Hi all. This is my latest effort.
Little different to recent songs.
All comments welcome. Rob

Leaving Narrabri


Can you feel the summer breeze brush against your skin.
Leaning on the door Sill as we drive.

Dont know how long its been, since we said goodbye.
To the folks back home in Narrabri.
...................................................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.
...................................................................................


Bridge

...................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.
(Where going home to Narrabri)

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.
...................................................................................

We'll keep pushing through the night till the sun begins to rise.

One more hill and we'll be home, then we'll back home in Narabri

then we'l back home in Narrabri

We'll just keep along the suns almost gone be it right or wrong.
When we're back home in Narrabri

...................................................................................................................
And I know you shed a tear and we shared a beer I held you near.
Where gonna give it one more try.

So down this empty road two lonely soles and god only knows.
where gonna make it to the end.

Good song, love your vocal on this, and I like the lyrics too.

Great job on the production too, that breakdown at 1:15 and bringing it back at 1:40 worked like a charm and really makes the song something special IMHO, nice one!

What a tune! I really enjoyed this. It is quite catchy, while maintaining a thought provoking theme. It sounds genuine and heartfelt. Not to mention, the arrangement here is on point.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

What a fantastic song! Maybe it's just me, but I totally got a hint of a Johnny Cash vibe with this particular song. Maybe it's the vocals! I really enjoyed the lyrics to this particular tune. Excellent job.

Can't wait for the next one.

Rob,

A really good lonesome road feeling to this - very nice soulful vocal and that sweetness in the melody makes me want to sing along on the chorus.
The resonator and baritone guitars sound great together.
Very good!

Robert

Hello, Rob

Very nice tune!
Beautifully performed.
I entirely agree with Robert.

Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Great track and great production. It really fits the Australiana tag. It brought the outback back home to me...
Just a quick note on the lyrics, I think you meant "we're" not "where".

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
