This is a very cool song George. I like to noodle as well. Most of my songs come from experimenting with riffs on the guitar then adding the backtrack. Your guitar was excellent. Please share some more of your tunes

Great work here, George! I really like arrangement here, and the songwriting is really top notch. It makes me think of an 80's version of Arcade Fire almost, if you have ever listened to them. It's got a great groove through the whole thing, and it's the perfect level of catchiness.

Good job, and thanks so much for sharing smile

Hi George,

Nice to "meet' you!

I think Deryk summed up my thoughts very nicely - good song that I like a lot. Nice arrangement and backing tracks. I really enjoyed it.

Like Scott, many of my songs come from me sitting around and just playing random riffs on my guitar and then one of them strikes me such that ui might be able to expand it into a real song. Sometimes it workjs, other times, not so much.

Please post more of your music. Most of us would enjoy that. Wishing you well,

Alan

Hi George, Man that was a great listen! Excellent Job on everything Vocals and production! This energetic tune had me imagining Johnny Cash stepping aside and letting Roy Orbison sing one of his hits! Good work! Thanks, Torrey

Scott,
Thank you for your kind words, very pleasing.
I only play guitar for the chord progression then the melody happens in my head.

Deryk,
I must confess, it is all Band in a Box, I only chose the sound that seemed to fit.
The songwriting just happens, no real input from me, someone just taps me on the shoulder and there it is.

Alan,
Nice to "meet" you too.
Thank you for taking a listen and your kind words.

Floyd,
Perhaps the instruments were a little too much, as Mac used to say "less is more".
The vocal was difficult for me as I only have a plastic microphone wand and had to get rid of all the noise it produces.

Torrey,
Thanks so much for placing me into the great musicians like those two, although I don't see myself anywhere near them.
But thank you anyway.

Rob,
Thank you for the kind words.

George

I love the almost beach-y feel that this song has. That may just be because of the image you selected on SoundCloud, but I feel it's really fitting! smile You did a really great job here. I also love that bluegrass feel the song has. <3 Thanks for sharing!

George,
I enjoyed the pop catchiness of this song and the difference you brought to the style by adding different instruments... and your vocal sounds fine.
Looking forward to more.

Robert

Hi Robert,

I had some work to do to get my vocal clean enough to work.
I think I will have to invest in a proper microphone.
Thank you for listening.

#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.
