Dealing with some health problems, so I can't comment much, but there has been some great stuff here lately.

Here's an oldie.

Rocky Mountain Lullabye

©2001 Robert Randall Burke


She left her home up in Baltimore
And hit out on the road
A minibus and a Coleman stove
And an old radio.

There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly
And a Rocky Mountain Lullabye
That she wanted to hear.

She stopped in a Mesa town
At the edge of the sea
Where she could watch the sun go down
Where she could be free.

There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly
And a Rocky Mountain Lullabye
That she wanted to hear.

What a cool song. Had a hint of Jimmy Buffet in the intro. Super vocal and backtrack

What a lovely, relaxing tune, 90 dB! Loving the summer vibes in this one smile I like how the lyrics tell a story too - thanks so much for sharing!

Really excellent Bob, right up to scratch, as usual.

I really have to say I loved the choice of using Pedal Steel

The Style is perfect for the song, and the lead break fills every thing out perfectly.

Stay healthy!

Nice.

I saw the Rocky Mountains for the first time when I flew home a few months back to visit my folks. It was a beautiful sight! This song reminded me of my travels. I rather enjoyed this mellow, sweet tune. Thank you for sharing!

From the start, I was thinking Marty Robbins.

Good old school country. Nothing like a "crying" steel to take you back.

The steel solo was OK. nice level bump to put it up front, but... it didn't resolve effectively. Could have been a bit better. Still nice, but .... you know.

Nice job.

"There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly
And a Rocky Mountain Lullabye
That she wanted to hear."

As always, your writing is as "tight as it comes". I could have quoted the whole thing as an example. Never a word out of place. A lesser writer would take 10 times the space to say the same thing. Truly incredible writing. With such a "comfortable" singable melody - yet another skill on display.

I assume that is you playing the opening acoustic... super! Great sound, excellent recording - great acoustic sound, perfectly played.

The backing carries this perfectly. Enjoyed hearing a steel solo. Kenney Chesney could include this on any of his current records...

Keep it up, Mr. Burke.

Scott,

It's an oldie, but it's a true story. Been playing Buffett so many years some probably rubbed off. grin

Trevor,

The pedal steel solo actually has two steel tracks playing off each other. grin

That might not be as obvious on some systems. Thanks for the listen and kind comments.

Bob.....

I just gave a listen.
Good folk ballad and I liked your vocal and your delivery works very well.

Lyrically....these lines stand out to me:
"There was a light in the Western sky
Drawin' her like a firefly"

Well done....

#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

Earlier this week we shared information on the Save as Video feature within Band-in-a-Box.

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.

Have you made a video of your song using this feature? Share it to our Forum!
