Movin
J.Kenney© 2011


I’d like to write a song that sounds real bluesy
come off when I sing as kinda moody
Can’t really push it all that hard
Cuz everyone is gonna see right through me

Don’t want a ticket to no one-way street
All I really want is someone tapping their feet
And kinda movin - just kinda movin

Ain’t tryin for a song that makes you crazy
I’ll use a beat that kinda makes you lazy
Don’t want to make it all that sharp
Cuz everything should be a little hazy

I ain’t really done this all that much
you almost have to picture just releasing the clutch
to get you movin - just get you movin

( Lead)

I kinda took a shot at something different
not the way I usually give it
I guess I just had to give it a whirl
if you don't enjoy it then forget it

I used a story of a one-way street
Just to kinda get ya to tap your feet
and start to movin - just start to movin

This was a very early band in a box groove...and since I went from pc to mac I don't know which tracks I used sorry.

I've put a few songs up, but haven't garnered much attention. Thanks for the review

John,

We really liked this! Some Southern Blues Rock - sweet! The vocal is spot on and the backing tracks are perfect for the song.

The fx on the lead guitar was a nice surprise. Lyric real nice, too.

Thanks for a real nice listen - enjoyed it a lot! Best to you,

Alan & Di

Yeah, Like Kenny said JJ!

Love that chug-a-lug groove.

-well written
-well performed (vocals and guitars)
-well arranged
-well mixed

A fine production with everything just hittin' the note.

It sounds GREAT on our monitors!

J&B



PS You said "I've put a few songs up, but haven't garnered much attention."

With a big FWIW here are a few thoughts from our five years here that seem to hel help ease new folks (we were all there) into the community.

- consider establishing a soundcloud account as that is sort of the musical hub that the forum revolves around. PG Music folks often feature poster's songs on both their front page and on their featured SC channel. Plus J&B can then add your songs to our personal SC favorites playlist smile

- Posts can rapidly fall to the bottom or off the page during very active times before they get deserved attention. Bouncing your song to the top with a response to a post is a frequently used and completely acceptable means of keeping it active.

- consider commenting on as many posted songs as is practical and time allows. Let folks know you are here.

Pardon the ole guy ramble!

That guitar was so what I wanted to hear too!

Still smilin' on this side.

Thanks for the review I truly appreciate the input.

I, in fact, do have a SoundCloud account....but it is the free one so I end up taking songs off to put songs on (reached my limit) So I was, am, trying out the BandCamp site as they don't seem to have a limit so far for free.

Retired fixed income days facilitate such decisions

I realize commenting on comments makes the numbers rise but it's kinda cheating to me....(just me)
Songs are either accepted or they aren't it's cool. I was just replying to the 'welcome to the site' comment.

And I too am an ole guy ramblin from time to time

My youth was spent on performing live and living free when I was younger.....now I sit at home and try to do all the things I never could before all of this tech was around.

Thanks again

John

John, I also hear that JJ Cale influence. Love the groove. Some really good guitar going on. Good vocals and the mix sounds good. There is a lot to like here. Keep writing and posting. We need more cool songs like this. Tom

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!!!

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.new.htm
