Walk All The Way To The Moon


The sun comes up with a blinding light
but there’s no guarantees
I always look to the sky Like a sailor to the sea
Trying to make one last escape
let’s make our move tonight
Based on all the evidence
I think we’ll be alright

Boundaries blurred by the path of light
walk all the way to the moon
We can save what’s left of us
Lord I hope we get there soon


None of my business what you think of me
I guess I could care less though you may disagree
it’s always been it’s nothing new
That's what the old ones say
we’re simply passing through
Like rain moving cross the bay

Boundaries blurred by the path of light
walk all the way to the moon
We can save what’s left of us
Lord I hope we get there soon

This is a great listen, Tom.

A good Rock write. Everything about it works - at every moment.

Brings to mind every classic rock band one can think of - yet doesn't seem like a "copy" of any one in particular. That's cool - a little ZZ Top, a little AC/DC, a little BTO (mixed with some Guess Who), a little Skynyrd..

The mix is exceptional. Powerful instruments and a clean, clear vocal - professional in every way. Exceptional guitars! Love the stop! Super lead.

And... for a Country guy, you do one heck of a Rock vocal!

Top-notch.

Tom,

Great guitar driven sound- that chorus hook is so catchy and your vocal has just the right amount of attitude.
Loved this!

Cool tune. Some excellent chord progressions. I agree with Floyd. I grew up on the Guess Who and BTO and definitely has that vibe. Well done

Agree with the other posts on some of the bands this reminded me of.

I even got a "Hot Blooded - Foreigner" vibe on the verses a little bit.

I liked this a lot. Great work!

floyd, This one was a lot of fun for me. Going way back, for me Rock came first, then Blues, then Country. It all bleeds together somewhat. Thanks for the wonderful review. I certainly value your comments, Tom

YEAH!!!! Great hearing you rock out!

Guitars are perfect, as is the vocal. And the mix! Totally pro as usual.

Great song, better than most of the music I hear on my local rock radio station these days.

Oh yeah!! We are down with the hint of early Skynrd - the good original band. This sounds like it would fit perfectly on any radio classic rock show. It’s that good.

As you responded to floyd...rock to blues to country. And you retain the goodness of them all.

Great write, vocal and signature TA production to top it all off.

A little information about Michael Dolce :

He has worked with Delta Goodrem, Lionel Richie, The Madden Brothers, Good Charlotte, Keith Urban, Kelly Rowland, Kylie Minogue, Roachford, Jessica Mauboy, Ricky Martin, Ronan Keating, Jessie J, Seal, Will-I-Am, Paulini, Marvin Priest and many more. He is the house guitarist for the hit show 'The Voice' and has been touring the country with his 'Masterclass' series for the past 3 years sharing his concepts, approach, technique and knowledge.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows - User Programmable Functions

But, what if you want to be able to tell the program to do MORE than that?

Head to Chapter 14: User Programmable Functions within the online manual, and you'll learn more about programmable features like:

The StyleMaker
Create brand-new styles or edit existing styles!

Making RealDrums Styles
Template file included! You can either record a drummer, or you can piece together a wave file using drum loops!

The Harmony Maker
Create or edit your own (or existing) harmonies!

The Soloist Maker and The Melodist Maker
Define your own Soloists or Melodists in whichever style you'd like!

The Guitarist Maker
The program will intelligently arrange any melody to a guitar chord solo by inserting real guitar voicings throughout the piece. There are many preloaded Guitarists to choose from, or you can customize existing Guitarists’ settings or make your own Guitarists from scratch using this feature.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017 Review - Software for Learning Saxophone

McGill Music Sax School posted a video review of Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows last year, stating "I love using software to help learn saxophone. One of my favourite programs is Band-in-a-Box. It's a really powerful tool for quickly making backing tracks I can use for lessons, or my own practice."

Check it out! www.pgmusic.com/?vid=2AgfV7emdLQ

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
