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"?

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Thank You!

Take a look at some of the recent feedback we've received from program users just like you:

"I started using Band-in-a-Box October 2016 . It's been money very well spent. I'm now nearing the finish of my first All Originals Cd. I let a local musician hear some of the songs and he was amazed at the quality. Guys it takes time and effort to learn but its worth it 100%!"
-John S.

"Amazing RealTracks I have used these on 30 or more songs! Some even used complex chords that amazed me how well the Banjo still worked. Unbelievable Software! All the backup band you will ever need no matter what your skill level!"
-Tom C.

"Like lots of others I use it all the time, putting in the chords of a tune, choosing the right style and tempo is a godsend, I'm a jazz musician and playing tunes and improvising with chords in front of you is brilliant, less than an hour ago I was playing my tenor sax along with my Band-in-a-Box backing band."
-Barrie M.

"I love Band-in-a-Box! I use it every day to practice, compose, and teach guitar lessons. Keep up the great work, PG!"
