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....

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.

Read even more great feedback here.
