Hi Paul and welcome to the forum.

This is an excellent first post!

A great track with an easy rolling feel to it. It's got a sort of live feel to it as well, as though I was watching a performance on the old Johnny Cash TV Show. Nice backing, super vocal style.

Yeah, loved everything about it and wouldn't change a thing.

Cheers, ROG.

Thanks for your compliments on the song. As for Summer chaser, the song has been really well executed. A very nice balance between rock/ballad and blues feel. Have you pitched it to anyone or is it more of a "My song"?

Nice sounding track. The vocals are nice and clear too. I like the upbeat bouncy feel to the tune. Very uplifting.

Video - Adding RealTracks to Your Band-in-a-Box® Song

There are 300 RealTracks Sets available (over 2,500 RealTracks!), and here at PG Music we have this to say about them: You'll want to use RealTracks in all of your projects... and you can!

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
