Usually when you hear the phrase " unintended consequences " it is about something bad. Not necessarily the case. Many thanks to all that listen and comment.

Wrong Turn

Always said I was a traveller never settle down

No woman’s gonna tame me then I’d laugh out loud

guess that i knew better than to believe in my own lies

a master of deception a total waste of time


late at night I’d have a thought life is better shared

Once again I laughed it off as if I didn’t care


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home



sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals

I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know

don’t want to have to go through all that pain again

Hard to feel any warmth at all from the places that I’ve been


Whenever it gets colder you can hear the north wind blow

And every time I hold her I thank God I’m not alone


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home

Great intro, super guitar!

The intro is so important to grab listeners
and too often ignored by songwriters.

This has a strong hook

Such a solid song, has feeling and the execution
and production is top notch

Tommy you're a pro

enjoyed!

Kenny

Pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

Sounds like a hit to me, but then all your songs do!

Great job on this, Tommy! As it was mentioned by others, the hook on this song is truly grabbing. I could imagine hearing this on the radio, no questions asked! Keep up the amazing work, can't wait to hear more from you smile

Tommy,

Once again you have delivered a very melodic rock song, with very cool guitar work as usual!

Tom,

Now this is the kind of song I wish I could find on the radio -
a super intro ( so I`m not tempted to fast forward) and with a great hook on the chorus that had me humming along the second time round.
The bonus is in the lyrics - such a neat twist on the familiar and with some really cool lines:

"sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals

I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know"

Very enjoyable music!

Robert

Hi Tom,

Clicking onto one of your songs is like tuning into a radio station that doesn't exist but sure as hell should. We could listen to a station playing your songs all day - and probably all night, too.

As everyone has already commented, your intro is an instant attention grabber. This sounds as professional as anything we've heard here and a lot of other places. The play on words with "wrong turn" and "wrong way home" meld perfectly for the story in the lyric.

The arrangement is thoughtfully structured with lots of variety, yet keeping everything perfectly melded. Plainly stated, this is damned good music!

Thanks for a great listen.

Alan & Di

Kenny, I have always been a sucker for a signature lick. Think of all the great songs that you can identify immediately from the opening guitar part. Thanks for all the generous comments. They are appreciated. Tom

"late at night I’d have a thought life is better shared

Nice.

And, already mentioned...
"sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals
I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know"

Consistently excellent. Write, vocals, mix. Nice guitar licks.

Super, super, super. Top-notch all around. (Think I'll just copy this for the next song...)

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.
