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!

I agree super intro on this tune. Excellent vocal and very cool lyrics. Guitar as always was exceptional.

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...)

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Windows Ear Training!

Do you want to develop your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition? Check out the great ear training games 'Music Replay' and 'Pitch Invasion' included with Band-in-a-Box® for Windows!

Access these when you select the Practice button in the program and choosing to "Launch" either of these from the menu that appears. You can also access these if you open the main "Practice Central..." selection from the same Practice menu. The Practice Window offers the user easy access to different Playalong features (like Soloing Trade 4's, Chord Breaks, Guitar Tutor, etc.), tempo adjustments, 101 Riffs, Ear Training games, and more!

What is Music Replay?
Music Replay focuses on developing three musical skills:
Replay Note helps to develope pitch recognition skills
Replay Rhythm developes the ability to recognize and play different rhythms.
Replay Melody combines Note and Rhythm - 1 bar melodies are played, and the user must play them back with the correct pitch and rhythm!

What is Pitch Invasion?
In the feel of a classic arcade game, "aliens" decent an your planet with the hopes of stealing your 15 instruments - and you can't let them! How do you destroy them? Match the pitch the alien is playing before it hits the ground! The more aliens you destroy, the faster they move! This challenging (and fun!) game also has an App available on iTunes.

#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!

User Post - Save as Video

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.
