"The postmarks keep changing
They show where you’ve been
Lost and found
And then lost again"

Nice.

Good job on all aspects of this, Fred. Just the right tracks to do this type of song (ah...I remember those times...). Excellent mix.

This had a Jerry Jeff Walker vibe, I thought... (always a good thing)..

Very pleasant song and evokes the influences you mentioned (Neil Young in particular for me on this one).

Nice one that well stood the test of time.

Enjoyed it all -- the vocal, the arrangement and the mix.

"I held you for a while

But I couldn’t hold you back"

That is a gem.

Video - Adding RealTracks to Your Band-in-a-Box® Song

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

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.
