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

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".

I fully agree with Dave. he summed it up perfectly. This is one of your very best - of the ones I've heard. that was a real joy to listen to. Thanks for the pleasure!

Also, before I forget, the reso guitar with the deep reverb was a real nice touch!

Wishing you well,

Alan

Rob I also think that this is one if not your best today. Super mix, dynamics, lyrics and vocal.

I love these lines "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."

Great lyrics here.

Two thumbs up.

Added: Help Video button Added to the Audio Harmony dialog.
Improved: ABC opening improvements with some accidentals, and leadin bars that occur in middle of song.
Improved: Audio harmonies now used Improved algorithms, and can be easily set using N voices above, M voices below (and have additional functions like duplicate melody, and dup. melody octave below).
Improved: Lyrics will be now read from .mid files that used to be karaoke files (.kar) and got renamed somewhere along the line.
Improved: Support for RealTracks that should be transposed only lower (ie heavy metal guitars) and for future Improved metal guitar comping.
Improved: The Audio Harmony Dialog has been rearranged to be more intuitive when using Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
Fixed: Audio harmonies might be missing some notes.
Fixed: Audio harmonies would be generated with the wrong notes if selecting a range of audio in the middle of the track.

Fixed: Band-in-a-Box should show message if the latest VJT application is not installed when the user tries to render videos.
Fixed: File > Open Special > Open Audio was importing audio instead of opening it in a new song.
Fixed: In the Bar Settings window, "Chordsheet and Notation - Start a New Line" should say "Notation - Start a New Line".
Fixed: It was not possible to record audio using WAS audio drivers if "Output always on" was disabled.
Fixed: Misc. RealTracks updates.
Fixed: Quicklist drums picker sometimes showing too many drums in the list.
Fixed: Redundant flash messages were showing.
Fixed: Removing a custom drums from a track would still display Drums as the name of the loop in the track.

Fixed: The Audio Harmony dialog was missing the new Band-in-a-Box Intelligent Mode.
