Won't Bring Her Home

A tale of love lost:

Won’t Bring Her Home


Yesterday I was a rooster
Today I’m just a feather duster
Rising from my bed this morning
Took all the willpower I could muster
But all the willpower in the world
Won’t bring back my darling girl
All the messages I left upon her phone

Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home

I begged for her forgiveness
Said it didn’t mean a thing
But she just looked right through me
Slipped off her wedding ring
All my tears and my excuses
They won’t ever change her mind
Beg her to think about the happiness we’ve known

Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home

Yesterday I was a fool
All the things I took for granted
How did I slide so far down?
From the heights that I commanded
All the stupid little lies
All the hurt I trivialized
Blame it all upon that damn y chromosome

Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home
Won’t bring her home

Nice one!

Some very cool lines, I especially like the opening line "Yesterday I was a rooster
Today I’m just a feather duster" and the closing line "All the hurt I trivialized
Blame it all upon that damn y chromosome"

Lovely fluid and melodic guitar playing, just the way I like to hear it.

Good tune you two, enjoyed!

Leon & Peter...

Cool song. Rhyming chromosome/home was original!

Very cool instrumentation. Excellent mix. Good vocal.

SUPER nice guitar! Sounded like George Harrison was in the studio!!! Terrific.

Nice laid back vocal and cool guitar.
Cheers.

Clever write Peter. I really liked the chord progression and the drum groove.
And of course the guitar work was excellent.
Great write my friend. Rob

I couldn't agree more. A really good write, arrangement and delivery. It has it all. Cool song and great job by both of you. Merry Christmas,

Peter & Leon,
Who could resist that opening line? - brilliant!
I liked the "won`t bring her home" refrain ( catchy in a foreboding way) and I always enjoy Leon`s vocal style.
Then there`s the guitar playing; up there with your best, Peter!

Really enjoyed this Peter & Leon.

You delivered something from inside the box but outside the square wink .

Cool guitar lines, a bit of Santana might have snuck in there even, and all wrapped up with a top drivin' beat.

Great effort.

#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.

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is Here!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is here! PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 includes many new features and enhancements:

Windows Audio (WASAPI) driver support. This allows for low latency audio recording/playback without requiring ASIO. Note that this supports 1 stereo input plus 1 stereo output at a time. For multiple inputs/outputs, you should continue to use either MME or ASIO.

ABC Notation format support. You can save a track of notation in a popular ASCII text format to import into other programs, or you can paste this format into a user forum as a way of sending the track (usually the melody and chord symbols) to other users without having to attach a file.

The built-in Audio Chord Wizard detection in the Chords window automatically detects the chords of the song, based on the audio data from all non-muted audio tracks. This works similar to the standalone Audio Chord Wizard, except that it uses the current bar lines of the existing song.

Notation Enhancements:
-X/8 time signature support. This is a special method of displaying 6/8, 9/8, or 12/8 time signatures in the Notation window.
-The Duplicate previous chord in notation right-click menu lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (group of notes on same peg) without having to reenter it.
-Delete highlighted notes in notation right-click menu lets you delete all highlighted notes.
-Delete all notes on this peg in notation right-click menu lets you delete all notes on the nearest peg that was clicked on.
-You can now enter Section Numbers. Previously, you could enter letters (A-Z) only, but now you can also enter numbers (1-9).

...a full list of the new features in PowerTracks Pro Audio 2018 is available at http://www.pgmusic.com/powertracks.features.htm
