Your song does an excellent job of portraying the mood you intended to provoke. Sweet sound and the Gretsch was a great choice for this one. They have a distinctive sound that can't be imitated by other brands.

Great playing and lots of "feel" in the delivery. A really great track! Best to you,

Alan


Thanks Alan Glad you liked the song

Sweet, Sweet Tune!! Great playing-lots of emotion and great tone. Love the WAH! My best advice for the political stuff is avoid FB/Twitter. The news is bad enough. I try to find some kind of fascination with the current time and not let it drag me down emotionally but it is tough. Nice work here!! Take care. Greg

Scott,

You've really outshone yourself with this composition; and that is saying something because your work is always excellent!

I set the tune playing, closed my eyes and just let you carry me along on a river of audio imagery. I really enjoyed it. The mood your created made me feel reflective and peaceful. It's always really pleasant to hear songs in a mostly minor key. When you coupled that with a 12/8 feel, you had me in the palm of your hand!

Really enjoyed it!

All the best,
Noel

12/8 beat reminds me of "A house of the rising sun" a little bit.
As trevor said, I also thought the WahWah fx was a little unexpected, but added to the 'melancholy' you set out to deliver.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi


Thank you Shigeki for checking out the song. Yes I seem to gravitate towards the 12/8 time signature and minor chords. I really love the sound of the guitar playing through this chords.

Glad to hear you are on Songtradr -- I would think you could have success there given the quality and highly melodic playing of your instrumentals.

We enjoyed the tune -- the wah was special and the mix sounds super.

Thanks Janice and Bud Glad you like the song. Thanks or the kind comments

I thought I had commented on this song several days back, but when I scrolled through, I couldn't find my post. Sorry about that!

This is really nice. One of my favorites of yours. The guitar sounds just perfect for this one. Great job, great feel, great tone, and the wah really adds a nice touch to it.

Steve

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.new.htm
