A great listen. A fun write. "...dropped on the floor

she was mysterious like that"... Really like that!

Creative production. Good mix. Love the guitars (nice job Torrey).

Thank you, Floyd; I wouldn`t have dreamed of giving a pure pop song a whirl until disovering BiaB and this forum... I sure hope Torrey invites me over to play at his house someday!

Thanks Graham,
I never liked Queen back in those days but have to admit there is a resemblance here!

Comments will be brief as my wife is experiencing serious medical issues.

very nice!

Alan,
Your taking the time to listen and comment- particularly at this tough time, is much appreciated.

Only complaint is it was too short smile


Dave,
Thanks for that - especially pleased you enjoyed my vocal effort.
Pre-Revolver I`m not sure the lads recorded anything over 3 minutes, so that was my limit starting out.
It helps when you have a guitarist like Torrey who can peel off
the riffs with no room to spare!

That was fun! Very inventive - excellent lyrics and wonderful guitar parts by Torrey that have a Brian May feel.

A real treat.

Hello, Robert

You pioneered a new ground.
Very splendid collaboration with Torrey!
Guitar tone is really Beatlish.
Vocals and harmonies are also cool.
And there is ingenuity in the chord progression as usual, I feel your composing style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Greg,
Glad you enjoyed this.
I used a Nectar pop preset on the vocals which are doubled ( and I think Torrey added another EQ).
Thanks for your listen.

Hi Shigeki,
Yes, I thought Torrey really got that George sound on the guitar too!
Thanks for mentioning the progression - most of it is very similar to Obladi Oblada, but I thought the chorus had a bit more Lennon in there.
I appreciate your kind comments.

Robert

Revolver or Rubber Soul > nailed!

It's been, shall I say, a trip watching you branch out more and more. Congrats on setting the high target...and hitting it.

An inventive lyric, engaging vocal, fine guitars and mix all adds up to one of the coolest tunes posted here in a while.

Collabs are fun and when they produce like this...Wow!!!

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

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 love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

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