This is one super song and a keeper.

Thanks, Mario...

floyd, this is another one of your "hits"! Very well crafted. Sounds like something Vince Gill would do - and that's a real compliment in my book.

You just keep cranking them out.

Great sound, and feel to this one. Everything well up to your usual standards of excellence!

I really enjoyed this one Floyd. There's some excellent chord charting going on behind those great vocals and backing vocals. This one is one of my favorites that's been posted here on the forum in a while. It's more sophisticated than it sounds - now go humble yourself and thank your wife...

Hello, floyd

Really nice melody and vocals as usual!
The simple blues chord progression is very pleasant.
The tight drums are also very comfortable.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Love this from the very beginning. Sounds like an old Waylon Genings song and God knows I love me some outlaw music. Great vocal harmonies and superb guitar work.

Great job on this - thanks so much for sharing smile

Thanks, Deryk! Very nice of your to say... I think that RealTrack - 2688:Guitar, Electric, Soloist RockBrentSimple - is one of the best ever done. I've used it in several songs recently - and get a little bit different flavor in each of them - so it does not seems redundant at all...

This song has one of the catchiest choruses I`ve heard here and those Janice harmonies are mixed so we can hear how good she is.
Also that little vocal swoop you do on "little bit of me" is cool.


Robert - thanks for noting those things. You always seem to pick up on "the details"... that is TRULY appreciated...

Yeah, I know, the same goes for Rob from time to time.
I think it's a 'male musician' kind of thing wink

But the song, however, is very nice, not too overbearing.
Good backing vocals by Janice.


Anne-Marie - thanks for that. I always love having Janice singing with me...

#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.
