening
And then you can tuck up in bed
Sleep is a gift, it gives you a lift
It spares you from what lies ahead

La la la la la la la la
And so it goes on and on
The beggar, the thief, the Indian, the chief
All marching til everyone gone
And the band plays Waltzing Matilda
And champagne flows on the deck
You’re having a blast, so why won’t it last
Coz you’re standing on a brokedown wreck

Matcham

As already said this is a really good mix plus your vocal was excellent. But man what depressing lyrics! It was like watching the nightly news!

Great job on this one!

Matcham,

This is great. But I am confused. You say you don't like country.

This is clearly a style of classic country from way back in the day. You must mean you don't like MODERN country right, but you have no problem with Hank Williams?

A very interesting write, Matcham.

The music choice belies some of sharp edge of the lyric.

Good mix.

I am enjoying your songs.

Thanks David and Floyd. Floyd I hope you mean 'belie' in a good way. I was aiming for tension between the sharp edged lyrics and the gentle sway of the rhythm. Does it work?

David sorry if I gave the wrong impression on your thread. I was talking specifically about the drivetime country radio format. I'm a big fan of Hank Williams and many many others in the country roots pantheon. Blues and roots into Americana is all I really listen to these days.

I was just ribbin' ya mate. I loved the song, but I had to point out that you were, well, singing country, whether you wanted to or not.

But real country. Back in the day country.

Hank would be proud. No, he would probably take a swing at you and tell you that you stole his song.

But that would be a compliment.

This is such a great song and I especially like how you put it together, as it suits your voice and style of playing very well. Excellent BinaB track choices.

This belongs in a Quentin Tarantino movie. Nice production, mix & vocal.

Good job!

Hi,

Your voice sounds like Nick Cave, at some point. You come from Australia, like him, maybe it's you wink
Your orchestration is very good, you did a good job.

Hi Matcham,

Very unique and stylish!
At times this makes me think of Leonard Cohen ( and that is a real compliment ;-))

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
