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.

And to steal from Noel "What a great backing! And you sound really comfortable singing against it. I enjoyed the listen. Why don't we hear more from you? You've definitely got a talent to share."

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.

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

Charlie... this is good. Reminds me of PPL and that's a good thing.

Nice work. Good job on the song and the vocals.

I appreciate your thoughtful comments.

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.

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.

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.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm

Band-in-a-Box® Customer Feedback - Feel The Love!

Check out some great feedback we've received on our Facebook account from program users:

"I have been using Band-in-a-Box for years. It is the anchor of my music gigs as well as my fun in my studio. I have used other software but Band-in-a-Box is my main go to."
-Jack T.

"Love Band-in-a-Box. As someone who played professionally for 20 years and retired from live performing years ago, I still love music. Band-in-a-Box allows me to create fun arrangements which I can sing over or play over. There are THOUSANDS of different variations plus you can enter any chords you like and create any chart. It's also great for creating background tracks for videos and audio content for websites, training etc. And like everything else in the world . . . it may not be right for everyone. For those who love music and don't have the time to shed five or six instruments it's way cool."
-Vinnie R.

"This program has completely changed my playing for the good. I can experiment with playing chords and leads over various scenarios that I can quickly create and change. Love this program. I use it nearly every day."
-Dave R.

"I bought my first version in 1994 and have progressed to 2018 version. I use it to create backing tracks for live music performance. I currently have over 2,000 songs performance ready. If you can and type, and use mouse it will work for you."
-Roger M.

"The premiere reason for me for buying this program; it has given me the freedom to fully complete the foundation for my songs without the confinement of limited minded musicians. After the song concept is complete, it can then be presented those musicians to play as a cover song. Also writing a song with a band gives them partial ownership of your idea... not cool... especially since they may have fought your idea every step of the way.. Every member of an organized band should own a copy of this program to compose or to even give legitimate composition alternatives to the original songwriter."
-Paul V.

Thanks everyone!

Support for ABC Notation Format in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows!

ABC notation is the simple text-based notation system used by musicians worldwide to store chords, melody, and lyrics of songs. Now with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows you can open and save songs in ABC notation format!
