Bob, I really like the way the repetitive lines draw you in and then the way the third line in every verse delivers the mail. Again, very poetic and the simple arrangement and melody are perfect for this. The accordion was a inspired choice. This may be one of my favorites from you. Excellent. Tom

LOVE THIS:

Chorus:
She's broken the rules and left her outpost
She follows me around from coast to coast
I can't see her face but I feel her approach
Like a radio ghost
Like a radio ghost

Yeah!!


Another Bob Dean Classic!! Loved the lyrics, vibe and vocal delivery as always.

You have a very unique sound as an artist and I always look forward to your songs.

Another great one.

Happy 2017!!

Wonderful write, vocal and production. You cross genres but carry your cool signature sound with you. Nice.

We much enjoyed this one!

Bob,

This is one of your best! The lyrics are mysterious and hooked me in right away; the production (especially the accordion in the background and phased? guitar at the end) just about perfect.
Great way to start the year!

Robert

Bob, I agree with Kenny. Exactly what I though - What a song! A terrific listen. I was reading along with the lyrics and kept having to look back to see what RT you were using. The mandolin was a great start. The solo electric worked really well. The accordion was a great add. The guitar ending was excellent (I think you added a delay to it?).

Excellent vocal.

Simply - enjoyable...

Robert,

Thanks so much - that's very kind of you. The guitar track at the end of the song was layered and out of sync with itself - then I added a delay effect - I wanted it to have a swirling / breathing feel.

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.
