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!!

Yeah it's already been guoted but it's too good to not quote again. So there. smile

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!

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.

Bob

User Tip - Midi to Keystroke "Hot Key" Win Mac (Conductor for Mac)

Forum user Pipeline shares a great 'tip' with his post Midi to Keystroke "Hot Key" Win Mac (Conductor for Mac)!

Check it out! www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=430438

Thanks for posting to our Tips & Tricks forum Pipeline!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® Version 5 Article "The Software Story"

For the latest blast from the past for Band-in-a-Box, check out the article The Software Story: Band-in-a-Box by Norm Weinberg, as published in the June 1993 issue of Percussive Notes!

Imagine a group of musicians who would rehearse with you whenever you wanted, wouldn't tire of playing the same songs over and over, could play at any tempo you wanted, could learn new tunes in a matter of minutes, and never have any ego problems? Wouldn't this be an ideal musical situation for gaining experience? Band-in-a-Box to the rescue!
-Norm Weinberg

User Post - Save as Video

Earlier this week we shared information on the Save as Video feature within Band-in-a-Box.

Forum user JoanneCooper has just shared her Band-in-a-Box video using this feature! Check out her post here, or click here watch her YouTube video.

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.
