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

Great RT band! Well selected and mixed. It has the "pro sound"
on our monitors for sure.

We are fans of film noir also...as Robert said "a nice feeling of menace there!"

Everything is nailed. The arrangement, vocals...heck, the entire production
is hittin' the note.

Superb!

Summary:

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
