Going back to blue
https://soundcloud.com/dr-buddy-love/going-back-to-blue

Style is _CNTRYMF.STY (Medium-Fast Even 8th Country w/ )

RealTracks in song: 1255:Bass, Electric, PopShiningA-B Ev 120
RealTracks in song: 2975:Vocal Oohs-Aahs, Rhythm Pop3-part Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 1256:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopShiningGritty Ev 120
RealTracks in song: ~~686:Organ, B3, Background Pop Ev 120
RealTracks in song: 3053:Accordion, Rhythm PopRockCory Ev 120
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven8^6-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat Open

I had the pre-chorus and chorus for a long time and couldn't find a verse I liked. A friend said put it out anyway, you can always change it later. So here it is. I think I went a little overboard on the tube overdrive on the vocals, but I liked the performance so I kept it. Hope you like it.

Hello Zydecoal. Your style is very similar to one of our forum members.
I found this tune catchy and well constructed. Great mix and chord progression.

Hello, "zydecoal"...

Cool User's Forum handle cool !!!

The energy in "Going Back To Blue" makes it sound like it was recorded for an audience gathered at a big party for the band's release of the song. It's upbeat, the RealTracks are energetic, your vocal is clear and soaring, and the quick tempo changes added the element of surprise. Your apparent free-wheeling chord structure is colorful and adds an exuberant feel to the music.

It'd be great if you'd provide us with the lyrics, because the music and your vocal are so sweet to listen to. Your singing voice reminds me of whichever musician sang the lead vocals for Steely Dan's songs.

This was fun to listen to, and not a little nostalgic!

Big smile,

LOREN

Wow - what a tune! I find it to be very reminiscent of the 80's, which is most definitely not a bad thing. It is really easy to tap your foot and bob along to. The chords and your vocal performance are wonderfully catchy. It's got a lot of energy, a fantastic groove, and enough change-ups to keep it continuously interesting.

Great work, and thanks so much for sharing smile

thanks for the kind words. here are the lyrics
Going back to blue

I bought Kerouac a beer and I roadied for the Stones
I know everybody here but I'm going home alone.

Peter Pan's going to pee his pants when he learns we are through

You can go where you want to but I'm going back to blue
going back to blue, that's just something I thought I'd never do
you can go where you want to but I'm going back to blue

It's a mystery to me how this bloody thing went down
ancient history to me since she blew out of this town

Full blast turned to half assed and then I just got numb

chorus

pain to Portland and back again. Send the bad news to Pembleton.
I put my foot down but I slipped on the ice.
I want to tell her that I love her but I wont tell her twice

instrumental- chorus twice

So glad you posted the lyrics as sometimes I have a hard time knowing what someone is saying especially if they have an accent.
Nice upbeat song and like the imagery in the lyrics. Has a rock n roll feeling.

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!!!
