Hi Charlie,

We loved it! Although it's traditional country, it still hass an element of a more contemporary song. That's a good combination, in our opinion. As has been said previously ... great backing tracks! Superb in every way! Wish we heard from you more often!

Charlie, This is without a doubt your best vocal. Very comfortable and confident. A good write that is very well produced. Nice going. Tom

I got the refrain idea from a Ralph Murphy lecture on YouTube. Repeat the title within the first 60 seconds and average at least 7 repeats. Glad you enjoyed your listen.

Indeed!

J&B


Thanks for listening and the kind comments. I thought the imagery would be good for a video too but I'm not so sure that doing a video is a sharable talent I have.

Robert


Thanks for the nice comments and GD comparison. That's quite a compliment.

Nice guitar and Lyrics

Thanks Paul. I appreciate you taking time to listen and comment. Glad you enjoyed it.

Band in a Box is the greatest gift I can think of to guide me through my retirement years. I'm so very thankful to have gotten on this train. I appreciate you taking time to listen and comment.

Thanks for the PPL comparison. They were the bar I set for myself very early in my songwriting. Just being close feels good.

Hello, Charlie

You have a very good voice.
The chord progression is unique and new.
This is a contemporary Country.
As Noel said, you sound really comfortable singing against the great backing track.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Thanks for your gracious comments. I've always liked how that chord progression flows on uptempo songs. It doesn't work so well in ballads I think.

Regarding my vocals, I ended up using an old Nady RM-2 Ribbon mic and it seemed to have a better tone than the first mic I used that made my voice sound thin. Must have helped a bit this time.

Thanks for listening and taking time to comment.

Thanks Peter. This was a fun project. It all came together rather quickly.

Charlie,

This is a terrific listen. A solid country rock write with nice imagery and emotion (sad as it might be). (Ralph has a way of "hitting the nail on the head" in his concepts - and a sweetheart of a guy). The repeat of "every time" works really well (every time!).

A really nice collection of instruments - all used at appropriate times - for a full, smooth sound. Excellent mix. There are elements of a "modern sound", but overall, for me, harkens back to the best of the beginnings of country rock - Flying Burrito Brothers, Poco, Graham Parsons, early Eagles...

As others have noted, your vocal on this is excellent... really "in the pocket" for the sound...

Nice.

floyd

Great song Charlie!! This is so easy to listen to. Very engaging lyric, and such a pleasant, slightly retro vibe (little Grateful Dead). Your vocal is so nice. I'm conflicted about the stops (maybe too many in succession) but everything else absolutely knocks me out. Awesome!! Take care. Greg

The song has been around awhile but you've really put some energy into the performance and made the song sound new to me. Personally I think this is your best performance to date.

floyd

Thanks for listening Floyd. Yea, I spent some time watching Mr. Ralph's YouTube lecture. It seems he takes the #1 hits from Pop and Country each year and analyzes them to determine what common elements they share. It was really worth the time. This song encompassed several of his 'sure hit' elements so I thought I'd float it out on the forum. I'm blaming my ribbon mic for my vocals having tone this time....

And for "in the pocket", I'm pleased that you and several others have picked up the vibe this song falls into the Country Rock genre. It's my favorite place to be.

Hi Greg. Thanks for listening and taken time to comment. The stops were one area of the song I wasn't completely satisfied with in the end. I would have preferred that each would be a bit more abrupt and have more pop to them. I didn't spend a lot of time trying to correct that, but the time I did spend never yielded any satisfaction. The succession of five was the best sounding out of all that I tried. I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of the song. I always appreciate your analysis and suggestions.

Thanks Jim. This is a personal favorite of mine as well. Maybe it caused me to put a bit more into my performance. I've always liked the song but felt it could be improved on, especially the lyrics. The Ralph Murphy video helped motivate the lyrics rewrite. Glad you enjoyed it.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!
