You’ve heard about my methods

This ain’t no spelling bee

Patience is no virtue

When it comes to me

Particularly liked those lyrics. Very good write!! Interesting subject matter. RTs are used perfectly-arrangement and solo couldn't have come out any better if these guys played it custom. Very well put together. Enjoyed a lot!! Take care. Greg

Fred.

You really HIT THE MARK with this one! Excellent start to finish.

Terrific, interesting write. Well sung.

Love the BAND! on this - great combination! - You're right... this sounds like a Neil Young song and production, everything about it... like a cross between the "After The Gold Rush" sound and the "Tonight's The Night" sound. Excellent mix.

Excellent! Worth many listens.

Fred, I am always drawn to that major to minor chord progression in the same line of a song. You did it well here! Also, I think most folks can relate to the line "patience is no virtue when it comes to me". Thanks for your work! Torrey.

Love your posts, Fred! That distorted rhythm guitar sounds absolutely awesome and transitions excellently into the chorus. Great write, too -- really engaging lyrics and the picture you paint fits perfectly with the instrumental.

Fred,
I very much enjoyed the unusual inspiration that comes through well in the lyrics - a nice feeling of menace there!
Terrific production and spot on guitar solos.

Robert

Autumn Leaves Video Tutorial - Band-in-a-Box Backing Tracks!

Make sure you watch this incredible tutorial video! http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=stsBqdo9Svc

Songwriting Feedback - "Why This Forum Matters"

Our Forum is a great resource when you're wanting to discuss Band-in-a-Box (or other PG Music Inc. programs), but it's so much more!

In addition to the different sections we have for our products (Band-in-a-Box, RealBand, PowerTracks, and Other PG Music Programs), there are also places on our Forum to share your songs, YouTube videos, ask for tech help for problems not related to our software, "off topic" discussions, and more!

Forum user David Snyder shared his thoughts on Why This Forum Matters in his recent Songwriting post, which has some great feedback, including:

It occurred to me this morning that it is the group effort that counts. That is, one kind word about another member's song, one piece of encouragement or generous suggestion, might cause that person to write the greatest song ever written, which might then go on to have a massive impact on some stranger's life, cause someone to fall in love, or turn their life around, and literally change the course of history. Because songs do that.

OR, one kind word given to YOU might cause you to write the greatest song ever written in the coming year, and that song could go on to have an impact on untold thousands. Who knows! It happens all the time.

But the point is, it is not about any one of us, it is about all of us, the group.

Read through the whole conversation (and join in!): http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=447431

...and a big THANK YOU to David for sharing his thoughts!
